Taking full advantage of Glen Rice Jr.'s early ejection, Justin Brownlee set a new PBA career-high of 46 points, powering the Gin Kings to a 3-1 series win.

The victory sets up a Finals rematch against top-seed Meralco. Game 1 will tip off on October 13 in Lucena City.

Down by two, 92-94, with 7:28 to go, the Gin Kings fired a 12-0 run to take control of the game. Brownlee first hit a booming three to finally give the lead to Ginebra, 97-94, before another triple courtesy of LA Tenorio capped the crucial rally, 104-94.

Before that final run, Ginebra had to first claw its way back from an 18-point deficit early in the second half as the KaTropa flipped the switch following Rice's exit.
