However, NLEX still have four more chances which includes their game tonight on reaching that goal which they haven’t tasted for a very long time.
“We’re not far off our objective, although it gets tougher as the teams are preparing hard for us,” said the champion coach. “San Miguel and TnT are coming up, including Star.”
“At 5-2 we’re in a good position. Six wins assure you of a quarter. We have another four chances to do that because we have four games left.”
“We hope we can win one of those (four game). Maybe two, if we get lucky, we can win three,” he said. “I guess overall we should be happy with the way we’re playing this conference.”
