‘BREAKS OF THE GAME LAHAT YAN’ – JARENCIO
With San Mig Coffee knotting the count in the ongoing PLDT myDSL PBA Philippine Cup Finals at 1-1, the ball is now in the hands of coach Yeng Guiaoto make the adjustments once more.
Newly minted GlobalPort coach Pido Jarencio gave his two cents worth on the series, which has now became a race-to-three affair.
“Breaks of the game lahat yan,” the former UST head coach said.
“The Finals is a game of momentum. Nakuha yun ng San Mig nung Game 2, tapos di naman maka-deliver yung Rain or Shine.”
He added, “Sa Game 3, mag-iiba na naman yan eh. Malay natin, baka mag-shift naman yung momentum sa Rain or Shine.”
Though Jarencio would like to reserve his comments, saying that he doesn’t want to offend the two coaches in the title series, he believes that the constant issue of fatigue is nothing but an imaginary problem.
“Finals na to eh. Championship na. Wala nang pagod-pagod,” he said.
He also said that he views Marc Pingris and Beau Belga will be the X-factors in the series, with the two men acting as their respective team’s leaders. He also believes that it will be a long series. But unlike the others, he doesn’t think that the Finals will go the distance.
“Sa akin, hanggang Game 6 lang yan. Bahala na sila kung sino mananalo pagdating ng Game 6.” (RL)
