Expect Phoenix to continue pushing the pace

MANILA, Philippines – Phoenix star Matthew Wright vows that the Fuel Masters will continue playing at a fast pace after they ran past the NLEX Road Warriors in their PBA Philippine Cup game last week.

Phoenix turned a slim 54-53 lead into a comfortable 102-95 victory, shackling NLEX rookie Kiefer Ravena and limiting Juami Tiongson after he got off to a fast start.

The momentum shifted in Phoenix's favor in the second half, when they got out in transition for quick points and crashed the offensive glass for second chance opportunities. The Fuel Masters blew the game open, leading by as much as 17 points before holding off the Road Warriors in the fourth frame.

"We beat NLEX because they weren't in shape in the last quarter of the game," Wright explained.

According to the second year guard, the Road Warriors could not keep in step with the Fuel Masters once they stepped on the gas pedal.
