Just like the regular road warriors in the city of Metro Manila, it seems like the NLEX Road Warriors isare stuck in a traffic jam and could not find any way to get through their destination.
With three more games to go, Yeng Guiao and his crew is on the verge of an epic misfortune as they are the only team so far in the PBA Commisioners Cup who have not tasted a win.
Last night was their chance to finally get the elusive win against another team who has not found the rhythm this conference but they once again fell short and suffered their 8th defeat in as many games against Blackwater Elite.
The score ended at 104 -98 in favor of the Elite who has managed to hold on to the lead against the fighting Road warriors. Elite held the cards early and held on to it leading the scoring parade each and every quarter. The Road Warriors tried to catch up but could not as they missed critical points after another.
The Road Warriors has a lot of work to do and I am sure they are aware of it being led by one of the best coach of the PBA, Yeng Guiao. Suffering humiliating loss after another may just be too much to handle for the management. Could we foresee a change of name, coach or management? It's obvious that a big shake up should happen for the Warriors. Take a look at some of the fans' comments.
