1Bataan survives Bulanadi’s storm, snaps Basilan-Jumbo Plastic’s six-game streak

BALANGA, BATAAN – 1Bataan-Camaya Coast weathered Allyn Bulanadi’s fourth quarter explosion to fend off the Basilan-Jumbo Plastic and take a 91-83 triumph in the 2019-20 Chooks-to-Go/MPBL Lakan Cup, Thursday at the Bataan People’s Center here.

Powered by a 24-point third quarter, the Risers entered the final period with a huge 67-47 cushion.

Behind Irven Palencia and Allyn Bulanadi, the Jumbo Plastic-backed Basilan trimmed the 20-point lead down to 12 points, 67-79.

Bulanadi then took over, scoring Basilan’s last 16 points to put his side within striking distance, 83-89, with 24 ticks left in the game.

It all went for naught, though, as Joseph Nalos went 2-for-2 in the charity stripe in the ensuing play to extend Bataan’s advantage to eight points with 20.6 remaining.

Basilan could not get a clear shot as the buzzer sounded.

“I was really worried about him [Bulanadi], kasi when I was watching the tapes ‘di ko alam kung saan yung weakness niya. Pero buti nung dulo na lang, if it was in the earlier part baka hindi kami nagkaroon ng cushion,” said Risers head coach Jonas Villanueva on Bulanadi’s fourth quarter explosion.

With the victory, the Risers remained at the seventh spot of the Northern Division with a 15-10 standing while also snapping Basilan’s six-game winning streak in the process.

John Villarias paced Bataan with 17 points, six assists, and six rebounds while Chito Jaime and Reed Juntilla added 13 and 12 markers, respectively.

On the other hand, Bulanadi — who scored 23 points in the fourth period alone — finished the game with 26 points on a 7-of-19 shooting clip for Basilan.
