Brownlee, Pinto lead Ginebra comeback against Rain or Shine
BARANGAY Ginebra opened its title-retention bid with a 116-108 comeback over Rain or Shine on Sunday in the PBA Governors’ Cup at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
Justin Brownlee highlighted a triple double with 29 points to lead the Gin Kings to the impressive win, just three weeks after their Commissioner’s Cup title run.
The victory, however, was in no way easy as Rain or Shine kept the Gin Kings on the back foot and led by as many as nine points in the fourth quarter.
The Elasto Painters, though, were unable to finish the job as Brownlee and super-sub Nards Pinto led a late comeback before over 10,000 fans at the Big Dome.
