In a rare occurrence, Baser Amer laid a big fat egg on Friday.
The 6-foot point guard played 27 minutes and 55 seconds versus the NorthPort Batang Pier, but he went scoreless on seven shots. However, he made up for it with five assists, a rebound, a steal, and a block.
Amer definitely caught lots of attention with the way he performed on offense. The last time the product of the San Beda Red Lions program went zero in a game was back in the 2017 Governors’ Cup Finals’ Game Three versus Ginebra.
But for Amer, what’s more important for the Bolts is the production of not one player but of all of them, as Meralco lost to NorthPort, 94-99 – their sixth straight defeat in the 2018 edition of the season-ending tilt.
“We need to play talaga. Kailangan naming mag-step up … Hindi lang si [Allen] Durham maganda lagi dapat ang game. Kaming lahat,” said Amer, as Durham had 34 points, 19 boards, and seven dimes in the loss.
“Kasi nilalatag naman ng lahat ang game plan ng mga coaches, especially coach Norman [Black]. Talagang nagdedepende sa amin kung susundin namin o hindi.”
But aside from team effort, Amer wants to see more execution from the Bolts – who have now gone to 1-6 – as it will definitely play a huge factor in their last four games in the eliminations.
“Hindi kami nag-uusap sa loob. Yung depensa namin … Hindi namin nae-execute ng maayos. Kasi yun nga, mga coaches, sila gumagawa ng game plan. Defense and offense,” he said.
“It’s a matter of us talaga kung susundin namin.”
