    HE is far from top form, but Greg Slaughter has been making a big impact for Barangay Ginebra as seen in the team’s 121-94 win over TNT Katropa in Game One of the PBA Governors' Cup semifinals on Monday.

    "I definitely don't feel that I'm at 100 percent," Slaughter said during the post-game interview.

    His stats, though, showed otherwise.

    The 7-foot center finished with 16 points, seven rebounds, and five assists, while proving to be an imposing presence in the paint with four blocks in 21 minutes of play.

    And Slaughter believes there's much work to do as far as his conditioning is concerned.

    "I know I still got a lot of work to do, especially after this conference," he said.

    "I know I'll be working hard, but for now, there's nothing I can do now. We gotta play these games every other day, so whatever I can give, I'll give to the team."

      He is expected to play the same major role when the two teams meet in Game Two on Wednesday in Batangas City.

      "We just gotta stay aggressive on defense, maintain our defensive intensity, and just keep executing on our offense, and you know, just have each other's backs like we did this past couple of games," he said.
