PBA: Brownlee will trade 35 points for triple-double

The prolific import would gladly trade his 35 points for a nice triple double. Or anything close to that.
By now, everyone knows that Justin Brownlee can score.
Sunday at the Manila Clasico, Brownlee dropped 35 for Ginebra, leading the Gin Kings to a huge win over Magnolia in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup.
However, Brownlee shot 11-of-24 from the field and personally, the prolific import would gladly trade his 35 points for a nice triple double.
Or anything close to that.
"Having a triple double means you did a lot of other things on the court," Brownlee said after scoring 35 points on top of "only" eight rebounds and four assists.
"And I don't look at myself as just a scorer. I like to rebound, I'm a passer. So I think having a triple double shows more of my game," he added.
Regardless of his stats, the most important thing for Brownlee and the Gin Kings right now is getting wins.
Ginebra now has won back-to-back contests in the mid-season joust and has been revived with a 3-5 mark.
"Overall, it's our best game. Whenever you can win by 20 plus you know you can feel good about it," Brownlee said.
"At the same time you can't be satisfied, we're still fighting for the playoffs," he added.
