After denying SMB the Grand Slam, Tim Cone hopes Ginebra won’t have ‘championship hangover’ in semis

For Barangay Ginebra coach Tim Cone, beating the San Miguel Beermen was like winning a championship.

After ending the Beermen’s Grand Slam aspirations on Wednesday night, the winningest mentor in PBA history is hoping his Gin Kings won’t have a championship hangover of sorts when they continue their campaign in the semifinals where they’ll face either Rain or Shine or TNT.

“It’s almost got a championship feel to it. Give credit to San Miguel. Beating San Miguel is like almost winning a championship. But we’ve got to make sure we’ll get over that, make sure we don’t have a championship hangover in the next series,” Cone told sportswriters.

“It’s only one step. I’d like to think we’ll put this away quickly and move on and get focused on either Talk ‘N Text or Rain or Shine. That’s going to be the message in the locker room. This game is over.”

Cone said that coming into the game against the Beermen, the twice-to-beat Ginebra wasn’t daunted by San Miguel which had aimed to become the sixth team in PBA history to complete a Grand Slam.

“For us, to prevent a Grand Slam, we’ll make the semis,” Cone said.
