“Parang seesaw yung nangyayari eh no — sila, kami, sila, kami. Magpe-pray ako nang mabuti, kailangan kami na muna tapos sila ulot, tapos kami. Mas maganda siguro yun,” — Arwind Santos.
Down 1-2 in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals, San Miguel forward Arwind Santos had full confidence in his team that they will just tie things up.
Series deficits like that don’t make them nervous anymore he said.
After Game 4 Wednesday, Santos was proven right as the Beermen offense was reignited and the defending four-time champs scored a rousing win.
“Oh di ba tabla na,” Santos said.
“Parang seesaw yung nangyayari eh no — sila, kami, sila, kami. Magpe-pray ako nang mabuti, kailangan kami na muna tapos sila ulit, tapos kami. Mas maganda siguro yun,” he added.
That will be good for the Beermen no doubt since they wrap up a fifth straight Philippine Cup title in seven games if Arwind’s latest scenario comes true.
As San Miguel slowly figures out Magnolia’s tenacious defense, the Beermen taking over in these Finals is a strong possibility.
Game 5 becomes all the more crucial now for Arwind and the Beermen. They look to take control of the series for the first time with another win there.
“Game 5? Hindi na natin pwede i-tie yan. Malamang may lalamang. Malamang kami na yun. Sana kami na,” Arwind said.
“Magpe-pray kami at magtitiwala kami sa bawa’t isa para makuha namin yun. Lahat kami nakikita ko sa dugout, gigil na gigil kami akasi gusto talaga namin maka-una, hindi kami maka-una. Sana itong Game 5 [kami na],” he added.
