PBA: Travis prefers Game 2 struggle over Game 1 blowout

"You win by 16, ou kinda get overconfident it's hard not to be, we're all human. This is perfect for us to bring us back down to earth, humble us and let us know that we have to work and it's gonna be a tough game," --- Romeo Travis.
Magnolia's two wins so far in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup Finals came under different circumstances.
In Game 1, the Hotshots started out on fire and finished strong to take a 16-point win.
In Game 2, Magnolia didn't get it going until the fourth quarter and won by only six points after holing the Alaska Aces scoreless for the game's last five minutes.
Despite everything, Magnolia import Romeo Travis prefers the second win.
"I think this is better. I'd rather win like this so we know next game that you can't get out and play any kind of way," Travis said as the Hotsots took a 2-0 lead over the Aces in the 2018 Governors' Cup Finals.
"You win by 16, you kinda get overconfident it's hard not to be, we're all human. This is perfect for us to bring us back down to earth, humble us and let us know that we have to work and it's gonna be a tough game," he added.
Halfway through the title, Travis maintains a grounded mindset. He knows the series can turn rather quickly if the Hotshots don't pay attention.
Until Magnolia wins four games, there will be no celebrations just yet.
"We haven't won the series yet," he said.
"I don't wanna say that I don't feel anything, I'm happy we're ahead but until you get four wins, it doesn't mean anything," Travis added.
