The Bolts executed their needed adjustment in Game 2 and it gave an immediate dividend to them as they tied the series at one game apiece.
The squad coached by Norman Black lived to their monicker as they showed up in Game 2 having renewed energy enough to topple the KaTropa.
“We had a lot more energy, we played a lot more physical than we did in Game 1, and we executed a lot better on offense, particularly in the first half. Those are the things you’re gonna have to do to beat a team like TNT because they’re a tough team and very difficult to beat,” Black said.
One of Meralco players who demonstrated energetic performance was Allen Durham who made a triple-double performance with his 44 points, 19 rebounds, and 11 assists.
Apart from their tireless import, Baser Amer made an important contribution particularly in the first two frames of the game. Amer had 20 points where his coach appreciates.
Though the Bolts were successful on bouncing back in Game 2, coach Black admits that it’s still a long series and there’s no time to celebrate.
“It’s not over at this point, just the second game,” said Black. “But we had to win this game to tie the series up. We knew if we went down 2-0 it would be very tough to come back from that.”
For the KaTropa’s camp, on the other hand, RR Pogoy who had a hot hand in Game 1 went scoreless in Game 2. Jayson Castro on the other hand also got shutdown and only managed to make seven points.
However, KJ McDaniels continues his scoring prowess who made 51 points but all went to the trash bin as they failed to deliver the victory. McDaniels along with Pogoy and Castro are all expected to make a bounce back this evening.
