The Gin Kings dropped Game 2 of the semifinals to the San Miguel Beermen, but that didn’t deter Tenorio’s confidence in his team.
“I think in this game, we were the ones who beat ourselves,” the Ginebra playmaker said. “The most important thing is we know how to beat this team and we have the confidence to beat this team.”
“I think the whole team has the confidence on how to beat [San Miguel].”...
The series between the two teams is now tied, 1-1.
June Mar Fajardo led the way for San Miguel with a double-double of 18 points and 23 rebounds to go with two blocks....
“It’s not that big of a deal,” Cone said after Ginebra’s 115-108 victory over defending champion San Miguel Beer in Game 1 of their best-of-five PBA Governors’ Cup series last Monday.
Game 2, however, is a big deal for Cone as another win would put Ginebra up 2-0 and pull within a win shy of advancing to its first finals appearance since a runner-up finish in the 2013 Commissioner’s Cup....

Outside of Japeth Aguilar's hammer dunks, it was Thompson's rebounding, slashing, and playmaking that generated the most oohs and aahs from the crowd. He orchestrated a stunning run in the fourth quarter, assisting on easy baskets to veteran Mark Caguioa three consecutive times to help the Gin Kings claim a double-digit lead.
