Durham after big Game 3: We just extended the series

"I mean, we won a game tonight but we havenít really done anything significant." --- Meralco import Allen Durham.
For the first time in six tries, Meralco won a Finals game against Brgy. Ginebra.
That's nice and all, but the Bolts still lost the 2016 Governors' Cup and they still trail the 2017 Finals, 1-2.
Which is why despite an emphatic Game 3 answer against the Gin Kings, Meralco is well aware that that's all they did. Provide an answer to the rampaging defending champions and make this whole thing an actual series.
"I mean, we won a game tonight but we haven’t really done anything significant," import Allen Durham said of the Bolts' 94-81 win Wednesday.
For the third straight game in these Finals, the back-to-back Governors' Cup Best Import led the way for Meralco, firing 38 poins and 20 rebounds.
"We just extended the game a little bit, extended the series," he added.
Previously down 0-2 to the barangay, the key game is obviously Game 4 on Friday.
That matchup is going to be crucial for both teams and the result will probably dictate how the series goes. Durham and the Bolts know that.
"Now we get to Game 4, we win that and we have a series. And the whole thing changes. So we gotta focus on Game 4," Durham said.
