    Colina, Ballesteros key late run to lift Jumbo Plastic over Cagayan Valley

    Apr 22, 2014

    JAN Colina and Jason Ballesteros scored key baskets in a late fourth quarter run to help Jumbo Plastic Linoleum beat Cagayan Valley, 70-64, on Tuesday and climb to joint second place in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup at the JCSGO gym in Quezon City.

    Colina and Ballesteros combined for only 12 points in the game but sparked an 8-0 finish for the Giants to steal the victory from the Rising Suns.

    A three-pointer by Colina at the 1:08-mark put the Giants ahead 65-64, and Ballesteros made his only field goal in the game 40 seconds later for a three-point Jumbo lead.

    Jumbo Plastic is now tied with Cebuana Lhuillier with a 4-1 win-loss card, behind undefeated NLEX (6-0).

    The late run capped off a tight contest that saw both teams in a deadlock, 50-50, at the end of the third. Kenneth Ighalo scored on a lay-up with 2:20 left in the game for Cagayan Valley’s last lead at 64-62.

    Jeff Viernes scored 14 points, while Jerick Canada and Elliot Tan added 13 for the Giants.

    The Rising Suns (2-4) fell to their second straight defeat.

    The scores:

    Jumbo Plastic Linoleum (70) – Viernes 14, Canada 13, Tan 13, Colina 9, Parala 7, Villamor 4, Ballesteros 3, Petilos 3, Custodio 2, Magat 2, Dehesa 0.

    Quarterscores: 10-9; 28-32; 50-50; 70-64.
