I told the players that you need to exert all your effort and match their intensity and we can win.”Larry Fonacier scored 15 points and Jason Castro 13 for the Texters, who never got going the way they did in Game 3 Sunday night and dropped into a hole they never got to climb out of.Austria, though, refuses to buy suggestions that his team is now back playing the favorite, a tag the Beermen were given after coming into the series with an 11-game winning streak dating back to the elimination round.“We don’t look at it that way,” Austria said when asked if San Miguel will be the favorite in Game 5. “I just know that this is a game of adjustments. They will plot things against you for the next game, try to anticipate your adjustments.”ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

We have to play our game, like we did today.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?
