PBA: Jones’ KaTropa test their mettle vs. champion Ginebra
Led by another super import in Terrence Jones, the KaTropa enter this 7:00 p.m. showdown tied for second place with a 4-1 mark after back-to-back lopsided wins over Phoenix and San Miguel.

Brgy. Ginebra’s title defense is off to a rough start.

The Gin Kings are 2-2 in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup and one might say that they’re pretty lucky to be at .500 early in the tournament.

Without super import Justin Brownlee doing the heavy lifting, Ginebra could be easily at 1-3 right now, or worse, winless after four games.

Still, Ginebra is a 2-2 and the champs can start correcting their early-conference struggles by picking up a nice win Wednesday at the Big Dome.

However, that’s harder than it sounds as the Gin Kings meet TNT, one of the hotter teams in the tournament so far.

Led by another super import in Terrence Jones, the KaTropa enter this 7:00 p.m. showdown tied for second place with a 4-1 mark after back-to-back lopsided wins over Phoenix and San Miguel.

Before TNT and Ginebra take the court though, Northport and Magnolia clash for the first 4:30 p.m. game.

The Batang Pier share second place with TNT while the Hotshots are at 0-1 entering the Wednesday.
