Maliksi’s scoring prowess delivering results for Blackwater

Allein Maliksi has made a name for himself as a reliable scorer—never gun shy and always ready to shoot.

And Maliksi has been everything the Elite had hoped for him to be when they acquired him from Star in a four-player trade a little over two weeks ago.

“Maliksi is indeed a big help on the offensive end. Only in his third game, still getting confused on our set plays but he’s a fast learner and we expect him to blend with the other players as we play more games,” Blackwater head coach Leo Isaac said after the Elite stunned the Meralco Bolts, 92-91, at the start of the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup quarterfinals Tuesday.

Since his arrival at Blackwater, Maliksi has been averaging 22 points per game through three outings, including a 29-point debut in a victory over GlobalPort.

Maliksi scored 15 points in the upset victory over the Bolts, delivering his team’s last four points in the final 33 seconds, none bigger than his game-winning jumper with 9.5 ticks left.
