Victolero elated with Hotshots' momentum-building win over NLEX

 MANILA, Philippines — Star head coach Chito Victolero noted that his team already had the proper mindset going into the game with NLEX.

The team just needed a bit of reminding midway the game.

The Hotshots mounted a second half run spearheaded by Paul Lee, Marc Barroca and import Kirstofer Acox to put the Road Warriors in the backseat en route the 101-93 victory, Sunday night at the Big Dome.

“I told my players na we just needed to win — that whatever happens in the second game, it’s not in our control,” Victolero said. “What we control is ‘yung game namin.”

“I’m proud of my players especially in the second half, nag-step up yung defense namin. Plus yung ball movement namin medyo gumanda,” the mentor said. “Noong first half kasi, we kept on doing one-on-one offense, so nung second, I told my players to move the ball.”

“Buti naka-recover kami,” he added with a sigh of relief.
