He’s used to taking big shots all his career from his high school days in Letran to college ball in the same school.
And he would not shy away from it in pro play, especially with his team missing a number of gunners due to injuries.
Rey Nambatac was on target as he took the big shots, lifting Rain or Shine past Blackwater, 85-83, and into the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Final Four at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Thursday night.
“Di healthy ang team namin, so kailangan mag-step up,” said Nambatac, shortly after completing a heroic role that sent the E-Painters to a return stint in the semifinals of the midseason tourney.
“Yung mga veterans namin ang nagmo-motivate sa amin. Sabi nila hindi dahil mga bata kami, hindi na kami pwedeng tumira ng big shots,” Nambatac also said.
