After being postponed in December of 2021, only to be resumed in February of 2022, The PBA Governor’s Cup has finally ended, and the Barangay Ginebra Kings have taken the conference.
It only took six games for Ginebra to win the best of seven series over Meralco, and a large part of their success can be accredited to outstanding players Tenorio, Thompson, and Brownlee for the Kings.
Ginebra coach Tim Cone told reporters that he was shocked that his team was here after being so far down earlier in the tournament. At one point, the Kings needed a pivotal victory to qualify for the playoffs. Coach Cone stated that his team never gave up and “never say die.”
After a tight first half, the Ginebra Kings wore down Meralco in the third quarter and gained a five-point lead going into the fourth and final quarter. Scottie Thompson was awarded the Most Valuable Player with 15 points and three steals. Justin Brownlee also had 24 points, 16 rebounds, six assists, two blocks, and two steals. Ginebra played especially well in what led to a 103-92 victory for the Kings.
Despite Merlaco’s valiant efforts, they were no match for the Kings as they played harder and fought to win the series after having their backs against the wall and almost knocked out of the tournament earlier in the conference.
Betting On Philippine Sports Online
PH online sportsbooks have proven to be the best way to bet on Philippine sports as they can legally offer odds on domestic sporting events inside the country.
According to Philippine gambling laws, domestic sports betting services can only offer odds on events outside the country like NBA basketball or American football. This law causes many Filipino bettors to gamble online with offshore sports betting sites or with local bookies who will accept those wagers.
