Ginebra now awaits the winner of the knockout game between TNT and Rain or Shine.
“Looking ahead, TNT will handle just with ease and Rain or Shine is playing incredible basketball. It would be a tough game on Friday,” Cone added.
The multi-titled head coach, however, wants to ensure that his players stay focused after beating a stacked San Miguel squad:
“We’re going to send a message in the locker room that this was great, this was fine, we did a good job, but the job is not finished yet. We have to move forward and get ready for the next game. It almost has a championship feel to it; beating San Miguel is almost like winning a championship. But we gotta make sure we get over that so we don’t have a “championship hangover” in the next series.” GMA News
