Ginebra kept its flickering hopes in the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup semifinals alive with a rousing 125-101 blowout of TNT in Game 3 Thursday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Justin Brownlee anchored the Gin Kings rescue mission as he scattered 31 points, on a 4-of-8 shooting from threes, alongside 11 rebounds, four blocks, three steals, and two assists for the top-seed.
The KaTropa failed to complete the series sweep as import Joshua Smith played subpar on his nine minutes on the floor.
The burly reinforcement complained pain on his right foot which was earlier reported as an injured right pinkie caused by his shoe, prompting him to leave the game with the fourth quarter still yet to be played. He finished with four points and seven rebounds in the game.
