    Chris Ross takes blame for Game 4 dud on night he won BPC award: 'I let my team down'

    Jun 28, 2017

    ON the night he received his first ever PBA Best Player of the Conference award, Chris Ross unfortunately put up an underwhelming performance.

    The San Miguel guard was quick to recognize it as he took the blame in the aftermath of the team’s 102-97 loss to TnT Katropa in Game Four of the PBA Commissioner's Cup finals on Wednesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    The second SMB guard to win the conference’s top individual honor after the great Allan Caidic finished with only eight points, four assists, and two steals, while turning the ball over four times in almost 39 minutes of action.

    "I didn't play well enough today for us to win and I feel like I let my team down," Ross told reporters shortly after the loss that evened the best-of-seven series at 2-all.

    "We played decent enough but that wasn't our style of play. We didn't play with a sense of urgency of trying to put them down 3-1 that's why they won. It started with me, I wasn't good enough."

    Not even his BPC plum was enough to console the cat-quick playmaker, who however, vowed to come out better in Game Five.

    "I don't really care about it (BPC), I wanna win a championship. All that other stuff is secondary; the reason I'm playing the game is to win a championship," he said.

    "I'll be better next game," Ross added. "We just have to play better. As one of the leaders, it starts with me. We'll see, we'll be ready on Friday."

    Game Five is at 7 p.m. on Friday also at the Big Dome.
