Brownlee hits buzzer-beating shot, Ginebra wins PBA title - Oct 19, 2016

Brownlee
Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Kings import Justin Brownlee (197-F-88, college: St.John's) scored a buzzer-beating three-pointer that edged the Meralco Bolts, 91-88, in dramatic fashion to win the best-of-seven championship series for the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Governors Cup crown in front of 22,000-plus spectators at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last Wednesday night (October 19, Manila time).

The victory ended an eight-year title drought for the Kings, who last won in the 2008 Fiesta Conference.

A big uproar suddenly erupted when Brownlee took the matters in his own hands and swished a trey way beyond the top of the key with the defense of Bolts' counterpart Allen Durham (198-F/C-88, college: Grace Bible) all over him, coming from a timeout with the score knotted at 88-all.

Brownlee finished his heroics with a game-high 31 points, 12 in the final period where he was engaged in a basket-for-basket exchange with Meralco's Durham, Cliff Hodge (196-PF-88, college: Hawaii-Pacific) and Chris Newsome (187-G, college: N.Mexico Highlands) in the final minutes of the game.

LA Tenorio (177-PG-84), who was awarded the Finals Most Valuable Player (MVP), added 25 points, six assists, and five rebounds.

Tenorio was instrumental in the Kings fight back from the 15-point deficit in the first half.

PBA legend Robert Jaworski was at the Ginebra locker room during halftime and gave an inspirational talk and morale booster to the team.

Meralco was still in the lead, 88-86, after Hodge scored on two charities from a Tenorio foul. Brownlee scored on a tough fadeaway jumper to tie the score and setup his heroics in the end game.

The Bolts were led by Newsome who tallied 19 points.
The championship gave Tim Cone, the winningest coach in the league's history, his 19th PBA title.

The scores:

GINEBRA 91 - Brownlee 31, Tenorio 25, Thompson 10, Aguilar 7, Caguioa 6, Helterbrand 5, Ellis 4, Marcelo 3, Cruz 0, Devance 0, Mercado 0.

MERALCO 88 - Newsome 19, Durham 15, Hugnatan 12, Alapag 8, Faundo 8, Uyloan 7, Amer 6, Hodge 6, Nabong 4, Caram 3.

Quarterscores: 18-27, 32-45, 65-66, 91-88.
