The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Talk ‘N Text KaTropa at 7:00 P.M. on June 12, 2019 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
The Gin Kings wanted to make a bounce back game after their they got humiliated by Rain or Shine Elasto Painters in their last outing while the KaTropa are looking to join the Blackwater Elite at the top of the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup standings when the tournament resumes tonight at the Big Dome.
Ginebra head coach Tim Cone isn’t a happy man when they played RoS five nights ago. The reason? They got lambasted with coach Caloy Garcia squad led by Rey Nambatac and his former import Denzel Bowles.
Coach Cone had an observation and he thinks his locals depending too much on Justin Brownlee scoring skills.
“(Rain or Shine) played a box and one (defense) on us. Basically, they’re saying that they just got to stop one guy and the four other guys aren’t good enough to beat them,” said Cone.
“Our four guys gonna have to take the challenge up and prove they can go out and win games and not rely on Justin too much,” he added.
That strong motivation message of the winning-est coach in the PBA will be tested this evening and its fans wanted to see if they have responded and deliver another victory.
The KaTropa won back-to-back as they enter in their today’s scheduled game and they wanted to add more on that.
Their latest victim was the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup champion and they made June Mar Fajardo and their import Charles Rhodes like an ordinary basketball player.
Terrence Jones once again demonstrated his NBA skills and shown why he was a first-rounder draft pick.
Jones was again spectacular in that game as he dropped 30 points, 18 rebounds and 5 blocks.
