Brgy. Ginebra starts busy weekend with Friday game against vastly-improved Blackwater

PBA Media Bureau

Governors Cup titlist Barangay Ginebra braces for a rough weekend in the PBA Philippine Cup as it plays two tough opponents, starting with Blackwater Friday at the Cuneta Astrodome then Phoenix Petroleum Sunday over at the Philsports Arena.

“Big weekend for us,” said coach Tim Cone of their back-to-back matches which could clear the picture where the Gin Kings are headed to in the all-Filipino tourney.

The Kings are tottering on the fringes of the Magic Eight at 4-4 while the Elite and the Fuel Masters have both placed a foot on the quarterfinals with their identical 5-4 slates.

In Blackwater, the Kings face foes coming from a confidence-boosting 103-100 triumph over the Alaska Milk Aces.

Their upset of the Aces has made the Elite more optimistic not just of a playoff entry but a top finish in the one-round-robin elims phase.

A win will get Ginebra to either joint third or joint fourth. –
