NLEX avoids collapse against Kia for 2-0 start

NLEX staved off a near collapse by fending off Kia's fight-back in the second half to win 100-93 in the PBA Governor's Cup at Mall of Asia Arena on Saturday.

Despite suffering a cut in his hand, Aaron Fuller registered a double-double of 24 points and 19 rebounds to help the Road Warriors remain unbeaten in 2 games.

“We got ourselves mentally out of the game,” said NLEX coach Yeng Guiao, who was ejected midway through the 4th quarter after incurring his second technical.

“We could have finished the game strong but we were not able to, we relaxed too early. Our execution was bad in the last quarter. Defensively, we lost focus.”

Guiao, however, remained positive especially after his squad registered its best start in three conferences.

“I think the confidence level is better. We were really excited before this game because there's something good happening in the team. We feel there is a transformation in the team,” he said.
