NLEX def Brgy. Ginebra, 86-85 [SF Game 3 | 2021 Govs’ Cup | March 27, 2022]


Date Time

Sizzling on a four-game romp in post-elims play, the Barangay Ginebra Kings are determined to keep on going, eyeing a semis sweep of NLEX for a shot at a fourth PBA Governors’ Cup crown in five years.

Two-zero up and all pumped-up in the best-of-five semis series, the Kings go for the jugular in their 6:30 p.m. tiff with the beleaguered Road Warriors Sunday at the MOA Arena in Pasay City.

But coach Tim Cone anticipates a tough NLEX resistance.

“Closeout games are always hard because there’s desperation on the other side of the floor,” said Cone, also not discounting the chance of any team to fight back from a 0-2 down.

“I’ve been in that situation where we’re down 0-2, and we had a twice-to-beat disadvantage against TNT in the quarterfinals. So we know it’s possible,” Cone pointed out.

“With Yeng’s (Guiao) team, it almost seems probable. I mean, there’s always a team that can come back from that deficit, no doubt. So we just take Sunday (Game 3) as a game we prepare for and try to meet their intensity as we go,” he added.

The Gin Kings had their great preparation for Game Two which they took at 104-94 in the absence of Japeth Aguilar.
