The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Meralco Bolts at 6:45 P.M. on May 28, 2017 in Ynares Center – Antipolo.
It’s too early to say but the 2016 PBA Governor’s Cup rematch is here.
Gin Kings is piling once again another winning streak after its loss to Rain or Shine while the Bolts aims to break its two-game losing skid.
The “Never-Say-Die” team were sharp when they faced the San Miguel Beermen last week. They have executed their small-ball offense very well and resulted to a win.
However, during its game against Blackwater last Wednesday, Barangay Ginebra seems lost its energy and the 2-8 Elite was seen leading in the third quarter.
Although they ended up winning coach Tim Cone also saw something wrong with his team.
“We escaped Blackwater (Friday night) and we know we’ll have to play a more complete game against Meralco if we hope to get by them,” said Cone.
“Coming from a couple of losses, we expect Meralco to bounce back hard against us. Add that to a tough turnaround from Binan to Antipolo, it makes this game double hard for us,” Cone added.
After a magnificent start in the second conference and was even at the top spot of the standings for several months, the Bolts saw their record slowly slipping away.
“The fact that we played poorly and the fact that my import is non-existent, that really concerns me moving forward, because whether we have twice-to-beat, whether it’s a best-of-three, we still have to play somebody in the quarterfinals,” said Black after their last game.
“So we wanna go into the quarters playing good basketball, and in the last couple of games we played quite poorly, so we just have to find a way to turn it around,” he added.
