Justin Brownlee tipped his hat to the Beermen, who featured five players that tallied 20 points or more.
With a 26.5-point margin of victory between the two teams in the first two games of the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup Finals, it has not been a pretty sight to see for the avid basketball fan.
For Justin Brownlee, he shares the same sentiments with coach Tim Cone, as he hopes that both teams can deliver a close Game 3 on Wednesday.
"But just from the beginning of the series, we expect it to be hard, tough, and we expect every game to be close," Brownlee said after the game.
The do-it-all forward, who scored 42 points in Game 1, tallied 29 in the 134-109 loss, but again filled the stat sheets with six rebounds, five assists, three steals, and a blocked shot before fouling out with 3:56 left in the game.
Brownlee also tipped his hat to the Beermen, who featured five players that scored 20 points or more in the series-tying win.
"Man, the defending champs happened. They came out and played tough, played very hard and tonight showed why theyre winning a lot of championships in the past."
Being down by as huge as 31 points, 46-77, the 6'5 swingman pointed at frustration against the continuing offensive attack, which just did not stop, leading to fouls on his end.
Just before closing his interview with the press, Brownlee gave his expectations for the upcoming third game, Wednesday evening.
"The only thing we expect is to come out with a one-point win. We know from hereon, its gonna be tough because its not gonna be easier."
