Meralco big man Raymond Almazan is looking to carry over his stellar showing in Game One the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup Finals. But he is also hoping it will result in a win next time.

Almazan finished the Best of 7 series opener on Tuesday night with a double-double 20 points and 13 rebounds.

However, his performance went down the drain as the Bolts dropped bowed to Ginebra, 91-87.

“Hindi ko iniisip kung maganda laro ko or what eh. Basta manalo kami. ‘Yun naman ang main goal eh. Sana madala ko uli sa next game ‘yung rhythm at ‘yung confidence ko, [sana] ganun pa rin,” Almazan said after the game.

“Sa totoo lang, ‘yung kaba ko, ginawa kong motivation. Sabi nga ni coach, hindi mo alam kung kailan ang susunod eh. To be honest, bata pa lang ako, sinasabi ko na, lahat ng taga sa amin, Ginebra kaya kailangan ko magpakitang gilas for the whole team,” said Almazan.

“Bawi na lang kami sa Game Two. ‘Yun lang masasabi ko,” he added.
