Black hopes to see a breakthrough game from Amer vs Ginebra


Meralco coach Norman Black is hoping to finally see a breakthrough game from Baser Amer after struggling in Game One of the PBA Governors’ Cup finals against Barangay Ginebra on Tuesday night.

Amer finished the Best of 7 series opener with just 9 points and 3 rebounds and struggled to find his mark from the field, shooting just 2 of 10 attempts.

He was outplayed by Ginebra’s veteran playmaker LA Tenorio, who had 14 points in the contest.

Black noted the importance of Amer in the championship series against Ginebra, seeing how former San Beda standout has struggled against the Kings in the past.

“We have to try to find a way to get Baser to break through against this team because he’s struggled even in the last couple of championship series that we played against them particularly against LA Tenorio,” said Black.
