TNT big men return
Erram was back on the floor of the Don Honorio Ventura State University gym after suffering a fractured cheekbone in Sunday’s Game 4, while Williams saw action in the semis for the first time following clearance from the league’s health and safety protocols.
The 39-year-old Williams regained his spot in the Tropang Giga’s starting unit, with Erram, wearing a special fitted mask to cover his injured cheekbone, coming off the bench this time.
Erram was a game-time decision, according to coach Chot Reyes.
The presence of the two big men had TnT off to a fast start for a 32-17 lead in the opening quarter as the team hit 6-of-12 from three-point range, before coasting to a 110-90 win and moving on the cusp of reaching the finals of the all-Filipino conference for the second straight season.
