Smith rues lack of aggressiveness

TNT KaTropa import Joshua Smith put the blame on the team’s crushing defeat in Game 2 not only to San Miguel’s air-tight defense but also for their failure to control their emotions.

And their seeming lack of energy, too.

“We’re the more aggressive team in the first game and we won. They’re the more aggressive team in this game. It’s a seven-game series, now it’s five,” added Smith, who buried the game-winning basket in Game 1.

Despite playing hurt, Smith used his truck-like body to bulldoze his way past his defenders for 21 points and 9 boards in Game 1.

But last Friday, he was held to only eight attempts – a clear victim of San Miguel double or sometimes triple defense.

“It’s a seven-game series. We lost one game. It’s funny because we win close games and the games we lose, we get blown out. If that’s an indication right there, we want to come back ready for Game 3,” he said after the team’s 102-88 loss.
