Here are the live scores, updates, and results of the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup between the Rain or Shine (ROS) and the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Gin Kings, scheduled on November 13, 2020, at 6:45 PM.
Top-seed Barangay Ginebra is set to face anew one of the three teams who succeeded in beating them in the grueling PBA bubble elimination rounds, the Elasto Painters.
In their October 27 skirmish, Beau Belga anchored ROS in an 85-82 win in overtime against the Gin Kings. Belga came off the bench to notch a double-double of 20 points and 10 rebounds on top of four assists and two steals.
However, this time around for the eighth-seeded team, ROS must defeat Barangay Ginebra today to force a do-or-die match this Sunday to advance to the semis.
Unfortunately for the Caloy Garcia-coached Rain or Shine, their opponent is well-rested, heading to their skirmish later. The Gin Kings had had plenty of rest since a cruising 102-80 win over Terrafirma last Monday.
“The good news is we’re done, so we’ve got a few days to rest. So from this day on, we could use that to go ahead. We don’t know who to prepare for, so it’s all about taking care of ourselves, making sure we get ourselves ready, making sure we understand the pressure of being the No. 1 seed,” said Ginebra head coach Tim Cone after their last match in the eliminations.
The Elasto is coming off a sorry 88-90 loss to Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters just last Wednesday, marking the E-Painters’ sixth game in eight days.
