The Barangay Ginebra Kings will surely come out throwing their best punches so as not to let slip away a shot at being the top seed in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup playoffs.
They go for elims top honors as they tackle the Mahindra Floodbuster at the close of the preliminary round of the mid-season tourney at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Friday.
They were low-tier in the recent Philippine Cup but survived a treacherous climb to the title playoff versus eventual champ San Miguel Beer.
“It was a tough road,” Ginebra coach Tim Cone recalled.
“Top seeding doesn’t guarantee a championship but it gets you to a good road in the playoffs,” said Cone on what’s at stake for them in their 7 p.m. tussle with the Floodbuster.
Mahindra sets out for the match looking to end its conference on a winning note.
