Last season, this series came very close to a rubber match before Justin Brownlee hit a three-pointer at the buzzer that ended Ginebra’s eight-year wait for a championship.Meralco would surely like to have the chance to come that close again and keep alive the franchise’s quest for a breakthrough championship.“It’s do-or-die for us and we just have to play our best game to stay alive,” said Meralco’s Norman Black in laying down what has to be done as the Bolts try to salvage this one.Allen Durham is still the key for Meralco, and the reigning two-time Best Import will see the unfinished business from last year unresolved if he can’t carry his team through this.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img
