The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel seems like having a scoring party in Batangas City as they pinned down the NLEX Road Warriors, 100-85.
Justin Brownlee ignited that party as he immediately scored 11 points in the opening quarter.
Since then it was all Barangay Ginebra in the entire ball-game.
Brownlee teased another triple-double performance with his 37 points, eight rebounds and seven assists production.
“Magic” Brownlee was later named as the Best Player of the Game.
Probably the main highlight of the match was the Gin Kings debut of Stanley Pringle. “Stan-the-Man” didn’t failed the team NSD fans expectations as he made 16 points and eight rebounds output while wearing the Ginebra uniform.
Now it seems that the debate if which team won the trade will now be over.
NorthPort Batang Pier won in a blowout after the arrival of Sol Mercado, Jervy Cruz and Kevin Ferrer. The situation is the same for Ginebra.
JP Erram lead the Road Warriors in scoring with 20 points and 14 rebounds while their import Tony Mitchell was outscored by Brownlee.
The high-flyer Mitchell was only held to 17 points and eight rebounds.
Ginebra has now climbed up in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup standings having a 4-3 record while the Road Warriors fell to 1-7 win-loss card.
