MANILA--Ginebra looks to end an eight-year PBA title drought as the team locks horns anew with Meralco in Game 6 of the Governors' Cup finals at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Wednesday night.

The Barangay, who own a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series, can close out the championship round with a win against the Bolts, giving them their first pennant since winning the 2008 Fiesta Conference.

For Coach Tim Cone, however, doing it so is not that easy.

"Closing out a series is the hardest thing to do," the winningest coach in league history said.

He also expressed awareness of what Meralco can do especially that the club is at the brink of elimination.

"[The Bolts'] are a great team when their backs are into the wall," Cone continued.

He, however, vowed, "We are certainly not looking to a Game 7," although he is expecting Game 6 to go down the wire again.
