"Siyempre alam naman natin na malakas ‘yung kalaban, malakas pati sa taas. Wala na tayong magagawa." --- Calvin Abueva.
Alaska's bitter loss to Brgy. Ginebra in the quarterfinals of the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup has left a bad taste in Calvin Abueva's mouth.
With the Aces losing a twice-to-beat edge to the Gin Kings, the Beast was throwing shades all over after getting the boot courtesy of Ginebra for the second straight conference.
"Hanggang dulo may kasama. Hindi natin alam kung sino," Abueva said following Alaska's 97-108 loss Tuesday.
"Basta kami naglaro kami ng maayos. Hindi naman natin maaano, twice-to-beat naman kami," he added.
The Beast certainly did his part in trying to push Alaska back to the All-Filipino semifinals. In almost 33 minutes of play, Abueva totalled 29 points and 13 rebounds.
For his part, Abueva did acknowledge Ginebra being a strong team. However, he also said something else.
"Siyempre alam naman natin na malakas ‘yung kalaban, malakas pati sa taas. Wala na tayong magagawa," he said.
