GILAS CUP SEASON 5 (5’10) – The bench was definitely a factor in this game, with Bull Ballin’s line up still not intact for various reasons. They went to the game with a depleted line up, with that in mind the Gems took advantage of their depth and went to pressure BBB’s backcourt. Halftime was 43 -35 in favour of Cebu Gems.
In the 3rd quarter, the Gems’ backcourt of Nino Densing and Andrew Teves caught fire from outside. Densing’s back to back triples was the catalyst for his team’s 32-23 run going into the fourth. Densing’s 22 pts and Teves’ 18 proved to be too much for BBB.
Another big night form old reliable Jonas Gaw (24 pts) and AJ Firmacion (16 pts) along with Bong Cayetano’s 15 pts were just not enough for BBB. Cebu Gems 86 – Bull Ballin Brothers 71.
