"No, no, it's not an if ever, we're making to the playoffs. We're making to the playoffs," --- Kelly Nabong.
After taking care of business against Kia, Globalport's path to the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup playoffs is rather simple.
All the Batang Pier need to do is beat Phoenix next and they're good to go.
Win and you're in, pretty simple right?
"We took care of business tonight but it doesn't stop, eliminations are not over yet so we have one more game to get that spot in the best-of-3 [quarterfinals]," forward Kelly Nabong said.
"We just have to lock down on defense, we have to move the ball, make our open shots. Phoenix is coming up and they're a tough team, they're very aggressive so we gotta be locked in," he added.
Nabong, who finished with 21 points and 13 rebounds against the Picanto Wednesday, is pretty confident about Globalport's playoff chances moving forward.
So confident in fact, that he guaranteed that the Batang Pier will advance.
"No, no, it's not an if ever, we're making to the playoffs. We're making to the playoffs," he said.
"I mean, we have a young, good team. We just gotta keep believing in the system, keep playing defense, and everybody has to come to play 100 percent," Nabong added.
