With eight titles in his trophy, Marcio Lassitar can start setting personal goals. While San Miguel Bear is chasing the 10th PBA Philippine Cup title for the franchise, Lacitar has a number that he is looking for: 2 1,250.

This is the number of three-point shots collected by former TNT hotshot guard Jimmy Alapag in his career.

“I want to reach the top. That has been my goal ever since, “said Beserman late Friday after his second consecutive win of the season.

His opponent at Northport, Robert Ballick, does not have the luxury of side hostel.

That’s why the move to the recent Leo Awards, which honored the best performers of the previous season, has made it clear that the only goal for him and his Batang Peer teammates at the moment is a championship.

“The only thing we have in mind is a championship,” said Bolik, who had 26 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists in Northport’s 100-86 win over Terafirmer at the Inares Center in Antipolo on Saturday.

It was the second consecutive win for Batang Pier, who tied the Bearmen for an early lead share.

It was Bearman’s second win – a 100-92 win over the NLX – a milestone in Leicester’s career, becoming only the ninth player to make at least 1,000 triplets in league history.

Everyone is happy

“It simply came to our notice then [now]. So I’m just grateful and grateful, “said Laceter, whose four trays increased his total to 1,001 in 18-point performances on Friday and put him on a short list that includes Alapag, Alan Cadic, Ronnie Magsank, Al Solis, James. Yap, Dondon Hontiveros, Arvind Santos and LA Tenorio.

“Really honored and blessed, man,” he added. “You are talking about Hall of Fame players. Legend. It’s best to do. It’s something you can’t really take away. “

Unlike San Miguel, who really had to get it out with his pair of wins, Northport have cruised in two of their games, winning by an average of 13.5 points per game.

“This is our best team so far,” said Bolik, who saw his side coach Pido Jarencio as if seeking legitimacy. “We didn’t have any problems, we didn’t have any problems. We go to practice, everyone is happy. “

Jarencio later agreed: “Everyone on the team is happy now.”
