"Must-win talaga namin yun kasi para makabawi kami. 1-2 yung standing namin eh." -- RR Pogoy.
TNT's game against Blackwater Wednesday had that "must-win" feel to it.
Lose and the KaTropa would be down to 1-3 in the Philippine Cup. The win enabled TNT to get back to .500 and right in the middle of a crowded pack.
"Must-win talaga namin yun kasi para makabawi kami. 1-2 yung standing namin eh," RR Pogoy said after the game.
"Buti na lang maganda yung nilaro ko," he added.
Pogoy came through for TNT in the win, sparking a third-quarter run and finished with a game-high 24 points.
Veteran point guard Jayson Castro basically shared the same sentiment, saying that it would have been disastrous if TNT lost again.
"Sobrang important yung panalo na to kasi if natalo kami dito, di ko alam saan kami pupunta," the Blur said.
With the KaTropa stuck with a 2-2 record so far, now is the time to have a little sense of urgency Castro stressed.
"Siguro challenge na dapat every game do-or-die ang mindset namain kasi may tendency kaming mag-relax," he said.
