Victolero: Hotshots Not Satisfied Despite Roaring Start

Chito Victolero, the head coach of Magnolia, didn’t need to go through league statistics or watch old game footage in order to be reminded of how little significance merely surface victory runs may have in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA).

On Sunday night, a reminder was given immediately before the Hotshots game.

At the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Victolero and his players led the Hotshots to a victory over NorthPort by a score of 109-91 to maintain their unbeaten record in the Commissioner’s Cup after five rounds of play.

As he was making his way out of the event by means of a mobility scooter, he provided a few members of the press with the following quote: “I always remind them that we’ve gone through something like this before, that this is only the start.”

Victolero’s speech was influenced by recent events and experiences.

In the end, it was the Batang Pier that handed the Hotshots their first loss in the most recent Governors Cup. Prior to that match, the Hotshots had started the conference with six consecutive wins by a significant margin.

The Hotshots were able to qualify for the playoffs, but their run was cut short in the Final Four by injuries and a Meralco team that was more motivated to win.

According to the coach of a team that has already won it all in the past, there is no way that a streak like this one can be indicative of a club’s prospects of winning it all in the future.

After that, Victolero turned to some mathematical reasoning to hammer home another point.

The competition is going to last for quite some time. We only have five games left, and that number could increase if we end up making the playoffs, if we’re really lucky.

After that, he continued, “This is simply 25 percent of our target.” When it comes to these eliminations, we won’t care where the wins take us as long as we achieve our objective [of winning a championship].

The maintenance of an even keel is of the utmost importance for Magnolia. And Victolero reported that the club is succeeding in doing so by striving for excellence.

“We are not happy with this. Still, our stomachs are growling. We still have the ambition to accomplish even more, especially considering how much our competitors have improved. You also have the Bay Area Dragons, who are 4-1,” he said. “You have a lot of teams.”

He went on to say that as a result, “we will continue to put in a lot of effort, particularly on maintaining our consistency on the defensive end.” “There are several elements that still need to be polished.”

In a highly anticipated matchup that will take place this coming Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, 2-2 Barangay Ginebra will be the team that stands in the way of Magnolia’s attempt to maintain their pristine record.

That’s what we call a ‘Clasico,’ and the players, coaches, and fans of both clubs are absolutely ecstatic. “I can’t wait for the game on Sunday,” stated Victolero with enthusiasm.
