    JUSTIN Brownlee is eager to continue for Ginebra, shrugging off ankle pain.

    He said there is nothing to worry about and he is ready for Game Two on Wednesday.

    “I came down on my ankle. I think it was a play where I got a lay-up and came down to my foot. I’m okay though. It was just a little twist and turn. Got hurt for quite a few minutes but I got over it,” said Brownlee.

    “No injuries in the finals, hopefully. Pray to God,” said Brownlee.
