Jalalon triple-double highlights Magnolia romp over Blackwater

MAGNOLIA continued to roll on Wednesday night, posting a lopsided 133-99 win over Blackwater in the PBA Governors’ Cup at the Cuneta Astrodome.

Jio Jalalon completed a triple-double with his 13 points, 12 rebounds, and 13 assists while Romeo Travis had 22 points and 12 rebounds in the Hotshots’ fourth straight win.

Magnolia also climbed to second place in the standings with a 6-1 (win-loss) card as Blackwater slipped to fourth place in a tie with Phoenix on 6-2 records.

Blackwater trailed by as many as 38 points and things turned from bad to worse when import Henry Walker was ejected for a second technical foul late in the third quarter.

“Before this game, we were worried about Blackwater. We know na ‘yung linalaro nila, sobrang taas. Kailangan naming i-surpass ‘yung effort at desire na binibigay ng Blackwater every game,” said Magnolia coach Chito Victolero.

Paul Lee also contributed to the Hotshots’ cause as he hit 19 points on 4-of-6 shooting from beyond the three-point arc.

Mark Barroca had 16 points and five assists while Ian Sangalang added 15 points for Magnolia, which opened a 34-18 lead in the first period and never looked back.

Walker had 27 points and 18 rebounds before his ejection, while Poy Erram had 13 points and nine rebounds for the Elite. Allein Maliksi added 12 points.
