Ginebra outlasts Rain or Shine in 3OT, clinches fourth spot

first_imgGinebra vs Rain or Shine. PBA IMAGESBarangay Ginebra had to trudge through three overtime periods to beat Rain or Shine, 100-92, and secure a spot in the quarterfinals of the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. Despite both teams ending up with identical 6-5 cards, the victory propelled the Gin Kings to the fourth seed in the standings because of quotient advantage and set up a best-of-three series against, incidentally, the fifth place Elasto Painters starting on Monday.ADVERTISEMENT Ginebra had parts in the conference where they played without Joe Devance, Sol Mercado, and Greg Slaughter due to injuries and the victory symbolized a huge sigh of relief for Ginebra. “This is the first good thing that happened to us all conference long and it took us a triple overtime game to do it against a team that really didn’t have much to play for,” said Cone. “We lost Joe and Sol earlier and they’re struggling to come back from their injuries, and we lost Greg in some key games.”Japeth Aguilar led Ginebra with 30 points, 17 boards, and five assists while LA Tenorio added 20 points. Beau Belga had 17 points, six boards, and five assists to lead the Elasto Painters while Gabe Norwood finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists.
