Both teams are looking to snag the 2-0 record at the end of the main featured game this evening in the PBA bubble in Pampanga. Yet, only one of them will get that advantage after the last buzzer is pressed.
As everyone expected and that includes Gin Kings head coach Tim Cone that the players of team NSD needs to do a lot in terms of conditioning to be back in their usual winning form came to their first game against the NLEX Road Warriors below their A-Game looks.
However, they gave all they got despite missing their usual ever-supportive fans.
“We played a lot better than I thought we would, but I still hope we could play a lot better than what we did tonight,” said Ginebra coach Tim Cone.
“But it’s nice to get that first one against NLEX. I hope this gets off on the right foot, hopefully, move us forward and get us to our next game with a little more confidence,” added Cone.
For the Elite, on the other hand, coach Nash Racela is back in PBA, and immediately his impact is felt not only by his team but also their opponent.
Against the NorthPort Batang Pier last Monday, the blueprint of the former TNT KaTropa plays is evident.
“It’s a good sign for me as a coach na our players are being responsible,” said Racela. “It takes everybody contributing. That’s something that we need if you want to perform consistently.”
