Fatigue not a concern for Brownlee after playing extended minutes

BOCAUE — Sol Mercado’s injury has truly thrown a wrench into Barangay Ginebra’s rotation for the rest of the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup Finals.

Without the speedy guard, Ginebra coach Tim Cone knew he needed to improvise.

And on Sunday, Cone did just that by extending the minutes of his import Justin Brownlee and chief playmaker LA Tenorio.

“We had to extend those guys,” Cone said. “What are we saving them for? We got Monday and Tuesday to rest before we play on Wednesday. I told Justin during one of the timeouts, ‘Justin, you ain’t gonna sit down here in the second half.'”

“We didn’t think (Allen) Durham was gonna sit down, so Justin wasn’t gonna sit down, so might as well not save yourself.”
