Fajardo looks to move on from foul-plagued Game 4

By Ivan Saldajeno

QUEZON CITY--In a rare moment, San Miguel center Junemar Fajardo sat out the dying moments of Game 4 of the PBA Commissioner's Cup Finals against TNT on Wednesday night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum due to fouls.

The 6-foot-10 slotman, who got two quick fouls in the first quarter, fouled out with 2:02 left while trying to stop a Joshua Smith layup.

"Part ng game yun. Medyo [frustrated ako]," said the reigning MVP after the game.

It turned out to be costly as the KaTropa held on against the Beermen to tie the championship series at 2-all.


However, Fajardo wants to quickly get past the sluggish game.

"Kailangang mag-move on. Tapos na yun. Kailangang matuto kami doon and bounce back," he continued.

Meanwhile, Fajardo said he was impressed by Smith's performance that Fajardo even thought the pain in his fellow 6-foot-10 behemoth's foot is already gone.

"Parang hindi naman talaga siya injured eh," Fajardo further told reporters.

For Game 5 on Friday night, he vowed, "Kailangan naming sundin ang game plan."
