Fans applaud Scottie Thompson’s brilliant performance
Despite only seen 11 minutes of action, Filipino fans were still in awe of Scottie Thompson’s performance.
Aside from Ginebra head coach Tim Cone who had nothing but good words for the 2018 Commissioners’ Cup Finals MVP, Pinoy netizens also noticed his positive impact to the national team.
In fact, some fans were also clamoring about Thompson’s lack of playing time.

I'm just glad seeing Scottie Thompson play for Gilas. Never say die attitude meets the Gilas puso feels.

The Ginebra guard finished with five points, three rebounds and three assists on a losing effort, but the highlight of his game was when Thompson soared his way up to grab the rebound against Iran’s bigger players.
Fans are surely looking forward to see Thompson making crucial plays for Gilas, which may translate into the team’s success.
