    SIMON Enciso got some good-natured ribbing from coach Tim Cone in the endgame of Barangay Ginebra's 75-72 win over San Miguel in the PBA Philippine Cup.

    Enciso smiled when asked about it, but said he's just doing his job especially with the San Miguel backcourt lacking in help in the absence of injured guards Chris Ross and Terrence Romeo.

    "It's been a long time doing it man," said Enciso who topscored for 18 points in the Beermen's first loss for the season.

    Enciso struggled with his shots early on, but when he finally found his rythm, San Miguel was able to close the gap after trailing by as many as eight entering the final quarter.

    "I know its just a matter of time before my shots fall in," said Enciso.
