The NLEX Road Warriors may have won the opening game of their best-of-three series with the Alaska Aces but head coach Yeng Guiao is far from being satisfied with the way the game was officiated.

The 58-year old former Congressman particularly pointed to the huge disparity in free throws which favored the Aces.

“I guess the story of this game is just too many free throws given to the other side, and we couldn’t get fouls on our end,” said Guiao during the post-game interview.

The Road Warriors were whistled for 36 fouls, 11 more than the Aces. Fewer fouls meant fewer free throws as NLEX was awarded only 18, 14 of which they converted for a shooting clip of 77% while Alaska received 44 gift shots, making 30.

Guiao is not about to let the glaring difference just slip by as he plans to have a meeting with the league’s technical committee and ask for a review and clarification on the calls and non-calls made during the game.

“Sobrang dami ng free throws sa kabila. We will check with the office if it’s really that many, kung talagang ganoon nga karami,” the temperamental mentor added.
