PBA: Champion Ginebra welcomes challenge of no. 1 TNT
Game 1 of this best-of-5 semis clash will tip off at 7:00 p.m. Friday at the Big Dome.

Playoff basketball continues in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

The semifinals of the mid-season joust starts Friday with defending champion Brgy. Ginebra welcoming the challenge of no. 1 TNT.

After sweeping Magnolia in Manila Clasico quarters, the Gin Kings are back in the semis to continue their quest for back-to-back titles and this time, the team brought star guard Stanley Pringle to the fold.

Pringle will definitel be needed as TNT is coming in strong with Jayson Castro leading the local attack.

However, the KaTropa’s semis return was made possible by Terrence Jones, arguably the league’s Best Import currently and the former Houtson Rocket will definitely be a handful for the Gin Kings who still do have Justin Brownlee, the PBA’s reigning Best Import.

Game 1 of this best-of-5 semis clash will tip off at 7:00 p.m. Friday at the Big Dome.
