Durham feeling good after big win against Ginebra
Almost a year after "The Shot", Durham played phenomenal against Ginebra, getting his usual Best Import numbers of 30 points and 24 rebounds.

Allen Durham has admitted that the haunting image of Justine Brownlee shooting and making a championship-winning triple on his face will probably live in him forever.

However, as the Meralco Bolts took the Finals rematch against Ginebra in convincing fashion Sunday to start the 2017 Governors' Cup, Durham can feel good for now.

Well, feel good until the Meralco's next game comes along because winning the championship rematch is means nothing in the grand scheme of things.

Or at least until the Bolts actually win the title.

"It feels good to beat one of the better teams in the league," Durham said after leading Meralco to a 93-78 win over Ginebra Sunday.

"But with that being said, it's just the second game of the conference so we got to stay humble, keep working hard, and you know, get ready on Saturday [for the next game]," he added.

Almost a year after "The Shot", Durham played phenomenal against Ginebra, getting his usual Best Import numbers of 30 points and 24 rebounds.

But Durham seems like he added another facet of his game, dishing out nine dimes as well, barely missing out on a triple-double.

He says that's just proof that his teammates came ready to play as well and have shown growth over the past year since losing their first shot at a PBA title.

"I got great teammates and they put a lot of work in the offseason. They make the shots and when they make the shots, they make my job a lot easier," Durham said.

"I see these guys in practice and how much hard work they put in. I have no problem passing it to them," he added.
