WALA na’y laing ugma alang sa San Mig Coffee Mixers ug Rain or Shine Elasto Painters sa ilang panag-abot og balik karong gabii alang sa deciding Game 5 sa 39th Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Governor’s Cup finals series sa Araneta Coliseum.

Kasamtangang nagtabla ang series human sa 88-79 nga kadaugan sa Elasto Painters sa Game 4 niadtong Lunes. Ningdaog sab ang Elasto Painters sa Game 2 pinaagi sa overtime, 89-87.

Ang Coffee Mixers mao ang ningdaog sa Game 1, 104-101, ug Game 3, 69-78.

“We are just really postponing the party. I hope we have the chance to cancel it on Wednesday. I hope we can sustain the energy that we have in Game Four,  that’s what we need to win,” asoy ni Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao.

“It’s really very difficult to maintain and sustain our energy. The season’s scheduling, the fatigue factor is setting in the distractions. We just have to maintain our focus. It’s a good thing on Wednesday. We have to be out there for you.

Sa tagalog may kasabihan ‘tayo matira at matibay’.”

Giangkon ni San Mig coach Tim Cone nga mas nagkabug-at ang kanila ang pressure sa paglangkat sa talagsaong Grandslam title.

“No doubt we have more pressure. We’ve realized that, and we have toplay through it.

Winning a grand slam is hard. It’s gonna be hard for us. We really felt it that there’s more pressure on us because of the Grandslam,” batbat ni Cone, kinsa maoy winningest coach pinaagi sa iyang 16 ka mga titulo nga nahipos gikan pa niadtong naa pa siya sa Alaska.

Ang Coffee Mixers nagtinguha sa ilang ika-13 nga titulo sa kinatibuk-an ug ikaupat nga sunodsunod.

Ang kadaugan karon sa Coffee Mixers makahatag og bag-ong rekord alang ni Cone isip bugtong coach nga midaog og duha ka mga Grandslam. Iyang natuboy ang Alaska Aces sa Grandslam niadtong 1996.

Upat pa lang ka mga coach ang nakatilaw og Grand Slam title sa kasaysayan sa PBA.

Gawas kang Cone, ang laing tulo mao sila si Baby Dalupan sa Crispa Redmanizers niadtong 1976, Tommy Manotoc sa Crispa sab niadtong 1983 ug Norman Black sa San Miguel Beermen niadtong 1989.

Ang Coffee Mixers nagtinguha nga mahimong ikaupat nga team nga makakuha og Grandslam.
