ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal --- The Beast 2.0 wasn't celebrating his 30th birthday with an L.
Submitting his second straight double-double performance, Calvin Abueva was once again a key part in yet another Alaska victory.
Abueva, who now sports jersey no. 88, dropped 12 points and 12 rebounds in the Aces' overtime victory over Globalport Sunday at the Ynares Center here. It was Alaska's 6th straight win.
Despite being down 13 in the second half, the Beast says no way the Aces were taking that loss to the Batang Pier.
"Actually, binigay Niya na to," Abueva said.
"Talagang binigay na namin lahat dito sa game na to, sana magtuluy-tuloy pa," he added.
After dealing with personal problems the past couple of weeks, Abueva only has a couple of wishes for his birthday.
"Birthday wish ko, maging buo akong tao. Mapakita ko na nakatayo ako sa sarili kong paa, walang iniisip, walang kung ano-ano man," he said.
"Ang importante makasama ko yung mga anak ko, kahit dito man lang sa birthday ko. Pero baka sometime next week," Abueva added.
