Nico Salva hopes to sustain breakout game

Desperate for a silver lining this 2018 PBA Philippine Cup, Meralco coach Norman Black may have stumbled on a difference-maker in a familiar face buried deep in his roster.

That proved to be Nico Salva, who repaid his coach’s faith and played the game of his life on Friday.

The seldom-used forward saw the most action he had in a Bolts jersey, tallying 20 points and two rebounds in his 23 minutes of play in their game against NLEX.

That performance was stark contrast from his averages of 0.8 points and 1.8 rebounds in his limited time this conference.

Salva is just nothing but grateful.

“Coach Norman just kept on putting me in the other games even though I wasn’t producing much. He just let me get my rhythm, get my confidence and I wanted to repay his trust and help the team out,” he said.
