Despite loss, coach believes Mahindra heading in right direction

January 24, 2017

 Mahindra coach Chris Gavina. Richard Esguerra, ABS-CBN SportsMANILA, Philippines – Despite a disappointing campaign in the 2016-17 PBA Philippine Cup, Mahindra coach Chris Gavina remains confident that the Floodbuster are heading in the right direction in their quest to become perennial contenders in the league.

A 91-107 loss to the Alaska Aces took Mahindra out of the running for a playoff spot in the conference as they dropped to a 2-7 win-loss record. It was also their second straight defeat after having won back-to-back games against Blackwater and Meralco.

"That's two games in a row that we played great for about three and a half quarters," said Gavina after the game.

He credited Alaska coach Alex Compton for making a crucial substitution at the start of the fourth quarter when he sent in veteran gunner Dondon Hontiveros into the game.
