Northport’s 34-point win against Barangay Ginebra in Game 1 of the 2019 PBA Governors’s Cup semifinals seems like a distant memory now.
The Gin Kings have since bounced back with a 35-point victory in Game 2 followed up by a 27-point decision in Game 3.
As such, Ginebra shoots for a return to the PBA Finals Friday as both teams meet again for the final game at the Big Dome for 2019.
The Gin Kings are simply rolling right now and a complete of a gentleman’s sweep will allow them to make their first Finals this season or since a title run in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
Meanwhile, the Batang Pier will look to win another knockout game this conference. Northport is certainly great at that, winning four straight do-or-die games on its way to the semis.
Tip off for Game 4 will be at 7:00 p.m. Friday at the Araneta Coliseum.
