MANILA, Philippines – Barangay Ginebra shoots for a 2-0 lead while San Miguel seeks to equalize when they meet in Game 2 of the best-of-7 finals in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Sunday, July 29, at the Araneta Coliseum.
The Gin Kings look to bank on the momentum they gained from their rousing 127-99 Game 1 win on Friday, July 27, while the Beermen aim to redeem themselves from their worst loss of the conference.
Focus will be on Justin Brownlee after he lifted Ginebra with 42 points on a 17-of-19 shooting to go with 9 assists, 7 rebounds and two blocks. (READ: LA Tenorio all praise for red-hot Brownlee)
