Greg looks forward to Game 1

MANILA, Philippines — Ginebra coach Tim Cone used the Chicago Bulls, the most dominant NBA team in the 1990s, to remind his players of the importance of tonight’s Game 1 against Meralco.

Greg Slaughter, the seven-foot Gin King, said he will keep it in mind when the finals of the PBA Governors Cup fires off tonight out of town.

“It’s very important. We were just talking about it in practice earlier,” said Slaughter, who nursed a knee injury when Ginebra scored on a buzzer-beater to beat Meralco for the title last year.

“Coach Tim gave us an example of how the Bulls during their time won 15 of 16 Game Ones in their post-season appearances,” he said.

The Bulls, starring Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, won all their six NBA crowns in a decade, with titles coming in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997 and 1998.

Slaughter is in his first PBA final, and tonight’s game will give him a feel of how important any series opener is.
