Full speed ahead for R. Warriors

Ejections have become a rarity for NLEX Road Warriors coach Yeng Guiao – until two days earlier when the fiery mentor got an early exit after receiving a second technical with 4:19 left in their game against the Kia Picanto.

Guiao immediately went to the press room of the Mall of Asia Arena to watch on television the remaining minutes of the contest won by his Road Warriors, 100-93, marking the first time in his tenure that his team has started 2-0 in a conference.

“I was so excited I came to this room early. Nagpa-dalawang technical na lang ako para makasama ko kayo agad,” Guiao told reporters in jest.

Guiao is starting to smile again after seeing NLEX go on a rare streak. The Road Warriors have been victorious in their last four games dating back to the latter part of the Commissioner’s Cup as they are slowly erasing the losing mentality that hounded them in the first two conferences.

At presstime, the Road Warriors are tied for the early lead with the Phoenix Fuel Masters in the PBA Governors’ Cup, showing promising signs of a potential rise from a mediocre squad to a playoff contender.

Guiao, however, would rather ease expectations at this point.
