Ginebra's Japeth Aguilar challenging the defense of SMB's June Mar Fajardo. PBA IMAGESBarangay Ginebra’s roller coaster ride this 2017 PBA Philippine Cup continues.

Alternating wins and losses through their first seven games, the Gin Kings have struggled to consistently churn out performances worthy of a winning streak.

Though there were positives like the way it performed against San Miguel on Sunday, the team still drew the short end of the stick, with the game ending in a 72-70 loss.

Japeth Aguilar is happy to see Ginebra fighting until the very end as it almost overhauled a 10-point deficit and nearly forced overtime had LA Tenorio’s floater connected in the clutch.

“I’m happy with the team’s effort. We battled from first to the last second. I think we put up a great defense but that’s why San Miguel is the defending champion because they find ways to win,” he said.
 
The lanky forward put up 17 points, 12 rebounds, and two blocks in the close shave, but that still wasn’t enough to string a pair of victories for the crowd darlings.
