Slaughter the difference maker in Ginebra’s game 1 win

LUCENA — Anticipating the nerves to come on Friday, Greg Slaughter was as cool as ever when he played his first championship game in his professional career.

“I didn’t feel too much pressure,” he admitted.

Slaughter settling down really was instrumental in Ginebra’s 102-87 Game 1 victory over Meralco, as the former Rookie of the Year came off the bench and poured 14 points, eight rebounds, and two blocks.

The whole Gin Kings crew likewise looked poised from the get-go, controlling the game from start to finish to draw first blood in the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup Finals.

“We played a good team game today, played good team defense. Everyone chipped in and did their part,” said Slaughter, who is clear frontrunner for this conference’s Best Player plum.
