Time to ‘act now’ as road gets tougher for free-falling NLEX

first_imgNewsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases Although NLEX had three of its starters finish in double figures, the rest of the team either failed to carry their weight or just didn’t get much shot attempts.JR Quiñahan had 22 points to lead NLEX while Alex Mallari and Ravena had 17 and 14 points, respectively.In the surface, NLEX seems to have found out a balanced scoring route but the other two starters fired blanks in the Road Warriors’ 97-86 loss to Rain or Shine.Larry Fonacier made just one field goal on eight attempts and scored three points while Juami Tiongson went 2-of-10 for six points.“We have to be consistent as a team,” said Ravena. “I think we should look for other ways to win because we’re now in this stage where we lost four and our next four opponents aren’t pushovers.”ADVERTISEMENT View comments Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew ONE: Pacio wants to gauge progress against Japanese rivals OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson NLEX’s Kiefer Ravena.
