POY Erram had a frustrating debut in a TNT uniform on Sunday in the PBA Philippine Cup.
The newest Tropang GIGA player only saw action for 16 minutes, thrown out late in the third quarter for incurring a technical foul for second motion that followed a flagrant foul penalty one slapped on him in the first quarter.
The former NLEX big man has long left the court by the time RR Pogoy and Jayson Castro carried TNT to a 100-95 win over Alaska on Sunday in the first game inside the PBA bubble at the Angeles University Foundation gym.
“Poy needs to adjust,” said NLEX coach Bong Ravena. “Nafa-frustrate siya. He needs to be patient and he needs to adjust. Hindi naman namin siya pabababayaan.”
Erram actually had a relatively fine game with eight rebounds and six assists even though he only had four points in the contest.
With the debut game behind him, Ravena is hoping that Erram will be able to make the adjustments before TNT's next match against Terrafirma on Tuesday.
“Kailangan lang talaga ng adjustment sa role niya at sa game niya. Hopefully, next game, okay na siya,” said Ravena.
