Brgy. Ginebra def Meralco, 92-88 [SF Game 1 | PBA S48 PH Cup | May 17, 2024]

Barangay Ginebra and Meralco are set to ignite a fierce battle in the PBA Philippine Cup best-of-seven semifinals, renewing their longstanding rivalry at the iconic Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

The clash between these two powerhouses promises to be nothing short of intense, with both teams hungry for victory and eager to advance in the postseason.

For Barangay Ginebra, the goal is to continue their impressive streak of winning at least one conference title in each of the past seven years.

On the other hand, Meralco is still in pursuit of their first championship in the prestigious PBA league, making this matchup all the more compelling.

The highly anticipated game is scheduled to tip-off at 7:30 p.m., with Barangay Ginebra looking to build on their dominant performance against the Magnolia Hotshots in the quarterfinals.

Meanwhile, Meralco enters the semifinals with momentum on their side after a convincing five-game winning streak in the elimination round.

As both teams gear up for what promises to be a grueling series, the stakes are higher than ever. Head coach Tim Cone of Barangay Ginebra is well aware of the formidable challenge that Meralco poses, making it crucial for his team to be at the top of their game.

Despite the tough competition, Barangay Ginebra holds a significant advantage over Meralco in playoff matchups, boasting four championship victories with the help of the dynamic Justin Brownlee in the Governors Cup.

While Meralco managed to secure a win in last year’s Philippine Cup quarterfinals, Barangay Ginebra remains a force to be reckoned with in the postseason.
