PBA bubble MVP? Parks tops PH Cup stats race
MANILA, Philippines — Despite missing the last three games in the bubble, Ray Parks still emerged on top of the statistical race at the end of the PBA Philippine Cup.
The TNT guard finished with an average statistical point of 38.2 while Phoenix forward Calvin Abueva (37.1) and TerraFirma’s CJ Perez (35.7) came in second and third, respectively.
Fuel Masters shooter Matthew Wright (35.65) and Tropang Giga’s Roger Pogoy (35.64) rounded out the top five.
Pogoy sneaked inside the top five after his stellar showing in finals series against Barangay Ginebra where he had to carry much of the offensive load after the injury to Parks and Jayson Castro.
Parks was sidelined due to a calf strain while Castro dealt with a knee injury.
The PBA will name a “Special Five” to the top performers, who will be honored in an awarding ceremony, next month.
Meanwhile, TerraFirma’s Roosevelt Adams (20.3) led all rookies in the stats race followed by Meralco’s Aaron Black (17.3), Alaska’s Barkley Ebona (16.3), Magnolia’s Aris Dionisio (15.9) and Ginebra’s Arvin Tolentino (15.5).
