JEFF Chan has typified Rain or Shine's shooting woes in Game Two, yet coach Yeng Guiao has only one message for his usually reliable gunner.
After watching the Painters make nine of 33 attempts from beyond the three-point arc against Ginebra's zone defense in a 77-79 loss on Friday night, Guiao said he will continue to give his gunners the green light to shoot if even the good looks.
"The zone gave us a lot of opportunities to shoot the three. We like that but we didn’t make enough. If given the same opportunity, we’ll take those (shooting) opportunities again,” said Guiao.
The same goes for Chan, who went 0-for-8 from the field in 28 minutes in the series opener on Wednesday and just 4-of-13 - including 2-of-10 from three-point distance - in the Game Two defeat.
Guiao said Chan, who has risen from an unknown to one of the league's top gunners over the last two seasons, is thinking too much about his 'slump' that the brain gets in the way of his shots.
“Ang sinasabi ko sa kanya (Chan), he’s thinking too much about his shots … Medyo conscious siya sa slump niya," said Guiao, who has seen the former FEU Tamaraw blossom under his wings.
And his instructions to the top gun?
"He’s a shooter. whether he’s on a slump or not, I will tell him to just keep shooting.”
