One week removed from the conclusion of the historic 2020 Philippine Cup, the statistical point (SP) race for this season was as close as the games themselves.
After two months of high-level basketball, in the end, despite missing the last four games in the Finals, it’s Ray Parks of TNT who won the SP race with a total of 38.2 SP average. For the season he averaged 20.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists in 50% shooting at the field.
The returning Calvin Abueva was right behind him with 37.1 SP, while CJ Perez of Terrafirma came third with 35.7 SP. Another Phoenix star, Matthew Wright, came fourth with 35.65 and rounding up the top five is RR Pogoy with 35.64.
Barangay Ginebra’s Stanley Pringle got a big boost after their title run and barely missed out on the top five with 34.8. Teammates Japeth Aguilar (32.9 SP at No.8) and Scottie Thompson (with 32.8 SP at No.9) also made it in the top 10 which means all three are contenders to be selected in the “Special Five” that the PBA will hand out in the awards rites next month.
Completing the top 10 are NorthPort’s Christian Standhardinger with 34.6 SP, Fuel Masters’ Jason Perkins with 32.7 SP, NLEX’s Kiefer Ravena with 32.6 SP and Mo Tautuaa of San Miguel with 32.5 SP.
Paul Lee, Chris Newsome, Jayson Castro, Arwind Santos, Vic Manuel, Kevin Alas, Poy Erram, Ian Sangalang, Javee Mocon, Marcio Lassiter, Justin Chua, JR Quinahan and Robert Herndon followed the 10 men above as they complete the top 25.
Meanwhile, Dyip rookie Roosevelt Adams leads the rookies in SPs as he garnered 20.3 SP. In his first year in the league, he averaged 10.3 points, 8.1 rebounds in 39% shooting at the field and 37% shooting from the three-point line.
