Baranay Ginebra San Miguel forward Japeth Aguilar switched on his “Beast Mode” during their match against the TNT KaTropa.
With his teammates struggling to find their rhythm, Aguilar took over to keep Ginebra in the game and avoid getting buried by Talk ‘N Text.
He might also realize that he needs extra lift particularly working inside the paint as his fellow big-man Greg Slaughter got sidelined due to an injury.
Yet, despite his monster game, Aguilar didn’t take all of the credits but instead, he applauded his teammates for keep feeding him with the basketball.
“Credits talaga sa mga teammates ko kasi most of the time sila naman talaga yung gumagawa [at] nag-execute ng offense namin,” he said.
With the victory, Barangay Ginebra is back at the top four and automatically got a playoffs berth.
The next game of the Gin Kings is on November 15 versus the Columbian Dyip and their final schedule in the elimination round is on November 17 against the NorthPort Batang Pier.
