Here are the live scores, updates, and results of the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup between the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Gin Kings and the Meralco Bolts, scheduled on November 18, 2020, at 6:30 PM.
The Meralco Bolts will try to beat an upper-rank team once again, this time, the first-seeded Gin Kings.
Last Sunday, the Bolts dethroned the injury-plagued five-time defending champions San Miguel Beermen in a lopsided match, 90-68.
Meralco’s 16-0 surged in the third quarter proved so much for SMB, which led to a 75-48 bulge and eventually to Leo Austria-coached team’s demise.
With the win, the Norman Black-coached team arranged a best-of-five match-up with eliminations topnotcher and early semifinalist Barangay Ginebra, the same team which has beaten Meralco in three of the last four Governors Cup finals.
Like Phoenix, Meralco, and TNT, Ginebra is determined to advance in the PBA restart’s Finals.
Stanley Pringle and Japeth Aguilar aided their team in disposing of the eight-seeded Rain or Shine Elasto Painters the last time out, 81-73.
Aguilar finished with a double-double of 23 points and 11 rebounds, while Pringle, despite tallying just 10 points, provided the crucial spark in the endgame.
