Things have been a little rough for the Beermen in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
Following a 36-point beating at the hands of Magnolia Wednesday, San Miguel Beer has suffered its second 30-point loss in the mid-season joust.
The Beermen also dropped to 2-4 in the team standings, complicating their playoff hopes by just a little bit.
Still, San Miguel refuses to press the panic button. Arwind Santos certainly won’t dwell on this loss too much.
“Kasi ako yung tao na yung mga negative, ginagawa ko kaagad sa positive,” he said.
“Kasi given yan na hindi lahat ng matatanggap mo sa buhay is positive or pumapabor sayo,” Santos added.
Facing off against Magnolia, the Hotshots had extra motivation to win as its the first meeting between the two teams since Game 7 of the Philippine Cup Finals.
Santos says Magnolia can have this 36-point win and they’ll keep their nice trophy after capturing Game 7 of the Finals.
“Nagkataon na natambakan kami ng  points, iniisip na lang namin na parang okay, mas pipiliin namin matambakan kami ng 50 points kaysa matalo kami ng Game 7,” Arwind said.
“Mga ganitong talo, masakit talaga, masakit tignan. Kami iniisip na lang na ganoon at least hindi pa naman huli yung lahat, mayroon pa namang chance. Mas pipiliin namin na matambakan kami ng 50 points basta wag lang kaming matalo ng Game 7,” Santos added.
