It’s been a series of blowouts in the 2019 PBA Goverors’ Cup semifinals, especially on the Ginebra-Northport side of things.
The no. 8 Batang Pier weer on the board first, looking mighty impressive with a 34-point victory in Game 1.
Just two days later though, the no. 4 Gin Kings came back and literally did one better, dominating Northport for a 35-point decision.
Now tied at one game each, battle for series lead is the theme of Game 3 Wednesday back at tha Araneta Coliseum.
Whether Game 3 is another blowout or not doesn’t matter, the one who can get a 2-1 lead in a best-of-5 can feel slightly better, knowing they’re one step away from making the Finals.
Tip off for the pivotal Game 3 will be at 7:00 p.m. live from the Big Dome.
