SMB, TNT out to break tie

Rookie TNT KaTropa coach Nash Racela was not about to offer any excuses for what happened Friday night.

“We did not lose because of the import,” Racela said matter-of-factly, minutes after his Texters got blown off the Smart Araneta Coliseum floor in Game 2 of their PBA Commissioner’s Cup title series with San Miguel Beer.

That’s why Racela is sticking it out with burly Joshua Smith as the Texters try to bounce back from the silly manhandling they got as TNT and favored San Miguel break a 1-1 tie on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. also at the fabled Big Dome floor.

“They (Beermen) had a scheme [for] Joshua,” Racela said. “The problem was how we reacted to the other things they were doing.”

One of those ugly reactions came from rookie RR Pogoy, who was coming off a career game in the series opener. Pogoy had a short night after losing his top and striking Arwind Santos in the groin to get ejected.

He was lucky enough to duck suspension and just be slapped a P30,000 fine despite being whistled for a flagrant foul 2 penalty.
