Jazul, Alaska hoping to survive two more games
Down 0-3 in a seven-game series almost looks like a death sentence but if there’s a team that knows an improbable comeback is possible it’s the Alaska Aces.
Alaska was down three games to nothing on Friday and a loss would send the Aces into oblivion, but just as they witnessed San Miguel do the unthinkable to them in the Philippine Cup Finals, they too would start their comeback bid.
Fast forward to Sunday and the Aces are now just a game behind with a 3-2 series line and point guard RJ Jazul said they’re not finished.
“Lagi naman kaming survival mode, so down kaming 0-3 sabi namin makaisa lang,” Jazul said. “Then worry again for the next game.”
“Sa awa ng Diyos naka isa kami nung Game 4, then ito uli isa pa,” he said.
Jazul finished with 13 points, six rebounds, and four assists.
“Everyday survival, wala pa namin kaming nagagawa eh,” said Jazul. “Naagawa lang namin pahabain series, and hopefully maka isa uli.”
“Isipin lang namin game by game, maka-survive lang talaga. Thankful naka survive kami ngayon.”
