Marqus Blakely came back to Blackwater in a major manner as he drove the Elite to a 95-89 win over his previous group Magnolia that played without an import on Wednesday in the PBA Governors’ Cup at the Ynares Center.
Blakely recovered his spot from Aaron Fuller and exploited the nonappearance of Romeo Travis, completing with 21 points, 13 bounce back, and five takes to lead the Elite to their second win in five trips to the detriment of his previous group.
Legends were in abundance as the Elite jumped on the nonappearance of Travis, who dressed for the prevailing heroes Hotshots yet didn’t play because of a lower leg damage he endured last Friday in their match against San Miguel.
The every Filipino Hotshot endured their subsequent straight destruction and tumbled to 3-3.
The Hotshots just drove once in the wake of scoring the initial two points of the game. In spite of the fact that they stayed inside striking separation, the protecting heroes just couldn’t defeat the nonattendance of Travis.
Belo contributed 20 for the Elite while Michael DiGregorio included 15 points and Rabeh Al-Hussaini included 12.
Paul Lee conveyed the battle for the Hotshots, scoring 26 and counting eight helps.
