“We actually lost the game on an offensive rebound by Sol Mercado.” Black admitted
Given the fact that the Gin Kings specialized on a three-guard line up, Black is expecting the Bolt to be dominating the boards, both offensively and defensively because they have taller players on their line up.
And after being dismayed by the Kings in the dying seconds of Game 2, Black said that the team will give importance on controlling the boards more, knowing that it was the rebounding that stopped them from getting the series lead.
“That’s the number one thing [rebound] we have to address in practice. Certainly, we would not be doing rebounding drills, but mentally, we just have to focus on the fact that we got killed on the board tonight,” Black said.
