MANILA, Philippines – The Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters squared up the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals series after pummeling the B-Meg Llamados, 100-85, in Game 4.
Forwards Jarred Dillinger and Larry Fonacier came out firing as the Texters bounced back from their Game 3 loss.
The Texters’ win effectively reduced the best-of-seven series into a best-of-three affair.
The game was marred by a melee, however, when Talk ‘N Text guard Pamboy Raymundo planted an elbow on B-Meg’s Josh Urbiztondo, triggering a near free-for-all.
Tension grew as B-Meg forward Joe Devance flicked the ball at Raymundo’s face, and the Talk ‘N Text player retaliated by hitting Devance on the nape.
Both players were thrown out of the contest. Mornings @ ANC, April 30, 2012.
