PBA: Game 3 of Manila Clasico is 'most important of the year' says Travis

Magnolia now has the opportunity to become only the second PBA team to win a series against Justin Brownlee and Brgy. Ginebra. After Monday's win, the Hotshots have taken a commanding 2-0 lead in the Manila Clasico semifinals of the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup. On the brink of a second Finals appearance this season, Magnolia is going for it in Game 3 set for Wednesday. "It's of utmost importance [to win Game 3]. That team is amazing, that's a great team, perennial champions. You don't wanna keep playing them," Hotshots import Romeo Travis said of the Gin Kings, the reigning two-time champions of the Governors' Cup. "You don't wanna keep giving them opportunities so this is the most important game of the year for us. That's just what we wanna do, you don't wanna give this team chances," he added. Since Justin Brownlee entered the scene, Ginebra has won three PBA titles in four conferences. The only miss was in the 2017 PBA Commissioner's Cup when the TNT KaTropa used a 2-0 lead to win their semifinal series against the Gin Kings, 3-1. The Hotshots are looking to do the same now, but preferably they win this series in three. You don't necessarily want Ginebra to go on one of those "Never Say Die" runs. "We just don't want to give them opportunities to beat you. They're a really good team and if we have a chance to beat them, to move on, that's what we're trying to do," Travis said. "We're not going to a game and say we're going to lose. We're going to try and close out the series the best way we know how and just keep playing Hotshots basketball, which is team. Team above all. Our new mantra is believe, and that's what we're trying to do, just believe," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
