I thought we really gutted it out in the end especially since my import was in foul trouble majority of the game,” said Meralco head coach Norman Black.“I have to give a lot of credit to the locals particularly Baser Amer, who I felt played one of the best games of his career. Special mention also goes out to Kelly Nabong, who hit his foul shots when the game was on the line,” Black added.
