    ALLEN Durham was left to rue Meralco's sloppy start in the 81-92 loss to Ginebra in Game Five that left the Bolts fighting for surival in the PBA Governors' Cup finals on Sunday night.

    Meralco trailed 33-19 after the opening quarter, pulled to within five in the endgame, but fell in the end as the Gin Kings moved a win away from clinching their first title since 2008 with a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven finale.

    "We got to have better starts than how we did tonight," said Durham.

    "They did some different things defensively and they did where they got the ball out of my hands. We got to look at the film and see how I can get more touches when they put the defense on me," he said. 

    "I had some good shots, I just missed them. I just have to make those. You cant blame them."

    But the hulking import said he believed that if there is any team that can come back from 2-3 down, it should be the Bolts who he said have overcome adversity all conference long.

    "This season has been nothing but adversity for us," said the Best Import awardee. "We got a type of team that can bounce back and we can win these next two games."
