Ginebra snaps three-game skid with big win over Alaska

Barangay Ginebra San Miguel, behind some fourth quarter heroics from point guard LA Tenorio, pulled off a big-time victory over erstwhile league-leader Alaska, 101-92, to pick up a badly-needed win in the PBA Philippine Cup on Tuesday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Tenorio scored a team-high 22 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter, and knocked down four three-pointers as he helped the Kings snap out of a three-game funk.

The Ginebra captain scored the team’s last five points in an 11-4 run early in the final period that opened up an 11-point lead for the Kings, one that they would protect until the final buzzer.

RR Garcia plays hero as Barako Bull holds off NLEX

Sophomore guard RR Garcia played the hero as the Barako Bull Energy survived a late rally from NLEX to win, 92-87, on Tuesday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Garcia scored a team-high 22 points and made several big plays late in the game as he helped his team clinch a fourth win in 10 PBA Philippine Cup games so far.

Uyloan, Tang take charge as Rain or Shine slips past Purefoods

TY Tang scored off an offensive rebound while Jonathan Uyloan drained a clutch three-pointer as the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters turned back a streaking Purefoods Star Hotshots, 83-74, in the 2015 PBA Philippine Cup on Sunday, November 30 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Former La Salle standout Tang, 30, stopped the bleeding for Rain or Shine with his putback, 77-72, after Purefoods rallied from a 72-62 deficit and inched to within 75-72 nearing the 3-minute mark of the fourth.

And even as the Hotshots employed a full-court press to rattle the Painters, guard Paul Lee found a wide open Uyloan on the wing and the 31-year old, who went undrafted in 2009 but was signed by Rain or Shine, calmly sank the trey that gave his team some cushion, 80-72, with 1:50 left.
