Ginebra follows up its comeback win over erstwhile unbeaten Magnolia with another resounding victory behind Justin Brownlee

MANILA, Philippines – Barangay Ginebra dominated from start to finish and handed Terrafirma its 23rd straight loss following a 111-90 blowout in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Araneta Coliseum on Friday, October 28.

Justin Brownlee churned out a triple-double of 23 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists to go with 2 blocks as the Gin Kings followed up their comeback win over erstwhile unbeaten Magnolia with another resounding victory.

Brownlee and Christian Standhardinger set the tone in the romp by combining for 18 points to help Ginebra mount a 27-19 first-quarter lead and the Gin Kings ran roughshod over the hapless Dyip the rest of the way.

Standhardinger finished with 19 points and 7 rebounds, while Japeth Aguilar chalked up 13 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 steals as Ginebra improved to 4-2.

The Gin Kings had plenty of heroes, with Scottie Thompson putting up 12 points, 5 assists, and 2 steals, Jamie Malonzo netting 11 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 steals, and Jeremiah Gray posting 10 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 blocks.

While Ginebra spread the wealth, only three players scored in double figures for Terrafirma in the lopsided loss that saw it get buried by as deep as 30 points.

Eric Camson fired 21 points, while Joshua Munzon and Juami Tiongson chimed in 16 points each as the Dyip badly missed the usual production of import Lester Prosper.

Prosper, who had a pair of 40-point games to start the conference, got limited to single digits for the first time in the tournament after recording just 7 points on top of 8 rebounds and 2 blocks.

Aldrech Ramos added 9 points for the Dyip, who remained at the bottom of the standings at 0-7.
