The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel target to extend their winning run as they tackle GlobalPort Batang Pier in what promises to be an explosive clash in the SMART BRO PBA Philippine Cup Wednesday at SMART-Araneta Coliseum.
Ginebra and GlobalPort lock horns at 7 p.m. after the curtain-raiser between the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters and the Blackwater Elite at 4:15 p.m. Both games will be aired live on TV5.
Ginebra (3-3) is looking to extend a rare two-game winning streak, a feat they last achieved in February last season.
The Gin Kings edged the Mahindra Enforcers, 80-76, last Sunday and are looking to nail a third straight win, something which they haven’t done for more than a year now....
MANILA, Philippines – Barangay Ginebra starting slotman Greg Slaughter and two-time league MVP June Mar Fajardo are currently engaged in a toe-to-toe battle for the Best Player award in the season-opening Smart Bro-PBA Philippine Cup.
But between the two, Slaughter appears even more motivated this season as evidenced in his PBA career-best numbers of 22.8 points, 15.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists, halfway through the single-round eliminations of the All-Filipino conference.
The 6-foot-11 Ginebra big man amassed 43.8 statistical points to lead the pack in the BPC, helping the Kings climb to an even 3-3 win-loss record after a slow start this conference....
“It’s good to get a second in a row and follow up the last win. It wasn’t pretty. But you know me. Right now, we’re not into pogi points,” Cone told sportswriters right after the Ginebra win – its third in six SMART BRO PBA Philippine Cup games.
“We’re just out there trying to grind out possessions and hopefully win more than the other team and win the game at this point. That’s really just where we are right now.”...
Barangay Ginebra San Miguel finally built a winning streak after a long while as they turned back the Mahindra Enforcers, 8-76, in the SMART BRO PBA Philippine Cup Sunday evening at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.
Greg Slaughter didn’t have his usual numbers as he posted 16 points and eight boards in this one. But his showing was still enough for Ginebra (3-3) to move to the .500 mark.
“Gregzilla” got enough support from fellow frontliners Joe Devance (14 points), Japeth Aguilar (12) and newcomer Jervy Cruz (10) as they had to hurdle a tough stand by Mahindra in the game....
The Gin Kings (2-3) ripped Meralco, 89-64, last Tuesday to get back to the winning track and they are hoping to continue their fine form against Mahindra (1-4) which is on a three-game skid.
The Gin Kings put up their worthiest showing under coach Tim Cone, making good use of all their advantages to fashion out an 89-64 rout of the Bolts in Binan, Laguna Tuesday....
