Cone said that Scottie deserved it as he never had a downtime and he has incredible energy. Thompson is also one of the main guns, along with Justin Brownlee, who made 31 points and 19 rebounds. The Kings also drew power from Greg Slaughter and LA Tenorio, who made a three-point shot.

As per the report, nobody believed that the Kings can reach the finals and face the San Miguel Beermen in six games. Cone, too, was surprised that they were down 1-5, yet they were able to match up with the Beermen and win the series.
