Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netNLEX has found itself in a 0-2 rut in the start of PBA’s Philippine Cup, but coach Yeng Guiao firmly believes that they just need time to recover their confidence“We just turned the ball over too many times. We had 23 and three or four of them came in the crucial part of the game,” Guiao told the press shortly after the Road Warriors lost to NorthPort Batang Pier on Sunday night.ADVERTISEMENT Guiao, though, clarified that he is not talking the loss lightly. He said matter-of-factly that he is disappointed. But in the same breath, he said that his squad isn’t waving the white flag just yet.“We’re bound to get better,” Guiao said. “We’re staying positive. We’ve improved on our rebounding which was a really bad [part of our play] in the first game.“We’re a bit better with our execution of plays, too. We were close but again, the problem is that we committed our turnovers in a crucial part.”Guiao hopes that the game on Wednesday heralds the turnaround he and his team is waiting for.“We have two more games [on deck]—on Wednesday and Sunday. If we can start winning again, I think all we need is a little time to regain our confidence.”ADVERTISEMENT NLEX faces listless sister team TNT first before going for Columbian next.
