Nagkataon lang? Ending SMB’s grandslam push not Ginebra’s goal
Barangay Ginebra San Miguel spoiled San Miguel’s bid to win a Grand Slam for the second time in three seasons.
This is after the Gin Kings eked out 100-97 win over the Beermen on Sunday night to make good use of their twice-to-beat advantage and head to the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup semifinals.
However, coach Tim Cone, the only PBA coach with two Grand Slams, said that it was never an intention of them to deny SMB of winning the feat.
For Cone, their primary goal was simple: take down San Miguel to get to the next round, which his wards did.
“A motivation for us was that San Miguel is a great team, and in front of us, and we had to get through them. And that was our motivation,” said the owner of 21 PBA championships and counting.
