2012 PBA Philippine Cup Roundup: October 26, 2012 - Oct 27, 2012

The Alaska Aces are now 3-0 (since October 14) thanks in no small part to Calvin Abueva suiting up and finally strutting his stuff in the pros. In his first two games, Abueva has averaged 14.0ppg and 14.0rpg. He has supplanted Cliff Hodge as the most efficient rookie in the Philippine Cup, and he seems to be the new it guy in the PBA.

It hasnt, however, been exclusively a Calvin Abueva show. JV Casio has also been doing well of late for Alaska. In the Aces current three-game winning run, the former Green Archer has normed 17.3ppg, 5.0apg, and 3.0rpg while shooting 40% from beyond the arc. Those numbers are up from the 7.5ppg and 17% 3-point shooting he registers in Alaskas first two games.

One cause for concern, though, is the injury that Cyrus Baguio sustained late in their win over Air21. Early signs point to a probable knee injury for the highflyer. If that turns out to be the case, then Alaskas run might come to a premature end.

Another team on a winning run is Petron. After losing 3 of their first 4 matches, the Boosters have won back-to-back games, the last one without former Smart-Gilas head coach Rajko Toroman.

Many have pointed to the peculiar bench set-up involving Toroman and current head tactician Olsen Racela as one of the big factors that affected Petrons lethargic start. Curiously enough, with Toroman out (he wasnt even present in the arena), the Boosters posted what was easily their most dominant game of the tournament so far.

Five guys finished in double-figures, with Arwind Santos and Jay Washington each registering double-doubles. The backcourt tandem of Chris Lutz and Alex Cabagnot also did well, combining for 31 points, 11 rebounds, and 15 assists.

Is this a sign that Toromans main contribution was plain distraction?

Game Recaps:
ALASKA ACES over AIR21 EXPRESS, 92-81

Calvin Abueva posted another double-double performance in his second game in the PBA, and the Alaska Aces went on to win a third straight match.

Abueva picked up from where he left off in his debut, finishing with 16 points and 12 rebounds as he helped the Aces to a 92-81 triumph over the slumping Air21 Express Friday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

Hindi ko nga napapansin yung stats niya, but he had another double-double performance. But I think there are better games out there for Calvin, said Alaska coach Luigi Trillo.

I cant remember the last time we won three, but I think that happened with Jason Forte as our import.

But Abueva wasnt the only one who came up with big plays.

JVee Casio, who missed the Aces last practice as he was not feeling well, stepped up and played steady basketball. He had 19 points on three three-pointers along with five assists.

Defensively, weve been working hard. In our last two games, we were down big, but defense brought us back. JVee made things difficult for Wynne Arboleda. He was able to wear the veteran down and that took its toll on Air 21, said Trillo.

With their defense working double time, the Aces were able to jump the gun on the Express en route to a 50-33 halftime lead.

Dondon Hontiveros and Cyrus Baguio finished with 15 points apiece. But Baguio suffered a knee injury late in the game that has Trillo worried.

Mukhang tuhod ang tama ni Cyrus. He cant even walk. Well have to get an MRI for him and hopefully its not serious, said Trillo

ALA 92- Casio 19, Abueva 16, Baguio 15, Hontiveros 15, Thoss 11, Espinas 8, Reyes 4, Jazul 2, Baracael 2, Laure 0, Dela Cruz 0
A21 81- Custodio 20, Canaleta 16, Isip 12, Baclao 10, Wilson 7, Taha 6, Reyes 4, Omolon 4, Arboleda 2, Atkins 0, Sena 0, Escobal 0, Ritualo 0
QS: 26-17, 50-33, 74-60, 92-81

PETRON BLAZE BOOSTERS over GLOBAL PORT BATANG PIER, 110-98

No Rajko Toroman on the bench, no problem for Petron Blaze.

With Olsen Racela taking full control of the team, the Boosters cruised to a 110-98 victory over the GlobalPort Batang Pier Friday night at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

Despite being shorthanded up front after injuries to centers June Mar Fajardo and Danny Ildefonso, Petron showed up relaxed and confident to notch their third win in six games.

I gave the players more freedom and that resulted to us scoring 110 points. But this game also gave us an indication that we needed to work hard on defense as we gave up 98 points, said Racela.

But thats a given thing. If we had difficulty defending our opponents, then we should also give them a difficult time with our offensive game.

Petron scored 17 points in transition and 20 off turnovers.

Arwind Santos, the most consistent player on the Boosters side, came through with a season-high 29 points and 17 rebounds.

Chris Lutz and Jay Washington contributed 16 points apiece while Alex Cabagnot and Denok Miranda added 15 and 10, respectively in a display of balanced firepower by the Boosters.

Petron led 91-78, but saw their lead trimmed to five in the final three minutes. But Cabagnot scored five straight points to weather a late rally by the Batang Pier.

What I like about today, we were running. I gave the players the freedom, but they need to make sure they will make smart decisions, kasi nasanay sila half court set, said Racela.

If they start recognizing which ones to attack or when to pull back out, we will be a more dangerous team.

PET 110- Santos 29, Lutz 16, Washington 16, Cabagnot 15, Miranda 10, Yeo 9, Pena 8, Lassiter 3, Mallari 2, Duncil 2, Sison 0
GLO 98- Manuel 23, Miller 15, Deutchman 14, Antonio 13, Vanlandingham 9, Mandani 8, Vergara 6, Al-Hussaini 4, Adducul 3, Yee 2, Guevarra 1
QS: 30-27, 48-48, 76-68, 110-98

Blatche expected to return to the Philippines and lead them at Asian Qualifiers - 4 days ago
Naturalized center Andray Blatche is set to arrive soon to strengthen the Philippines national team that will play at the Asian Qualifiers. Ever since first playing for Gilas Pilipinas at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2014, the 2.11m Blatche has been a major factor in the Philippines' rise in the Asian and World basketball stages. He gives the team much needed size and versatility, especially against other squads that may have a lot of size and physicality. National team head coach Chot...   [read more]

Kia sends LA Revilla to Phoenix - 4 days ago
Kia Picanto has traded LA Revilla (173-PG-89) to Phoenix in exchange for rookie Jayson Grimaldo and a second-round pick in the 2018 PBA Rookie Draft.
