Yeng Guiao, Ryan Gregorio, Luigi Trillo all agree: Inconsistent PBA refs a big problem

April 24, 2014

Rain or Shine head coach Yeng Guiao. PBA file/Nuki SabioRival coaches Yeng Guiao of Rain or Shine, Ryan Gregorio of Meralco, and Luigi Trillo of Alaska don’t always see eye to eye, but they agree on one thing: the officiating in the quarterfinals playoffs of the PLDT Home TVolution Commissioner’s Cup has been inconsistent.

“We don’t know anymore what’s a foul and not a foul,” Guiao said, who couldn’t hide his frustration after hard fouls against rookie Raymond Almazan and import Wayne Chism in Game Two of their series against Meralco were judged to be regular instead of flagrant fouls.

“I’m not the only guy complaining about excessive physicality and I would be the last to complain because it’s our type of game. But I think punching a player on the face on a rebound play, something which was done by Cliff Hodge, that’s way out of the rules of this league.

“The refs just missed a lot of calls. There’s no problem with the physicality. Jared Dillinger did not go after the ball when he fouled Chism. Chism has been on the floor everytime he’s being fouled and those were hard fouls. If that’s what physicality is about, is that the type of physicality that we want? We can give you that, pwede naming ibigay sa inyo yun.”...

April 24, 2014

Rain or Shine head coach Yeng Guiao. Sports5/Paolo PapaEven after the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters had already won Game Two of their PLDT Home TVolution Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals series on Wednesday against Meralco, coach Yeng Guiao remained in a fighting mood.

Rain or Shine runs roughshod over sloppy Meralco Bolts, forges game three

April 24, 2014

 Wayne Chism of Rain or Shine gets one over the defense of Meralco's Reynel Hugnatan. Jeff VenancioThe Rain or Shine Elasto Painters made it two for two for the teams that had their backs against the wall with a 102-93 win over the Meralco Bolts, Wednesday night at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

After the San Mig Super Coffee Mixers defeated the Alaska Aces, the Elasto Painters made sure their series will also be extended to a do-or-die game three in the Commissioner's Cup quarterfinals, as they walloped the Bolts.

Sunday Salvacion tried to shoot the Bolts back in the game in the fourth quarter after Meralco trailed by 20 points. He made two huge triples to cut Rain or Shine's lead down to five, 93-88 with 1:28 left in the game. However, it was not enough as the Elasto Painters held on for the win....
