Finally 100 percent after fixing his nagging knee issues, Paul Lee is feeling fresh.

And it didn't take long for him to let everyone know that a fresh Paul Lee is a dangerous Paul Lee.

Magnolia Hotshots picked up big season-opening win over Alaska Wednesday largely because Lee was his old lethal self.

The former national team player made all but three shots from the field, scoring 30 points (11/14 from the field, 6/8 from deep) to go along with seven rebounds and six assists.

And he did all of that with just three days of practice.

"Feeling ko swerte ngayon araw so take advantage lang kung may mga open shots. Syempre kung may mga teammate na open, kailangan mo rin hanapin," Lee said on his performance.

"Siguro nakatulong din dahil fresh legs, alam mo yun? Wala rin naman ako masyadong ginagawa dahil kaka-start ko lang ng practice," he added.

After a bad ending to his previous season, missing most of the Hotshots semifinal series against Meralco in the Governors' Cup, Lee is just glad to be back to full health.

Now, it's just a matter of sharpening everything in order to make another run at a PBA title.

"Okay naman. Happy, very happy kasi yung pakiramdam ko ngayon, parang feeling ko kaka-graduate lang ng college eh," he said.

"Parang bumalik yung dating kong groove. Very happy, and thankful sa mga taong tumulong sakin dito," Lee added.
