The Governors’ Cup of the Philippines Basketball Association for 2019 will resume this evening and for its opening salvo is the semi-finals match between the Gin Kings and the Batang Pier.
For the second time in three seasons, the troops of Ginebra head coach Tim Cone denied the San Miguel Beermen to catch the elusive grand slam.
“It feels good to get a win. That was a good team that we beat. We really wanted to finish the game and move on to the next round. Hopefully, we get to build on this win heading into the semifinals,” said Brownlee.
For NorthPort on the other hand, they have their own version of “Never-Say-Die” spirit as they toppled the top-seeded NLEX Road Warriors in the quarterfinals round that carried a twice-to-beat incentive.
They made Asi Taulava recalled how they got eliminated by Ginebra in his first season as a pro many moons ago.
During that match, he unleashed his “Bulldozer”, Christian Standhardinger where he logged 61 minutes and almost tied Kerby Raymundo for most minutes played in a single game.
Apart from C-Stan, Michael Qualls also registered more than an hour of playing time while Sean Anthony had 47 minutes.
With more than two weeks of rest, the three-headed-monster of the Batang Pier are most likely well-rested plus the winning momentum gained by Standhardinger in the just concluded 2019 Southeast Asian Games where they won the gold medal is also a plus.
