Texters One Win Away For The Championship

TALK N Text is set to reclaim its PBA Philippine Cup crown and all because of a collective determined mindset.

“Everybody in our locker room understand there’s one more step to take and we’re 48 minutes away,” related Jimmy Alapag after playing a key role in the Tropang Texters’ 99-77 win over the San Miguel Beermen Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum.

“Before the game we were ready to play 96 minutes of great basketball,” TNT coach Chot Reyes said after his team broke out of a 2-2 tie in the series and moved within another win away of wrapping up the best-of-seven duel and recapturing the crown the Texters last held in the 2008-09 season.

Game 6 is set Friday, also at the Big Dome.
