Justin Brownlee is not one to play hero, but if Ginebra needs him to be one, he'll gladly do it.

The prolific import once again bailed the Gin Kings out Sunday night, converting the game-winning and-one play to lift the barangay past the Alaska Aces in a thriller.

Adding that one to his list of heroics, you might remember Game 6 of the 2016 Governors' Cup Finals against Meralco, Brownlee says he's just trying to do his job as an import playing in the PBA.

"I guess that's what I'm here for an an import. I think those are the moments where the import, not have to save the day or be a hero, but in those moments you have to be aggressive," Brownlee said as he finished with 34 points, 14 rebounds, six assists, three steals, and four blocks on top of his game winner.

"I understand that playing in this league as an import. In those moments, I just want to try and be aggressive and give my team the best opportunity to make a shot and win the game," he added.

Brownlee certainly needed to be aggressive on that final Ginebra play against his Alaska counterpart in Cory Jefferson.

Taking matters into his own hands with 19 seconds to go and Ginebra having no timeouts left, Brownlee had to get creative against the defense of Jefferson.

"Just try to create the best shot I can. Luckily, it was a layup so I took it and it went in," he said.

"That's really the only thing, we didn't have any timeouts so we just had to kinda freestyle that last possession," Brownlee added.
