GABBY Espinas said San Miguel Beer is making the necessary adjustments to get back to its winning ways.

The former NCAA Rookie-MVP was just a second away from becoming the unlikely hero for San Miguel in Game Two of the Philippine Cup finals when he drained a three pointer to push his squad ahead by one, 109-108, with 23 seconds left in regulation. 

Sadly for him, it just wasn't meant to be as Ginebra was able to take the game into overtime before eking out a 124-118 win to level the best of seven PBA Philippine Cup Finals at one apiece.

"Sayang eh. (Pero) alangan namang magmukmok kami at wag na kumilos," Espinas said. 

"Adjust lang siguro sa kung ano lang makikita naming negative sa viewing. Dalawang key player namin ang nawala. Sayang eh, kasi nandoon naman kami," he added. 

Game Three is on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum.

Espinas has averaged 14.5 points in the past two games, shooting well over 50 percent to lead San Miguel's second unit.

"Paglabas nila, dapat talaga magandang energy ang ipakita ko. Lalo na wala si June Mar. Kailangan lang mag-step up. Yun lang ang mindset ko," Espinas continued. 

"Ganun talaga ang kailangan kasi finals ito. Di ka pwede mangayaw. Laban lang ng laban kahit anong mangyari," he added.
