Scottie Thompson also known as the “Triple Double Machine” way back in college made a mark on the PBA history by listing double digits in three stats categories. This is the first time that a rookie made this kind of production. Johnny Abarrientos is the first guard to have this kind of productivity under the same coach Tim Cone in 1993.

“Its really rare for Scottie to score that much cause he usually just passes and rebounds its really surprising for me.” Cone said in the post game interview appreciating the effort of his rookie in being the reason why they had this game won.

“Our assists stats looks good for us and you gotta give credit to Scottie, he has really brought us that sense of moving the ball for us,LA also and Justin and Sol and Joe they’ve been passing the ball really well and it became contagious and its a great disease for us, passing disease.” The most successful coach in the league is proud to say that the team has been running a perfect kind of offense where they try to find the best open man for a shot but is not confident that they will be in the finals yet as he needs to focus on their upcoming game this Sunday which might lead them to think about the finals.  Scottie Thompson Scored 12 points and listed 10 rebounds with 10 assists. The Barangay Ginebra Coach said that this triple double performance of Scottie Thompson will definitely not be the last.

Abarrientos to coach FEU Tamaraws?

After being blown away in their UAAP Finals series by Ateneo, Far Eastern University coach Bert Flores is uncertain on what lies ahead for the Tamaraws.
With the exit of several top guns, including former Smart Gilas Pilipinas members Aldrech Ramos and JR Cawaling, Flores said FEU needs to rebuild, especially its frontcourt, to be able to challenge Ateneo next year.
Also out for next year’s line-up are skipper Jens Knuttel, a surprise Game 2 starter, and Cameroonian Pipo Noundou, who played in the dying seconds last Saturday after an ACL injury
But Flores, jolly as ever, does not know who will start the rebuilding process of the team.
For his loyalty, Flores is going to be retained by the management but nobody knows in what capacity.
This early, former King Tamaraw and ex-PBA MVP Johnny Abarrientos is being floated to call the shots for the team.
