MANILA, Philippines—Exactly a week after beating NLEX, Big Chill crashed back down to earth following a 63-69 defeat to newcomer Hog’s Breath Tuesday afternoon.

Superchargers head coach Robert Sison was at a loss for words moments after the game before finally coming out with something to describe what had just transpired.

“We were on cloud nine after beating NLEX, now we’re in hell,” said Sison as his team wilted under pressure. “What can I say? But I got to give credit to Hog’s Breath they played physical against us. Kami yung nagmukhang bagong team.”

Sison refused to attribute the defeat to his players’ overconfidence but would later say that his players just ‘didn’t step up.’

Mac Montilla had a team-high 16 points while Mar Villahermosa and Janus Lozada had 11 and 10 points respectively but all three missed potential game-tying triples with under a minute left.

“I’m not saying Hog’s Breath is a weak team but they’re a new team,” added Sison.

The Razorbacks, who won after Letran star Kevin Racal came alive in the second half, came in against the Superchargers fresh off a 55-81 beating at the hands of Jumbo Plastic last Thursday.

“I told my players before the game that if we lose to Hog’s Breath people would think that our win against NLEX was just a fluke. And it happened.”
