For Barangay Ginebra, Japeth Aguilar and Scottie Thompson returning healthy from national duty is a relief.
“Our injury list is long at this point — Greg Slaughter, Joe Devance, Sol Mercado, Jervy Cruz, Julian Sargent, Raymond Aguilar, Art dela Cruz. Thankfully, Japeth and Scottie came back to us healthy and ready to go,” Cone also said.
“We will lean on them to push us through these back-to-back games. When it gets tough, the tough gets going. We’ll see if we can live up to that,” he added.
