After back-to-back escape acts, Barangay Ginebra seeks to get going and shoot above the .500 mark as the Gin Kings tangle with the Terrafirma Dyip in the PBA on Tour at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig Friday.
Typical of the Ginebra team, the Kings are on the run towards the end of the competition presented by Arena Plus and sponsored by Bingo Plus.
Interim coach Richard del Rosario and his troops target a fourth win against three losses as they take on coach Johnedel Cardel and his chargers in the 7:30 p.m. mainer of a Friday bill.
The Dyip are slightly behind the Kings at 3-4, having lost their last outing against the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters, 92-104.
Before that, Juanmi Tiongson and his teammates had solid back-to-back wins over NLEX, 110-106, and Meralco, 107-102.
The Dyip have been in the thick of the fight in this preseason event with huge lift from Tiongson, Isaac Go, Eric Camson and JP Calvo.
The Kings, meanwhile, are now in chase of the front runners as their second stringers and apprentices have seemingly forged a bond and are now more comfortable playing with one another.
