MANILA, Philippines – Nearly a week after blowing out an old rival, Barangay Ginebra San Miguel ripped new team Kia, 87-55, in the 2015 PBA Philippine Cup Saturday at the Quezon Convention Center in Lucena, Quezon Province.

The Kings banked on a blistering 24-2 run in the second quarter to take a 43-22 lead at the half.

Ginebra never relented as it kept its foot on the gas pedal in the third quarter.

Jayjay Helterbrand made a 3-pointer before Chris Ellis knocked down a jumper that pushed the Kings’ lead to 27, 67-40, with a minute left in the third period.

Greg Slaughter and Japeth Aguilar couldn’t be contained as the Sorento just didn’t have the size upfront to stand a chance.

The 7-foot Slaughter and the 6-foot-9 forward Aguilar easily came away with 16 points each and combined for 23 rebounds and 23 points just in the first two quarters.

Both teams were coming off a win on opening day last Sunday with the Kings beating the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters, 101-81, and the Sorento rallying to stun the Blackwater Elite, 80-66.

Kia didn’t have its playing-coach Manny Pacquiao, who is currently in deep training for his upcoming title bout against Chris Algieri in November.

Kia came close to breaking the record for the all-time lowest output in a game held by Shell, which only scored 47 points in a loss to Mobiline back in 2000.
