Ray Parks was first in the statistical points race in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup while CJ Perez and Jayson Castro were tied for second.
Two rookies and a veteran star led the statistical race in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup through the quarterfinals.
Blackwater’s Ray Parks, the no. 2 pick of last year’s Draft, led the league with an average of 37.2 SPs built around averages of 22.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 1.4 steals.
Columbian’s CJ Perez, the league’s top rookie, was just right behind with 35.1 SPs after leading all locals in scoring with 22.7 points per game to go along with 7.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and 1.8 steals.
Jayson Castro tied Perez with 35.1 SPs after the Blur posted 14.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.8 steals, and a local league-high 6.4 assists per game.
Five-time MVP June Mar Fajardo (33.8 SPs) and RR Pogoy (33.2 SPs) complete the top 5.
Unfortunately for the two rookies, their conference has ended already with Parks flaming out in the quarterfinals while Perez’s late conference surge wasn’t enough to push the Dyip to the playoffs.
Also in the top-10 of the Best Player of the Conference race are Robert Bolick, Sean Anthony, Chris Banchero, Mo Tautuaa, and Matthew Wright.
