"Yung last [three] games, look to win kami tapos bahala na kung ano mangyari," --- Baser Amer.
Baser Amer went from zero to hero in a matter of days for the Meralco Bolts.
Amer scored a grand total of zero points Friday in a Meralco loss to Northport. Sunday against NLEX, Baser was struggling again, good for only five points through three quarters.
But then the final period came and it was Hammer Time for Baser, dropping 17 big points including a clutch, game-tying and-one play and the final go-ahead triple as the Bolts stunned the Road Warriors with a comeback win.
Amer finished with 22 points for the game, 17 in the fourth alone.
"Struggle yung shooting ko from last game pero nandun yung tiwala ng teammates at coaches ko," Amer said.
"Of course malaking bagay to samin kasi anim na talo na eh, ang bigat na sa katawan," he added.
Now at 2-6 after arresting a six-game slide, the Bolts are barely avoiding elimination in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup.
With three games to go, Meralco is going for broke as they try to sneak into the playoffs.
"Last [three] games na lang kami eh, so para sakin di na namin titignan yung standing," Amer said.
"Yung last [three] games, look to win kami tapos bahala na kung ano mangyari," he added.
