Tip off for the Clasico is at 6:45 p.m. Sunday live at the Big Dome.
The top of the team standings in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup is taking shape and the time might actually be running out for the teams in the middle to make a play for a possible top-4 finish.
All is not lost however and teams like the defending champion Magnolia Hotshots can start a mid-conference run Sunday by taking down rival Ginebra for a much-anticipated Manila Clasico clash.
The Hotshots are at 3-3 following back-to-bacl losses with import Romeo Travis hurt with ankle issues. Things are not exaclty looking bright but Magnolia can pick up a signature win over Ginebra, and that’s always a good thing.
The Gin Kings also struggled to start but they got a big win last week over San Miguel and their 2-2 mark can look a whole lot better by making it 2/2 against their sister teams.
Tip off for the Clasico is at 6:45 p.m. Sunday live at the Big Dome right after the 4:30 p.m. clash of the Beermen (4-1) and the Columbian Dyip (3-3).
