Ginebra looks to stay unbeaten in match vs. Phoenix

·1 min read

The Barangay Ginebra Kings eye their fourth straight win when they tangle with a Phoenix Super LPG team that is looking to bounce back in the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup on Wednesday at the AUF Sports Arena in Pampanga.

Gametime is at 6:45 p.m. following the opening game between NorthPort and NLEX.

The Kings are eying a 4-0 win-loss mark that would place them alongside early leader TNT. Ginebra head coach Tim Cone knows the job will not be easy as he noted that Phoenix is one of the best teams in the “bubble” so far.

"Outside of TNT they really look like the best team," said Cone of the Fuel Masters.

"They're a complete team, well-coached," he added.

Phoenix though, is looking to atone for its 110-91 loss to TNT last Monday that dropped them to 2-1 this season. Phoenix head coach Topex Robinson said he is opting to look at the positive things that he and the team could take from that loss.

"Unang-una, it kept us grounded," Robinson was quoted as saying on the league’s official website.

"Also, nakita namin the team we could become," added Robinson. "We played TNT, one of the top teams along with Ginebra. We've learned we need to bring in our A-game for 48 minutes for us to have a chance to compete." (JNP)
