MANILA—It's Ginebra vs. TNT in the PBA Governors' Cup Finals!

The Tropang Giga booked their place in the Last Dance with a 107-92 semifinals Game 4 win against the Meralco Bolts on Friday night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

TNT slowly pulled away in the final three quarters, scoring 30 or more in the second and the third periods before holding Meralco to only 17 in the fourth to seal the semis clincher.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson torched the Bolts anew with 42 points to lead the Tropang Giga alongside 11 rebounds, three assists, and two steals.

Calvin Oftana added 21 points on 8-for-11 field goals including 5-of-7 on threes with eight rebounds, one assist, two steals, and one block off the bench.

KJ McDaniels made 37 points, 12 rebounds, and four assists for Meralco, which missed the championship series of the season-ending conference after making it in four of the last five editions.

Game 1 is on Easter Sunday also at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, which will host the entire finals series.
