Rain or Shine’s Almazan benched for disciplinary reasons

Rain or Shine head coach Caloy Garcia decided not to field in Raymond Almazan on Wednesday as a disciplinary action for missing two consecutive practices.

Garcia said Almazan skipped the Elasto Painters’ practice sessions on Sunday and Monday after they bumped heads following the team’s loss to GlobalPort on Friday.

According to Garcia, he called out Almazan for his poor outing against the Batang Pier which did not sit well for the veteran center.

“Actually, after the loss against Global, medyo nagka-anuhan lang kami (we got into a bit of a fight), but I think everything is good right now,” Garcia said after the Painters’ 120-99 drubbing of Phoenix.

“Well, of course, frustration. We know that he can perform better than the way he did against Global,” he added. “Actually, I told Raymond before the start of this season that one of my goals was to basically make him a double-double player. That’s my target at the beginning.”
