Expect the Phenom to Redeem Himself after Horrible Loss to Phoenix


Basketball is all about consistency and effort. If you exert a big amount of effort on improving your game to become a more consistent player on both sides of the game, you will be a big hit in the game regardless of your height or what position you are playing. 

However, all basketball players, regardless of how talented he is, are prone to having bad nights especially if they are known as elite scorers. And recently, Kiefer Ravena just experienced one of his worst games in his young career.

After leading the NLEX Road Warriors to 2 consecutive victories to open the PBA Philippine Cup, Kiefer Ravena was sent back crashing to Earth as his Road Warriors absorbed their first defeat of the conference after bowing down to the much-improved Phoenix Fuel Master, 102-95.

To give credit to the Road Warriors, they were actually up, 25-19 after the first quarter but the Fuel Masters outscored their opponents in the next two quarters before holding on to their first win for 2018. Balanced offense enabled the Fuel Masters to win as they had 6 players who scored in double figures, led by Matthew Wright who had 19 points while going 4 for 8 from the three-point line.

Kiefer Ravena had his fair share of the blame as he went 4 for 13 from the field while totaling 8 points after scoring easily during his first 2 PBA games. He did have 7 assists which are his usual numbers this season but one could only give credit to Coach Louie Alas who managed to find a way to shut down the Phenom.


Conclusion 

The good news is: he still got a lot of time to catch for his horrible performance and also got a big game ahead of him against Mark Barroca and the rest of the Magnolia Hotshots this coming Sunday. While having bad games is a norm in basketball, one thing we have seen in Kiefer Ravena even during his decorated stint in the UAAP is that every time he had a horrible game, his next opponent is probably doomed because the Phenom had always come back better.

Prediction: NLEX will win on Sunday.

10 Hottest PBA Courtside Reporters

It's a good thing that these ladies weren't ranked in this video. Not only will it be too difficult, it will also be too unjust.

As the games in the PBA start heating up and the country is getting all the more hotter, these PBA courtside reporters isn't at all helping and is keeping the PBA smoldering hot. PBA and TV5 has done a great job in aqcuiring these intelligent and attractive courtside reporters.
