Ginebra defeats B-Meg

Philippine Basketball Association 36th Season
2011 Governors Cup
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.

Next Game: B-Meg vs Petron

B-Meg Llamados vs Petron Blaze Boosters
Wednesday, July 6, 7:45pm, Araneta Coliseum

Current Standing:
B-Meg Llamados: 3 wins, 2 losses (tied for 2nd place)
Petron Blaze Boosters: 3 wins, 2 losses (tied for 2nd place)

Injury Update:
Rafi Reavis was activated and played 12 minutes in the game against TNT and might have more playing time in their next games but Jonas Villanueva maybe out of the season due to a tear on MCL and ACL. Kerby Raymundo may still play this conference but it will be at the latter part if B-Meg advances in the next round. While Petron will be missing Jay Washington.

Import Matchup:
Darnell Hinson vs Jeremy Wise, we hope Hinson will continue to play well for the Llamados and may guard Wise.

Prediction:
This will be a close game with B-Meg winning by 4 points, James Yap will continue to play well but the remaining Point Guards, Roger Yap and Pong Escobal must also contribute for B-Meg.
