The 2019 PBA All-Star Weekend did not disappoint as fans in Calasiao, Pangasinan were in for a treat seeing their favorite players put on a show on and off the hardwood.
The All-Star Game was the icing on the cake for the fun-filled weekend as PBA stars took turns in strutting their stuff on the basketball court, churning out video game-like numbers in the process.
Today, FOX Sports Philippines takes a look at some crazy statistics in the said festivities.
PBA’s highest scoring game ever (355 combined)
Despite the lopsided score where the North team crushed the South team, 185-170, both teams were able to churn out a whopping total of 355 points in this game. It was in the second half where both teams caught fire as they tallied more than half of the final score with 191.
A total of 16 players were able to notched double-digit scoring performances with nine players scoring 15 or more points. Arwind Santos and Japeth Aguilar were named co-MVPs as they scored 34 and 32 points, respectively for the North team.
Most treys made in an All-Star Game (45)
With players today chucking up threes back and forth it’s remarkable that the PBA All-Star Game ended with the North and South team sinking 45 treys. The said number of triples have contributed to 135 out of 355 total points in the game.
A lot of players have been given the green light to shoot, at least for this game. However, it was Paul Lee who chipped in the most treys with nine en route to his 27 markers.
Ol’ reliables top-scoring for Team North and South (Santos and Simon with 34 markers)
While Japeth Aguilar has been the talk of the town with his high-flying performance, it was the veterans who led both teams in scoring with Arwind Santos and PJ Simon notching 32 points.
The two have shown their vintage form as Santos did his signature Spiderman dunk and Simon providing instant offense as usual. With their All-Star performances, it’s clear that they still got it and can play in the league longer than expected.
