We have to look at our mistakes today,” said Pingris, as the Hotshots hope to bounce back from this 91-67 Game 6 defeat to Ginebra on Sunday.“It was their night. We did all we can but the game was really for them. So on Game 7, we have to give it our all and leave nothing behind. Whatever we have left, we have to put it out there.”Pingris finished with 14 points, 10 rebounds and three assists in Game 6, but there’s no doubt that his team needs more from him and everyone else if they want to advance to the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup Finals.“The game here is on our adjustments. Whoever adjusts better for Game 7 will get the edge,” he said. “We know every one will give their 100-percent, so let’s see what happens on Game 7.” ADVERTISEMENT 98% of residents in Taal Volcano’s 14-kilometer danger zone evacuated – DILG Ginebra forges ‘50-50’ Game 7 Prince Harry: ‘No other option’ but to cut royal ties Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
