Here is the PBA live score and results of the games which is scheduled on February 9, 2019 (Saturday).
Barangay Ginebra San Miguel travels to the hometown of Scottie Thompson to tackle one of the teams which made big improvment, the Blackwater Elite.
Playing on the road can bring distractions to the team and that’s one of the concern of Ginebra’s head coach Tim Cone in their 5:00 PM showdown.
Yet, he advised his squad to try to control whatever they can in order for them to keep their focus on the game.
“I always tell my players to control the things you can control. We cannot control the schedule so we have to deal with it the best we can,” said Cone.
Apart from that, there’s the travel challenge as the hotel where they’re staying will take several hours for them to reach the coliseum.
“You travel two hours going to the venue just for practice, then two hours again going back to the hotel,” he said.
“The travel wears you out. But we’re Ginebra. Where we go, the fans go. They need us around so we understand that. We accept it, and we accept the challenge of it,” said Cone.
