San Miguel’s Ross, Ginebra’s Aguilar reach milestones
MANILA, Philippines—Chris Ross became just the sixth player in PBA history to surpass 900 career steals after he upped his total to 901 in San Miguel’s 83-67 win over TNT in the 2021 Philippine Cup Wednesday at DHVSU Gym in Bacolor, Pampanga.
The eight-time champion finished with six steals in the game and he reached the 900-mark when he swiped the ball from Mikey Williams midway through the second quarter.
Ross then reached his career total when he stole the ball from Poy Erram with 5:06 left in the first half.
The 36-year-old guard, who is averaging 2.7 steals per game this conference, is just a steal away from tying Dindo Pumaren in fifth in the all-time steals list.
Barangay Ginebra forward Japeth Aguilar also climbed the all-time blocks ladder when he moved to 11th place, surpassing Billy Robinson.
Aguilar had two blocks in Ginebra’s 83-77 win over Rain or Shine to up his total to 628.
