Dubai is Barangay Ginebra's Homecourt

Last night's game between Barangay Ginebra Kings and Rain or Shine Elastopainters saw the Al Shabab Stadium in Al Mamzar, Dubai full til the rafters, with many sitting or standing on the stairways.  Dubai indeed is the home turf of the Barangay.

Ginebra won the nail-biting game 89-88. View details.

Unlike on Thursday, game between Rain or Shine and Barako Bull Energy hardy filled a quarter of the stadium. RoS won 99-95. View details.

I wonder why PBA opted to play Rain or Shine twice instead of the Gin Kings...

Below are notable Ginebra fan signs on the crowd. (Thanks PBA Atin 'to Facebook Page and Nuki Sabio for the photos)

In 2007 though, when Ginebra played Purefoods in a lone match here, the most popular PBA teams, the stadium was half-empty. The absence of Mark Caguioa, JayJay Helterbrand (National Team) and Eric Menk (injury) were obviously a factor.
