PASAY CITY - Speaking briefly to the media after the TNT KaTropa lost to Barangay Ginebra in Game 3 of their PBA Commissioner's Cup semis series at the Mall of Asia Arena, team consultant Mark Dickel fiercely pointed out that the officiating of the game was inconsistent, something that which did not fall on their favour.

"I just thought the referee of the game [is] totally inconsistent tonight. I just don't see why we get double calls when we're driving to the hoop," Dickel stated.

Dickel was quick enough to say, though that he looks forward of having fair calls when they play Game 4 at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum on Thursday.

"Ultimately, I don't control that, we don't control that but I really hope we get a fair whistle next game," Dickle added.

Assessing his team's performance, Dickel admitted that the KaTropa lacked shots that would connect unto the basket which resulted to their loss against the Gin Kings.

"We gotta make some shots, play a little bit better and hopefully, Game 4 is different. We came a little bit flat, they played a really good game so you gotta give them credit. It's on us now to come back and play tough on Game 4," Dickel said in parting.
