Barangay Ginebra went on a third-quarter tear to taint the unbeaten record of the NLEX Road Warriors, coming away with a 110-97 victory in their 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup clash on Saturday night.
With a very alive pro-Ginebra crowd filling up the Calasiao Sports Complex in Pangasinan, Ginebra did not disappoint as they ripped the game wide open in the third frame with a 36-23 explosion to end up with their third straight blowout victory.
Joe Devance kept the team afloat in the first two quarters where the two teams engaged in a more competitive battle, unloading 14 of his 23-point output that earned him the player of the game honors.
Justin Brownlee had an all-around game as he scattered 22 markers, 13 boards, along with six assists, four blocks and two steals.
Japeth Aguilar saw limited action but still contributed 10 points, six rebounds and one block before taking a flight to Lebanon for Gilas duty, while Greg Slaughter added 10 points, 11 caroms and two blocks off the bench.
