RAIN or Shine gunner Jeff Chan isn’t making any excuses after a miserable shooting night in the crucial Game Three that ended in a 69-78 loss to San Mig Super Coffee on Saturday.
Chan had a conference low four points, taking just six attempts overall and going 0-of-3 from the three-point zone.
His scoring partner Paul Lee only had two points, going just 1-of-6 from the field, leaving import Arizona Reid to carry the scoring load.
And since the team lacked the energy, San Mig was able to shackle them defensively, particularly in the final period, leading to a disappointing loss.
“Medyo di kami naglaro ng maayos kanina lalo na nung second half,” rued the left-handed Chan.
“Lumamang na kami ng one point, tapos parang nag-four turnovers straight. Sana matuto kami or else wala na.”
Still, Chan is thankful that Best Import Arizona Reid reminded them to hold their heads high as they try to grab a win on Monday to force a series decider.
“Si AZ, sabi nga niya heads up lang, may game pa naman at may chance pa manalo.
Hopefully, by Game Four, mas maganda ang ball movement namin, para mas may chance umiskor,” he added.
Game Four is set on Monday with San Mig looking to put an exclamation point to its dominant run in the league in the last four conferences.
