B-Meg Llamados vs Barangay Ginebra Kings
Ginebra defeats B-Meg, 89-85
The Barangay Ginebra Kings won for the 2nd straight time without an import, this time beating the B-Meg Llamados, 89-85. 5 players scored in double figures for Ginebra led by Ronald Tubid with 20 points and 6 rebounds.
B-Meg import Darnell Hinson bounced back from a 5-point performance the last game scoring 21 points and also contributed 9 rebounds and 5 assists but it was not enough to keep B-Meg from losing its second straight game and slid down the standings in the current PBA Governors Cup.
James Yap and Peter June Simon both scored 14 points (Simon scored 9 points in the 4th quarter) but Yap was only 3 out of 11 from the 2-point range. Marc Pingris continued with his great play with 11 points and 9 boards but newcomer Joe Devance disappeared from this game scoring only 8 points and got just 4 rebounds.
The Llamados had a chance to at least tie the game in the closing minutes but Rafi Reavis missed from point blank range and another shot missed by Joe Devance. James Yap who has made a lot of big shots in his career was covered well by Ginebra and was not able to touch the ball much in the end game.
Willie Miller and JC Intal did not play for BGK due to injuries while B-Meg is still missing the services of Kerby Raymundo, Rico Maierhofer and Jonas Villanueva.
