    LOUIE Alas celebrated his 55th birthday on Wednesday but the Phoenix coach said the team never revealed any plans for a celebration prior to the game against NLEX.

    “Hindi naming pinag-uusapan birthday ko. Siguro pagdating ko sa dugout. Mabuti may dala akong extra shirt,” said Alas during the postgame press conference.

    Following its 26-point win over NLEX on Wednesday, Phoenix was finally able to celebrate Alas’ special day.
