Barangay Ginebra unleashed Greg Slaughter to slaughter, slit and slay the great giant that’s San Miguel Beer.
There were the heroics of Justin Brownlee, Scottie Thompson, LA Tenorio, Joe Devance and even Sol Mercado, Jeff Chan and, in some moments, veteran guard Mark Caguioa.
To Slaughter belong, though, the credit as the “difference-maker” in their title run in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup culminated by their 93-77 conquest of San Miguel before a boisterous crowd of over 20,000 at the MOA Arena in Pasay City Wednesday night.
Ginebra coach Tim Cone said Slaughter was the answer to June Mar Fajardo that solved the entire SMB puzzle.
“The thing that separates us from the other teams that allows us to challenge San Miguel Beer and June Mar Fajardo is Greg Slaughter,” Cone said.
