Guiao blasts Painters for back-to-back losses
MANILA, Philippines – A frustrated Yeng Guiao lashed at his Rain or Shine squad following their 79-94 loss to Alaska during the PBA Governors’ Cup game on Wednesday.
It was the defending champions’ second straight loss since yielding to Petron Blaze, 84-99, last Friday.
“Napagalitan ko talaga sila. Hindi ako happy with our intensity. Hindi ako masaya with our inconsistency. Masyado kaming off,” Guiao said in Snow Badua’s Spin.ph report.
“We’ve had off nights before. Ayos lang sa akin 'yun dahil tao lang kami, pero hindi ganun na sunod-sunod,” he added.
What particularly irked Guiao was the way they got throttled by the Aces.
He said his main men, who were part of the Gilas Pilipinas squad, were practically absent as they were outscored by 15 points.
“Hindi pa rin pumuputok 'yung tatlong Gilas namin," he said, referring Jeff Chan, Gabe Norwood and Beau Belga. "I am hoping puputok na sila. Tapos ayun, nawala pa si Paul [Lee] because of a sprain.”
Guiao hopes that they will be able to bounce back in their next game, where they will battle the Air21 Express.
“We’re still 2-2. Maganda pa rin ang record namin,” he noted.
