MANILA, Philippines – Beau Belga will take advantage of Henry Walker’s short fuse if that's what it takes for Rain or Shine to win its best-of-five PBA Governors’ Cup semifinals series against Alaska.

In an interview with Spin.ph’s Snow Badua, Belga claimed that they were able to ruin Henry’s game by agitating the Alaska import.

“Pikon siya. Madali siyang mapikon at napipikon siya 'pag pinipisikal mo siya,” the Rain or Shine enforcer said bfollowing their 99-87 Game 2 win over the Aces last Sunday.

With Henry out of sync, the Elasto Painters were able to hold down the import’s figures to 18 points.

Belga said they expect to use the same strategy when they resume their semifinal battle on Tuesday. The series is currently tied at 1-all.

“Madaling masira laro niya kaya advantage sa amin 'yun. Siguro kung may chance na mas atakihin pa yung kahinaan niya na 'yun, 'yun siguro ang gagawin namin,” said Belga. “Siyempre, advantage sa amin 'yun kung masisira laro niya. Import siya eh.”

The burly Filipino center pointed out that Rain or Shine is known for its physicality in games, adding that Walker should know that.

“Kami naman kahit na anong mangyari, 'yun na talaga ang laro namin,” he said, even as he denied playing dirty against Walker.

Following their loss, Walker complained that Belga and company used dirty tactics on him.

The Alaska import was upset after sustaining a busted lip and a painful arm while getting entangled with Rain or Shine's center throughout Game 2.
