Blackwater’s James Sena was fined P20,000 for the flagrant foul penalty 2 he committed against Jeff Chan in Friday night’s PBA Commissioner’s Cup game between the Elite and Barangay Ginebra Kings.

Sena was tossed out of the game after the landing spot foul on Chan early in the fourth quarter of a game the Elite won in overtime, 108-107.

Chan failed to finish the game after tweaking his right foot upon landing on Sena while attempting a corner three-point shot.

No suspension, however, was meted on Sena as he even suit up for the Elite against Columbian Dyip on Sunday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Blackwater pulled off a 118-110 win to remain unbeaten in 3 games and retain the solo lead in the conference.

Meanwhile, Chan did not play in the Kings’ game against the Meralco Bolts after suffering a sprain in his right ankle.
