PBA: First win offers positive boost for NLEX says Mitchell
“All these guys have good spirits. Nobody wants to lose so coming into everyday, practicing, sometimes you’re gonna feel down and sometimes you’re not. But at the end of the day, we just wanted change and be positive and that’s what we did today.” — Tony Mitchell.

It took them a while but the Road Warriors finally got that elusive first win in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

NLEX managed to fight off Meralco Wednesday, improving to 1-6 in the team standings.

Enduring through six straight losses was a drag but the Road Warriors just had to stay positive and believe in each other.

“It’s not hard, you just gotta have heart,” import Tony Mitchell said of the team’s six-game slump that came before this win.

“All these guys have good spirits. Nobody wants to lose so coming into everyday, practicing, sometimes you’re gonna feel down and sometimes you’re not. But at the end of the day, we just wanted change and be positive and that’s what we did today,” he added.

NLEX’s first win of the Commissioner’s Cup has been a long time coming.

Now that the Road Warriors finally got that first one to go, they’re focused on staying positive moving forward.

“I can’t even put it to words pretty much. I feel like it was a team effort... Jericho [Cruz] helps so much, you know what I mean? And with coach Yeng back, it was good to just get that first win and change the momentum, change the morale of our team, just be positive,” Mitchell said.

“We’ll take this win and keep going forward, keep building,” he said.
