Ginebra pulls away in fourth quarter to take down KIA
MANILA, Philippines - Barangay Ginebra San Miguel won their second straight game by taking down the KIA Carnival, 100-92, on Friday, February 13, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Both teams were tied at 70 heading into the fourth quarter. But it was all Ginebra from there, as Coach Ato Agustin’s boys did a good job denying post-entry passes to KIA import PJ Ramos, and in turn suffocated the offense of the Carnival.
Ginebra import Michael Dunigan sparked his club with 27 points, 11 rebounds, and 4 assists, while 2014 PBA Rookie of the Year Greg Slaughter pitched in 14 markers and 8 boards off the bench.
Despite battling illness this past week, Tenorio did a good job of running his team’s offense and finished with 11 points, 7 assists, and 5 rebounds.
Ramos continued filling up the stat sheet by registering 37 points and 22 rebounds on Friday.
