TNT is just too strong, too smart, too good for Rain or Shine. It would've been a closer series had Alaska or San Mig Coffee advanced to the final.
TNT ruined the outside game of Jeff Chan and the athleticism of Gabe Norwood. TNT's big men also tenderized the beefy frontline of Beau Belga and JR Quinahan.
With TNT's performance earlier, it was already like watching the Philippine national team. Defense indeed wins championships.
