The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Meralco Bolts at 7:00 P.M. on March 27, 2019 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Gin Kings are secured for a playoff slot and will try to hold their number three position while the Bolts will make an attempt to squeeze the remaining juice of their post-elims hopes when PBA resume this evening at the Big Dome.
Ginebra’s chance to take the number two spot from Rain or Shine Elasto Painters fades-away when NorthPort Batang Pier defeated TNT KaTropa last Sunday.
No more quotient system discussion and it appears that coach Tim Cone and his troops will now focus on their team’s winning momentum.
Barangay Ginebra is currently on a roll with its three-game winning streak and they can even boost it by having five consecutive wins.
However, there may be winning fatigue that can occur along the way, in this scenario the Gin Kings fans can expect the coaching genius from Tim Cone especially on how to prepare his players to a much tougher post-elimination matches.
The Bolts on the other hand are struggling. This is the fact that coach Norman Black continue to miss the services of his key players like Jared Dillenger and Ranidel de Ocampo due to injuries.
At present, they’re at the 11th spot but in case they can win this game their chances on making it to the quarterfinals will increase.
The last two slots going to the second round of the All-Filipino conference still not locked in.
The NLEX Road Warriors, Alaska Aces and the Columbian Dyip are all sharing that spot having only four wins.
The Bolts can still catch-up as they have 3-7 slate.
