Cone says TNT has a ‘good shot’ to win Comm’s Cup title


Barangay Ginebra coach Tim Cone conceded that TNT has a promising chance to capture the PBA Commissioner’s Cup championship after dethroning his squad in their semifinals series, 3-1.

“They played better than we did and they proved to be the better team than us,” Cone told reporters after the loss.

“I think they have a good shot at winning the championship and even going after San Miguel – if it would be San Miguel – it will be an interesting series.”

TNT will face the winner of the other semifinals pairing between San Miguel and Rain or Shine.

And for Cone, the KaTropa are capable of winning it all against either team.

The Beermen hold a 2-1 series lead and are one win away from setting a finals date with the KaTropa, but momentum is on the side of the Elasto Painters following their Game 3 triumph.

Meanwhile, Ginebra will turn its focus on reclaiming its crown in the Governors’ Cup.
