PBA: Ginebra beats Magnolia in Game 1 of Manila Clasico quarters

Manila Clasico Game 1 goes to Ginebra. The defending champion Gin Kings managed to hold off Magnolia Saturday in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals, taking an 85-79 win at the MOA Arena. Tied at 75 late in the fourth quarter, it was Ginebra that made the shots that count for an early 1-0 lead in the best-of-3 series. The usual suspects were productive for the Gin Kings, including 20 points from import Justin Brownlee and another 18 from Stanley Pringle, who made his playoff debut as a member of the barangay. Game 2 is set Tuesday at the Big Dome.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Ginebra still has to “outplay” Magnolia to win Manila Clasico

Brgy. Ginebra took a 1-0 lead in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals Saturday. Holding on for a close 85-79 victory, the defending champion Gin Kings are one win away from a return trip to the semifinals to continue their quest for back-to-back titles. However, Ginebra feels like it didn’t necessarily give a winning performance in Game 1 against the Hotshots. Head coach Tim Cone certainly thinks so. “As much as we won, it feels like a loss because we weren’t able to play the game we wanted to play at all,” he said. “We got frustrated a lot throughout the game and our guys cannot afford to get frustrated. We got to keep our focus on each possession. We got distracted at times. But, again, credit their defense,” Cone added. In order not to absorb a third straight elimination at the hands of Magnolia, Cone says the Gin Kings need to play a whole lot better starting with Game 2 oon Tuesday. Ginebra certainly can’t afford playing the Hotshots’ slow game. “They had to make it kind of an ugly game. They kind of had to muddy it up and they did. They did muddy it up. Again, it was really great discipline at their part and as I said, it really feels like a loss more than a game,” Cone said. “I thought they outplayed us tonight. We ended up winning the game but they outplayed us. We can’t let them outplay us on Tuesday,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Pringle delivers in first playoff game for Ginebra

Brgy. Ginebra’s first win in Manila Clasico quarters of the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup meant that Stanley Pringle also got his first playoff win as a member of the barangay. Pringle, acquired by the defending champion Gin Kings in a blockbuster trade earlier this conference, was Ginebra’s top local against Magnolia Saturday. In 41 minutes, Stanley was good for 18 points to go along with four rebounds and a pair of assists. “It feels good,” Pringle said of his first playoff win for Ginebra. “The job’s not done so not really thinking much of it. Just on to the next game,” he added. Now a true member of Ginebra, Pringle finally got to experience what it feels like to be on the barangay’s good side in the playoffs. However, Stanley’s not getting carried away. “It was cool. First game, I’m still locked in and focused on correcting my mistakes, the couple of turnovers I had. I’m not really thinking about anything else. Just worry about Game 2,” he said. “Like I said, touch up on a couple of mistakes we did on defense, fix a couple of ratations. I can’t worry about any calls. I’m just focused on the game and Game 2,” Pringle added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
