PBA: Sumang on playoff berth for BWE: “Bonus time”
Sumang led the Elite in scoring against the Magnolia Hotshots, dropping 19 points. All 19 came in the fourth quarter (10 points) and overtime (9 points) and Blackwwater survived the Hotshots.

Super scorer Roi Sumang showed up for Blackwater in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Friday.

Sumang led the Elite in scoring against the Magnolia Hotshots, dropping 19 points.

All 19 came in the fourth quarter (10 points) and OT (9 points) and Blackwwater survived the Hotshots in extra time, punching their ticket to the playoffs of the Commissioner’s Cup in the process.

“Kumpiyansa lang talaga,” Sumang said.

“Sila Ray [Parks], Allein [Maliksi]... sila siguro talaga yung dahilan. Sakin gusto ko lag execute kasi yun trabaho ko, yung shoot parang bonus na lang. Maganda lang siguro nilaro ko,” he added.

With the win, Blackwater arrested a two-game slide and improved to 6-3 in the team standings.

That’s good enough for solo third place now and the Elite still have a chance for a twice-to-beat edge in the quarterfinals.

Being in the playoffs is all sorts of fun for Sumang for a number of reasons.

“Masarap sa feeling syempre, playoffs na,” he said.

“Bonus time,” Sumang added, with a big smile on his face of course.
