BARANGAY Ginebra and San Miguel look to finish off their opponents in Game Two of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals on Wednesday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
The Kings take on Meralco at 4:30 p.m., while the Beermen clash with the KaTropa at 7 p.m.
The lower seed teams claimed the best-of-three series opening games on Monday with Ginebra beating Meralco, 88-81, and San Miguel upending TNT, 121-110.
Ginebra coach Tim Cone definitely expects Meralco to go all out with the Bolts’ conference on the line.
“They're gonna come out with great force to start to the game, and we gotta come out with our own force and see if we can meet it,” said Cone.
Justin Brownlee showed the way for the Kings in Game One, finishing with 25 points.
Meralco coach Norman Black blasted the officiating of Game One and hopes to see a better match this time.
“I just hope we can come out and get a better shake from the guys who are governing the games,” Black said.
The Beermen won Game One in impressive fashion, coming back from 23 points down to beat TNT.
“Because of the experience of the team, alam nila how to get back from that kind of deficit,” said Austria.
TNT mulled on putting Game One under protest after team manager Virgil Villavicencio signed the scoresheet, but management later decided against it.
