Dagdag inspiration? Oo kasi gagastos ako after one year papakasal kami eh. So kailangang kumita -- LA Revilla
LA Revilla is extra motivated this season.
The Phoenix Pulse guard played an inspired game to help the Fuel Masters remain perfect, three games into the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup.
With fiancée Petron star Denden Lazaro watching the game at the Big Dome, Revilla pumped in 12 points and dished out seven assists in Phoenix’s 108-98 victory over Columbian Dyip Wednesday night.
Asked about his inspiration for playing well, Revilla had a simple answer.
“Dagdag inspiration? Oo kasi gagastos ako after one year papakasal kami eh. So kailangang kumita,” Revilla told reporters in jest, just an earshot away from Lazaro.
Revilla, a former De La Salle University star, recently proposed to the Ateneo de Manila University product. The couple plan to tie the knot next year.
Revilla shot 4-of-8 from the field and added four rebounds and a steal.
“Okay naman (ang laro ko), buti mataas ‘yung field goal,” he said.
With Revilla playing consistent, the Fuel Masters are moving on the right direction.
“Sana magtuluy-tuloy, syempre hindi naman namin mapa-promise or magiging 11-0, hindi naman yun ‘yung goal. As much as possible, one game at a time lang,” said Revilla. “Last conference, second nga kami, natalo naman kami sa twice-to-beat. So it doesn’t really matter yung standing, I think the growth of the team ‘yung importante.”
Phoenix will stake its unbeaten slate once again against Blackwater at the Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo on February 1.
