Fastbreak: Never-say-die Ginebra makes semis

2013 PBA Commissioner's Cup Quarterfinals

Bgy. Ginebra San Miguel Kings (81) - (79) Rain or Shine Elasto Painters

The Best: Vernon Macklin was the unquestionable main driving force in Ginebra's big win over the Elasto-Painters. V-Mack unloaded 24 points on 11-of-19 FG shooting along with 16 rebounds and 6 assists. He also made the big plays down the stretch, including a huge block on Jeff Chan and the marginal free throws, to prop the Kings up in the semifinals.

The Worst: Once again, Bruno Sundov was rattled by foul trouble, and, once again, his production took a big hit. The Croatian big man finished with just 12 points and 6 boards in 26 minutes of play as his Painters were booted despite having the twice-to-beat edge.

Fab Forwards: They don't always pop like they did in this game, but when they do, it's in the quarterfinals. Chris Ellis and Kerby Raymundo haven't exactly been stellar for Ginebra, but they were surely sublime here. They combined for 26 points, 21 rebounds, and 5 assists to help tow Alfrancis Chua's team to the next round. -
