2013 PBA Commissioner’s Cup

Meralco Bolts (118) – (116) Rain or Shine Elasto Painters

The Best: I’ll say it again — why isn’t Eric Dawson in the “next Gilas naturalized player” conversation? Two 50+ point games in one conference? Are you effin’ kidding? Plus 14 rebounds, 5 steals, and 4 assists? WOW.

The Worst: Beau Belga can be effective at times. Other times, he can be just plain entertaining (and nothing more). In this game, he was the latter. The starting PF for the Painters missed the potential game-winner in OT, tried to scuffle with Mac Cardona in frustration, and produced a big fat egg in 14 minutes. And he will be a PBA All-Star. WOW again.

Meralco’s Unsung Heroes: Dawson and Cardona were money here, but the yeomen like Jay-R Reyes, Reynel Hugnatan, and Vic Manuel were the unheralded valuables for the Bolts. That trio combined for 29 points and 21 rebounds!!!

Petron Blaze Boosters (87) – (76) Talk N Text Tropang Texters

The Best: Henry Sims outplayed Jerome Jordan despite this being a no-bearing game. Sims, in what is maybe his best outing so far, scored 22 points, grabbed 23 rebounds, got 2 steals and had 2 blocks to lead Petron in only its first win over TNT this season.

The Worst: Larry Fonacier continues to struggle in this conference. The Gilas standout shot just 1-of-6 from the field and produced only 2 points in 27 minutes of action.

Crackin’ Kraken: Man, if June Mar Fajardo can put together this kind of game more often — 17 points, 10 rebounds, and 2 blocks, shooting 7-of-13 form the field. If he can do that in Gilas, then even better! –
