MANILA, Philippines – End or extend?
Barangay Ginebra seeks to wrap it up but Meralco aims to live another day when they lock horns in the pivotal Game 5 of the 2019-2020 PBA Governors' Cup finals at the Mall of Asia Arena on Friday, January 17.
After the first 3 games were decided by an average of 4.7 points, the Gin Kings seemed to have cracked the Bolts' code as they came away with a commanding 94-72 Game 4 win to seize a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.
Now, Ginebra is a win away from its third Governors' Cup championship in the last 4 seasons – all against Meralco.
But the Bolts are hell-bent on avoiding another finals heartbreak and coach Norman Black acknowledged they have to execute with perfection to accomplish that.
"With the way they're playing right now? We really have to play well to beat them," Black said of the Gin Kings.
Game time is at 7 pm.
