NLEX Road Warriors head coach Yeng Guiao turned 58 years old a day after his team lost to the Magnolia Hotshots in a tightly-contested Game 5 of their semifinal series in the ongoing 2018 PBA Philippine Cup.
Guiao, who admitted that his fervent birthday wish is to win another PBA championship, remained positive despite the loss which pushed his team on the brink of elimination.
“Hindi pa naman tapos, at wish lang naman. Libre naman mangarap,” said a beaming Guiao.
Turning serious, Guiao lamented the missed call on former ward Paul Lee who, according to him, pushed Kevin Alas and eventually caused his injury.
“The first play, when Kevin drove to the basket, he was pushed by Paul which caused him to twist his knee. And it was very clear foul by Paul and it was not called,” said a now agitated Guiao.
“And right in the next play, they called a foul on Juami who was just boxing out. I think those calls set the tone for the officiating last night,” he added.
Guiao further claimed that he had already called the PBA office to inform them of the rampant missed calls in Game 5 that ruined all their chances of winning the said match.
