"That's the plan." --- Allen Durham on Meralco shooting for a sweep of Star in the Governors' Cup semifinals.
The game plan for Meralco is rather simple heading into Game 3 of the Governor's Cup semifinals: go for the sweep.
Now up 2-0 in the best-of-5, the Bolts are not trying to give the Hotshots any more shots at life.
"That's the plan, we'll see," import Allen Durham said on the possible sweep.
Despite coming off two impressive wins, they know Star is more than capable of staging a miracle.
"We can't et too excited because we're sure Star is going to come back and they're fighting for their season," Durham said.
"We got to make sure we handle our business on Thursday [for Game 3]," he added.
Handling your business is easier said than done but the Bolts have established a way to win that doesn' involve coming back from huge deficits.
The key is to start strong and be consistent on the offensive side of the ball.
"In Game 1, we didn't shoot well, and then we shot the ball pretty well [in Game 2[. That's the type of basketball we're capable of playing," Durham said.
