Purefoods and Air21 closed a trade deal involving Paul Artadi then figured in exciting match with the Giants crushing the Express, 130-124, Thursday at the PUP gym in Sta. Mesa.

Artadi has been dealt to the Barangay Ginebra Kings when the Giants repulsed the Express to gain leadership with a 2-0 win-loss record in Group B in the 2007 PBA Pre-Season Tournament.

The Express practically bombed out of contention for the championship as they reeled to a second straight defeat.

Air21 Board representative and team manager Lito Alvarez, however, is upbeat on their chances for the coming season with a lineup spiced up further by new acquisitions Ervin Sotto, Jek Chia, Paolo Hubalde and Chris Baluyot.

The team reacquired Sotto from Coca-Cola, recruited Baluyot from the free agent pool and acquired Chia and Hubalde in a three-way trade deal with Purefoods and Ginebra. Purefoods gained a future draft pick from Air21 in exchange for Artadi.

The Giants hardly missed the services of Artadi, drawing tremendous boost from new backcourt recruits Chico Lanete and Ardy Larong.

Lanete and Larong combined for 32 points although old Purefoods mainstays James Yap, Kerby Raymundo and Roger Yap delivered the biggest numbers as they whipped Air21 for a second straight win following their conquest of Barangay Ginebra in the opener last Saturday in Cavite.

The Giants opened a double-digit lead right in the first period and held off repeated rallies by the Express who banked heavily on another 30-point performance from Arwind Santos.

The Express refused to give up the fight easily but the Giants hang tough to the finish with James Yap pouring in 29 points and Raymundo adding 21.

The Giants played serious basketball with coach Ryan Gregorio even called a technical foul in the fourth quarter for continuous complaining.

The Express threatened the last time at 114-118 before Yap and Raymundo fueled a decisive run that eventually bailed Purefoods out of trouble. (NC)

Purefoods 130 – Yap J. 29, Raymundo 21, Lanete 20, Yap R. 20, Larong 12, Sanz 8, Pingris 7, Adducul 7, Salvador 4, Evangelista 2.

Accidentally Inlove by: Counting Crows

Accidentally Inlove by: counting crows

So she said what's the problem baby
What's the problem I don't know
Well maybe I'm in love (love)
Think about it every time
I think about it
Can't stop thinking 'bout it
How much longer will it take to cure this
Just to cure it cause I can't ignore it if it's love (love)
Makes me wanna turn around and face me
but I don't know nothing 'bout love

Come on, come on Turn a little faster
Come on, come on The world will follow after
Come on, come on Cause everybody's after love

So I said I'm a snowball running
Running down into the spring that's coming all this love
Melting under blue skies
Belting out sunlight Shimmering love
Well baby I surrender To the strawberry ice cream
Never ever end of all this love
Well I didn't mean to do it
But there's no escaping your love
These lines of lightning
Mean we're never alone, Never alone, no, no

Come on, Come on Move a little closer
Come on, Come on I want to hear you whisper
Come on, Come on Settle down inside my love

Come on, come on Jump a little higher
Come on, come onIf you feel a little lighter
Come on, come on We were once Upon a time in love
We're accidentally in love Accidentally in love (x7)
I'm In Love, I'm in Love, I'm in Love, I'm in Love, I'm in Love, I'm in Love,Accidentally (X 2)
Come on, come on Spin a little tighter
Come on, come on And the world's a little brighter
Come on, come on Just get yourself inside her
Love ...I'm in love
