WATCH: Brgy. Ginebra vs Meralco [Finals Game 1 | 2017 Governors’ Cup | October 13, 2017]

Barangay Ginebra San Miguel cruised past the Meralco Bolts, 102-87, to take Game 1 of the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup finals here at the Quezon Convention Center Friday, October 13.

Leading by just 6 points heading into the fourth quarter, 77-71, Ginebra rode on a 19-4 run, capped by back-to-back treys from Justin Brownlee and Kevin Ferrer, to break the game wide open and tally its largest lead of the game at 21, 96-75.

Meralco tried to rally back by scoring 8 straight points but the Gin Kings’ lead was too large to overcome.

“We hit our shots and we played well. I thought we controlled the game from pretty much start to finish,” said Ginebra coach Tim Cone.

Ginebra imposed its size as it had a 20-rebound advantage and outscored Meralco with 12 more points in the paint.
