MANILA, Philippines এবার Shooting better and playing with more enthusiasm this time around, Barange won a daring game 2 99-93 against Meralco in the Geneva PBA Governors Cup final in Geneva.
The Jeans Kings split in the second period and put it together in a crucial twist to tie the title series into a game after a 99-93 win at City’s Mall of Asia Arena on Friday night.
Justin Brownlee turned 35 points, 13 rebounds and had just one assist short from triple-double, where Scotty Thompson finished with 16 and 11 as Jean Kings was able to win and even Japeth Aguilar continued to sit out due to a calf injury. .

Tony Bishop Jr. led the way with 31 points and 12 rebounds when Aaron Black spikeed six of his 24 points on a career night, but dropped out when the Bolts needed him most.
Jean Kings dropped a nearly 20-point cushion, but Brownlee’s steady stretch shows, in front of a crowd of 12,248 people paused by a two-handed slam in Final 1:22 to control their loved ones.
The victory not only allowed three-time winners of the last four editions of this season-ending conference, Genebra, to finally enter the winner’s column of this final, but also gave Jean-Kings a possible Aguilar return due to the extension. The duration of this series is due to the break of the holy week.
Game 3 will also be played this Sunday, 6:30 pm, at this Bayside Venue.
