We need to continue being a little bit more disciplined,” he said. “I don’t know when Noy and Sonny are coming back, so we have to continue playing small ball. I love watching JP Mendoza, (Kevin) Racal, (Tony) Dela Cruz, guys that are lifetime threes mixing it up with the big guys. That’s we really have to do so I’m proud of the guys in terms of their effort.”Compton ended: “We need to find ways to cover up our shortcomings. Don’t you guys think they are playing hard? I mean, we are scrappy. We just got beaten by one of the two best teams in the league in TNT.”Alaska will take an extended break before springing back to action on January 11 next year against Star.ADVERTISEMENT EDITORS’ PICK We are young Where did they go?

I think at times, we like to play hard but when we gamble too much or try to make our own run plays too much, that sets us up for failure against a talented team. We also shot terrible from the free throw line,” he said, as the Aces shot 20-of-35 from the charity stripe.last_img read more
