Star coach Chito Victolero said he won’t have any second thoughts on giving the ball to Paul Lee again come winning time when the opportunity presents itself.

“Yes. I believe nine out of 10 times, he’ll make it,” Victolero said in Filipino after the Lee muffed the potential game-winning floater in the waning seconds of Game 2 on Monday.

Lee’s shot hit the back rim as Star fell, 77-76, and San Miguel equalized their 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup semifinals series at 1-1.

“It’s a matter of one play,” said the affable Victolero. “Defensively, we were able to execute, so it’s just one play in the end.”
