GlobalPort will try to avenge its first loss against Alaska Aces while Barangay Ginebra is looking for a back-to-back wins after they gained confidence by beating league leading Rain or Shine last December 4.
GlobalPort gave up 28 turnovers when they played against Alaska Aces which translates into 26 points. Another reason for Batang Pier loss is probably the return of Calvin Abueva in Alaska’s lineup.
Ball rotation and unselfish basketball was the key to Ginebra win against RoS. Coach Tim Cone’s team logged a total of 26 assists in that game, 7 coming from Scottie Thompson and 6 for LA Tenorio comapared to only 11 for Elasto Painters.
Despite of commiting more turnovers and was out-rebounded, Barangay Ginebra was still able to snag its first win and gave RoS its only loss for the ongoing 2016-17 PBA Philippine Cup.
