Lassiter shot 9 out of 16 from deep against the Elite, making an insane seven threee-point shots in the fourth quarter to put Blackwater away.
Since dealing with back spasms during their 2019 PBA Philippine Cup title run, Marcio Lassiter has struggled putting the ball through the hoop.
Fortunately, it looks like the best shooter in the league has regained his touch Friday, torching Blackwater in the 2019 Commissioner’s Cup as San Miguel Beer got its first win of the mid-season joust.
Lassiter shot 9 out of 16 from deep against the Elite, making an insane seven threee-point shots in the fourth quarter to put Blackwater away. Marcio finished with 29 points for easily his best game in quite a while.
“Personally, I was just at the right place aat the right time. My teammates were finding me today. Once I get one or two going, I believe I could string off a few more,” Lassiter said.
“It’s just the shooter’s mentality, just keep shooting that’s all, just stay aggressive,” he added.
While getting his range back is nice, Lassiter says he’s more focused on just playing well overall as the Commissioner’s Cup moves along for San Miguel.
At the end of the day, Marcio is more concerned about getting wins and not exactly getting buckets just for the sake of getting buckets.
“I’ve been having some tough games as of late, but I really just try to be in the moment and just play the game, make the right plays because at the end of the day it’s about winning,” Lassiter said.
“That’s what I really wanna do, just win. I wanna just to continue play well and just shoot good,” he added.
