TALK ‘N Text’s newly-acquired forward Danny Seigle had mixed feelings beating Barako Bull, his team for two PBA seasons.
“I just approached it like any other game," Seigle told Spin.ph on Friday night shortly after the Texters' 87-80 overtime victory. "I knew they’ll (Energy) play us tough, but I’m just happy we got the win.”
Seigle had only good words for Barako Bull, which fought back from the depths of a 23-point deficit to force an extra period behind six three-pointers by Willie Millier, JC Intal and Mick Pennisi.
Although the Energy lost their sixth straight game after a 2-0 start, Seigle said his former team could've easily been 6-4 (win-loss) right now had it gotten the breaks in the endgame of most of those matches.
“I mean, they have a lot of heart. They’ve been in a lot of close games and if momentum is on their side, they’re gonna be a tough team,” he said.
“They could have easily won three or four games.”
As for his new team, the 37-year-old Seigle, who's averaging 9.0 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists this season, said the Texters have yet to play to their full potential.
“We’re definitely not playing to our full potential yet. But the good thing is we’re getting wins. We know what we’re doing wrong and we know that we have to make adjustments in order to continue keeping winning,” he said.
