In a previous breakthrough, NorthPort cracked the PBA Final Four for the first time with a shocker over Barangay Ginebra.
The Batang Pier now look at a loftier goal. And to achieve the target, NorthPort must once again pull the rug from under Ginebra.
One game down, and two to go, the fired-up Batang Pier push their aspiration in Game Two of their PBA Governors Cup best-of-five semifinal showdown with the Gin Kings at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Monday.
On Saturday, Ginebra coach Tim Cone’s worry had proven right, with the Batang Pier coming out from a long breather well prepared for the series opener.
Looking always a step ahead, the Batang Pier crushed the Kings, 124-90, for the crucial head start in the series.
“For teams in the semis, it seems like a long time between games but for Ginebra, it seems like a really quick turnaround,” said Cone on the eve of the series opener.
