Barangay Ginebra beat Meralco 99-93 in Game 2 of the 2021 PBA Governors' Cup Finals, scoring more and playing with more zeal this time. 


After a 99-93 triumph at Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City on Friday night, the Gin Kings raced away in the second quarter and held on at the very crucial moment to even the series at one game straight. 


As Ginebra won despite Japeth Aguilar's continuing absence because to a calf injury, Justin Brownlee had 35 points, 13 rebounds, and was one assist from a triple-double while Scottie Thompson had 16 and 11 points. 


Tony Bishop Jr. carried the team with 31 points and 12 rebounds, and Aaron Black had a record night with 24 points and six assists, but he fizzled precisely when the Bolts needed him most. 


Ginebra almost surrendered a 20-point lead, but Brownlee's stoic performance late in games, highlighted by a two-handed dunk in the last 1:22, put the audience darlings in charge in front of 12,248. 


The triumph not only gave Ginebra, the three-time winners of the last four editions of this season-ending conference, an opportunity to win this finalé for the first time, but it also gave them time to prepare for a potential Aguilar return due to the series' extended duration due to the Holy Week break. 


Game 3 will take place at this bayside location on Sunday, April 10 at 6:30 p.m.
