Greg Slaughter and LA Tenorio were pleased with Barangay Ginebra’s bounce back performance in Game 4 of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals that saw Justin Brownlee getting plenty of help from the locals who for most part have been non-existent.

Slaughter produced 19 points, eight rebounds and three blocks, playing a major role in Ginebra’s 17-0 start that led to a 130-100 victory over San Miguel that tied the best-of-seven Finals at 2-2 Friday night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Tenorio also had a big part in that opening salvo. He finished with 17 points and six assists after disappearing acts in the Kings losses in Game 2 (134-109) and Game 3 (132-94).

“It’s huge,” Slaughter said. “We moved the ball around more, got a lot more people involved and the result was a win.”

“We cannot be Justin-reliant, di dapat kami magrely kay Justin sa offense,” Tenorio said. “I mean, he’s been great the whole series but we cannot rely on that. Good thing everyone came out contributing.”
