BARANGAY Ginebra and San Miguel look to take control of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup finals series in Game Five on Sunday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
The match is set at 6:30 p.m.
The Gin Kings tied the series at two games apiece on Friday, beating the Beermen, 132-94.
Ginebra coach Tim Cone has branded the finals series as ‘strange’ following four runaway wins by the winners. Cone, however, likes the position the Kings are in.
“I’m as shocked as everybody is over this series,” Cone said. “You tell me before this series we’d be 2-2, I’d be very happy with that. Our goal from the very beginning is let’s play seven games. Let’s see if we can get this team to seven games, that’s been our goal.”
“I guess the last thing to say is this doesn’t make us very secure for Game 5… We don’t know what’s going to happen in Game 5. But you think that because you won big, now you’re going to feel good about going to Game 5.
“All it does is just scare me even more cause we’ve seen their fight coming out of the last time we did this so we’ll see,” Cone said.
The conference's Best Import Justin Brownlee had 37 points and 11 rebounds for Ginebra in the win, while getting support from the locals in Greg Slaughter, LA Tenorio and Joe Devance.
“Our team has a chance to go on and dominate the league, but right now, a lot of teams are talking about our team, a super team, a strong team. But now, you can see it now. Ginebra is also a strong team,” Austria said.
