PBA: Slaughter hopeful that Ginebra hasn't reached its peak
The Gin Kings certainly look like they're peaking at the most opportune time but Greg Slaughter is hoping that's not the case just yet.

After a 1-5 start, Brgy. Ginebra has won six straight games and is on the verge of advancing to the semifinals of the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup.

The Gin Kings certainly look like they're peaking at the most opportune time but Greg Slaughter is hoping that's not the case just yet.

For now, Ginebra's focus is solely on its best-of-3 quarterfinals series against rival Meralco. The Gin Kings currently lead the series, 1-0, and hopefully, that's not their peak in this tournament.

"Who knows? It’s just our first game. It’s just our goal to win this game cause you don’t want to be behind in a best-of-three," Slaughter said.

"Hopefully we keep the momentum going and hopefully we haven’t reached our peak yet," he added.

With him on the floor, Ginebra's frontline managed to hold Meralco import Arinze Onuaku to just 12 points.

Slaughter, who finished with 13 markers for the game, is kind of relieved to contain Onuaku the way they did in Game 1.

"He’s a handful. He’s a big guy and experienced. You just got to find ways to beat him cause he’s such a big guy, you can’t beat him with brute force," Slaughter said of the former Best Import from the Bolts.

"Fortunately sometimes I was able to run the floor on him and got some easy dunks," he added.
