PBA: Brownlee expects big things to come from Ray Parks

Justin Brownlee has won an incredible amount of championships with different teams in different leagues since 2016. In one particular memorable run in the ABL with San Miguel-Alab Pilipinas, Brownlee won the title playing alongside Bobby Ray Parks Jr. The two of them crossed paths on the court again Friday, this time as opponents in the PBA. Parks Jr. playing only his second game in the big leagues, led his Blackwater crew to a stunning overtime win against Brownlee and his champion Gin Kings. Ginebra’s super import was not surprised. “That's why – if I'm not mistaken – three-time [ABL] MVP. I've seen him do it for the past 3 years in Alab even before I got there, I was keeping up with him and he was doing great,” Brownlee said of his former teammate. “I definitely expect big things for him in this league too,” he added. Brownlee says Parks’ size and versatility makes him stand out. The no. 2 overall pick of the 2018 Draft certainly showcased his talents against Ginebra, scoring 28 points, including 10 in overtime, to get the job done. “He got a lot of weapons. Has a great size for his position, can put the ball on the floor, can attack, can shoot the three-pointer, can get to the line,” Brownlee said of Parks. “It's very tough trying to contain him, keeping him from the free throw line and not the paint. He hit some big shots. He had a really good game and they're looking really good this conference,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Parks Jr. shows clutch gene in big performance vs. Ginebra

Ray Parks Jr. was absolutely electric Friday in his second-ever PBA game. The no. 2 pick of the 2018 Draft carried the Blackwater Elite in the 2019 Commissioner’s Cup, taking down defending champion Brgy. Ginebra in overtime. Parks scored 10 in extra time, giving Blackwater the cushion it needed to hold off the Gin Kings. He finished with a total of 28 points in the sensational victory. “I appreciate the coach’s trust in me, keeping me in the game and putting me in position to get the ball. It’s just great. Each game is just part of the motivation,” Parks Jr. said. “At least I showed one part of my game that you know... people say I wasn’t clutch last time with the free throws and now what? I made shots so now it’s just up to get better,” he added. Now armed with a 2-0 start in the mid-season joust, Parks says this big win against Ginebra won’t mean anything if they don’t get the next one. The Elite have another game Sunday. A win would mean a strong 3-0 start. A win also means that Blackwater will surpass its total from the Philippine Cup. “I love playing big games, and I love playing against great competition. Ginebra’s one of the best teams. Just having that crowd environment too is great. Today was just the breaks of the game and we ended up with the win,” he said. “This win won’t mean anything if we don’t win on Sunday. it will just cancel out. We just have to keep growing from here,” Parks added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
