PBA: June Mar downplays monster 40-point game in win
In 40 minutes, June Mar shot 14/15 from the field for 40 points, leading the Beermen to their fourth straight win and another playoff appearance in the All-Filipino.

June Mar Fajardo was feasting Sunday against Northport, putting up a season-high in another good win by San Miguel Beer.

In 40 minutes, June Mar shot 14/15 from the field for 40 points, leading the Beermen to their fourth straight win and another playoff appearance in the All-Filipino.

The reigning five-time MVP dropped 28 in the second half, 14 each in the third and fourth periods. For good measure, Fajardo also grabbed 19 rebounds.

Just another day in the office for the Kraken.

“Napa-ganda lang yun nilaro namin,” Fajardo said.

“Credit sa mga teammates ko, buti nai-pasok ko yung mag tira,” he added.

Despite playing a near-perfect game, Fajardo insists it was not easy.

After a slow first half, June Mar turned it up in the second, matching and eventually outplaying fellow former top pick Mo Tautuaa from Northport.

It was a good matchup from the former no. 1 picks and June Mar just happened to come out on top.

“Buti nanalo kami ngayon. Maganda nilaro namin overall. Yung first half lang medyo sloppy kami,” he said.

“Nahirapan din ako, ang lalaki kasi and ang bibigat din nila. Buti nga nai-panalo. Hinahanap din nila ako sa opensa eh, kailangan kong suklian yung tiwala nila sakin,” Fajardo added.
