TNT, SMB go at it again

It’s now TNT KaTropa’s turn to brace for a big fightback.

“It will again be a war,” coach Nash Racela said on Wednesday night, referring to Game 5 of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup best-of-seven title series where San Miguel Beer tries to bounce back from a lethargic performance that left both teams tied at 2-2.

“Definitely, we will not back down,” Racela said after coming out of the Texters’ preparations for the critical match.

The Beermen will still come into the game as the prohibitive favorites despite losing Game 4, 102-97. They had all the chances to win in the stretch, only to be outplayed by the Texters on both ends when it truly mattered.

Chris Ross, on the night he won his first Best Player of the Conference award, played his worst game of the series and promised a big day for the Beermen in Game 5.

“I felt I let my team down,” Ross, his head bowed, said after stepping out of the San Miguel locker room. “We played decent enough, but that’s not our style. We didn’t play with a sense of urgency. It started with me. I just wasn’t good enough.”
