No shortcuts: Extra work paying off for Beau Belga

Extra work for the extra rice.

Beau Belga is enjoying the best offensive display of his eight-year career so far, averaging close to 12 points/game in the 2015-16 Philippine Cup, 1.7 points better than his 2014-15 Philippine Cup average.

The Rain or Shine big man says he is giving more attention to practice, and those little things are paying dividends.

Sinisipagan lang sa practice, yun lang ang sikreto siguro. Kapag nagta-tiyaga ka, you come early sa practice, mayroong sukli eh,” Belga said.

Belga notched 17 points and eight rebounds in a crucial win over the Alaska Aces Friday night, and the big man says it is one of those games where people can see the fruits of his hardwork.

“Yun lang lagi nireremind samin ni coach, wag kayong tatamarin, wag kayong magsho-short cut. Nakikita ko naman sa laro,” he added.

Philippine Sports News - Tiebreaker Times No shortcuts: Extra work paying off for Beau Belga    Coming off a loss to TNT earlier this week, Belga says the team has learned its lesson.

“Para sa akin, wag mo mamaliitin yung mga bago. Iba na yung mga bago ngayon eh, tulad nina Troy (Rosario) at Mo (Tautuaa). Iba na yung quality ng laro. Kahit sino kalaban mo, beterano o baguhan, kailangan seryosohin mo. Yun ang lesson sakin para siguro,” Belga shared.

As the Elasto Painters continue to gun for one of two semi-finals spots, Belga says he also enjoys the help of offseason addition Jewel Ponferrada, who boosted the Rain or Shine frontline.

“May tulong, since hindi na lang kami ni JR (Quinahan) yung dumedepensa sa malalaki. So nakakapagpahinga kami. Kapag kasabay ko si Jewel, minsan pinapakuha ko yung big man na scorer. May time na dedepensahan ko, may backup pa ako. So tatlo na kaming nagro-rotate sa bigs,” Belga said of Ponferrada.

Rain or Shine is once again a bullstrong contender to take the crown, and for Belga, it will start with how they approach practice.
