Here are the live scores, updates, and results of the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup between the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Gin Kings and the TNT Tropang Giga, scheduled on December 6, 2020, at 6:00 PM.
The Bobby Ray Parks Jr-less TNT Tropang Giga triumphed over the first-seeded Barangay Ginebra to secure their first win in their race-to-four finals series by limiting the high-scoring Gin Kings to just 67 points.
Roger Pogoy, Troy Rosario, Jayson Castro, Simon Enciso, and Poy Erram collectively scored 74 points, with Pogoy leading the pack with 18 points, on top of 6 rebounds, 6 steals, and 3 assists.
Meanwhile, Rosario, who previously had low-scoring performances in their crucial games in the PBA playoffs, leading to the All-Filipino conference’s finale, finally snapped out of his personal slump and scored 15 points, on top of 2 blocks.
Moreover, coming off the bench, veteran player Jayson Castro also played a key role in the win as he contributed 15 points, 10 assists, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals. Simon Enciso chipped in 14 points, and Poy Erram contributed 12 points, 14 rebounds, and 2 blocks.
LA Tenorio and the rest of the Tim Cone-coached Ginebra blew cold, allowing the Tropang Giga to turn the tide in the last three-quarters of their Friday matchup to gain the victory.
A win by the Bong Ravena-mentored TNT Tropang Giga later tonight would equal the playing field when these two duel anew for the fifth consecutive time. However, a win by their finals foe, the league-leading Barangay Ginebra, would mean they’re in jeopardy as they would need to win Game 5 and 6 to force a decider Game 7 to claim the All-Filipino championship title.
