Streaking Brgy. Ginebra San Miguel took care of business before the team’s core takes part in the 2019 PBA All-Star festivities this coming weekend, dismantling the already-eliminated Meralco Bolts 86-76, Wednesday night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Kings extended their winning streak to 4 games and in the process locked-in on the 3rd seed by virtue of their 7-3 win-loss record. The win also made the team’s final game against NorthPort on April 3 no-bearing since they will still end up at No. 3 due to superior quotient over TNT and San Miguel even if they lose.
The winner of the Magnolia-NLEX match, also on April 3, gets the distinction of facing the Kings in a best-of-three series.
Despite the victory, Brgy. Ginebra coach Tim Cone aired his displeasure over the team’s performance in the first half.
“Just terrible in the first half. I was disappointed with how we started the game with our energy level and concentration. Our focus was just terrible. We made a big deal out of it at halftime,” said the league’s winning-est mentor.
