For the first time it what seemed like forever, Brgy. Ginebra and TNT will take on each other in a playoff series.

The Gin Kings and the KaTropa renew their rivalry Sunday as both teams play Game 1 of their 2017 PBA Commissioner's Cup best-of-5 semifinal series at the MOA Arena.

Earning the no. 1 seed after an incredible run in the elimination round, Ginebra obviously earns the upper hand in this showdown until TNT actually takes it.

However, a new cause of concern for the barangay is the KaTropa's new import Joshua Smith.

The towering Smith didn't play in the team's previous outing this conference as TNT still had Donte Greene at its disposal during that 107-89 Ginebra win back in April.

Game 1 between no. 1 Ginebra and no. 4 TNT is set for 7:00 p.m. at the MOA Arena.
