PBA: Scottie Thompson caps off memorable, historical night for PBA

What should be an obscure and rainy night for most residents of Metro Manila has been rather historical in nature for the PBA. The league should remember June 20, 2018 as one of the more historical nights in league history. According to PBA statistician Fidel Mangonon III, there were three milestones achieved today in the two games today, namely the Phoenix-Globalport tussle and the battle between Ginebra and Columbian. The margin of victory for both teams were historical in itself, for it is the first time since Sept. 3, 2000 that both teams in a doubleheader had won by 27 points or more. Phoenix won by 27 against Globalport, 135-108, and Ginebra destroyed Columbian Dyip, also by 27, 134-107. In case you were wondering, the Sept. 3, 2000 games were a pair of playoff games, which were headlined by San Miguel - Sta. Lucia in Game 1 of the best-of-7 Commissioner's Cup Finals, which the Beermen demolished the Realtors by 28, 106-78, and Alaska reigning supreme over Tanduay, also by 28, 119-71, in the battle for third. Yes, there was a battle for third. It is also the first time since July 6, 2007 as two players finished with a triple-double. Import Eugene Phelps (Phoenix) tallied 37 points, 23 rebounds, and 10 assists, while dimunitive point guard recorded his 3rd career triple-double of 12 markers, 12 boards, and 10 dimes.  San Miguel's import Galen Young submitted 18 points, 14 rebounds, 10 assists in a 103-96 Battle for 3rd loss vs Red Bull, while Alaska's reinforcement Rossell Ellis posted 22 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists in a 113-85 win against TNT in Game 1 of the best-of-7 PBA Fiesta Conf. Finals. More importantly, Mark Caguioa moved up in the list of most prolific scorers in league history. The 38-year old moved up to 15th all-time in the scoring list at 9,931 career points after scoring eight tonight.   ___   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

PBA: Mark Caguioa is now a top-15 all time scorer, but it s more rings he s after

Wednesday night was a historic night for Ginebra Gin Kings guard Mark Caguioa. Aside from helping the Gin Kings to a 134-107 win over Columbian, the decorated vet made history by becoming the 15th all-time leading scorer in PBA history. After finishing with eight points in eleven-and-a-half minutes of action, Caguioa reached a career total of 9,931 points, surpassing PBA great Freddie Hubalde’s 9,927. Truly an amazing feat for the 17-year pro, but at this stage in his career, ‘The Spark’ isn’t too focused on individual honors any longer. After all, the 38-year old has had his share of awards, like a Rookie of the Year trophy in 2001, an MVP trophy in 2012, three Best Player of the Conference nods, just to name a few. Now, the six-time PBA champion is looking to win more rings. “Yung mga individual [feats], I’m okay with it.  Pero you know, when you’re ano na, [at this age], I’m looking for more championships before I retire. Just more championships.” A known scorer for throughout his career, Caguioa maintains that the points will keep coming, but that isn’t his main focus. “Those points, If I play, it will come but I’m not really after anything. So I’m after more championships.” Aside from already taking 15th all-time, Caguioa is also inching closer towards another milestone: ten thousand career points. The 10K Club is a select group of players that include the likes of Ramon Fernandez, Alvin Patrimonio, Robert Jaworski, Benjie Paras to name a few. Just 69 points away, Caguioa could reach that milestone before the end of the conference. But of course, if the Gin Kings want to play even more games, they’ll need to keep winning. Currently sitting at 4-5 and bunched up in the 6-8 seed, Ginebra has two more games left and will have to make sure that they win out. Caguioa maintained however, that his goal isn’t to reach ten thousand career points. For Caguioa, it’s all about the rings. “Like I said, it will come if I play with limited minutes. I will not really go after it. I’m just gonna try to win more championships.”  .....»»
