Can Justin Brownlee and the rest of the Gin Kings handle TNT this time around?
Fresh from denying the San Miguel Beermen at a shot for immortailty, Brgy. Ginebra continues its own quest for the title in the 2017 Governors' Cup semifinals Monday.
The defending champion Gin Kings start their best-of-5 showdown against TNT KaTropa, looking to get a headstart of making it back to the championship round.
After dominating the Beermen in the quarterfinals, scoring a 20-point victory, no. 3 Ginebra faces another tough test against no. 2 TNT in the Final Four.
The champs should be sharp and ready to go against TNT after getting almost a week of rest.
Meanwhile the KaTropa had to scrape past Rain or Shine in the quarterfinals before advancing to the next round.
However, TNT's dominant regular-season win against the Gin Kings is barely two weeks old and both teams faced each other in the semifinals of the Commissioner's Cup.
The KaTropa won, 3-1.
Tip off between TNT and Ginebra will be at 7:00 p.m. live from the Big Dome.
