The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel will solidify its number one position in the standings and carry its winning momentum when the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup playoffs will start few days from now.
The Gin Kings will take on the Talk ‘N Text KaTropa Texters in the Big Dome at 6:45 P.M.
This match is a potential preview of the the number one versus the number eight squad where teams in Top Four have a twice-to-beat advantage.
Currently have an 8-2 win-loss card, team NSD could end up either number 1 or number 2. This game is also important to them as the playoffs picture still not clear.
However, one or two things are clear with Ginebra right now and that’s the return of “GregZilla” and the “Sol Train”.
Finally, Greg Slaughter and Sol Mercado are back in the Gin Kings lineup. Just in time for Ginebra head coach Tim Cone to have his key players back in action.
A week ago, Ginebra dueled with Magnolia Hotshots for another “Manila Classico” showdown. Each time Ginebra makes a huge lead, Magnolia will respond and mount a comeback.
Yet, the defending champs shown composure and didn’t fumble especially in the crucial stages of the game and the result was another victory for them.
