BARANGAY Ginebra ended Platinum Karaoke’s bid of advancing in the knockout stage of the PBA 3x3 Second conference grand finals after scoring a come-from-behind 22-19 win on Wednesday at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
Jayson David had eight points in leading the Kings’ charge as it topped Pool B with a perfect 2-0 slate.
The loss by Platinum was its second straight to bow out of the race for the P750,000 top purse, and gave Terrafirma 3x3 (1-1) a free-ride to the next round.

The Kings face the Beermen in the playoffs, while the Dyip battle the Tropang Giga.
