The Beermen are looking to end their back-to-back defeats this evening while the Elite wanted to avoid getting buried deeper in the standings when PBA resumes at the MOA Arena.
Scoring 24 points and grabbing 14 rebounds in just a game could be considered as great performance for many basketball players but for the five-time Most Valuable Player seems like he’s having an off-night.
“Struggling ako. Ako yung tinitignan ng mga teammates ko, pero hindi ko sila na i-lift. Pag pangit ang laro ko, malaki ang chance talo kami,” Fajardo said.
“Kailangan kong bumawi at mag-bounce back,” he added.
Former PBA MVP and SMB’s team captain Arwind Santos sat out on that ROS game due to food poisoning is itching to lead his team to victory.
“Hindi pa naman huli ang lahat. Magre-regroup kami kasi hindi maganda yung talo. Depensa daw. Tignan natin kung maaayos natin next game,” said Arwind Santos
In their last outing, Phoenix hammered them hard from the get-go and didn’t give them a chance to make a comeback.
For Elite’s head coach Bong Ramos, he used that opportunity to give more playing minutes for his rookies in order for them to get more feel in the pro-league.
