Ginebra Vs GlobalPort Game Review
On Sunday, the two newcomers put those on display, as they combined for 25 points and provided the effort that was appreciated by the Gin Kings veterans.
“They’re the energy guys,” said new Ginebra point guard LA Tenorio.
Jensen couldn’t believe the reception he got from the sellout crowd of 18,901, most of which was pro-Ginebra.
“The feeling was amazing. It’s incredible and it’s become more special because my loved ones were watching from the sidelines while some of our relatives and friends were watching in the United States,” Jensen told AKTV’s Erika Padilla.
Agent Charlie Dy, who represents both players, said Jensen’s mother, grandfather, and aunt flew in from the United States just to catch the players’ PBA debut.
Ellis said he was energized by the Ginebra crowd.
“When you have fans as big as the Ginebra fans, it will keep your energy going,” said Ellis. “But we have a great group of talented guys and as long as we’re playing together, we’ll be OK.”
Ellis and Jensen said they want to reward Ginebra’s legions of fans with the best gift a player can give.
“Nothing but a championship,” said the two players.
