Despite being at home, Jamie Malonzo still put on a show.
The former De La Salle University stalwart bested Ateneo product Thirdy Ravena and UP guard Juan Gomez de Liaño in an epic online dunk contest called Home Jam: Dunkers Only, Saturday afternoon.
In the contest judged by UP’s Kobe Paras and San Beda product Robert Bolick, Malonzo, who is in California, slammed an off-the-bounce windmill dunk in his third and final attempt to tally a game-winning 59 points.
Gomez de Liano had 58 points, while Ravena finished third with 57.
Malonzo was the top man from start to finish.
His one-handed slam tallied a 19, while Ravena did a beautiful windmill jam for early leadership. Gomez de Liaño threw down an off-the-bounce dunk in the opening stanza for an 18.
Everyone had a 20 in the second round.
All participants still went home happy as Malonzo also took home a gimmick award in best sneakers; Gomez de Liaño went home with the best prop when he slammed over his dad Bert; while the best dunk award went to Ravena after his sidestep jam.
This is just the first of online events ABS-CBN Sports will hold.
ABS-CBN streamed the show online as its franchise has expired.
