The Alaska Aces turned in a terrific offensive performance as they torched the GlobalPort Batang Pier, 133-106, in a high-scoring Oppo PBA Governors’ Cup shootout on Wednesday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo City.
Alaska shot 51-for-92 (55%) from the field and 14-for-26 (53%) from beyond the arc as they flaunted their full offensive arsenal against GlobalPort, scoring 38 points in each of the last two periods.
Import LaDontae Henton posted 33 points, 13 rebounds and four assists to lead the way for the Aces but he had more than enough support from his locals.
Calvin Abueva scored 21 points on 8-for-12 (66%) shooting while Chris Banchero finished with 20 markers, including a perfect 3-for-3 clip from three-point range in a balanced showing for Alaska. Three other local players – Jvee Casio, Sonny Thoss and RJ Jazul – reached double-digits as well.
The GlobalPort side also saw some terrific individual performances as Terrence Romeo, Stanley Pringle and import Michael Glover all posted at least 20 points in the loss.
With Glover – limited to about seven minutes in the first half due to foul trouble – finally getting himself going, the Batang Pier charged back to tie the game at 76-all and eventually seize the lead at 78-76, both on baskets from Romeo. The GlobalPort import scored 19 points in the third quarter alone.
But Alaska, led by Abueva and Casio, responded with a 19-4 run as they weathered the GlobalPort rally and restored the lead to double figures by the end of the period, 95-84.
Despite the efforts of GlobalPort’s Joseph Yeo, who hit a couple of three-pointers, Alaska ran away with the game in the fourth.
Henton scored eight of the team’s points in an 11-3 run that pushed the difference up to 21 points, 117-96, after two free throws from the Alaska import.
