Aces off to a flying start

By Jeric Lopez | Feb. 15, 2013 at 12:02am

Alaska coach Luigi Trillo is thrilled to see import Robert Dozier jell with his teammates and the Aces’ system. So far, it has netted them two straight wins in the young Philippine Basketball Association Commissioner’s Cup.


Trillo said his 6’10” reinforcement is slowly but surely learning his role and fitting very nicely with the system he is running.

“He (Dozier) is starting to come to his own. He is showing what he can do for us. Our guys are giving him (Robert Dozier) looks. He’s versatile and his demeanor is amazing,’’ said Trillo.

Moreover, Trillo thinks that Dozier is a nice fit to his teammates as he compliments them with his unselfish, yet assertive approach.

“The way I see his game, I think he fits into our system. He’s a good passer off the post, he finds his teammates and his teammates also find him well. The good thing about him is that he doesn’t force things and let them come to him, but he remains very assertive,’’ added Trillo.

Dozier, who dropped an impressive statline of 27 points, 14 rebounds and six blocks in the Aces’ hard-fought 85-81 victory over Meralco Wednesday night, credits his teammates for helping him get into his groove.

“My teammates are really helping me out. They’re making things easier for me with their energy and cooperation,’’ said Dozier.

But Trillo thinks that his Aces still have a long way to go before they reach their peak this conference.

“We still need to work on a lot of things in order for us to improve more,’’ Trillo said.

This 2-0 jumpstart is the franchise’s best in the post-Tim Cone era. The Aces and Barako Bull are tied at the top with similar 2-0 slates.

Meanwhile, a surprising start is surely a nice welcome for Air21 and another win today may hand it its best start in franchise history.

However, the Express (1-0) face a daunting task of taking on powerhouse and Philippine Cup champion Talk ‘N Text (0-1), who will do everything to avoid another defeat at 5:15 p.m. at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

In the second game at 7:30 p.m.. Barangay Ginebra (0-1) and Global Port (1-1) clash.

In its initial outing, the Express surprisingly handed the Gin Kings a 74-70 beating last Sunday to start its quest on a high note.
