WATCH: Technical foul called on Glen Rice Jr. for hanging onto the rim


Barangay Ginebra San Miguel escaped with a heart-stopping 106-103 victory over the TNT KaTropa on Friday night to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five PBA Governors’ Cup semifinal series.

The Gin Kings could wrap up the series with a win on Sunday night. If that happens they would set up a rematch with the Meralco Bolts, the team they beat in six games in last season’s Governors’ Cup.

Joe Devance led Ginebra with 20 points, four boards and three assists in over 36 minutes of play. Greg Slaughter finished with 18 markers and six caroms. Justin Brownlee and Scottie Thompson added 17 points apiece. Both had a double-double with Brownlee collecting 13 rebounds along with four assists while the high-leaping Thompson collected 12 boards and two dimes. LA Tenorio added 16 points, nine rebounds and eight assists.

The loss spoiled another monster game for Glen Rice Jr. who also racked up 20 rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in over 44 minutes of action. Jayson Castro had a near triple double of 17 points, nine boards and nine assists. Kelly Williams and Anthony Semerad added 10 markers apiece that all went for naught.
