Barangay Ginebra leades 83-62 witn 2:59 left. Sol Mercado has already scored 21 points.
The Star Hotshots will take on the Barangay Ginebra Kings on Sunday, February 19, start time at 6:30 PM Philippine Standard Time, at the Araneta Coliseum in Game 6 of the best-of-seven semifinals of the PBA Philippine Cup.
Star has a chance of closing out the series as they are up 3-2 after dismantling Ginebra, 89-80, on Friday. Surely, Star doesn’t want to have a Game 7 that they want to be victorious.
Paul Lee has been playing with determination throughout the series so far as well as Allein Maliksi as they continually bringing big problems against the defense of Ginebra. Both of them are navigating through the defense of the Kings with such aggressiveness in the offense.
Because the series has been physical, Marc Pingris has found his way in the defense against the bigmen of Ginebra. Rafi Reavis is also contributing to master the Hotshots’ defense.
With the experience of coach Tim Cone in leading a team in designing schemes to win games, Ginebra will likely be in an all out offense as well as defense.
Veterans Jayjay Helterbrand and Mark Caguioa are expected to help the Kings offense to be stable. Japeth Aguilar will be the key in this game because of his ability to make shots from the outside and inside.
