Mac Belo still adapting to being a marked man in the PBA

Mac Belo isn’t losing sleep over his recent dip in scoring for Blackwater.

After averaging 23 points in his first three games, the rookie only netted nine points in the Elite’s 96-85 win against NLEX.

But the Midsayap, North Cotabato native doesn’t mind as long as his team comes out victorious.

“It’s OK because we got the win. The outcome was good because our scoring was balanced. That’s the important thing, that we got the win,” he said.

Belo also noticed that after his hot start, teams have begun to zero in on him on defense, with the Road Warriors limiting him to a measly eight shots in the outing.

“NLEX’s defense on me was good because they were denying me the ball. At the start, I was reading the defense, feeling my way, and letting my teammates do the work and that’s the reason why I had a low field goal.” –
