Ginebra and TNT clash in a likely playoff preview
In the penultimate day of the regular season, defending Governors' Cup Champions Brgy. Ginebra takes on rival TNT in a heavyweight showdown with both teams looking to lock up a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals.

The 2017 Governors' Cup playoffs may have started two playdates early.

While the elimination round of the season-ending PBA conference is still technically not over, all remaining games should have that awesome playoff feel already.

In the penultimate day of the regular season, defending Governors' Cup Champions Brgy. Ginebra takes on rival TNT in a heavyweight showdown with both teams looking to lock up a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals.

The Gin Kings (8-2) and the KaTropa (7-3) will square off at 5:15 p.m.

In the opening salvo at 3:00 p.m., Blackwater (5-5) takes on Rain or Shine (6-4) with the Elasto Painters looking to sneak into the top-4 where a playoff bonus is waiting.

However, the loser of this outing will most likely end up 8th. In the Elite's case, a loss means a sure spot at eight and an early date with the tournament's top seed. Not exactly ideal.

All games are live from the Big Dome Saturday.
