World News – UA – Belga is booming as Rain or Shine circles Ginebra in OT


Beau Belga won for Rain or Shine as he escaped Barangay Ginebra, 85-82, in PBA Philippine Cup overtime at the University of Angeles Foundation in Pampanga on Tuesday October 27

Belga lost a 20-point, 10-rebound double-double in addition to 4 assists, but it was his crucial baskets in the extra period that propelled the Elasto Painters to their fourth victory in the bubble

“We just wanted to bounce back from a loss in our last game against Alaska,” Belga said in Filipino “I just wanted to bounce back personally I took it as a challenge”

« Puso ko na lang ang nagpapatakbo sa akin Yung na manalo’s will in today’s match Good thing na nakuha namin yung panalo », Belga added

(The only thing that got me running was my heart My will to win in today’s game Luckily we were able to come out with the win)

With Rain or Shine under 3, 73-76, with 6 seconds left in regulation, Rey Nambatac – who struggled throughout the game – hit a booming triple-pointer who sent the game in overtime, 76-76

Still tied at 78 points in the extra period, Belga took over and started a personal 5-0 run to give the Elasto Painters the advantage, 83-78 with 1:29 to play

Ginebra star Stanley Pringle responded with a layup to narrow the lead to one possession, 83-80

However, Jewel Ponferada sank a layup at the other end with 5 seconds left as the Elasto Painters moved away from the Gin Kings for good
