SIMON Enciso atoned for his miscues in Game Two by scoring 12 points on Sunday in the PBA Governors’ Cup finals.
Enciso also hit four triples in Game Three as Alaska finally secured a victory in the best-of-seven championship series.
The Alaska guard bounced back after committing a crucial error in Game Two when he threw an errant inbound pass that was stolen by Magnolia import Romeo Travis. Enciso also missed a late lay-up that could have tied the game.
Enciso said he has quickly moved on from Game Two as he treated Game Three as a usual match.
“Just try to come into it like every other game,” Enciso said. “I put in the work. My confidence comes from the work I put in. I just keep on plugging and plugging and see the result tonight and keep going.”
Enciso actually had a decent Game Two when he had six points and seven assists although he committed four turnovers, one of which was a crucial one in the endgame, and shot only 33 percent.
Game Three saw Alaska shoot 49 percent from the field, a far cry from the 37 percent in Game Two, as the Aces picked up a 100-71 win over Magnolia on Sunday.
“We just needed to hit our shots and play better defense and that’s what we came out and did,” said Enciso.
Following Sunday’s win, the Aces are now heading to Game Four on Wednesday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum where they are looking to tie the series.
“I’m determined when it comes to any game. As long as I’m going out with my teammates, my brothers. We are really determined to win,” said Enciso.
