Brgy. Ginebra is determined to secure a spot in the Finals as they go head-to-head against Meralco in a pivotal Game 6 of the PBA Philippine Cup semifinal series at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

With the series currently standing at 3-2 in favor of the Gin Kings, they are riding the wave of momentum following back-to-back victories in Games 4 and 5.

A win in Game 6 will propel Ginebra into the best-of-seven title series, where they will face off against the formidable San Miguel squad. Should they emerge victorious against Meralco, it will mark their third Finals appearance in the last four conferences and their first Philippine Cup Finals appearance since clinching the title in 2020.

Leading the charge for Ginebra is Christian Standhardinger, who showcased his scoring prowess in their previous game with an impressive stat line of 34 points, nine rebounds, and five assists.

Standhardinger credited the unwavering support of the Ginebra faithful for fueling their fourth-quarter comeback in Game 5.

On the other hand, Meralco must regroup quickly after their heartbreaking loss and focus on containing Standhardinger and limiting the playmaking abilities of Scottie Thompson.

The Bolts will rely on the experience and leadership of veterans Chris Banchero, Allein Maliksi, and Chris Newsome to rally their team and force a Game 7 showdown.

As the anticipation builds for this crucial Game 6 clash, both teams are gearing up for a fierce battle on the hardwood, with a Finals berth hanging in the balance.
