PBA: Could we see a Yeng Guiao-Caloy Garcia reunion at the Asiad?

Caloy Garcia and Yeng Guiao may have been coaching their respective teams since 2016, but we may see them back together at the sidelines at the Asian Games in Indonesia late next month. If everything pushes through that Rain or Shine's core will be chosen to represent the country in the quadriennial meet, the Elasto Painters management decided to tap the fiery Guiao to head them once again. Of course, the veteran coach had led the national team before as the mentor for Powerade Team Pilipinas, steering them to an 8th-place finish at the 2009 FIBA Asia Championship in Tianjin, China. For Garcia, he doesn't mind the thought of a reunion with his old partner, even endorsing him for the job if it does happen. "Kung sakali ngang totoo yung mangyayari na kukuha ng mga players sa'min, I think boss Raymond [Yu] wants coach Yeng to call the shots kasi internationally I never handled a team. So it's better to get somebody who has the experience." "Mas gusto ko siya na lang para magkabalikan kami." As for their 75-72 loss against Ginebra that had pushed the top-seeded Elasto Painters to the brink of elimination, the way they had bounced back after digging themselves in a 25-point hole boosted their confidence heading to the do-or-die Game 4,. The Elasto Painters are hoping to force a rubber match for a spot in the Finals against either San Miguel or Alaska. Garcia also praised Ginebra's do-it-all import Justin Brownlee for his efficient game,  scoring 44-points, just two shy of his PBA career high, adding 15 rebounds, six steals and a blocked shot on a scintillating 14/19 shooting clip. "That's the story of the game. Brownlee was on fire today." As for the last play, Garcia explained, that a flare screen was supposed to be set by Reggie Johnson but if James Yap decided that he was open enough to launch it from downtown, he was given the green light to do so. With the past three games exhibiting bad starts for the number-one regular season team, Garcia only could hope that they take the driver's seat as early as tipoff next time. "But really, medyo masama lang loob ko kasi three games na kaming bad start. I think we have to find a way to start better, to keep us in the game earlier, and -- maybe -- have a chance." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary.  .....»»

‘We have another chance’

ANTIPOLO---Doing things right the whole game for the first time this week, Alaska gave its confidence a huge boost and pumped life in its PBA Commissioner's Cup campaign after a 125-104 ripping of defending champion San Miguel Beer in Game 3 of their Final Four series at Ynares Center here. It was the highest scoring game in the series for the Aces, who forged a Game 4 slated Sunday after getting 24 points from the flu-stricken Vic Manuel coming off the bench and 21 points and 13 boards from import Diamon Simpson. "We got one [win] and that's all we needed [coming into this game]. Now we have another chance," Alaska coach Alex Compton said.
