Ginebra vs Blackwater Replay
The streaking Barangay Ginebra will try to solidify its number one spot in the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup standings while the Elite are looking to avoid on slipping and join back the bottom teams.
For the first time after the Chris Ellis and Dave Marcelo trade, the “Never-Say-Die” team will battle against its former players.
The only sad part is that, Chris Ellis won’t be suiting up for the Elite due to an injury while Marcelo will be ready to muscle up versus Greg Slaughter under the post.
“Chris will have a chance to really spread his wings and realize his full potential. His athleticism is just what Blackwater seemingly needs,” said Cone.
“As for Dave, his role significantly changed with Greg Slaughter’s return to the lineup, but with Blackwater, he should continue to get significant playing time,” Cone also said.
During the most awaited “Manila Classico”, Ginebra was able to escape against the Hotshots and needed to go into overtime only to secure a win.
Justin Brownlee was once again on fire as he torched the coach Chito Victolero team with his 33 points along with 10 boards.
Blackwater is one of the surprising teams this third conference.
After Henry Walker joined Blackwater, the usual eliminated team now looks to become a championship trophy contender squad.
Walker has helped the Elite to win four games in their last five outings.
Apart from their import, Michael Vincent DiGregorio is also playing well this conference. In his last five games, DiGregorio averaged 18.2 a ball-game.
“We will play to our very best to get a win and improve our chance of going into the playoffs,” said Blackwater coach Leo Isaac.
