Blown leads cause for concern for SMB coach Austria

ANTIPOLO — Knowing how strong San Miguel is, it’s almost a given that the defending three-time Philippine Cup champion will race up the scoreboard and gain a large lead, as evidenced by its first two games this conference.

Preserving that lead, however, is another story.

That’s what coach Leo Austria is trying to figure out as he hopes that there won’t be any more letups for the Beermen once the new year rings.

“I’m so very curious about this. That’s the tendency of the players usually. It’s human nature. Sometimes, you’re leading and you’re playing well in the first half and they think that it’s going to be an easy ride going to the last minute of the fourth quarter. But that’s not always going to be the case,” he said.

San Miguel erected double-digit leads in their first two games this conference, taking a 19-point lead in its opener against Phoenix last week and this time, grabbing a 22-point advantage against Meralco on Wednesday.
