The Alaska Aces just made a back-to-back victories after they have spoiled the return of Magnolia Hotshots Pambansang Manok in the PBA hardcourt, 103-80.
Aces guard JVee Casio turned back the hand of time as he rediscovered his deadly shooting hands from the field. Casio was 7-of-9 from the floors of the Big Dome and netted 17 markers.
Casio was named as the Bida Player of the Game with his sterling performance.
Aces import Chris Daniels also found his three-point skills as the Hotshots gave him room to take his shot. He punished their opponent with his 23 points while shooting 4-of-4 from beyond the three-point arc.
Though they didn’t won the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup trophy but Magnolia seems like in a championship hangover.
Their ball movement isn’t that sharp as they only logged 13 assists compared to the 31 dishes made by Alaska.
Likewise, their import John Fields still in his adjustment mode and only registered 12 points and 6 rebounds which is very far from the ideal foreign hired player.
Fields was pulled out by Hotshots coach Chito Victolero at the end part of the third quarter and didn’t returned back in play as the lead starts to get out of reach.
