Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Team News

After they split their initial four games, the Kings will enter of the biggest PBA derbies as underdogs. Ginebra have shown glimpses of what they are capable of, but their overall form has been very unstable.

After a horrific start, it looked like the Kings started to consolidate their star-studded roster with the wins over Meralco and Bay Arena, but another loss to the Fuelmasters rekindled the worries of their coach and fans.

Their last loss to the Phoenix Fuelmasters and inspired rookie Tyler Tio exposed all of their problems. With the game tied at the start of the final frame and up for grabs, the Kings failed to rise to the ocassion and allowed the win to slip away from them. 

Magnolia Hotshots Team News

At the moment, we feel every head coach in the league would want to be at the helm of Magnolia. The Hotshots are still undefeated and currently the hottest team in the league with an impeccable 5-0 record, which they mostly owe to their import player Nick Rakocevic.

PBA Commissioner´s Cup is all about imports and Magnolia have proven how important it is to have a reliable foreign source of points and rebounds. If the Serbian/American forward can continue averaging his stupendous numbers of 30 ppg and 19 rpg, the Hotshots will have a real chance of lifting their first silverware since their 2018 Governors´ Cup title.

Barangay Ginebra San Miguel vs. Magnolia Hotshots Prediction

It is true that the Hotshots are looking very strong, but besides playing against a heavily undermanned TNT side, they still haven´t faced a test against a top team with a full lineup.

It will take time for all the pieces to fall into place for the Kings. For now, they can find comfort in the fact they are the only team in the league that managed to beat Bay Area. In our opinion, it is only a matter of time before they gain some momentum and there is no better way to gain it than against the undefeated league leaders and their fierce rivals.
