MANILA, Philippines – The Meralco Bolts may have come from an emphatic game two win over Ginebra San Miguel in their best-of-five series in the PBA Philippine Cup semifinals.
But head coach Norman Black is not resting on his laurels and expects a great improvement from his opponents.
« It’s always a game of adaptation in this type of series, » said Black. « Obviously we lost the first game so we really had to adapt to keep up with the Ginebra team, »
Seeking to regain control of the series, Black plans to make changes to his rival Tim Cone’s strategies.
However, the 63-year-old coach does not anticipate the movements of his opponents, but rather focuses on what he and the rest of his squad can control.
And it all starts with their preparation, which will lead to the decisive matchup of the third game today.
« We just need to prepare the team as best we can and study the tape to see where we can make some improvements, » said Black.
Whether or not the Meralco Bolts can maintain their momentum against the Gin Kings with the highest seeds remains to be seen when the game ends at 6:30 p.m.. m. in the AUF sports arena and in the cultural center.
Before the clash between Meralco and Ginebra, the TNT Tropang Giga and the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters will also try to break the impasse in their streak in the first game, which starts at 4pm. m.
