PBA POW Javi Gomez de Liano propels Terrafirma to surprise start


Terrafirma is off to a fast start in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup, and Javi Gomez De Liano has played a significant role in their success.

The sophomore wingman is answering the call for the Dyip early this season, helping the team secure its first back-to-back wins in a long while against Blackwater and NLEX.

In particular, he was red-hot against the Road Warriors, torching them for a career-high 31 points in a thrilling 113-112 victory at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.

Gomez de Liano shot 10-of-15 from the floor, including four from beyond the arc, as the Dyip overcame a 16-point deficit to defeat NLEX.

His effort raised Terrafirma’s record to 2-1 and earned him the nod as the PBA Press Corps Player of the Week for the period Nov. 15 to 12.

During this stretch, which also saw the Dyip secure a 97-87 win over Blackwater, the 6-foot-3 product of the University of the Philippines averaged 24 points per game, 5.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.5 steals.

Against the Bossing, he finished with 17 points and five rebounds while going 3-of-4 from downtown.

In two games, he averaged a high 58 percent shooting from three-point range, making 7-of-12 of his shots.

Gomez de Liano faced tough competition for the weekly honor, with contenders including Terrafirma teammate Juami Tiongson, the Magnolia trio of Mark Barroca, Jio Jalalon, and Paul Lee, and the Phoenix duo of Jason Perkins and Tyler Tio.
