Brgy. Ginebra vs NLEX [January 29 | 6:45pm | Cuneta Astrodome]

With or without Japeth Aguilar, Barangay Ginebra is expected to go all out to nail its second shot at an outright quarterfinals entry versus NLEX in the penultimate play date of the PBA Philippine Cup elimination round at the Cuneta Astrodome Sunday.

Dropping their last game against the Phoenix Fuel Masters, the Gin Kings are hard pressed to bounce back to avoid complications of logjams at eighth place.

Ginebra takes its last shot at an outright quarters slot at 6:45 p.m. against an NLEX side looking to put a winning note on a short stint in this all-Filipino tourney.

Win or lose, the Road Warriors are to finish dead last in a tourney for the first time in franchise history. For coach Yeng Guiao, it’s his first in 16 years or since the 2000 Commissioner’s Cup with Red Bull. –
