Like what I’ve said from the start, it’s gonna be defense versus defense. It’s gonna be a grind out win, and then we expected it this game that it’s not gonna be easy compared to Game 1.”“True enough, they came out really aggressive and attacked the basket. They attacked our bigs, they attacked the mismatches, but good thing that down the stretch we came out really focused and aggressive.”Tenorio uncorked 10 of his 14 points in the payoff period, on top of three rebounds as he and teamed up with import Justin Brownlee to lift Ginebra down the stretch.The Gin Kings are halfway into their bid to retain the title and Tenorio wants no letup with Game 3 set on Wednesday.“To be honest, 2-0 is still nothing. We know miracles can still happen in this league, so we really have to come out stronger,” he said. “The series is not yet over. It’s still far, far from over.”ADVERTISEMENT View comments Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales? Legends Jaworski, Arnaiz grace Game 2 of PBA Finalslast_img read more
