Allen
They may have bowed to Ginebra again in a seven-game PBA Governors' Cup finals battle, but Bolts import Allen Durham kept his head held high.

Meralco put up a gallant stand late in the game but fell short of pulling off a comeback from a 20-point deficit as Ginebra held on to a 101-96 win in Game 7.

"We fought good, we lost to a good team, we don’t have (anything) to be ashamed or anything like that. We got to keep working," said Durham.

Narvy
The embattled PBA Commissioner Chito Narvasa said he is hanging on to his post until a majority group of seven teams can explain the grounds of their loss of confidence.

While he still enjoys the support San Miguel Corp. teams, GlobalPort, and KIA, Narvasa said he is willing to step down and respect the decision of Alaska, Blackwater, Phoenix, Rain or Shine and the three MVP-owned teams not to extend his tenure if they have the grounds to do so. What he failed to mention though is that those who oppose him do not have the obligation to do so under league rules.

At last, the most controversial and considered the worst Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Commissioner is out of the league.

Seven governors convened in a special board meeting today 92 November 2017) and filed a resolution to "no longer support and endorse the renewal" of Narvasa.

Bolts 98, Ginebra 91

Game 6
Before a new record crowd of 53,642, the Meralco Bolts played their hearts out and gutted it out, pulling off a coast-to-coast 98-91 win over the Barangay Ginebra Kings to force a deciding Game Seven in the PBA Governors Cup title playoff last 25 October at the Philippine Arena here.

Coach Norman Black rotated practically just seven men who waged a gallant fight to foil the Gin Kings' first crack at a Governors Cup title repeat.
