Regarding TNT, Ray Parks has dispelled doubts about his ability to be a team player.
Parks went all out when TNT returned to the PBA Philippine Cup Final for the first time in seven seasons, beating Phoenix in the semifinals with a 91-81 win over Phoenix.
The second-generation star hit team highs of 25 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists in 45 minutes of play while making just one turnover.
“He has proven himself and proven that he is a team player, not a lone player,” said TNT head coach Bong Ravena in a mix of Filipino and English of Parks acquired by the team last season.
Parks is arguably the most consistent player for TNT in the playoffs, averaging 27. 8 points, 8. 4 rebounds, 3. 6 templates and 1. 8 steals in the best of five semi-finals.
Prior to knockout 5, Parks helped TNT fend off the elimination with a masterly 36-point, 6-rebound, and 2-steal foray.
“He matured. You can see in his game that he really wants to make his team look better. He’s still doing better, too, “said Ravena.
Parks said he didn’t want the time he spent outside of his family while in the PBA bubble to be wasted.
“We are here now. We sacrificed two months. We have sacrificed not to be with our families. This is really dedicated to them, “said Parks.
“It’s not easy to be away from them, it’s not easy to be in a bubble. We just wanted to make it to the final and the job isn’t over yet. “- Rappler. com
