The Enforcer, even without injured Nino Canaleta, threatened to live up to their reputation as they stayed within striking distance until White was called for a flagrant foul due to landing-spot violation on Sol Mercado halfway through the payoff period.
The Gin Kings took advantage of the situation as they gained more separation, but still found the Enforcer, despite fielding a unlikely unit composed of unheralded players Raymond Aguilar, AJ Mandani, and Bong Galanza, who went with star guard LA Revilla and White, a tough nut to crack before eventually prevailing.
White tallied a team-leading 23 points, but could’ve contributed more had he played three more minutes that were deducted after picking up the crucial flagrant call.
