PBA Governors' Cup Finals Game 2: Will Ginebra continue their winning streak, or will TNT make a comeback?

The PBA Governors’ Cup Finals saw a spirited start as the Barangay Ginebra Kings seized an early advantage against the TNT Tropang Giga. The Kings played with unwavering determination and displayed an impressive performance, while the Tropa struggled to find their rhythm. The question now arises about how the Tropa will react in Game 2 and whether they can turn the tables around.

Scottie Thompson, the Kings’ player, acknowledged the importance of winning the first game and mentioned that having a strong mindset was crucial. He also emphasized that everyone on the team was aggressive and gave their best effort to secure the victory.


Coach Tim Cone is anticipating a tough fight from the Tropa in the next game, especially from their shooters, who could have performed better in the previous round. However, Cone acknowledged that the Tropa could have games where they shoot the lights out, which could be challenging to counter.

TNT coach Jojo Lastimosa acknowledged that his team needs to adjust and find their rhythm to make a comeback. The Tropa’s shooting performance was inferior to the Kings in Game 1, and they must improve their offensive game.

TNT also suffered injuries and fouls during the match, with Justin Chua limping out of the game in the initial minutes and Poy Erram being disqualified on six fouls. Lastimosa expressed concern about controlling Erram’s emotions as he is a vital player for their team.

The Kings understand they cannot rest easy, even with a lead. Thompson mentioned they must maintain focus and continue playing their best to win the series.

In conclusion, the PBA Governors’ Cup Finals started with an exciting and competitive match, and it will be interesting to see how the Tropa reacts in Game 2 to make a comeback.
