The PBA Commissioner’s Cup continued Friday night with Mahindra picking up an impressive 111-98 win over Globalport.
Meanwhile, here is today’s edition of news and tidbits around the association.
Augustus Gilchrist adjusting to complementing Mahindra
Gilchrist didn’t really get a lot of minutes in his previous clubs in Europe, and in the PBA where imports are generally expected to deliver a lot, it is an adjustment he needs to make.
“Preparation in the preseason, and you have to play more games. Just play more games and naturally you will get more and more conditioned,” Gilchrist said.
Gilchrist didn’t have to take much of the load though, as Mahindra had seven players in double-digit scoring in a 111-98 win over Globalport. But the reinforcement says he is ready to contribute more when needed.
“We have a good team and the goal is to win by any means necessary. If the game needs me to take over or go hard, I’ll do it but we are a good team, we have good players.”

Thornton doing stem cell treatment
NLEX head coach Boyet Fernandez shared import Al Thornton is currently doing stem cell treatment to strengthen his legs.
Fernandez said it was Thornton’s personal decision and the Road Warriors are in support of the move.
“We were just surprised when he came in he told us he went for stem cell treatment and he paid it on his own,” Fernandez said.
“Ang ginawa lang namin is we supported it. (This is for) the strength of his legs. And good thing he played well today.”
