PBA: Lalaban tayo hanggang sa huli -- Aces coach Compton

ANTIPOLO -- Down 0-2 in a best-of-five semifinals series against the best and most star-studded team in the league, Alaska could’ve waived the white flag. But the Aces aren’t going down without a fight. Faced against overwhelming odds, Alaska stood its ground and made giant San Miguel Beer know that if it wants to advance into the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals the Beermen must go through them first. Even with their import Diamon Simpson playing hurt, the Aces blew out San Miguel, 125-104, to deny the Beermen a series sweep and live to fight another day Friday at the Ynares Sports Center here. “I thought everybody contributed at a time where, obviously, we’re still down, at a time we’re very down,” said Alaska coach Alex Compton, whose bench produced 71 points. “To tell you what guys, I love my guys. You heard me say it before I love my guys they don’t give up.” “We’re down 2-0 against the best team in the league, there’s every possibility to give up but they didn’t,” he added. The Aces dropped the series’ first two games including a painful Game 2 loss where Alaska squandered a 16-point lead. Ahead by nine points in at the half in Game 3, Alaska this time kept its hold of the lead and even extended it to 17 heading into the payoff period for a comfortable cushion. “Yun ang hiningi ko sa kanila, ‘lalaban tayo hanggang sa huli’. Lumaban sila,” said Compton. “You know we have to play great to beat San Miguel, I thought we played great tonight.” The mentor also praised his wards for stepping up as Simpson played with a sprained ankle he sustained in Game 2.     “I’m really proud of the guys when I had to sub him out when he looked like he was really hurt in the second quarter,” Compton said. “They were able to maintain and even at point extend our lead a little bit.” Vic Manuel delivered 24 points while Simpson still managed to score 21 markers and grab 13 boards. JV Casio also contributed with 15 markers while Simon Enciso flirted with a double-double with 10 points and eight assists in a time Alaska need all the help it could get. “It just feels like it was one of our days. Alam naman naming na doon sa kabila hindi biro ang bigat ng kalaban but we got one and we needed to get one,” said Compton. Now Alaska has a chance to get back in the series and take an equalizer on Sunday in Game 4.         ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles      .....»»

PBA: We can t get too excited -- Simpson on Aces win

Alaska finally woke up from a slump in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup best-of-five semifinals series Friday with a rout of defending champion San Miguel Beer. With their bench producing 71 points led by Vic Manuel and import Diamon Simpson providing his usual numbers despite playing with a sprained ankle, the Aces crushed the Beermen, 125-104, at the Ynares Sports Center here.     But there’s still much work to be done for Alaska to end a two-year tournament championship stint drought. The Aces still trail SMB, 1-2, in the series. “That was a good win but we can't get too excited,” said Simpson, who played through pain to register 21 points and 13 rebounds. Manuel led Alaska’s bench scoring with 24 points, Simon Enciso came off the bench to add 10 points and eight assists while Nonoy Baclao and Chris Exciminiano had nine markers each to highlight the Aces total team effort.  “I thought the whole team played well, not just the bench, the starters, I think everybody contributed which helped us win,” Simpson said. “So, congratulations to our team. We just gotta keep going.” The win gave Alaska the much-needed morale boost for an underdog playing against a deep and talented SMB squad, which came into the game looking for a sweep and a record 40th Finals appearance. But the Aces spoiled the Beermen’s party.  “I think they kinda look at it that way at first. But we just persevered, and keep going, and have faith that we can compete with them, and not worried about wins or losses but attitude and effort,” said Simpson. Game 4 is on Sunday at the Big Dome. And Alaska will be ready to force a decider and ultimately get a shot at its 31st PBA Finals stint. “We gotta come back and play them again Sunday and try to play with our heart again and see if that's enough,” Simpson said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»
