PBA: Ginebra-TNT could help decide tight Best Import race
Justin Brownlee and Terrence Jones are without a doubt the two best reinforcements in the Commissioner’s Cup and everyone gets their wish granted as the two super import collide with a Finals stint on the line.

The best-of-5 semifinals series between defending champion Brgy. Ginebra and no. 1 TNT will not only decide who moves on to the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals, but it might as well decide who wins Best Import for the mid-season joust.

Justin Brownlee and Terrence Jones are without a doubt the two best reinforcements in the Commissioner’s Cup and everyone gets their wish granted as the two super import collide with a Finals stint on the line.

First is Brownlee, the league’s reigning Best Import and Ginebra’s savior.

Brownlee has somehow reached new heights this season, including one game where he posted a career-high 49 points. In the very next outing, he broke that with a nice 50-piece for a Ginebra win.

JB’s regular season numbers are incredible as per usual, leading the league with 35.9 points per game on 55 percent shooting. He also has 13.6 rebounds, 5.7 assists, 2.6 steals, and 2.2 blocks per outing.

Meanwhile, Terrrence Jones’ superior NBA talent has been evident all conference long, leading the KaTropa to a 10-1 record behind an incredible eight-game winning streak.

Jones and TNT also passed a tough Alaska test to make the semifinals to challenge the champion Gin Kings.

Terrence’s regular season numbers are no joke as well, averaging 33.7 points on 48 percent shooting on top of 16.1 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 1.5 steals, and 3.1 blocks per game.

He’s been a triple-double machine with three of them this conference so far.

Justin Brownlee vs. Terrence Jones in the playoffs will finally be a thing Friday as defending champion Ginebra and no. 1 TNT open the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup semifinals at the Big Dome.
