So it’s all of us, we lost in the Finals.”“I think what’s particularly painful about the Finals loss is that you’re there. It’s that you’re there. It’s always frustrating. If you ask me, would you rather go to the Finals and lose or go through the 14-game losing streak and not make the playoffs? I’d rather be in the Finals.” LOOK: Joyce Pring goes public with engagement to Juancho Triviño MOST READ PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Is Luis Manzano planning to propose to Jessy Mendiola? Hotel management clarifies SEAG footballers’ kikiam breakfast issue Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netMANILA, Philippines—There’s just something about the finals that Alex Compton hasn’t figured out.Compton’s Alaska teams are usually in the top tier of the league and are considered to be one of the more dangerous teams.ADVERTISEMENT Compton’s first three finals appearances were all against San Miguel with one series ending in four games and the other two in seven.Of the three, it can be argued that the seven-game series loss in the 2015 Philippine Cup had to hurt the most since this was when the Beermen came back from a 0-3 pit to stun the Aces in what is now known as the “Beeracle.”Compton added that even though basketball games are still the same, in essence, whatever the stage, the Finals is still a different beast.“When you’re there, when you get your shot blocked, when you’re there, everything just feels more painful in a sense,” said Compton. “We’re in the Finals, so it’s painful to lose because you’re there and it’s like you have the opportunity and you want to grab it.”ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img SEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completion LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
