Make that three straight wins for Ginebra.

The crowd darlings pulled away late and came away with an 85-70 rout of GlobalPort as the Kings sustained their winning run in the 2016 Smart Bro PBA Philippine Cup on Wednesday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

With the Batang Pier firing blanks in a crucial stretch in the fourth, the Gin Kings broke off with an 11-0 spurt to take a 74-61 lead with 4:49 left in the game, with Scottie Thompson steering the ship and Greg Slaughter doing the damage in the paint.

Mark Caguioa led the squad with 22 points, four rebounds, and five steals even as Slaughter got his huge double-double of 22 markers and 21 rebounds.

“It’s a cliche, but it’s game-by-game. All three wins have been different. We went four out of five and every game has been different, every win has been different,” said coach Tim Cone. “It’s still a good thing for us because we’re still trying to learn as a unit how to play and win games. Every game is different and we’re just trying to learn as a unit, as a group, and see what works for us as different players step up in every game.”

LA Tenorio added 18 points in the win, as Ginebra improved to 4-3.

Jay Washington paced GlobalPort with a near double-double of 18 points and nine rebounds, as Stanley Pringle got 13 markers and nine boards.

The Scores:

GINEBRA 85 – Caguioa 22, Slaughter 22, Tenorio 18, Aguilar 8, Cruz 4, Devance 4, Ellis 4, Thompson 2, Helterbrand 1, Mercado 0, Salva 0.
GLOBALPORT 70 – Washington 18, Pringle 13, Romeo 10, Yeo 8, Mamaril 5, Jensen 4, Kramer 4, Maierhofer 4, Paniamogan 2, Sumang 2, Pena 0, Semerad 0.
