Ranidel De Ocampo continues to impress by leading the TNT Phone Pals to a pivotal Game 3 victory over the Bgy. Ginebra Gin Kings.

Looks like TNT can flip the switch at any moment, but Game 4 promises to be another nip-tuck affair as the series heads back to Manila, where Ginebra's horde of fans awaits. If TNT can continue their balanced offensive and consistently force TOs from their full-court press though, they can bury the Kings in a deeper hole. Ginebra can't simply rely on spurts that are few and far between to beat the Pals. They've got to dominate early on and establish Nate Brumfield's slashing/pounding game.

PS Where has your play gone Ronald Tubid?
