Allen Durham is the latest player to get the whip from the PBA after the league slapped the Meralco import with fine of P30,000 for his post-game comments following the Bolts’ 95-84 Game 5 loss to Ginebra on Sunday.

The do-it-all reinforcement was penalized after issuing comments detrimental to the league.

Durham described the officiating in Game 5 as “really bad.”

“I don’t know if that (fine) solves anything,” Meralco team manager Paolo Trillo said.

Trillo, though, praised the Gin Kings for having a better game plan in the game, something which he pointed out should be high priority for the Bolts.

“Ginebra came out very aggressive in Game 5 and stayed away from foul trouble. We have to find a way to stay aggressive in Game 6 and not get into foul trouble,” he said.
Trillo is hoping for a better officiating, especially with the Bolts fighting for their lives in Game 6.

“All we can hope is for fair and consistent officiating on both sides in Game 6,” he said.
Game 6 is on Wednesday at the Philippine Arena.
