‘Short’ Justin Brownlee stands tall after leading Brgy. Ginebra past Manila Clasico rival Star

PBA Media Bureau

Barangay Ginebra import Justin Brownlee made sure the Gin Kings would send the message loud and clear. And he did it at the expense of touted Star counterpart Tony Mitchell.

The smallest import in the field listed at 6-foot-4 and 5-of-8 inches, Brownlee stood head and shoulders above the rest of the field as he powered Ginebra to an impressive 113-98 victory over Star on Sunday night in the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Mall of Asia Arena.

“I think this game definitely proved something to the league,” said the former St. John’s U standout who waxed hot at the turn as he fired away 21 of his game-high 30 points, some of them even over the outstretched arms of the taller Mitchell.

And without any doubt, the 28-year-old Brownlee fortified the Gin Kings’ faithful belief—and toned down their critics’ view—that he’s capable of helping them duplicate the title run they enjoyed in last season’s Governors Cup. – FOX Sports Asia
