Even in the first game versus Rain or Shine, our energy wasn’t the best. So I think it’s something that we need to continue to work on — consistency,” he said.“We can’t have one game when we blow somebody out and in the next game we get blown out. It doesn’t work like that. We got to be consistent and if we lose, we lose, but we gonna lose playing the way that we play, which is playing hard.”Rice said the loss was still a hard pill to swallow for any team. But he added there’s no time to sulk as with only little time to prepare for Wednesday’s Game 2 in Batangas.“It’s gonna be hard when you lose like that,” he said. “There’s probably so many things that I would be looking at the film see what went wrong. But they were the better team tonight and I got to tip my hat to them. I guess they strategized better, they played better, they knocked down more shots, they defended better.“But that’s the good thing about the playoffs. You got to win best-of-5. It’s not one game and lost so we just got to get back, watch the film, we’ll talk about it as a team tomorrow. We got to figure out a way where we can strive to do and play better on Wednesday.”ADVERTISEMENT How to help the Taal evacuees Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles03:22The decision on the Maguindanao Massacre case00:50Trending Articles02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award MOST READ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
