PBA: Ginebra is comfortable with close games and it showed
With the Finals moving on from the blowouts, Ginebra found it comfortable to play in an ultra tense situation in the game's dying minutes.

For the first time in these PBA Finals, the fourth quarter was meaningful.

And as a close game was finally played, the defending champions folded under pressure and the challengers were the ones who had superior composure.

Ginebra beat San Miguel in a wild one Sunday, taking a 3-2 lead in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup Finals.

With the Finals moving on from the blowouts, Ginebra found it comfortable to play in an ultra tense situation in the game's dying minutes.

The Gin Kings came through in the clutch and are now one win away from the title.

"We expected that every game will be like that this far in the series but you know, it hasn't been but we're okay with the game going down like that," import Justin Brownlee said.

"We feel comfortable in those types of situations," he added.

As Ginebra goes for the kill in Game 6, Brownlee expects it to be tough.

But the PBA's Best Import also expects his team to come out hard like there's no tomorrow.

"We have to play the game of our lives," Brownlee said.

"It's going to be tough. Hopefully on Wednesday we could close it out," he added.
