The fifth season of the OKBet-MPBL (Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League) was held at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City on Thursday, July 27. The game was part of the OKBet-MPBL (Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League) Fifth Season. Streaking San Juan survived Parañaque’s final assault and won by a score of 88-82.
These exceptional players from the San Juan Knights brought the team’s score up to a high level, which resulted in a winning streak.
Michael Calisan of the San Juan Knights scored 28 points, and Panganiban contributed 7 rebounds to his team’s total. Within the context of the entire performance. While Marwin Taywan has eleven points and four assists, Panganiban has scored 21 points, grabbed three rebounds, and handed out three assists.
However, Nikko Panganiban hit two layups against two charity shots taken by Joshua Gallano because he wanted to ensure that San Juan Knight continued their winning streak to climb up to an 18-3 record in the round-robin elimination phase of the 29-team competition.
In the meantime, John Anthony Umali of the Paranaque Patriots made back-to-back triples to end the 10-point run and bring the Paranaque Patriots within 82-87 with 41 seconds left in the game. This brought the score to where it is currently.
As a result of their defeat at the hands of San Juan, the Parañaque now have a record of 9-13, but Umali contributed 19 points and 5 triples to the victory for the Paranaque.
The club benefited from the contributions of Keith Pido, who scored 12 points, Paolo Castor, who scored 11 points, and Joshua Gallano, who scored 10 points.
