PBA: Brownlee after saving Ginebra again: We'll be all right
Ginebra's super import scored a career-high tying 46 points, 18 in a pivotal third quarter run, to will the two-time champion Gin Kings back from the dead in Manila Clasico.

Justin Brownlee was the personification of the "Never Say Die" attitude Wednesday for Game 3 of the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup semifinals.

Ginebra's super import scored a career-high tying 46 points, 18 in a pivotal third quarter run, to will the two-time champion Gin Kings back from the dead in Manila Clasico.

Brownlee almost single-handedly brought Ginebra back from an 18-point second half deficit and the Gin Kings' bid for a three-peat is still going.

"I don't know man," Brownlee said, almost in disbelief of his own superhuman effort to save the series for Ginebra.

"That's Never Say Die attitude. The fans, they got into the game and they gave us a boost of energy. We just wanted to keep it going, it's fortunate that we got the win, that's the most important thing," he added.

Thins were not looking pretty for Ginebra at halftime.

Mark Barroca scored 12 points to spark a late rally for Magnolia late in the second period and the Hotshots took full control of the game.

Brownlee was the only one keeping Ginebra at that point, scoring 19 at the break. At the end of the third period and another 18 points later, he brought Ginebra back.

To cap it all off, it appeared that Brownlee had a hand in Paul Lee's game-winning triple for the Hotshots.

"We just find out if we stick together and stay positive," Brownlee said.

"I think, we'll be all right. We'll overcome any adversity we have," he added.
