PBA: Maliksi pressured to defend 3-point crown against loaded list of challengers

BATANGAS CITY, Batangas --- The three-point shootout might just steal the show once again in the main leg of the 2018 PBA All-Star Games. Blackwater's Allein Maliksi is set to defend his title against a loaded cast of challengers Friday. Last year in Lucena, Maliksi beat Ginebra's LA Tenorio with the final money ball. This year's joust has the potential to even top that exciting finish as the league's finest shooters go after the title. “Nakakakaba pa rin kasi siyempre gusto mong ma-defend yung crown,” Maliksi said in an earlier statement. “Ever since naman talaga yung dream ko makasali sa three-point shootout simula nung pumasok ako sa PBA. Kasi sa [slam] dunk hindi naman tayo makasali, lalo ngayon hindi na tayo masyadong makatalon, so sa three-point shootout na lang,” he added. Terrence Romeo hopes to regain the title he lost last season and if the TNT star manages to top everyone, it will be his third 3-point championship in four years. Former champion James Yap is also in the mix while Tenorio is back to try and finish last year's job. The rest of the participants are Marcio Lassiter, Paul Lee, Stanley Pringle, Matthew Wright, Larry Fonacier, Ronald Tubid, and Garvo Lanete. Loaded from top to bottom right? The Three-point shootout will be one of the side events at the Batangas City Sports Center here together with the Slam Dunk Contest and the Obstacle challenge. The 2018 PBA All-Star Games are presented by Phoenix Fuel with Phoenix Pulse Technology and backed by Peak Sports Apparel, Molten, PBA Rush-Cignal, Nature's Spring, TAGHeuer, Gatorade, and Rain or Shine.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
