The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters at 7:00 P.M. on June 28, 2019 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
The Gin Kings wanted a three-game consecutive victories while the Fuel Masters will try to make a follow-up win when the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup continue this evening at the Big Dome.
Ginebra’s newly acquired player Stanley Pringle made his first test under the watch of coach Tim Cone and the result was flying colours.
Justin Brownlee was impressed by “Stan-the-Man’s” performance in their out-of-town game in Batangas City last Saturday.
“I think he fits great. Of course, he’s going to struggle a little bit learning the triangle and stuff like that. But he fits well. He’s got a good rhythm of the team and it’s going to be great moving forward,” said Brownlee.
Just like their import, coach Tim Cone also thinks the same of Pringle and he’s now ready to design more plays that will make their team more formidable.
“The thing that Stanley does is he makes everybody around him much better, just because he’s a big threat. We have a lot of confidence when we’re playing with him,” said the champion mentor.
“We’re still going to explore a lot of things to do with him. Justine and Stanley started really playing well together and it’s something we envisioned. We hope to see more of it.”
For Phoenix on the other hand, they have just switched off the winning streak of one of the tournament’s hottest team, the NorthPort Batang Pier.
Despite of having several players in the injured list, coach Louie Alas and his troops still able to deliver the goods.
Tonight, the Fuel Masters hopes that their magic formula will continue to work.
