Lethal weapon

first_imgDon’t miss out on the latest news and information. The Hotshots have won their last two games, the other one against Rain or Shine, which prompted the Painters to make an import change, dispatching J’Nathan Bullock and giving Watson another tour of duty in Asia’s pioneering pro league.Watson played for San Miguel last year, failing to lead the Beermen to a Grand Slam most everyone expected them to achieve. He averaged close to 24 points and just over 11 rebounds before bowing out in the Final Four.But the problem besetting the Painters in losing their first two games is simply the fact that their core just came from national duty, representing the Philippines in the Asian Games in Jakarta where they finished fifth.Still, coach Caloy Garcia, who also assisted Yeng Guiao on the bench in the Asiad, thought it better that Watson come in and give the Painters a more explosive offensive player.“We need an import who can basically post up and grab rebounds,” Garcia said. “We also hope he can bring energy on the defensive end, too.”ADVERTISEMENT Perez boosts Pirates bid for F4 bonus; Generals scrub off Chiefs The Aces, meanwhile, hope to bump up their 3-1 record to stay in step with the tournament leaders.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew MOST READ Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Paul Lee is on fire, and the 6-foot dynamo has given Magnolia that fearsome look once again.Averaging 25 points in the last two games, including a 28-point performance on Sunday night where he hit the game-winner, Lee wants just one thing to happen when he and the Hotshots shoot for a share of the PBA Governors’ Cup lead against Columbian at Smart Araneta Coliseum.ADVERTISEMENT Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?
