The streak is still on for the surging Blackwater Elite as they pound the Columbian Dyip in Araneta Coliseum, 118-100.
Just like the family name of Elite’s head coach Aris Dimaunahan, it looks like he don’t want any team overtakes them in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup standings as they owned the top spot with 3-0 slate.
Coach Johnedel Cardel of Columbian is now part of the win list of the Blackwater interim coach. The others are grand slam coaches, Tim Cone and Norman Black.
Bobby Ray Parks Jr., once again logged another stellar performance and his third straight 20-point outing.
The second overall pick of the 2018 PBA Draft registered 23 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. For the second straight time he was named as the Bida Player of the Game.
Blackwater import Alex Stepheson continue to be a beast in the paint as he scored 26 points and 21 rebounds.
Columbian’s top pick rookie CJ Perez tried to match Parks Jr., performance but still failed to deliver victory for his squad.
Perez had 17 points and 7 rebounds while their import Kyle Barone got 21 points and 14 rebounds in a losing effort.
Columbian Dyip drops to 0-3 slate and most likely a major adjustment is needed if they wanted to salvage their second conference campaign.
