PBA: Lee after 17-point third quarter: "Maybe it's my night"

PBA: Lee after 17-point quarter:
Magnolia eventually beat the KaTropa by 22 in large part because Lee scored 17 of his 25 points in a pivotal third-quarter that turned the game around.

Down 12 to TNT Wednesday, Magnolia was officially in trouble.

But then Paul Lee happened and the Hotshots' 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup campaign was revived.

Magnolia eventually beat the KaTropa by 22 in large part because Lee scored 17 of his 25 points in a pivotal third-quarter that turned the game around.

"Maybe it's my night tonight," Lee said.

"I just kept aggressive. I tried to go to the free throw line para easy two points. Everyone played well. We committed sa gameplan ni coach Chito. Siguro maganda lang yung preparation namin. Feeling ko, narelax na yung bawat isa sa amin," he added.

Struggling with a three-game losing skid, it was crucial for Magnolia to click and get a win.

Import Justin Jackson was a huge part of that says Lee, especially since the Hotshots are already in their third reinforcement this conference.

"Mahirap din talaga, ayaw naman natin gawing excuses yung import, pero mahirap naman talaga yun," Lee said.

"Galing kami kay Vernon, tapos kay Curtis Kelly tapos ito ngayon si Justin Jackson naman. Kailangan talaga ng enough time para makilala namin yung isa’t isa. Malaking bagay yung chemistry dito," he added.
