After a display of their own version of defensive approach, the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel had a great control of the game limiting the game to a low scoring match against the Star Hotshots. Known to be the master of the Triangle Offense, Tim Cone is also an expert of making adjustments before and during the game depending on what should be done and shouldn't be done.
The Star Hotshots admits that the excellent defense execution of Ginebra is the reason why they were below their average point production and had them go over their average turn overs. They average 13 turnovers per game but during their game on Wednesday, it increased to a number that they're also surprised about and ended up realizing that it was the tight defense of Ginebra that caused them to turn the ball over.
Players like Marc Pingris, Paul Lee and Maliksi admitted that Ginebra's defense has given them a hard time executing what they draw on the boards during their practice and had the rattled in getting people In their right places.
As expected, Ginebra coach Tim Cone said that the major adjustments have developed during their viewing and has taught them that if they were beaten by Star two times in a row, they can definitely do it to them as well. As the Star Hotshots continue their quest in finally getting another finals appearance they will have to figure out a way and an antidote to this Ginebra stops and provide necessary adjustments in game.
