Former Tivoli Milk Masters forward Allan Caidic entertained the crowd in Candon, Ilocos Sur with his high scoring output where he logged 142 points.
The “Triggerman” only needed two quarters to achieve that feat. He sank nine treys in the opening quarter and in the final period a whooping 37 converted three-pointers.
The 55-year-old PBA legend seems like that initially has no plan on swishing that many treys in their exhibition game against mayors and vice-mayors of Ilocos Sur. However, he was challenged by his former colleagues in the PBA to do so.
“Sina Gerry Esplana at Pido ang nagbuyo sa akin,” said Caidic. “Sabi nila, break ko raw ang three-point record,” he added.
Well it appears that he took that challenge and broke his own record like without breaking a sweat.
“Katuwaan lang ‘yun. Lahat ng pasa sa akin,” he said.
Caidic currently holds the most three-pointer made in just a game in the Philippines Basketball Association where he made 17. After 27 years, that record still a formidable.
Way back in 2010 when several NBA retired superstars visited the Philippines and played our PBA legends, Caidic’s shooting abilities didn’t passed the eyes of another sharpshooter Glen Rice.
In that game, Caidic entertained not only the crowds but also their opponent where he delivered 14 three-point bombs and scored 54 points.
