    Deadly-shooting LG Sakers down Barangay Ginebra Kings in exhibition duel    

    Sep 9, 2014

    WORKING behind their crisp passing and lethal three-point shooting, Changwon LG Sakers took bragging rights over the Barangay Ginebra Kings after topping their exhibition match dubbed ‘Asian Basketball Showdown,' 81-76, on Tuesday night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    Import Christopher Massie won his personal duel against Ginebra big man Greg Slaughter as he played a big role in the win by the visiting Korean ballclub.

    The 6-foot-7 Massie scored 24 points and 14 rebounds, while issuing three crucial assists inside the final two minutes that allowed the Sakers to pull away for good, 79-71, in the final 38. 2 seconds.

    The 37-year-old Massie was later named MVP of the game.

    Korean gunner Kim Yong Hwan was the recipient of Massie’s two assists which he converted into back-to-back three-point shots that proved to be the back-breaker against a fighting Ginebra side.

    Joseph Yeo, playing his first game with Ginebra since being acquired during the off-season, buried a three-pointer of his own but it was not enough to salvage a win for the Kings.

    Ki Seung Ho added 21, including three triples, while pint-sized guard Kim Si Rae poured all 13 of his points in the second half for the Sakers, who had been training together as a team since April.

    Slaughter led the Kings with 23 points and 12 rebounds, while Chris Ellis and Mac Baracael scored 13 apiece.
