Kia Carnival shocked defending champion Purefoods Star Hotshots, 95-84, to earn their second win in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Commissioner’s Cup on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum.
Puerto Rican import Peter John Ramos nailed 32 points while LA Revilla contributed 18 for Kia, which improved to 2-4 mark. Eight-division world boxing champion Manny Pacquiao scored his first point in the league via split free-throw.
“Ipinakita ng mga players na naglaro ‘yung execution ng plays sa practice. Habang hindi pa nagsta-start training ko pwede pa akong maglaro at magfocus sa PBA,” said Pacquiao. JOSEF T. RAMOS
