PBA: Ginebra manhandles woeful Terrafirma
MANILA, Philippines–Barangay Ginebra didn’t take a step back after its comeback against a fierce rival and added another chapter in Terrafirma’s ongoing nightmare with a 111-90 win in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Six players scored in double figures with import Justin Brownlee leading the way with 23 while adding 11 rebounds and 11 assists to produce a triple-double and Christian Standhardinger adding 19 as Ginebra climbed up to 4-2.

“This is what we called a ‘trap game’ because we had Magnolia and we will have San Miguel next,” said Cone, who last Sunday saw Ginebra rally from 15 down to complete a 103-97 defeat of Magnolia.
“So keeping our focus on Terrafirma was important to us. Now we can put our whole focus on San Miguel and see if we can get this momentum going.”
Ginebra and San Miguel are set to face on Nov. 6 in a battle between two of the favorites in the midseason tournament.
Dropping to 0-7, the Dyip suffered their 23rd consecutive loss that moved them six shy of equaling the futile mark established by the Blackwater Bossing last year.
Eric Camson finished with 21 points and Juami Tiongson added 16 in another lopsided setback for Terrafirma.

TERRAFIRMA 90 — Camson 21, Munzon 16, Tiongson 16, Ramos 9, Gomez de Liano 7, Prosper 7, Javelona 6, Cahilig 6, Mina 2, Cabagnot 0, Calvo 0, Gabayni 0, Alolino 0, Balagasay 0.
