PBA: TNT facing elimination against champion Ginebra
At 4-6, TNT cannot afford to lose. If the KaTropa drop this one, it's see you next year. That's it.

The 2018 PBA Governors' Cup playoff cast will come down to one game.

TNT is on the clock and the KaTropa fight for their season as they take on defending two-time champion Brgy. Ginebra in the last elimination round game Sunday at the Big Dome.

At 4-6, TNT cannot afford to lose. If the KaTropa drop this one, it's see you next year. That's it.

However, even if the KaTropa beat the Gin Kings, TNT will still have to go through a playoff to make the quarterfinals.

A win by the KaTropa sets up a playoff for 8th against the Meralco Bolts, who won over San Miguel Beer Saturday.

For the Gin Kings, the champs still have something to play for as a victory officially locks up the no. 1 overall seed.

Tip off will be at 6:45 p.m. at the Araneta Coliseum.

In the first game at 4:30 p.m., Phoenix (7-3) and Blackwater (7-3) dispute the last twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals.
