World News – AU – PBA: Belga wants it to rain or shine in front of Ginebra in OT


MANILA, Philippines – Beau Belga blossomed on the stretch as Rain or Shine passed Barangay Ginebra, 85-82 in overtime in the PBA Philippine Cup on Tuesday night at AUF Sports Arena & Cultural Center in Angeles, Pampanga

With the Elasto Painters down by two, Belga scored for his team’s seven consecutive points, including an inside basket and a 3 points for a 83-78 cushion with 1:34 remaining

Belga, who also delivered a nifty dish to Mark Borboran for the play bucket as part of Rain or Shine’s grueling OT run, recorded 20 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and two steals

Borboran added 16 points and five rebounds while being a valuable piece on the defensive end late in the game when he shot a key offensive foul on Japeth Aguilar and a crucial steal in the extra session

A 3 points by Rey Nambatac with 14 seconds left followed by a Gabe Norwood deflection on Stanley Pringle’s incoming pass paved the way for the OT with a score tied at 76 at the end of settlement

James Yap and Javee Mocon also posted a double-digit score with 13 and 12 points, respectively for the Painters, improved to 4-1

Scottie Thompson kept Ginebra in the game in the fourth quarter and finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds and five assists

Stanley Pringle had 20 points, seven rebounds and six assists, but it wasn’t enough as the Gin Kings suffered their second straight loss and fell to 4-2
