Kiefer Ravena on nailing dagger vs dad Bong: ‘Thanks for the belated gift’

Though he suffered a loss a day before his 27th birthday, Kiefer Ravena made sure that his week ended right.

Three days following a heartbreaker from Phoenix, Ravena got it back in stunning fashion as NLEX Road Warriors stunned TNT Tropang GIGA, 109-98, Thursday evening.

And it came at the expense of his dad and TNT head coach Bong as well.

“Always a pleasure playing against my first-ever coach,” expressed Ravena.

“Motivated to play well in front of him and ’til this day, he’s my number one critic.”

And Kiefer truly impressed.

Seeing their once 10-point lead dwindle down to five with less than a minute left, Ravena — who was shooting just 3-of-11 from the field — then took matters into his own hands.

Calling for an isolation play, the 6-foot guard decided to go one-one-one against 6-foot-2 defensive specialist Roger Pogoy. Ravena sized Pogoy up, then threw a sidewinder that went in.

Game, set, match.

Ravena ended up with 16 points, nine rebounds, and three assists. More importantly, he helped end the Road Warriors’ two-game skid to rise to a 2-5 record.

Of course, Kiefer would throw a slight jab at dad Bong.

“Love ya pa! Thanks for the belated gift!”
