PBA: Ginebra meets struggling Meralco in Govs' Cup
The Gin Kings are no. 1 with a near-perfect 6-1 record while the Bolts are not exactly sharp as they would have liked at this time of the year, stumbling to a 1-4 mark with four straight losses.

The latest Ginebra-Meralco showdown sure looks different.

Reigning two-time champion and current league-leader Brgy. Ginebra meets Meralco for the first time in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup Sunday.

The Gin Kings are no. 1 with a near-perfect 6-1 record while the Bolts are not exactly sharp as they would have liked at this time of the year, stumbling to a 1-4 mark with four straight losses.

Of course, despite their respective record, Ginebra-Meralco games in the Governors' Cup are always expected to pack some fireworks thanks to all the history.

The two teams met in the last two Finals, with Ginebra winning in six games in 2016 thanks to "The Shot." The Gin Kings won again in 2017 after seven grueling games.

Tip off for the latest installment will be at 6:45 p.m. at the Sta. Rosa Multi-purpose Complex in Laguna.

In the first game at 4:30 p.m., Blackwater (5-1) takes on winless Rain or Shine (0-3).
