Jeff Chan on ROS:
In Game 1 of the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup semifinals featuring the no. 1 Elasto Painters and the streaking Gin Kings, Chan had the hot hand, firing 21 points, 10 in the fourth quarter as Ginebra pulled away for the win.

Well, it finally happened.

Jeff Chan's breakout game with Ginebra finally took place and it came against Rain or Shine of all teams.

In Game 1 of the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup semifinals featuring the no. 1 Elasto Painters and the streaking Gin Kings, Chan had the hot hand, firing 21 points, 10 in the fourth quarter as Ginebra pulled away for the win.

Chan shot 60 percent from the field and drilled three three-pointers, marking his best game in a Ginebra uniform so far.

It's safe to say that the veteran sniper is getting more and more comfortable with his new team as his role gets better defined with each passing day.

"Masasabi ko lang na medyo kumportable na ako, medyo nakukuha ko na pero not fully. The other day nag-usap naman kami ni coach Tim regarding sa role ko, so medyo nabigyan ng ilaw parang ganun," Chan said.

"Parang ngayon alam ko na when and when not to shoot," he added.

As for facing the Elasto Painters in the playoffs, the team where he won two titles and one Finals MVP, Chan says those are good memories.

However, he's with the barangay now and its time to make new memories with his new team.

"Basta ako masaya ako with my new team now. Masaya ako na I'm with Brgy. Ginebra," Chan said.

"Masasabi ko lang, yung team na yun, yung Rain or Shine, I love that team. Maraming nangyari dun pero syempre kailangan mag move on. Kung saan ako present now, which is Ginebra, may goal kami dito," he added.
