The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Kings proved steadier in the endgame as they racked up seven unanswered points to close out their Manila Clasico clash with Star, 92-87, in the Oppo PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Sunday at the SMART Araneta Coliseum.

Ginebra needed to weather a big third quarter run from Star and actually still trailed with 1:17 left to play but got the big shots it needed to come out on top.

Othyus Jeffers had 23 points, 15 rebounds, and 7 assists, while Japeth Aguilar scored 15 points – all of them in the first half.

Ginebra is now 2-2 for the conference, while Star dropped to 1-4.

The Hotshots were paced by Mark Barroca’s 16 points, while Denzel Bowles and PJ Simon added 15 and 14 markers respectively.
