PBA Governors’ Cup Finals: Will Game 6 turn out like last year?

Game 6 of the PBA Governors’ Cup Finals is pretty much set in the same fashion with that of last year. If one checks out the recap of the 2016 edition, the Ginebra Gin Kings come into the game holding a 3-2 advantage over the Meralco Bolts.

PBA: SMB-Kia trade will need ‘major’ revisions

TnT KaTropa will have to turn to their local crew if they are to live for another day. Needing to win game 4 to force a winner-take-all, TnT lost reinforcement Glen Rice Jr. right in the very first quarter after being thrown out for two technical fouls.
