PBA: Lee welcomes double duty with Magnolia and Gilas
Lee welcomes the double duty that should come with playing for Magnolia and competing for a Gilas slot.

After a dud in the Commissioner's Cup, the Hotshots are officially back to competing for titles.

Magnolia beat Blackwater Tuesday to advance to the 2018 Governors' Cup semifinals. It's the fifth time in six conferences that the Hotshots have made the semis with Lee.

"Happy, we have a chance na makapag-laro ulit sa Finals," Lee said.

Magnolia's resident hotshot led the team in scoring against the Elite, pouring in a game-high 22 points. It was Lee that buried the final two free throws to seal a 103-99 victory over Blackwater.

"Prepare lang kami ng maiigi," Lee said as he and the Hotshots look forward to the semifinals against either Ginebra or NLEX.

It was a big day for Lee as aside from advancing to the semis, it was also announced that he's included in the new 20-man pool for Gilas Pilipinas.

Lee welcomes the double duty that should come with playing for Magnolia and competing for a Gilas slot.

"Embrace mo lang kasi pag iniisip mong mahirap, lalo ka lang mahihirapan," he said.

"Ready lang ako lagi, hintay lang kamo ng call kung kailan start ng practice. Sa ngayon, focus muna ako sa Magnolia," Lee added.
