Barangay Ginebra finally gets a back to back win this conference after beating the Blackwater Elite on Friday at the Cuneta Astrodome.

Ginebra who's known for it's triangle offense system has proved their championship experience after giving the Elite a beating, leading by as much as 15 points. The Elite made a run who got the 3rd deadlock of the game after being down by 15points.

After Japeth's heart pounding exit caused by a muscle strain after a transition jam, the Ginebra squad continues to surge their way up giving the Elite no chance of getting back in the game with the help of their sophomore combo guard Scottie Thompson.

Thompson recorded another double-double performance with  13points, and an impressive 15 boards going over his conference average with 7 assists and two steals. In the absence of Aguilar, Jervy Cruz filled that big slot to man the paint and knocked those jumpers who contributed 16 points while Tenorio also contributed with 15points.

Sumang tried to save the Elite from getting an L in a Friday game contributing 20 points mostly from the perimeter while Mac Belo had a 16points outing.
