TNT will only get better as a complete unit says Rice Jr.

Playing only three quarters, Rice Jr. dropped 31 points on top of six rebounds, four assists, and seven steals.

If TNT scores a 21-point win against a streaking team while still learning how to play with a complete lineup in the 2017 Governors’ Cup then imagine what happens when the KaTropa actually figure things out.

Yes, the potential is scary.

With all of their players from Gilas Pilipinas finally back in harness, TNT absolutely dominated Blackwater Wednesday at the MOA Arena, stopping the Elite’s three-game winning run with a 117-96 victory.

While the local stars try to get their groove back, it was import Glen Rice Jr. that picked up the slack for TNT.

Following an unimpressive debut, the son of the former NBA legend played perhaps his best game in the PBA and it’s no coincidence that it came with perhaps TNT’s finest performance of the season-ending joust so far.

Playing only three quarters, Rice Jr. dropped 31 points on top of six rebounds, four assists, and seven steals.

“I thought it was a good performance. We’re just learning how to play with each other,” he said.

Troy Rosario played his first game back after a gold medal stint in the Southeast Asian Games and this outing was only the second for Jayson Castro and RR Pogoy following the FIBA-Asia Cup.

All three Gilas players played less than 25 minutes vs. Blackwater.

“We just gonna get better and better as long a we play and practice together,” Rice Jr. said.

“We won, that’s the main thing. I’m adjusting and my teammates have been helping me adjust and we were able to get the win,” he added.
