Che'Lu Bar and Grill eyes 2-0 series lead

Che'Lu Bar and Grill enoys momentum when it takes on Go for Gold in Game 2 of the 2018 PBA D-League Foundation Cup Finals Tuesday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

The Revellers took Game 1, 100-96, as they continue to dominate the Scratchers this conference.

And for coach Stevenson Tiu, that come-from-behind win just boosts his side's morale as Che'Lu closes in on the title.

"Yun ang mindset ng players namin, na tinalo na namin sila ng dalawang beses. Not now. Championship na ito," he said as his side seeks to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the 5 p.m. game.

Jeff Viernes remains as deadly as ever for the Revellers, but he's not alone with Jessie Collado and JayR Taganas providing him the needed support.

However, all hope is not lost for Go for Gold yet.

Jai Reyes maintains his belief on his side's capability to bounce back and make this series a virtual best-of-three.

"This is not a three-game series, this is a five-game series. So Game 1 is just one game. Ang problema lang, ang sakit ng talo na ito. The positive side is alam namin na kaya namin sila lamangan ng malaki," he said.

Behind Reyes and Gab Banal, the Scratchers were able to build a 15-point first half lead before faltering in the end game.

They'd like to finish the job off this time out.
