Petron wins Governor’s Cup crown,
 spoils Talk N Text grand slam bid

Arwind Santos played the hero in the last minutes of the game as Petron Blaze beat Talk ‘n Text, 85-73, in Game 7 to capture the PBA Governor’s Cup crown and spoil TNT’s grand slam bid at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum last night.

Leading by 10 points at 74-64 with four minutes left in the game, Petron nearly lost its grasp on the momentum as Talk ‘n Text battled its way up to the last two minutes, trying to turn things around to keep its grand slam campaign alive.

But Santos and Dennis Miranda kept pace with Jimmy Alapag and Kelly Williams as Petron worked the time and took care of every ball possession while protecting the slim margin that carried them through in the final seconds.
