Ginebra used a strong second half to send Mahindra to its fifth straight loss with an 89-70 drubbing in the PBA Philippine Cup Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Gin Kings reached the .500 mark with a 2-2 record while the Floodbuster continued their losing run and dropped to 0-5.
Mahindra, however, proved bothersome in the first half even taking a 27-26 lead late in the second quarter.
It was in the third quarter that Gin Kings laid enough foundation as they ended the period on a 10-2 run to take a 55-47 lead.
“The first half was a struggle, it took us a long time to get going, but in the second half we had positive things going and it gave us a chance to play the young guys,” said Ginebra head coach Tim Cone.
