RAJKO Toroman admits the Barako Bull Energy Cola do have a problem.
But he insists Evan Brock is not part of it.
Barako Bull's consultant gave the import a fresh vote of confidence amid a slide by the Energy Cola in the PBA Commissioner's Cup that has seen the team fall to 3-3 (win-loss) after a fast start.
“He gives us points, he gives us rebounds, he’s reliable on defense. What more can we ask for,” said the Serbian mentor of the quietly effective reinforcement.
If there is someone to blame, the former Gilas coach said it should be the locals. “The problem is more on the domestic side of our roster,” he stressed.
Toroman said they have addressed the problems in their game plan during a two-game losing skid, and he hopes the adjustments will work when Barako Bull returns to action on Saturday in a road game against Talk 'N Text in Legazpi City.
“We have been analyzing what happened in the last two games. We have addressed the problems and the players now understand,” bared the 57-year-old veteran internationalist.
Asked if he intends to ease off on his taxing training routines and tactics, Toroman replied: “No, we will not change so much. We will continue to practice hard."
Barako Bull coach Bong Ramos said: “Wala kaming problem sa offense, may mga off nights lang talaga yung ibang key players namin. Hopefully everything changes for the better next time."
Veteran center Mick Pennisi is also set to return to action after a bout with flu sidelined him for the match against Petron.
