#PBA2015 Govs Cup Roundup: May 24, 2015

The 2015 PBA Governors’ Cup saw some heated action tonight as the Barako Bull Energy notched their fourth win in as many games even as San Miguel stretched its winning run to three at the expense of the Star Hotshots.




Game recap (adapted from Interkasyon):

BARAKO BULL ENERGY over MERALCO BOLTS, 105-99
Box scores.
The Barako Bull Energy continued to remain the last undefeated team left standing in the PBA Governors’ Cup after finding a way to get past a tough Meralco side, 105-99, on Sunday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum. Joseph Yeo exploded for 28 points, including five three-pointers, and a team-high six assists despite coming off the bench while import Liam McMorrow shrugged off some foul trouble to finish with 19 points and 23 rebounds. RR Garcia scored 14 points, while Justin Chua and Jake Pascual added 12 apiece. Barako Bull improved to a league-best 4-0 record to open the conference while dropping Meralco, which got 32 points from import Andre Emmett, to 2-3. JC Intal and Dylan Ababou, who each averaged double-figure scoring in the team’s first three games, combined for just seven in this one, but it didn’t matter too much with several others picking up the slack. Prolific scorer Andre Emmett led the Bolts with 32 points, while Cliff Hodge backstopped him with 17 markers.

Line of the Game: Liam McMorrow (BAR) - 19pts, 23rebs, 6/7 FGs.
