BINAN, LAGUNA --- With Ginebra finally playing one version of Triple Towers, someone was bound to get open on offense.
Friday against Blackwater at the Alonte Sports Arena here, it was Kevin Ferrer.
The former UST Growling Tiger made it count.
Ferrer led the Gin Kings in scoring in a 105-91 win over the Elite, going for 21 points and connecting on five triples. For good measure, he also had five rebounds and three assists.
"Sobrang open lang talaga ako," Ferrer said.
"Tapos ine-encourage akong tumira ng tumira, shoot man o hindi, dun kasi darating yung kumpyansa," he added.
After suffering back-to-back defeats to start the Commissioner's Cup, the Gin Kings as a whole should regain some of their swagger back after scoring an emphatic first win.
"Syempre kailangan namin manalo ngayon, pag natalo kami sobrang hirap na umangat," Ferrer said.
The return of Greg Slaughter only puts Ginebra in better position moving forward as well.
It should also mean more shots for the Gin Kings' shooters.
"Pag si Greg nakakatanggap sa loob, kami naka-set ng posisyon," Ferrer said. "Nakukuha namin rhythm namin sa labas."
