MANILA, Philippines – All tied up.
A 2-1 advantage in the PBA Governors' Cup finals is up for grabs as Barangay Ginebra and Meralco tangle in the pivotal Game 3 of the best-of-seven series at the Araneta Coliseum on Sunday, January 12.
Momentum is on the side of the Bolts after they leveled the series at 1-1 with a hard-fought 104-102 win in Game 2 – snapping their four-game skid on the road and picking up their first victory in Lucena City.
But the Gin Kings have a lot of positives to build on for Game 3, especially after erasing a 19-point deficit and almost stealing Game 2.
Defending from long distance will be a point of emphasis for Ginebra as it allowed Meralco to make 16 triples in Game 2 – a franchise record in most three-pointers made in a finals match.
The Bolts, meanwhile, have to learn how to protect leads after blowing a combined 29 points in the first two games.
Game time is at 6:30 pm.
