MANILA, Philippines—Meralco knotted its five-game series against Barangay Ginebra with a masterful 95-77 win in Game of the semifinals of the PBA Philippine Cup Friday at Angeles University Foundation.
The Bolts churned out a near perfect fourth quarter, jumping on the Gin Kings with a potent offense and stingy defense to tie the series at 1-1.
Holding the Gin Kings to a paltry 5-of-17 shooting, or 29.4 percent, Meralco had its own field day on the offensive end going 12-of-23 from the field, 52.2%, while also outrebounding the Gin Kings 16-8 in the fourth quarter.
Chris Newsome’s and-one play capped off Meralco’s blistering 15-0 run for the 85-67 lead with 5:14 to play.
