James Yap loves beating Brgy. Ginebra.

Sunday is not one of those nights.

The Gin Kings demolished Yap's Rain or Shine Elasto Painters to open the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup semifinals, scoring a convincing 102-89 decision.

As his no. 1 ROS is all of a sudden down in the short best-of-5, Yap will give this night to Ginebra and its fans.

"Masarap naman talaga maglaro pag maraming tao. Alam mo naman Ginebra yan eh. Masaya," Yap said on facing an old rival.

"I’m sure masaya lahat ng Ginebra fans ngayon," he added.

James Yap has had many fierce battles with Ginebra before so you already know he'll be eager to bounce back in Game 2.

Yap had a nice 15 points and eight rebounds for ROS in the series opener but obviously, that was not enought.

James and the rest of the Elasto Painters have some major adjustments to do in time for Game 2.

"Bawi na lang kami next game," Yap said.

"Kailangan yung defense namin, yun ang i-adjust namin. Siguro i-execute pa namin yung play namin. Kailangan ma-execute, minsan nagkakanya-kanya kami eh. So medyo walang flow. Yung flow ng offense namin, di masyadong maganda. Sana next game, okay na," he added.
