Castro rues poor transition D, not his cold shooting, in loss to Globalport
ANTIPOLO—–TNT point guard Jayson Castro had the coldest hands inside Ynares Sports Center in the KaTropa’s loss 119-112 loss to Globalport in the PBA Governors’ Cup.
Castro went on a decent 5-of-12 clip from the field but missed multiple crucial shots in the fourth quarter when the KaTropa attempted to come back against the Batang Pier.
And these attempts were point blank floaters and layups that Castro, who finished with 15 points, usually makes.
“Everybody has off nights but I think our mistake was our transition defense because once they get the ball we let them start running,” said Castro in Filipino.
There were also some calls—or lack thereof—that seemed questionable for TNT but Casto would not comment on the officiating in the loss.
“We can’t do anything about it, that was what the referees called so we just have to focus on the game next time around,” said Castro.
The KaTropa failed to stretch their winning streak to three with the loss as they dropped to 4-3.
