The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Alaska Aces at 6:45 P.M. on February 5, 2017 in Ynares Center, Antipolo.
The quarterfinals series for the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and Alaska Aces will officially starts this evening.
The famous “do-or-die” mantra of Ginebra will be tested once again as they attempt to survive this series and move to the semi-finals round.
Japeth Aguilar who got injured the last time they played against Blackwater and returned back when they played against NLEX.
Aguilar seems like he just took a one day off as he’s still so dominant inside the paint and appears like no traces of injuries against the Road Warriors.
Coach Tim Cone is expecting the same performance from his athletic big-man when they square-off his former team where he led to several championships.
Alaska Aces finished the 2016-17 PBA Philippine Cup elimination round as second in team standings.
That will give them a twice-to-beat advantage and aiming to close it as early as tonight and avoid giving Ginebra a momentum if ever there is a next game.
The last time these two teams meet was last December 18, 2016. Alaska went victorious with a blowout 101-86.
