Good pickup for Powerade. Belasco proved that he still got the stuff to play in the PBA from his ABL experience. Add to the fact that he's 6'7, capable of shooting well from the outside, and an above average defender. Since Powerade needs as much depth as possible, Belasco's reunion with the franchise should augur well for the Tigers in their bid to snatch another Finals stint in the Governor's Cup.
Streaking Powerade signs Nic Belasco as frontline insurance
The Powerade Tigers, the hottest team in the Governors’ Cup, have bolstered their frontline by signing veteran forward Nic Belasco.
The 38-year-old is making his PBA comeback after spending most of the season with the Westports Malaysia Dragons in the ASEAN Basketball League.
Powerade coach Bo Perasol confirmed this latest development to InterAKTV.
“We picked him up from the ABL for insurance,” said Perasol, whose team is on a four-game winning streak and is close to making it to the semifinal round for the second time this season.
Perasol said Belasco, a 14-year PBA vetean, has yet to be included in the 14-man roster.
“He understands his situation and we will include him if necessary. Right now, the team is doing well,” said Perasol.
Belasco was the second overall pick of Sunkist in 1997 and helped the San Miguel Beermen and the Alaska Aces to titles.
He also had stints with Welcoat, Coca-Cola, Talk ‘N Text, and Sta. Lucia, his last PBA team.

Ginebra, Powerade shoot for key wins versus Alaska, Air 21

Barangay Ginebra and Powerade gun for an important win against separate foes in the PBA Governors’ Cup Friday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.
The Kings try to get back in the hunt for a spot in the semis as they seek a win against eliminated Alaska at 5:15 p.m.
The Tigers shoot for a victory that will formalize their entry in the next round in their 7:30 p.m. meeting with Air 21.
Ginebra is at the middle of the standings with a 3-3 slate and is coming off a heart-breaking 86-83 loss to Powerade last time out.
Kings coach Siot Tanquingcen said the game is very important for the team but his concern is the players might not feel the urgency because their opponent is already out of the running.
“We can’t take any team for granted. Alaska has a proud tradition so whatever the circumstance is we have to come out and play hard and earn it,” said Tanquingcen.
The Aces of coach Luigi Trillo were the first to see the exit door in the season-ending conference after tallying a 1-6 slate.
In the night cap, Powerade tries to extend its winning streak to five games against the Express.
The Tigers are on a roll behind the solid performances of Omar Sneed and Gary David but coach Bo Perasol also cautions his wards not to relax against the 1-5 Express.
“We fully understand what is at stake in our game tomorrow (today),” said Perasol. “However, we cannot burden ourselves with anything that will hinder us from playing hard for the whole 48 minutes.”
Air 21’s chances of entering the next phase got dimmed following its 106-77 defeat to Meralco last Wednesday.
Will Antonio, tas Nic Belasco. They almost had Kenneth Duremdes playing again kung nakabalik lang sa kundisyon.

powerade needs to win their last game because gary david's mvp hopes could be in jeopardy. hard to justify if you have two conferences that you were eliminated early even if you played like an import in all of it.
He was with the team na rin naman noong 2007 or 2008 ata nung Coke pa sila together with Asi.
pa isa lang powerade
BYE BYE POWERADE
NICE GAME Powerade
poor powerade. when it seems that they got the right import and the team connected with some good four straight wins (alaska, tnt, rainorshine, ginebra), then goes their end-conference blowoff games--3 straight losses. that game against air21 will serve as a lesson. just like their fate last conference, the assured playoff spot was so near yet they can't seem to grab the luck. pag natalo meralco sa barako, ano mangyayari (quotient system or more games?), since three teams would be tied for 4-5.
The Bolts simply need to beat the Energy to complete the semis cast and shut the playoffs door on the latter and the Tigers. In this case, the semis will begin on Wednesday.
If Barako Bull wins over Meralco, a double playoff to decide the sixth and last semifinals will ensue.
In this scenario, the team with the highest PBA quotient gets a bye and the two others knock each other out on Tuesday. The winner faces the team with the best PBA quotient the following day and the semis start Friday in Antipolo.
If the Energy win against the Bolts Sunday, the scores will count in the computation for their PBA quotients. The Energy actually need to win by at least five points to earn a bye. Otherwise, it's the Bolts who will gain the privilege and leave Powerade and Barako Bull fight it out in the first knockout game.
nabuhay pa ang patay.lol
Twice-to-beat-disadvantage. Eto na ang last chance ni Gary for a possible MVP.
Nagkaroon pa ng pag-asa ang Powerade!
Go, Tigers! Go home! Kelangan ng SEABA team si David.
May chance pa ang Powerade....
buhay pa ang powerade.
Nag-relax kasi sila masyado with Air 21. Ang pagkatalo nila doon is really a MORALE killer. Binilang na agad ang WIN, Air 21 had other plans.
Buti nabigyan pa sila ng second chance with a playoff. Iyon nga lang dadaan ulit sila sa butas ng karayom.
Teka , this sounds familiar. Baka mas makabuti pa ito for POW para maibalik ang kumpiyansa nila.
