BOCAUE--Ginebra has shown domination inside the Philippine Arena in front of more than 22,000 people every time the team plays here.

Even NLEX Road Warriors coach Yeng Guiao believes that the venue has become the Barangay's own turf.

Asked for a reaction, Coach Tim Cone, whose Ginebra squad once again won at the said arena right on Christmas night against Magnolia, is just glad his team is racking up wins inside the world's biggest dome.

"I'm happy that we've been able to do well here," he said.

The Barangay have racked up the most number of wins inside the Philippine Arena with five. Save for a loss to the Meralco Bolts on Oct. 25 in Game 6 of the PBA Governors' Cup, they would have held the best record here (the feat is interestingly being held by the Kia Picanto at 2-0).

But 53,642 flocked the said arena for that game, not to mention the 54,086 that came to the said venue for the ensuing Game 7 that Ginebra won.

"Because it's a big venue, a lot of people watch," Cone further commented.
