MANILA, Philippines-Northport received a streak on Saturday night by whipping Terafiora 100-86 to share the lead in the PBA Philippines Cup.
Robert Bolik and Jamie Malonjo have redesigned Batang Peer as a one-two punch, stuffing the stat sheet that helped the club join powerhouse San Miguel Bear at the top of the pile.
Four more have scored double figures for Northport for coach Pido Garencio.
Everyone is happy with the practice. There is no problem with communication between coaches and players. Can you still hear me screaming? [in the game]? I am very relaxed now, “he told Filipinos during the post-game press.
Because the players already know what they have to do. I think we still need more players. We can’t do anything about it if some players don’t want to play for us. “
“It’s the most exciting team I’ve ever had in my eight years at Northport.”
It could be recalled that big man Greg Slater has been negotiating to keep the deal in progress, according to party officials. Forward Troy Ryke, meanwhile, has chosen to take a leave of absence.
Bolik finished with 26 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists, while Malonjo scored 19 points and 16 rebounds as the Northport Bresis for Powerhouse Magnolia, which will play next week on Wednesday.
Terafirma took 24 points from Joshua Munzon and Xuami Tingson.
Don Trolano was in the DIP game until the half-time of the third period due to a right leg injury. Isaac Go could not return after hitting himself during the rebound in the opening frame.
Terafirma, which has suffered its second consecutive loss, will try to crack the winning column during next week’s Phoenix Friday game.
