PBA: Back-to-back wins for Meralco after stopping no. 1 Magnolia

ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal --- Power has been fully restored over at Meralco. The Bolts took down no. 1 Magnolia Friday at the Ynares Center here, scoring a 94-88 win in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup.

Five players scored in double figures for the Bolts led by two-time Best Import Allen Durham with 20 points, 17 rebounds, and 8 assists. Four other locals chipped in at least points led by 16 from Baser Amer. It was a tough outing from the start with no team leading by more than eight points. In the end however, the was Meralco's signature defense that allowed them to secure this victory. For Magnolia, their reign as solo no. 1 ends as the Hotshots drop to 7-2, now tied with two-time champion Brgy. Ginebra for first place. The loss also snapped the Hotshots' five-game winning streak. Former Best Import Romeo Travis led the way with a 25-point, 19-rebound double-double but local support wasn't abundant in this one. Paul Lee and Ian Sangalang were the only other Hotshots in double digits with 12 points each.   The Scores: Meralco 94 - Newsome 20, Amer 16, Hugnatan 15, Newsome 13, Hodge 12, Salva 8, Jamito 5, Caram 3, Tolomia 2, Lanete 0, Faundo 0, Ballesteros 0. Magnolia 88 - Travis 25, Lee 12, Sangalang 12, Jalalon 9, Barroca 8, Reavis 8, Brondial 7, Herndon 3, Simon 2, Dela Rosa 2, Pascual 0, Ramos 0. Quarters: 24-19, 43-43, 70-66, 94-88.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: With baby Tokyo, Lee inspired to work harder

Paul Lee has been playing well lately and now, he has more reason to be inspired for the Magnolia Hotshots. Lee has blessings upon blessings in the past couple of days alone. First, he agreed to a new three-year deal to stay with the Hotshots and then he welcomed his first child to the world, a lovely daughter with his wife Rubie. His daughter, who was born healthy Monday, has been given the name Tokyo after Japan's capital city. "Yun kasi gusto ng wife ko," Lee said on the name "Tokyo." "Napagusapan lang na favorite namin yung Tokyo sa Japan and dun din siya nabuo so...," he added. Against the Elite, Lee fired another 19 points on top of five rebounds and four assists. As the blessings keep coming, Lee is clearly just more inspired to play better. "Of course, first baby and then I got renewed sa team. Iba yung feeling na pag first baby so ayun dagdag inspirasyon for me to work hard kasi lahat na ng ginagawa ko is for my baby and for my family," Lee said. "Sana lang wag matapos," he added on his blessings. "Alam mo yun, work hard and ayun yung blessing to follow. Ayun lang." Being a new father though, Lee is expected to have some sleepless nights ahead. But he doesn't mind it at all. "Okay naman. Ayun nga sabi ko I'll do everything for my baby so ok lang yun kung magpupuyat ako. Part lang yun ng pagiging magulang," Lee said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
