Here are the live scores, updates, and results of the 2022 PBA Commissioner’s Cup between the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and the Bay Area Dragons scheduled on October 9, 2022, at 6:45 PM.
The league’s fan-favorite Gin Kings will try to snatch their second win this 2022 PBA Commissioner’s Cup while the Dragons wanted to keep their perfect record and will try to disappoint the team “NSD” fans. All of this basketball action will be witnessed tonight at the PhilSports Arena.
After getting humiliated by the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters during their second conference debut, the squad led by head coach Tim Cone went roaring against their long-time rival, particularly in the Governors’ Cup, the Meralco Bolts last October 2 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Scottie Thompson teased a triple-double output in that game as he bounced back from an awful performance against RoS. Similarly, the good-ole Justin Brownlee whom many fell in love with because of his basketball talents finally appears.
Apart from those two Gin Kings players, Stanley Pringle gave a glimpse of how good he was especially when he was with the NorthPort Batang Pier as he led the league in scoring multiple times.
For sure, those spectacular individual acts will go unnoticed by the eyes of their new opponent, the visiting squad from the Bay Area.
Will this be the moment that Dragons’ shifty guard Myles Powell finally will meet his match in the PBA? The only sure headache that head coach Brian Goorjian can throw to Ginebra is when they unleash their own version of Kraken in the person of Chuanxing Liu who stands at 7-foot-5.
With the EASL games which were initially scheduled this October, Bay Area can now focus its attention on this current tournament.
“It’s out of our control,” said Goorjian. “We just know we got a tournament playing the top teams. Right now, it’s how important is this (the Commissioner’s Cup) for us and how much we are enjoying this competition.”
