SF Game 2: TNT VS Meralco - Older Brother Rules?

(c) PBA Media Bureau

As expected, TNT was dominant in their game 1. Can they repeat that again in this game?



TNT basically played regularly and Meralco just failed to come up with the right tactical adjustments during the game. Meralco will be best serve if they will not allow another 50% shooting from beyond the arc. 

THE KEYS
Key Match-up: Ranidel de Ocampo VS Cliff Hodge
Key Stats: Fouls
Key Question: More post plays or more three-point attempts for the Bolts?

Prediction
Cliff Hodge was his usual self yesterday. One of the greatest trait of Cliff is the consistency of his defense, hustle and drive. Ranidel de Ocampo should try to suppress any uprising created by the energy and consistency of Cliff.

Meralco was called for 25 fouls yesterday. That was not acceptable because they only drew 13 fouls. Should the Bolts focus more  on one scoring area or will they again try to do it both ways?

I am going again with TNT here. I think, this is the game where Jayson Castro will takeover to win the game.
