Coaches Battle: Ginebra's Tim Cone vs SMB's Leo Austria, Who Wins?

Coach Tim Cone and Coach Leo Austria

I am shaking in my Boots. Believe it or not that phrase came from the winningest Coach in the PBA and the current coach of Barangay Ginebra. Tim Cone is up against Leo Austria a long time a long time coach and a champion coach as well.  There is a good reason to be shaking in his boots.

Tim Cone may have a slight edge of advantage in coaching having more championships under his belt but it does not assure him of a win against the tough SMB team.

We know it will be a big uphill challenge and we will continue to battle for the championship. We will find a way to compete and make them uncomfotable - Tim Cone.
Tim Cone knows the task ahead will not be easy. The SMB is the top team of the series and had looked seemingly unbeaten in the elimination round until the playoffs series in which they also showed resilience and ruggedness  against tough opponent.

The first thing that most teams and people would think playing against them is how to stop JunMar and we know that already but JunMar is not the only one. We have learned a lot from our semi-finals series - Leo Austria.
This will be tough and exciting. The battle of full house vs power house - Leo Austria 
Power House and Full House, indeed it's a good subtitle to this upcoming finals series. The smoke is almost clear and tonight the two teams will start another epic PBA finals series.
