PBA: Ginebra starts 3-peat bid vs. NLEX
Winners of the last two titles, Ginebra clinched no. 1 Sunday in a win against TNT. The Gin Kings' 9-2 record led all teams in the elimination round.

Brgy. Ginebra's road to a three-peat starts now.

The Gin Kings open the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup playoffs against no. 8 NLEX Tuesday at the Big Dome.

Winners of the last two titles, Ginebra clinched no. 1 Sunday in a win against TNT. The Gin Kings' 9-2 record led all teams in the elimination round.

Ginebra will get right back at it in the main 7:00 p.m. game against the Road Warriors who made it to the next round with a 5-6 mark.

The Gin Kings hold a twice-to-beat advantage over NLEX.

Also holding a twice-to-beat edge is Magnolia and the no. 4 Hotshots take on no. 5 Blackwater in the other quarterfinals pairing of the day.

Magnolia (8-3) is coming off a Manila Clasico loss a week ago while the Elite (7-4) are fresh from a crucial loss to Phoenix two days ago.

Tip off is set for 4:30 p.m. at the Araneta Coliseum.
