Some games they won’t drop, but other games it will. But as long as the ball moves, we take the right shots, and play together, we’ll get the win.” Anthony feels that his team is slowly getting its groove after a 0-2 start.“I feel like we started off poorly with NLEX. We kind of grew and had a good game against Ginebra but fell through the end. Then we’ve been building on our two wins, and a lot of it is because of our chemistry. We have a lot of new guys and a new coach, so our chemistry’s building and it’s getting better every day,” he said.However, the tougher challenges are still ahead for the Batang Pier, and it starts next Wednesday against San Miguel.Anthony thinks GlobalPort’s performance against the reigning three-time Philippine Cup champs will dictate how the team will fare this conference.“They’re going to be the team to beat and definitely a barometer. We’ve got some time to get better, so we’ve got to keep working on our weaknesses and continue to get better every day,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ BI on alert for illegally deployed OFWs to Iraq 8th Top Leaders Forum assessed the progress of public-private efforts in building climate and disaster resilient communities Do not bring these items in SEA Games venues Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netHe may have shot the lights out on Friday night, but Sean Anthony said that the credit for GlobalPort’s 101-76 rout of Blackwater should go to his team’s defense.“We held them under 80 points and that was the key,” said Anthony, who ignited the blowout with his 6-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc to finish with 22 points, 21 coming in the first half, alongside seven rebounds, five assists, and two steals in the 25-point victory.ADVERTISEMENT Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH SMB stays unscathed, escapes NLEX John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
