NLEX Road Warriors coach Yeng Guiao felt disrespected after Meralco guard Chris Newsome buried a jumper with just 1.6 seconds left in the game and the Bolts comfortably up, 104-90.

The result was a 16-point winning margin for Meralco and a 30-point game for Newsome.

Bolts coach Norman Black was quick to defend Newsome’s move, claiming that it is within the rules of the quotient system.

“We’ll just play by the rules. If the rules says that you have to win via quotient at the event of a tie, then we’ll try to score as much as we can. If they take that rule out, we’ll respect the game and not try to score at the end game,” said Black.

Guiao, while well aware of the system being implemented by the PBA, feels that the extra two points was simply overkill and totally uncalled for.

“You know, it’s still disrespect pero sa akin naman it was totally unnecessary at that point. Alam ko naman may quotient, pero that’s more than enough quotient for them,” said a dejected Guiao shortly after the game.

“At the same time, I did not expect it from Newsome. I knew he was kind of a good guy who’s going to probably understand a situation like that,” added the former congressman of the first district of Pampanga.
