Cone sees Ginebra-Meralco Finals series going to a Game 7


Ginebra coach Tim Cone believes that PBA Governors’ Cup Finals series of his Gin Kings and Meralco will go the distance despite winning the Best of 7 series oepener on Tuesday night.

The Gin Kings escape with a 91-87 victory over Meralco to take Game 1, thanks to Japeth Aguilar’s game-saving block on Meralco import Allen Durham late in hte game.

Cone said that if Ginebra wants to win the crown for the third time in four years, the Kings will have to go through the grinder in each and every game.

“I think this is just a taste of what we are going to see for the next six games,” said Cone.

“I think it’s going to be a pingpong affair, it will go back and forth. One game allows you to believe in your game plan and so you are not going to make too many adjustments to it.
