I don’t think it’s gonna be laid down for the other team, it’s come out hard. I expect it to be chippier,” Cone said.In a title series deemed to be a closely-contested duel, each team has managed to get one lopsided win over the other after a couple of games.Cone, however, sees Game 3 turning out differently.“Basically, the soundbites you’re gonna get are gonna be the same that coach Leo was talking to you afterwards. I think he used the word humiliating, I felt the same way today,” Cone said.“We got one blow out, they got one blow out so we’ll see what happens in Game 3. Usually, that means it’s gonna be a nice, tough game in Game 3 so both teams we’ll be coming out ready to go.”ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View comments Report: Disney dropping the ‘Fox’ from movie studio names Lacson: Calamity fund cut; where did P4 billion go?
