Maliksi’s cites Blackwater’s lack of experience as cause of downfall vs Meralco

MANILA, Philippines — Taking on Star will have to wait for former Hotshot Allein Maliksi.

After running out of fumes trying to upset the top-seeded Meralco Bolts, the Blackwater Elite missed an opportunity to take on the Purefoods squad waiting in the PBA Governors’ Cup semifinal.

Maliksi, who was traded to the expansion team late in the elimination phase, admitted on Thursday night that he was indeed looking forward on facing his former team.

“Oo naman,” he said of expecting to face Star. “Hindi ko naman itatago ‘yung ganoong feeling. “Pero ‘yun nga, baka si God na ‘yung gumagawa ng way na ka-bracket namin ang (Hotshots), tapos nanalo kami ng first game (against Meralco) — baka may pag-asa pa kami makapag-upset tonight (Thursday).”

“Pero, ‘yun lang, baka kulang pa din talaga ‘yung experience namin as a team,” he added.

The Elite ignited for 13 markers in their do-or-die tussle with the No. 1 Bolts. They led by as many as 12 in the game, but all that had been for naught when Baser Amer caught fire in the second half.
