JDV: It’s gonna be emotional, it’s gonna be intense, it’s the finals’

JOE Devance doesn’t expect the tension to die down anytime soon as the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals between Ginebra and San Miguel heats up. “It’s the finals. If you don’t have any emotions, you don’t deserve to be here. That’s just a part of it,” said Ginebra’s veteran do-it-all forward. “It’s gonna be emotional, it’s gonna be intense, it’s the finals.” The first two games of the best-of-seven championship series have been decided by an average of 26.5 points, but the action has been nothing...

Japeth Aguilar still 50-50 for Game Two owing to Achilles injury

JAPETH Aguilar is keeping his hopes up that he’ll be able to play for Ginebra come Game Two of its best-of-five semifinal series against Rain or Shine in the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup. The 6-foot-9 forward shared that he’s dealing with an Achilles injury that kept him out of the Gin Kings’ 102-89 victory over the Elasto Painters on Sunday. Asked if he’ll be able to play on Tuesday, Aguilar curtly responded, “Sana,” before giving a thumbs up. “Tutal may games pa naman, hopefully sa Game 2, makabalik na.” Aguilar has been unable to...

Slaughter proud to hold fort for Ginebra in Aguilar’s absence

GREG Slaughter admitted it’s just not the same without frontline partner Japeth Aguilar. But Greg did well by his lonesome. The 6-foot-11 slotman contributed 20 points and six rebounds in extended minutes in Aguilar’s absence as Ginebra beat Rain or Shine, 102-89, in Game One of their PBA Commissioner’s Cup semifinal playoff. “Man, it’s huge. Japeth is a real big part of our everything, you know. It’s a big blow for us,” Slaughter said while keeping his fingers crossed that Aguilar will recover in time from an Achilles...

Cone takes no chances, puts Brownlee on in-form Yap

TIM Cone said Ginebra didn’t take any chances against James Yap following his scoring explosion in Rain or Shine’s quarterfinal series against GlobalPort. “We took him very seriously as we had to,” Cone said of his former player at Purefoods. “There’s a reason why he won MVPs; not just one but multiple MVPs, and there is a reason he led us to a grand slam. We had all that in mind.” Yap had 15 points but went just 5-of-18 from the field in Game One of their PBA Commissioner’s Cup semifinal series, allowing Ginebra to...

Brownlee, Chan spark Ginebra rout of Rain or Shine in Game One

JUSTIN Brownlee got Barangay Ginebra going early o the way to a 102-89 rout of Rain or Shine on Sunday in Game One of their PBA Commissioner’s Cup semifinal playoff at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum. Brownlee had a near triple-double for Ginebra as he finished with 35 points, 14 rebounds, nine assists, two steals, and four blocks as the Kings overcame a mid-game wobble to draw first blood in the best-of-five semifinal series. Jeff Chan played his best game in a Ginebra uniform, incidentally, against his former team, as he had 21 points in 21...

Ginebra dominates Rain or Shine in Game 1

BARANGAY Ginebra finished the way it started to notch a 102-89 victory over Rain or Shine Sunday at the start of their PBA Commissioner’s Cup semi-final series at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. The pair of Justin Brownlee and Jeff Chan led a balanced offensive by the Kings which was most evident in a searing 21-2 run over a seven-minute span in the fourth quarter that fully put the game away. Before the Elasto Painters knew what hit them, they were behind by 78-102 and were left looking forward to bouncing back in Game 2 of the...

Slaughter bracing for next tough import battle: Johnson or White?

GINEBRA is on a romp heading to the PBA semifinals and the Gin Kings’ confidence is certainly on an all-time high. Not only are they riding high on a seven-game winning run, they’re also heading into the final stretch of the conference healthy – unlike last year where they missed Greg Slaughter due to an ACL injury. Now that Slaughter’s in the pink or health, Ginebra is more dangerous as ever, evident in their 104-90 win over Meralco to complete a two-game sweep in the Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals....

Cone warns Ginebra 7-game win streak ‘both a blessing and curse’

BARANGAY Ginebra coach Tim Cone got tongue-tied as he struggled to utter the words “three fresh guys,” referring to how three players took turns in defending against Meralco import Arinze Onuaku. “Tagalog lang ako, mahirap mag-English eh. Nag-nose bleed ako,” said Cone, drawing laughs from reporters during the post-game press conference. That perhaps was one of the few things the Kings did wrong in Game Two of their PBA Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinal series against Meralco – and in a win streak that now stretches to seven games....

Ginebra marches to Final Four with repeat win against Meralco

THERE would be no denying LA Tenorio his moment under the spotlight. Justin Brownlee scored a game-high 36 points, but it was Tenorio who shone brightest in one crucial stretch as Barangay Ginebra pummeled Meralco 104-90 Wednesday to advance to the PBA Commissioner’s Cup semi-finals at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. After the Bolts whittled an 18-point deficit to just six, Tenorio promptly buried a corner 3 then followed it up with a steal and an assist which Brownlee translated into an emphatic dunk that fully sparked the Kings’...

Ginebra not yet in peak form says Tenorio

LA Tenorio thinks Barangay Ginebra San Miguel has yet to reach its full potential even after advancing to the semi-finals of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup with seven straight wins after a 1-5 start. Ginebra continued its winning ways Wednesday by completing a quarterfinal sweep of Meralco, 104-90, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, to arrange a best-of-five showdown with either Rain or Shine and GlobalPort in the semis. Rain or Shine and GlobalPort dispute the remaining semis berth Thursday evening at the Mall of Asia Arena. Regardless of...
