PBA: Pringle delivers in first playoff game for Ginebra
Pringle, acquired by the defending champion Gin Kings in a blockbuster trade earlier this conference, was Ginebra’s top local against Magnolia Saturday.

Brgy. Ginebra’s first win in Manila Clasico quarters of the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup meant that Stanley Pringle also got his first playoff win as a member of the barangay.

Pringle, acquired by the defending champion Gin Kings in a blockbuster trade earlier this conference, was Ginebra’s top local against Magnolia Saturday.

In 41 minutes, Stanley was good for 18 points to go along with four rebounds and a pair of assists.

“It feels good,” Pringle said of his first playoff win for Ginebra.

“The job’s not done so not really thinking much of it. Just on to the next game,” he added.

Now a true member of Ginebra, Pringle finally got to experience what it feels like to be on the barangay’s good side in the playoffs.

However, Stanley’s not getting carried away.

“It was cool. First game, I’m still locked in and focused on correcting my mistakes, the couple of turnovers I had. I’m not really thinking about anything else. Just worry about Game 2,” he said.

“Like I said, touch up on a couple of mistakes we did on defense, fix a couple of ratations. I can’t worry about any calls. I’m just focused on the game and Game 2,” Pringle added.
