ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal — At 4-0, Phoenix is off to its best ever start in the PBA.

The Pulse Fuel Masters, after a convincing win over Blackwater Friday, maintain their hold on first place so far in the 2019 Philippine Cup and look like an actual contender early in the tournament.

Matthew Wright, in his third year after being drafted by Phoenix, is taking pride in helping the Fuel Masters unlock a special team achievement in the PBA.

“Honestly it’s a great feeling, it’s one thing getting drafted by a great team and then just being a part of history,” Wright said.

“It’s another thing to start from the bottom and see it develop and start something brand new. I take a lot of pride in that,” he added.

While a 4-0 start in the All-Filipino is a strong indication that Phoenix is off to better things, Wright says they haven’t done anything worth celebrating.

Wright looks forward on how they handle the San Miguel teams later in their schedule but for the meantime,  the Pulse Fuel Masters will stay on their toes as they look to extend their 4-0 start even further.

“I’m very happy on how we’ve been playing . [But] I think we’re still far from where we should be,” Wright said.

“We haven’t done anything yet, we haven’t done anything worth bragging. We haven’t won a playoff game yet, we’re still hungry and motivated. I feel like we’re gonna be something special, we just gotta keep [going] at it,” he added.
