ROBERT Dozier wants Alaska to play with urgency every game especially with the PBA Commissioner’s Cup having a short tournament format.
"All we have to do is win, especially with these (first) five games in two weeks. We don't have much time to recover, so we need to go over on things," said the do-it-all import after the defending champion notched its first game Saturday with a 93-77 whipping of winless Globalport Saturday night at the Astrodome.
Dozier was a picture of concentration especially in the final quarter when he scored 15 of his game-high 25 points.
Still, he expressed frustration for the Aces’ failure to sustain its energy from start to finish.
"When I was here and we won, we kind of get up in the first quarter, then letdown in the third. So we just have to focus on playing in complete four quarters, and not just two," said last year’s Best Import winner of this very same conference.
With three more games to go for the Aces in the next nine days, the former Memphis Tiger forward said they will have to bring their A-game every time in the hope of at least finishing among the top four in the standings.
"We need to keep us on top of the game. But coach is doing everything. All we need is execute our game plan."
The Meralco Bolts are next for the Aces whom they battle on Wednesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.\
