The main objective is to make the playoffs, and then we’ll take it from there, he continued, “Move on na kami [we’re moving on] (after losing the Philippine Cup Finals against San Miguel Beer). Panibagong pagkakataon ito [this is a new chance]”

Getting the team back to a highly competitive form is the TNT coach’s first priority.

Reyes remarked, “We need to play a complete 48 minutes, and we’re not there yet.
