PBA: Big Beau steps up to local challenge issued by Bowles
Big Beau scored 22 points to lead the Rain or Shine offense in the win against the Hotshots.

Prior to getting injured, Denzel Bowles challenged his Rain or Shine locals to play the way they did during the All-Filipino Cup, when they finished as the no. 2 seed in the elimination round.

Against Magnolia Wednesday, Beau Belga stepped up to that challenge.

Big Beau scored 22 points to lead the Rain or Shine offense in the win against the Hotshots.

“Siguro na-challenge kaming lahat na locals sa sinabi ni Denzel before siya ma-injure na everybody needs to step up,” Belga said.

“Yung presence na yung import na nag-buwis buhay nandiyan sumusuporta sayo yun na yung extra motivation for you to play better,” he added as Bowles was at the Big Dome to support his team.

Another crucial factor in the win against Magnolia is that Rain or Shine took over 5th place in the team standings.

The Elasto Painters can clinch an outright playoff spot with another win. That win will have to be against San Miguel Beer later this week.

“Our next problem is San Miguel on Saturday sa Cagayan de Oro. We have two days to prepare, pahinga muna ngayon,” Beau said.

“It’s a crucial game for us and lagi kong sinasabi sa kanila na pagdating ng playoffs dito nilalabas ng player kung anong laro niya malapit na playoffs so wala nang dapat itago, buhos na lahat,” he added.
