Northport’s dream run in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup has extended all the way to the semifinals.

The no. 8 Batang Pier are just rolling right now, with a five-game winning streak and sky-high confidence.

Their latest win was masterful, a 34-point beatdown of Barangay Ginebra to start the semifinals.

Northport looks to follow that up with a Game 2 win Monday and if they do, the Batang Pier will be in serious contention as a 2-0 lead in a best-of-5 series is pretty hard to come back from.

That’s exactly why the Gin Kings are already in must-win mode. Never Say Die can only handle so much.

Game 2 of the Northport-Ginebra series will tip off at 7:00 p.m. Monday live from the Big Dome.
