Here is the PBA live streaming video of the clash between the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and the Meralco Bolts which will take place at the Angeles University Foundation Sports Arena & Cultural Center in Angeles City, Pampanga. The game will start at 6:45 PM on October 18, 2020.
Back in the 2019 Governors’ Cup Finals, the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and the Meralco Bolts went head-to-head for the championship. Both teams played hard against each other, but the Meralco Bolts and their magnificent import Allen Durham came up short against the Gin-Kings and got lost in the series.
In tonight’s game, the Meralco Bolts and the Barangay Ginebra will not be playing with their beloved imports, since because the league is currently in the the Philippine Cup.
But, players who were present at that time will play tonight’s game such as Chris Newsome for the Meralco Bolts and LA Tenorio for the Barangay.
In their previous game, the Meralco Bolts were carried by 3 players, namely, Baser Amer, Allein Maliksi who was coming from the bench and Cliff Hodge.
“The Hammer” scored 15 points and managed to drop 3 three-pointers, while his teammate Maliksi was able to finish the game with 17 points and got 7 rebounds.
While his teammates were taking care of the scoring production, Chris Newsome took the role of being a tight defender against the Aces as he picked 4 steals. He finished the game with 6 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and dished out 5 assists.
Meanwhile, the Gin-Kings are enjoying a 2-0 start since the restart of the PBA.
Aljon Mariano, who really improved his game in their past two games is now averaging 14 points per game and averaging 8 rebounds per game.
Prince Caperal has proven himself as a sniper from beyond the arc. The big man scored 24 big points in their last game against the Blackwater Elite while also taking 7 attempts outside the three-point line where he dropped 5 of them.
Caperal has big shoes to fill in his next games, since because the Barangay Ginebra is lacking big men.
