Austria also issued a challenge to Rhodes.“For me, [Ratliffe] is the best import right now. Maybe, Charles can argue with that and it’s up to him,” he said. “Because of eagerness to block and to attack, sometimes he gets called for an offensive foul. He knows that Ratliffe is really the kind of import who you can’t take lightly, so he should step up because this next game is very important for us.”Game 3 is on Wednesday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Nextlast_img
