PBA: Robert Bolick leads stats race for Best Player award
MANILA, Philippines—Robert Bolick is in the driver’s seat in the race for the PBA Governors’ Cup Best Player of the Conference.
The NorthPort guard collected 39.9 statistical points (sps) buoyed by his 21.8 points per game average to lead all locals.
Bolick is also the top local in assists (8.8) and steals (2.2).
But despite his stellar numbers, Bolick’s case for the BPC plum took a hit after the Batang Pier missed out on a playoff spot following their thrilling loss to the Phoenix Fuel Masters on Sunday.
Phoenix’s Matthew Wright is in second with 34.9 sps while prolific TNT rookie Mikey Williams comes in third with 33.9 SPs.
Williams, the Philippine Cup Finals MVP, is second among locals in scoring, averaging 21.4 per outing. He led the Tropang Giga to the third seed this conference.
Rounding out the top five are NLEX guard Kevin Alas and NorthPort forward Arwind Santos.
Alas accumulated 33.55 sps while the 40-year-old Santos, who is averaging 17.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and league-high 1.8 blocks, garnered 33.50 sps.
