PETRON starting guard Alex Cabagnot and import Elijah Millsap suffered injuries in Game Six of the PBA Governors Cup Finals against San Mig, but both are not about to quit.
Not with the championship on the line.
Cabagnot told Spin.ph at halftime of Game Six that he had again hurt the plantas fascia on his foot, which had already sidelined him for two games in the early part of the best-of-seven series.
"I heard it snap. I'm scared. It pains me so much," said the shifty guard as he limped out of the court to the dugout. "But I can't leave the team just like that."
"I'll still play this through. Kakayanin ko. Just pray that it doesn't get worse," he added.
On the other hand, Millsap suffered a sprain in the second quarter when he stubbed his foot against the floor after getting fouled on a drive by San Mig's Alex Mallari.
The prolific import, who had already been advised against wearing low-cut shoes, was later seen changing from his Nike Kobe 8 System shoes to his street wear kicks, mid-top Air Jordan 3s, after the incident.
"Sabi n'ya masakit ang kaliwang paa n'ya," said a Petron staff of Millsap, who like Cabagnot started the second half but was in obvious pain.
Petron consultant Todd Purves, however, said quitting is not an option. San Mig leads the series, 3-2.
"Everything is on the line now," he said. "Everybody knows we can't quit."
