Laguna bucks slow start, escapes Paranaque for third win in NBL

Laguna overcame an early 24-point deficit and escaped Parañaque, 84-83, to cap the 2021 Chooks-to-Go NBL Chairman’s Cup Sunday games at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

Trailing 79-83 late in the match, Aces’ Jielo Razon attacked the basket and was fouled, making both freebies close within two with 25.4 ticks left.

Raymart Amil of the Pistons was then intentionally sent to the charity stripe, wherein he split his free throws with 16.5 seconds left, leaving Parañaque with a chance to knot the score, 84-81.

However, the Aces opted for a quick two by Razon. In the ensuing play, Laguna’s Angelo Rosale failed to catch the ball cleanly from the inbound, giving the possession back to Parañaque with 11 seconds on the clock.

But the defense of the Pistons proved to be the difference, not allowing their opponents a clean look at the basket to ice their second-straight victory.

Parañaque cruised to a 34-12 first quarter but the Pistons slowly got back in the game with huge second and third periods.

King Fadriquela carried the offensive cudgels for Laguna with 25 points, nine rebounds, and six assists, while Ralph Pantaleon played all 48 minutes, ending with 14 points and 17 rebounds.2021-Chooks-NBL-Paranaque-vs-Laguna-Raymart-Amil-Laguna-scaled Laguna bucks slow start, escapes Paranaque for third win in NBL Basketball NBL News  - philippine sports news

Razon led the Aces with 18 points, four rebounds, and four assists. Dwight Saguiguit added 16 points of his won.

Jayboy Solis came off the bench and chipped in 14 points, seven rebounds, and five assists as Parañaque dipped to 1-4, tied with Mindoro for a joint eighth place.
