The fans and the players went crazy after the referees didn't call a what could be a travelling violation on Sol Mercado.

The Meralco Bolts were trying to make a comeback and Ginebra were leading 87-81 when Sol Mercado got away with a travelling violation that resulted on a Scottie Thompson's three pointer later on and push the lead up to 9 points, 90-81 with 44 seconds left in the game.

"We have nothing to apologize for" said Cone on non-call on Sol Mercado's travelling violation.

"I bet so many bad calls, the last two conferences we were knocked out in what we consider bad calls. We have nothing to apologize for" said by the Ginebra mentor

Ginebra were knocked out by GlobalPort in the last Philippine Cup on a controversial win with multiple violation on the final possession of the Batang Pier that were not called by the referees.

"It's part of the game, it happens" added by the 18 time champion coach.

Tim Cone also mentioned the non-call on Allen Durham's push in the rebounding battle against Justin Brownlee.

"My caught there is a player earlier where, Durham got caught on a push on, an obvious push on Justin right in the back, Justin had the ball and put it back in and he push him right out of play, and I call a timeout" cited by Cone.

"That's part of the game, anybody could complain about all they want" added by the american mentor.
