Ginebra defense and freethrow shooting causes their first loss

It was almost an awesome game for Barangay Ginebra San Miguel, trailing with more than 10 points during the first three quarters, they fought their way back to the driver's seat at the fourth quarter and was able to force an overtime.

Justin Brownlee, the new sub import showed a very good game though one factors that affected their loss is the defense, in terms of field goals allowed. Free throw struggles also contributed a big part in their sorry loss against the Aces, shooting with almost 50% of their charities which could have made them maintain the scoring showdown.

During the 5min Overtime period, the Gin kings started the see-saw scoring battle but evwntually broke down on defense as they allowed the Aces to bank consecutive jumpshots and three pointers that gave the aces an 8 point lead. One key olayer stood out in the aces squad, it is Banchero who nailed a couple of threes that gave them the lead. Alaska and Ginebra are now tied at 1-1 win loss record in this PBA Governors' cup.

Ginebra will be back and try to win against the NLEX road warriors on the 27th at the araneta coliseum.
