Brownlee hopes semis exit fuels Ginebra in Gov’s Cup


After suffering a bitter end of their PBA Commissioner’s Cup reign, Justin Brownlee hopes it will fuel Barangay Ginebra in their quest to regain their hold of the Governors’ Cup.

TNT KaTropa dethroned the Gin Kings, 92-103, in Game Four of their best-of-five semifinal series at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum on Thursday.

This was the second time Ginebra lost a championship, the first being the 2018 Governors’ Cup, when they lost to the Magnolia Hotshots, also in the semis.

“Hopefully, this can give us some fuel going into the next conference,” said the three-time PBA champion. “We definitely didn’t want it to end like this, but, you know, things happen.

“We just gotta bounce back, see what we did wrong in this conference.”

The reigning Best Import is expected to return for the Gin Kings in the season-ending tilt.
