SCOTTIE Thompson was back in fan mode in Game Four, gladly taking the backseat as his boyhood idols, Mark Caguioa and Jayjay Helterbrand, turned back the clock and sparked a vintage fourth-quarter Ginebra comeback against Meralco.

In a ‘Flashback Friday’ moment for one of the most popular backcourt pairs in league history, Helterbrand and Caguioa came off the bench and brought Ginebra back to life after the team not only lost an 11-point lead but also found itself trailing by 16 with one quarter to go.

The PBA Governor’s Cup Finals Game 4 is the stuff of legends.

IF (putting emphasis on the IF), Ginebra wins the championship, we will always go back to the 4th qtr of Game 4, where Helterbrand made 3 three-pointers and helped the Gin Kings complete their comeback against the Meralco Bolts.
