Farr still struggled from the field, shooting only 41.7 percent but he made his presence felt against the Road Warriors, dropping 24 points and racking up 21 rebounds.
In his first game for Magnolia replacing the injured John Fields, James Farr struggled from the field, scoring only 11 points in less than 20 percent shooting.
The Hotshots lost to Northport in that game, dropping them to 0-2 in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
Two days later, Farr was far more impressive and Magnolia got its first win of the mid-season joust at the expense of NLEX.
Farr still struggled from the field, shooting only 41.7 percent but he made his presence felt against the Road Warriors, dropping 24 points and pulling down 21 rebounds.
He also had four assists and three steals.
“At least si James nakaka-adjust na, this is only his second game in just four days so medyo mabigat sa kanya,” head coach Chito Victolero said of his import.
“But I’m very happy for him kasi kahit paano nakaka-contribute na siya,” he added.
As the Hotshots look to recover from an 0-2 start, the team is confident that Farr can continue to elevate his game just as the whole of Magnolia tries to regain its bearings following a Finals run in the All-Filipino.
“He’ll get better habang dumadami games niya,” Victolero said of Farr.
“Bumabalik na yung conditioning niya and nawawala na yung jet lag,” he added.
