Justin Brownlee would not let Barangay Ginebra just fade quietly into the night.
Brownlee notched a new career-high 46 points in leading the Kings to a breakthrough 107-103 victory over Magnolia Ang Pambansang Manok Wednesday that at extended their PBA Governors Cup semifinal duel at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The explosion, which came on top of 19 rebounds, five assists and three blocked shots, was complemented by LA Tenorio coming alive in the fourth quarter and Joe Devance returning from injury and helping out in a big way.
As a result, Ginebra managed to overcome an early 18-point deficit and survive what is arguably the closest game in the match-up yet.
The Kings still trail the best-of-five duel 1-2, but seemingly got the momentum shift as the series moves to the Ynares center in Antipolo City for Game 4 on Friday.
