Blowing away a 26-point bubble and falling behind entering the home stretch, the Barangay Ginebra Kings had looked goners.
But Joe Devance scored in the nick of time to force overtime and the Gin Kings found a way to deny the San Miguel Beermen from moving within two wins of a PBA Philippine Cup three-peat.
To the delight of majority of the full-house crowd at the Quezon Convention Center here, the Kings didn’t run out of heroes in the extra period as they smothered the Beermen, 124-118, to draw even after two games of the best-of-seven finale. They break the tie in Game Three at 7p.m. Wednesday over at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
No article can tell you how exciting the tight game 2 was. The crowd at the Quezon Convention Center got their money’s worth and probably more.
