Too much Dozier not a problem, but locals need to step up, says Jazul


After Alaska dropped Game One of the 2016 PBA Commissioner’s Cup finals to Rain or Shine, 105-97, Aces guard RJ Jazul says the Aces’ locals need to provide more support for import Rob Dozier.

Dozier scored 41 points on 18-for-22 shooting, carrying much of the scoring load for the Aces in the series opener.

Jazul says such increase in production for Alaska’s reinforcement isn’t necessarily bad, but the rest of the team needs to step up to give Dozier ample support.2016-PBA-Comms-Cup-Finals-G1-Rob-Dozier Too much Dozier not a problem, but locals need to step up, says Jazul Basketball News PBA  - philippine sports news

“Si Rob, ngayon heavy yung points. Maganda pero dapat mag-support yung locals,” Jazul said.

“Siguro (kung balanced) mas maganda. Hindi naman tayo magrereklamo na gumawa si Rob ng ganoon. Talagang kine-carry niya yung team, pero kaming mga locals dapat sumuporta. Pero we’re happy nakukuha niya talaga yung mga tira niya.”

Jazul, who finished with only five points on 1-for-5 shooting in Game One, also hopes he and the rest of his teammates regain rhythm not just on offense but also on the defensive end.

“Lapses sa defense rin talaga. Kahit panay score namin, kung makakascore rin sila, hopefully maayos namin tsaka syempre mashoot na namin yung mga open na tira. Ang dami naming open na tira, hindi shumo-shoot. Siguro papasok din yun,” Jazul added.

Heading into Game Two, Jazul says the Aces need to focus more on avoiding lapses to prevent falling to a 0-2 hole.

“Defensively talaga. Wala na sanang breakdowns sa start namin and finish. Okay naman yung ball movement namin eh. Yun naman ang mahalaga, lahat makakuha ng touches,” he said.
