Finally the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel were able to get its 1000th franchise victory after they disposed the San Miguel Beermen in overtime, 110-107.
As good as it was advertised, the PBA Sunday’s and Father’s Day special ended in a dramatic fashion.
Forty eight minutes isn’t enough for these two teams and they have shown once again that each time they collide there’s no such thing as what they called “sister-team” as both the Gin Kings and the Beermen go all out.
Justin Brownlee played the entire ball-game and was never pulled out as he logged a game-high 53 minutes.
It was resulted to a 39 points and 15 rebounds for the beloved import of Ginebra and was named as the Bida Player of the Game.
The Beermen had several chances to either tie the game or takeover the lead in the extra period but the boys of coach Leo Austria unable to deliver the needed basket.
They were also import-less as the game entered the last two minutes for the second time as Charles Rhodes committed his last foul with 2:33 left in extension quarter.
Rhodes led SMB with his 34 points and 12 rebounds output while Alex Cabagnot added 21 markers.
The Gin Kings has ended their two-game losing skid and now back at the .500 winning percentage by having a 3-3 record.
For the Beermen they now dropped to 1-3 slate and still outside the top eight squad this 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
