Spitfirevakt compensates for its stupid Game 1 performance with a sudden outbreak in their Game 2 triumph over Meralco
MANILA, the Philippines – Simon Enciso was on time in great time to help Alaska even win his semi-finals against Meralco in the 2018 PBA Governors Cup and one of his main motivations is to prove his doubts wrong.
The Spitfire Observatory left 23 points on top of 2 rebounds and 2 assisted and acted as sparklers driving the Aces in a 100-95 victory in Match 2 of the best of the five duel on Tuesday, November 13th.
It was a big upgrade from its performance in the 92-97 Game 1 loss for the bolts on Sunday which saw Enciso limited to just 5 points despite playing for almost 33 minutes.
"Every game you try to find an edge. And many people were like" What happened to Simon? What happened to Simon? "He told reporters after the match.
"Of course, it feeds you motivation and fire to get out in the next game and prove people are wrong."
After scoring just 3 points in the virgin, the 27-year-old beat fire in 4 tripples to end 18 markers in the middle of the quarter because the aces had a lead as big as 20 points.
The balls threatened a comeback and trimmed their deficits to a whisker in the finale but failed with their steep efforts with Enciso who won the victory for Aces with two clutch errors in the last 2 seconds.
"I was very hard on myself and I knew I had to climb my game. Fortunately, my teammates gave me confidence and found me when I was open. I just hit the shot," he added.
Enciso also wanted to give Mike Harris, who wears scoring cudgels for the aces, a little breath of crimes.
"He (Harris) takes up much of the load on crimes and if he can continue doing what he does and we chip in maybe 15 or 20 points, it's a bit difficult to stop a team like that."
Enciso and Essen are trying to ride the speed they get when they meet the bolts in Game 3 Thursday 15 November at Cuneta Astrodome. – Rappler.com
