Elite face biggest Philippine Cup test against Ginebra

If Blackwater is truly serious about being a true PBA contender, then passing a crucial test Friday is going to be big for the Elite. Fresh from winning their fifth game last week, their most in one conference and only two short of their entire total last season, the Elite battle Brgy. Ginebra San Miguel with a chance to go for a top 2 finish on the line. With one playoff bonus still up for grabs, a win by Blackwater certainly gives the Ever Bilena franchise an inside track especially since eight teams basically remain in contention to join defending champion San Miguel Beer at the top. Being one of those eight teams, the Gin Kings would like to further their own campaign by notching what would be their first winning streak for the season. Through eight games so far, the reigning Governors' Cup champions have stumbled to an even 4-4 mark but the team is coming off a huge win over rival Meralco back in Iloilo City. Gametime is set at 7:00 p.m. from the Cuneta Astrodome. Also one of the eight teams in contention for a top 2 spot, Rain or Shine takes on a free-falling Meralco Bolts in the first game at 4:15 p.m., looking to bounce back from a sorry loss at the hands of the Beermen. Armed with a 5-3 record, the Elasto Painters are out to make sure they maintain solo second place for at least a day while the Bolts simply want to arrest a six-game slide. The Bolts are currently tied for last place with a woeful 2-7 card. .....»»

Beermen clinch playoff bonus on their day off

As proof of their dominance so far in the Philippine cup, two-time defending champion San Miguel Beermen clinched a twice-to-beat advantage in the playoffs despite doing nothing Sunday. Following their seventh straight win just two days before to improve to a league-best 8-1, there was still a slight chance that the Beermen would actually fail to finish in the top two. But with both Alaska and TNT losing their respective games Sunday at the Big Dome, there's no doubt now about San Miguel heading to the playoffs to defend its title with some perks. Head statistician Fidel Mangonon III confirmed that the champs got the first of the two twice-to-beat advantages in the quarterfinals. As for the rest of the field, eight teams are currently separated by one game in the standings. Globalport and Rain or Shine currently share second place with identical 5-3 cards while Blackwater sits alone at fourth with a 5-4 record. TNT, Star, Ginebra, Phoenix, and Alaska are all stuck in the middle at 4-4 while Mahindra, NLEX, and Meralco complete the list with two wins each. Only eight teams advance in the Philippine Cup with the top-2 seeds earning a twice-to-beat advantage. Teams ranked 3rd-6th figure in a best-of-3 series and all ties are to be broken by the quotient system.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

Struggling Ginebra and Meralco battle in Iloilo City

PBA conferences sure aren't created equal. The first meeting of Ginebra and Meralco since their epic Governors' Cup Finals showdown should be epic but instead, with both teams struggling in the All-Filipino, the anticipation is tamed. Nevertheless, both squads should deliver a show in Iloilo City Saturday as the Gin Kings and the Bolts fight for their respective playoff lives in the 2017 Philippine Cup. Meralco is in a worse situation currently as a five-game losing skid, tied for the longest this conference, has crippled a once promising campaign for the Bolts. As it stands, Meralco sits at the bottom of the standings and the Bolts' climb to one of the lower playoff seeds starts agains their recent Finals tormentor. Speaking of said Finals tormentor, Ginebra hasn't fared that much better with the Gin Kings still struggling with an up-and-down conference after winning their first title in eight years. Ginebra has been stuck in the middle of the pack so far, failing to establish a winning streak halfway through and is just barely surviving with a 3-4 card. .....»»

Alaska battles Star as both make 2017 debuts

Following a long layoff, the Alaska Aces finally take the court for 2017 as the PBA resumes Wednesday at the Big Dome. After seeing action last Dec. 23, the Aces kickstart the new year against the Star Hotshots who are also making their debut for 2017. Finishing last year with even 3-3 records, the Aces and the Hotshots look to get back to their winning ways and further crowd the Philippine Cup standings. The Aces saw their three-game run snapped by TNT the last time out whil Star fell victim to Ginebra in the Christmas version of Manila Clasico. Gametime is set at 7:00 p.m. In the first game at 4:15 p.m., the Mahindra Floodbuster hope to start a winning streak for the first time this season as they battle the struggling Meralco Bolts. After starting with five straight defeats, Mahindra finally got on the board last Christmas by beating Blackwater while Meralco has suffered four consecutive setbacks so far for a 2-5 card. .....»»

Ginebra struggling with life without Justin Brownlee

Safe to say, Brgy. Ginebra is missing a familiar figure in the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup. A familiar figure that wears jersey no. 32 and goes by the name Justin Brownlee. Struggling to put together a winning streak in the All-Filipino after winning their first championship in eight years during the Governors' Cup, the Gin Kings are longing for their prolific import as they consistently stay inconsistent in the new PBA season. 'Maraming adjustments kasi unang-una, dati si Justin [Brownlee] nandun para sa amin,' Scottie Thompson said after Ginebra lost to San Miguel, dropping its record to 3-4. 'Ngayon wala na si Justin so kailangan namin mag-take over. Siguro yun yung medyo magulo sa team ngayon, yung role namin sa isa't-isa,' he added addressing the locals. Still below .500 with only four games left in the regular season, confidence hasn't left the Ginebra side entirely. Especially with the way they played the champs Sunday night, holding them down to only 72 points and marking three-time Most Valuable Player June Mar Fajardo to single digits. 'Actually, si coach Tim [Cone], sabi niya sa amin kung ganito lang lagi lalaruin namin, siguro darating din ang mga panalo. Okay naman siya, siguro kailangan lang namin yung finish sa bandang huli,' Thompson said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»
