The KaTropa is looking for a much commanding series lead at 3-1 while the Beermen wanted to reduce the series to best-of-three when the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals resumes this evening at the Big Dome.
San Miguel threw away their 17-point lead advantage in the early goings of their Game 3 bout last Friday.
Chris Ross’ mind game against Terrence Jones in the first half seems to be working as he removed the focus of TNT import from the game.
There was an instance where Jones threw a head-butt on Ross. He got whistled for a flagrant foul penalty 1 but later after the Commissioner’s Office review, it got upgraded to penalty 2 and a fine of P20,000.
Yet, coach Bong Ravena and their active consultant Mark Dickel clearly saw the situation from their bench and cooled down their foreign hire.
“Sinasabihan namin to stay focused, be patient, and don’t lose your head,” said TNT coach Bong Ravena.
The result was a blistering 24-0 outburst from their squad as they reclaimed the lead and eventually won Game 3.
That scoring blast has made TNT the second team in the PBA that puts their opponent in a scoring drought. The top notcher of that milestone is the Ginebra’s 31-0 blast against the Shell squad back in 1991.
playing smart is the key to their success this evening if you ask SMB import Chris Mccullough.
“We can’t come out like that. Everybody’s got to be ready. Everybody’s got to be on the same page mentally,”
