    JEFF Chan is glad to reach the 5,000-point mark and is confident he can continue contributing to Ginebra, although he stressed that it is defense that the Kings are focusing on in the semifinal showdown with Magnolia in the PBA Governors Cup.

    The 35-year-old gunner says it is just a bonus becoming the 91st player in the league to reach the mark, noting that the main goal is to help the Kings win their third straight Governors’ Cup title, and his first in the conference in a Ginebra uniform.

    “Masaya pero ang most important, nanalo kami at nag-advance sa semifinals. Bonus na lang,” said Chan, who passed 5,000 points as he scored 12 in the Kings’ 111-75 win over the Road Warriors that got them a semifinal berth.

    “I guess to be one of the iilang player, at least nandoon tayo. Kahit papaano malaking accomplishment,” he said.

    Chan noted that it won’t be the offense or his three-point shooting that will be the key to victory if the Kings are to win against the Hotshots.

    “Expect namin na maglalaro sila ng all out. Do-or-die for them. Kami naman, do-or-die din ‘yung approach namin,” Chan said.

      “Kailangan namin ma-stop ‘yung mga guards nila. Actually, mas magfo-focus kami sa defense at malimit namin sila. High scoring team sila. Ma-limit namin sila, I think we will be okay,” said Chan.
