FINALS: Powerade Tigers 1 - 3 Talk N Text Tropang Texters
B-Meg Llamados is now gaining momentum to prove to the world why they are considered as one of the high-caliber teams of the PBA. The first half of the season was sort of a transition period for the team – as they thrive hard on the infamous triangle offense of their new acquired coach, Tim Cone. The abysmal team standing of the Llamados earlier this season is very disappointing – considering they are the favored team to win the championship this year. (Just look at their lineup plus their grand slam coach.)

The Llamados has finally adjusted with their game system. With a 4-game winning streak, and improving their record to 6-4 win-loss card, (sharing the spot with Meralco on the team standings as having an identical record) the team is now looking forward to extend their winning streak to 5 as they will be up against Rain or Shine (7-3) this Friday. This game is going to be a crucial one – if B-Meg pulls through, they will tie with Rain or Shine at 7-4 record. The goal is to get into the Top 6 and they’re getting there.

With the triangle offense being fully understood by the players and miraculously working, who knows – this will be the start of the B-Meg dynasty on the league. Cone was quoted saying that star shooting guard James Yap will flourish in the triangle, and Yap did. “Big Game James” was named as the Accel Player of the Week from November 7 to 13 as he provided the star power for his team. Cone was very pleased with his prized guard, “James has that unique ability to put his whole team on his back and carry them to victory. He can score and make tough shots against great defense and that is demoralizing for the opposing team. I know because I use to be against him, and I’m just glad I’m on his side now.”

The shape of the triangle has proven to be effective on the Llamados’ game play. Cone added, “It’s been a slow climb but we’re happy where we are.”
