"We were also aggressive today. Glen Rice kept on attacking the basket. I don't know what coach Tim was talking about. Watch the game." --- Nash Racela.
Ginebra head coach Tim Cone had a pretty simple explanation as to why his team had more free throws in Game 3 of the Governors' Cup semifinals against TNT.
Cone says the Gin Kings were just the more aggressive team.
On Friday, Ginebra shot 30-of-43 from the stripe compared to only 12-of-14 on the part of the KaTropa.
"We were the more aggressive team tonight. We went to the line a lot because we were the more aggressive team tonight," Cone said.
However, in typical Nash fashion, Racela has an answer to that as well.
He says the KaTropa were aggressive too.
"We were also aggressive today. Glen Rice kept on attacking the basket. I don't know what coach Tim was talking about. Watch the game," Racela said.
For additional context, the KaTropa won the free throw battle in Game 2, shooting 19-of-35 compared to Ginebra's 11-of-18.
"We all know why we got a lot of free throws last game, because they really fouled us," Racela said.
"I don't know, today, we really fouled them, that's why they got a lot of free throws. I think the next game, we will foul them a lot again and they'll get a lot of free throws again. We just have to find ways," Nash, with just a hint of sarcasm, added.
