0 149

Quarterfinals sa Miyerkoles:
(Smart Araneta Coliseum)
3:00pm — **NLEX vs Alaska
6:00pm — *TNT vs Ginebra (*may twice-to-beat advantage)

KUMPLETO na ang seeding sa quarterfinals ng PBA Governors Cup, sinipa ng Phoenix ang NorthPort 101-98 sa knockout for 8th.

May handicap na twice-to-win ang 5th-8th laban sa higher-ranked teams.

No. 1 Magnolia vs. No. 8 Fuel Masters, No. 2 NLEX vs. No. 7 Alaska, No. 3 TNT vs. No. 6 Ginebra, at No. 4 Meralco vs. No. 5 San Miguel.

Rematch ng Gin Kings at Tropang Giga na tinalo ng crowd darlings noong 2020 Philippine Cup Finals.

Ginebra ang huling kampeon ng season-ending conference noong 2019-20 season bago ang pandemic.
Laban lang ang Gins kahit twice-to-win.

Tiwala si coach Tim Cone na kahit injured ang key players niyang sina Stanley Pringle at Jared Dillinger, pupukpok sina Justin Brownlee, Scottie Thompson, Japeth Aguilar, at kahit si veteran Jeff Chan.

“This team is capable. We have the talent,” ani Cone. “Even though we’re missing Stanley and Jared and nobody really talks about how much we miss Aljon (Mariano), still, we have plenty of talent left to do what we need to do in the playoffs.”

Si rookie Mikey Williams ang pangunahing alas ng TNT, kasama sina veterans Jayson Castro, RR Pogoy, Troy Rosario, Poy Erram at import Aaron Fuller.

Dehado kung titignan ang Gins, pero may sixth man na sila sa Smart Araneta Coliseum na full capacity na ang crowd.

“We really have no excuse,” dagdag ni Cone. “We need to go out there and perform in playoff time.” (VE)
