PBA: Fields feels Columbian can be an offensive juggernaut

Import John Fields feels that the Dyip have the potential to be a pretty interesting scoring machine, one that is more than capable to score not just baskets but wins as well.
Columbian replaced CJ Aiken with John Fields because the team needed more offense from its import.
Two games into the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup and Fields has proven that his scoring is practically second to none, averaging 36.5 points so far.
Fields has also proven that he can win, leading the Dyip to their third victory of the conference after taking down Rain or Shine. Aiken was the import in Columbian's first two wins.
"It was good man, the coaches said we lost focus in the last game [31-point loss to Alaska] which we did. It's good bounce back win," Fields said Wednesday after the Dyip's 104-96 win over ROS.
"Everybody came in focused and ready to play," he added.
As he works his way through the adjustment period, Fields is confident that Columbian can continue to surprise teams.
He also feels that the Dyip have the potential to be a pretty interesting scoring machine, one that is more than capable to score not just baskets but wins as well.
"I felt like I am about 80 percent. Me and coach, we always get together watching films, look what I can do better. We just working on certain things, fine tuning so we can be a good offensive juggernaut," Fields said, who scored 34 points against the Elasto Painters.
"There’s always room for improvement. I can read the guys on the ball screen better, when to drop, when to pop, I have my jumpshot working, that was good. It’s adjustment period for everybody. I still got to prove to the guys that I’m a guy that can play and help the team win games," he added.
