The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the NLEX Road Warriors at 6:45 P.M. on June 23, 2019 live from the Batangas City Coliseum in Batangas.
The Gin Kings are eyeing for their two-game winning streak and the Road Warriors also have the same thing in mind and hoping that they’ll sweep their remaining games to improve its playoffs chances when PBA resumes in Batangas City Coliseum this evening.
A news broke out several days ago that shook the PBA landscape.
That’s the blockbuster trade which involves that Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and the NorthPort Batang Pier.
Stanley Pringle is now a Gin Kings in exchange for Sol Mercado, Kevin Ferrer and Jervy Cruz.
Yesterday, the three ex-Ginebra had their first action wearing the orange uniform and immediately made impact to coach Pido Jarencia squad.
The trio logged in double-figures in scoring and Kevin Ferrer was named as the Best Player of the Game.
Now it’s time for Stanley Pringle to showcase his skills under the watch of coach Time Cone.
This is what NLEX probably has anticipated and they may already have a defensive strategy to slow down the new acquired shifty guard of Ginebra.
“It’s an out-of-town game and we have to prepare hard especially as Stanley (Pringle) is already playing for them as I understand,” said Road Warriors head coach Yeng Guiao.
NLEX chance to make it to the second round of the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup is now starting to flicker.
Yet the fiery coach and also the chief bench tactician of Gilas Pilipinas will try to make one win at a time.
“We’re focused on our next game. We’re not thinking of anything else,” he said.
“Kahit papaano, it’s something positive to pin our hopes on. Siguro it could also be an encouragement for us to keep on playing as hard as we can. Baka mag milagro pa,” Guiao added.
