San Mig guns for fourth straight vs Ginebra
MANILA, Philippines – The San Mig Coffee Mixers look to win their fourth straight game when they take on the slumping Barangay Ginebra Kings in the PBA Commissioner's Cup Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.
After a slow start to the conference, defending champions San Mig have turned things around thanks to the return of reigning Best Import Denzel Bowles.
The Mixers have beaten Talk 'N Text, GlobalPort and given Alaska their first loss of the season, but head coach Tim Cone remains wary of the Gin Kings.
"Ginebra is very desperate and very hungry for a win," he told the league website. "That makes them doubly dangerous."
"We know we have to be very sharp to beat them."
The crowd favorites Gin Kings have won only one game against five losses this conference, and are coming off a close 93-96 setback to Rain or Shine.
Meanwhile, the Coffee Mixers (3-3) can go past .500 for the first time this season and strengthen their push for a playoff spot with a victory tonight.
