He is no stranger to the bond that Chut Reyes has as a consultant to the National Cage Program.

So he has confirmed that he will not find himself among others while on the TNT bench starting Sunday.

Troy Rosario hit one triple after another when Jason Castro stormed the Giga-minus Mikey Williams-Magnolia 78-72 as he walked out of the gates of the Smart Araneta Coliseum to claim the PBA Philippine Cup title defense.

“You all know what’s going on, don’t you?” With that [Southeast Asian Games] Loss, I am the most hated man in basketball in the Philippines today, “Race said shortly after the season opener.

Reiss said he was keeping himself busy with the work assigned to him. That night, it helped Trapang Giga regain their power over a known enemy.

And that’s what he did.

“Without our strongest offensive weapon, we would have to rely on our defenses,” he said. “The only way we can win the game is to limit the production of other teams. Fortunately, that is what happened tonight.

“We were bleeding for our points. But we were hoping it, we knew we would struggle big time, especially not just without Mikey [Williams]But Kelio [Williams] E.g. So, you know, it was just a matter of crushing it, leaning towards the defense and stopping after stopping. “

Williams is in the United States after negotiations stalled. Kelly Williams, the experienced big man, meanwhile, has been out for a week due to an undisclosed injury.

Nevertheless, the defending champions proved a ability against the Timplados.

Unforgivable defense

TNT starred Magnolia by just 13 points in the third quarter and then by just 17 points in the pay-off frame where Castro poured 13 of his 16 points.

“We’re just making sure we get our team ready to play without Mikey. And, as we said, fortunately, we were able to pull it off, “said Reyes.

Blackwater will play for the club in Antipolo City on Thursday. And there, the TNT coach hopes to stay away from all the annoyances directed at him.

“I am completely logged off. I don’t see anything being written about me. I am not on any social media. So, excluding the gift of busyness, it’s a gift of silence, and I’m very grateful because I logged off that I’m capable of so much, “Reyes said.

“Really, my refuge and source of comfort is my team, the players who have kept their confidence in me despite everything. In the end, as I said, the only thing we can do after such an incident is to stand up, “he added.
