    IT appeared Barangay Ginebra’s win the last time took its toll on Scottie Thompson.

    The third year guard played out of synch in the Kings’ 102-81 blowout loss to the San Miguel Beermen on Thursday night in Game Four of the PBA Philippine Cup semifinals.

    It turned out he was nursing a slight fever and was dehydrated shortly after Ginebra scored a breakthrough 95-87 win in Game Three on Tuesday.

    “Sabi niya dehydrated siya after the last game kaya iba yung laro niya kanina,” said backcourt mate LA Tenorio.

    “Yes, he was feeling weak, but I’m not sure if he’s sick. But yes, he’s weak,” deputy coach Richard del Rosario added. 

    Thompson left the Mall of Asia Arena shortly after the loss that put Ginebra in a precarious 3-1 series deficit against the three-time defending champion.

    He only finished with a single point and was 0-for-4 from the field.

      Thompson had four assists, three turnovers, and surprisingly, failed to snare a single rebound after averaging in double figures in that department for the entire eliminations.

      In the Game Three win, the former NCAA MVP from University of Perpetual Help finished with an all-around effort of nine points, seven rebounds, and six assists.

      Thompson had another day to rest and recover  prior to Saturday’s Game Five at the Astrodome in what figures out to be a do-or-die battle for the never-say die team.
