Brownlee sees Jones winning Best Import award
Reigning PBA Commissioner’s Cup Best Import Justin Brownlee sees TNT’s Terrence Jones winning this year’s best reinforcement award after the KaTropa beat Ginebra in their semifinals series.
“He makes it to the finals, so he gets it,” said a smiling Brownlee Thursday night. “That’s how it usually happens, I think so.”
Going to the semis, Brownlee and Jones are locked in a tight battle for the top individual award, which the Ginebra import won last year after steering the team to the finals and eventually, to the championship opposite Renaldo Balkman and San Miguel Beer.
Brownlee leads the race with a total of 61.8 statistical points (sps), while Jones is a close no. 2 with 60.2 sps.
Brownlee leads all import in scoring with an average of 34.2 points while Jones is the top assist man among imports with 7.4 average.
Chris McCullough of San Miguel is a far third with 53.8 sps.
