Phoenix is the latest PBA team to bring in a former NBA player as import.
The Fuel Masters debuted former Cleveland Cavalier Alonzo Gee Friday in the 2019 Governors’ Cup against Columbian.
However, Gee’s presence still wasn’t enough to help Phoenix rise, taking a close two-point loss to the Dyip to further slide down the standings with a 2-6 record.
“It didn’t go as planned, we wanted to win the game but came up short,” Gee said.
“We gotta take this game and build on it, go practie tomorrow and watch film, try to learn from all our mistakes,” he added.
Gee shot 53 percent and scored 45 points for Phoenix in his first game.
But with the Fuel Masters taking a crucial loss, Gee would rather pick up the victory.
Phoenix will have almost two weeks before playing again and Gee hopes that’s enough to get more comfortable with his team.
“We didn’t win. I’d rather win, I’d take zero points with a win any day. We gotta get better, build on this game we just played,” Gee said.
“I’ve only had a few practices. We got 12 days off, I’m gonna have a lot of practice time to learn. I’m still not adjusted to the time zone here yet, just get a little bit more comfortable,” he added.
