MIKE Harry Nzeusseu provided the highlight in the Jawbreakers’ win over AMA Online on Thursday with a slam dunk over Andre Paras.
Zark’s-Lyceum was in firm control when the Nzeusseu dunk came and the move seemed to add insult to injury, but the 22-year-old Nzeusseu said he simply wants to make it a habit to finish strong, regardless of how close the game is.
“I always try to finish hard. It just so happened that he was at the wrong place at the wrong time,” said Nzeusseu, who stuffed the stat sheet with 17 points, 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks.
Nzeusseu said he is enjoying his stint in the PBA D-League, as he welcomes the change of play different from the NCAA where he was one of the top bigs.
“I like playing in the D-League. It’s a different environment. I always try to be different from the NCAA. Actually, today, I missed a lot of baskets early in the game so hopefully, I can get better and try different things,” Nzeusseu said.
One of the new things that he is trying to do is take shots from the outside, although he missed his only three of the game on Thursday.
“I was more of playing in the inside (in the NCAA). Now, I try to bring my game outside so that I can have an outside and inside (game),” Nzeusseu said.
The Cameroonian also welcomes the physicality in the PBA D-League, which challenges him to play better.
“I like it. It’s nice. It’s always nice to feel somebody. It’s kinda turning me on. The more they hit me, the more I turn on. I’m not trying to get back at them by hitting them, but get back at them by scoring on them,” he said.
