PBA Media Bureau

Charles Rhodes proved to be Star’s nightmare as San Miguel pulled off a 103-97 victory in the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The 31-year-old import churned out his best game to date, finishing with 29 point, including an awe-inducing slam in the fourth period, along with 10 rebounds, and a block, over Chris Javier and Allein Maliksi.

“The players know the importance of this game and I’m happy to see our import competing and showing his pride because he knows that (Tony) Mitchell is a terrific import who will dunk every time he gets a chance,” said coach Leo Austria of Rhodes.

“I hope he could sustain this play for our next games because I can see that slowly, he’s getting how it is played here and he’s also getting in the flow of our chemistry.”

Chris Ross also had his best offensive game of the conference, tallying 19 markers, four boards, two assists, and two steals, while also delivering the dagger drive with 22.6 seconds left to put the Beermen up, 101-95. – INQUIRER.net
