PBA: Magic BONOt Ken always ready to heed coach Norman s call

Meralco Bolt bigman Ken Bono says that he is always ready whenever the need arises for the team. The burly Bono scored in a game for the very first time this season, and scored ten big points albeit in a loss against the top-seeded Blackwater Elite at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum. Per PBA head statistician Fidel Mangonon III, it is the highest scoring output the Adamson legend and former UAAP MVP has posted in four seasons. Ken Bono ties the game at 88 for Meralco! Blackwater calls time. 1:05 left in the 4th. #PBA2018 • @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/oIMX8LpWRV — Philip Martin Matel (@philipptionary) October 5, 2018 Despite even not playing for the Bolts in the FIBA Asia Champions Cup, Bono assured everyone that he is always physically ready, anytime that coach Norman Black calls him. This time, it was Cliff Hodge's finger injury that led Bono to the playing court, putting up a much-needed offensive display in almost 11 minutes of playing time, including a game-tying jumper with 1:05 left in the game.  "Always ready lang naman ako pag binunot ako ni coach. Atsaka importante kasi sa amin ang manalo. Kasi nasa bottom kami ng standing. Mas masaya sana kung nanalo kami," the center said after the game. However, there was a downside in Bono's insertion to the game on the defensive end, which the veteran coach explained.  "The negative is, on the other aside, we had a hard time defending pick and rolls.  But on the offensive end, he really gave us an opportunity to be able to make some outside shots. It’s kinda give and take. Offensively, he did a great job and defensively, we had a little bit of a problem in guarding pick and rolls when Cliff Hodge came out with injury." Just in case the need arises once again, Bono says he is very much ready for the call. "Ako naman, ready naman ako parati. Nagpapakondisyon naman ako. In case na bunutin ako ni coach, ready naman ako pag tinawag."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»
