PBA IMAGESJustin Brownlee has fond memories of Game 6 of last season’s Governors’ Cup Finals, but he knows that it’s already a thing of the past.“I definitely remember it,” Brownlee said, looking back on the shot that downed Meralco and ended Ginebra’s eight-year title drought. “But I’m just trying to move on from it.”ADVERTISEMENT “Like coach said, the guy is a beast. I got to give it to him, he’s just been a beast and he’s been unstoppable. That’s why he’s in the finals and his team. I’m looking forward to it, hopefully we can slow him down,” he said.But it’s not just Durham alone, as the rest of the Bolts are raring to get their redemption against the Gin Kings.“If I was with that team, I would want to face Ginebra in the Finals, too,” he said, understanding the sentiments of a lot of Meralco players, particularly Jared Dillinger, who’s been vocal of his desire to have the rematch. “That just shows his fight and you know, maybe get some revenge. I would be the same way if I was him so I respect that.”Game 1 of the best-of-7 Finals series kicks off on Friday at Quezon Convention Center in Lucena.ADVERTISEMENT Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight Read Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
