PBA: Angry Calvin on headlock: Try ko rin
"Try ko rin. Para malaman kung gaano ka-F2 o ka-F1 yun. Yun lang, okay na. Try ko," a fuming Abueva said after the game.

Calvin Abueva was really not in the mood to talk about the brawl that ensued between Phoenix and San Miguel with 4:11 left in the already decided game at the Mall of Asia Arena. 

San Miguel was already up comfortably, 105-88, when Kevin Murphy suddenly put a headlock over the enigmatic forward then all hell broke loose on the baseline.

Then, the coaching staff of Phoenix and San Miguel butted heads at halfcourt and exchanged unpleasantries.

A handful of technical fouls were issued and things returned to normal.

For the former Alaska Ace, he questioned the referee's decision-making after the hostile acts and implied that there was a double-standard in the call.

"Try ko rin. Para malaman kung gaano ka-F2 o ka-F1 yun. Yun lang, okay na. Try ko," a fuming Abueva said after the game.

Murphy was slapped with a Flagrant Foul Penalty 1 for his actions, meaning he was not ejected and stayed on the bench for at least three minutes of game time.

He did not return as the Beermen came away with their third win of the Governors' Cup.
