Baguio turns back time in breakout performance for NLEX

MANILA, Philippines — How quickly fans forget.

Cyrus Baguio was once a scoring machine in the league. And that edge withered away as Father Time caught up with him.

But with the Road Warriors desperately looking for a win, Baguio took matters into his own hands.

As if channeling his Red Bull Barako and Alaska Aces version of himself, he spearheaded the run that would eventually pave the way for NLEX’s upsetting of crowd-favorite Barangay Ginebra on Saturday night.

The 37-year-old cager scored the first 11 points of the Road Warriors in the final period to erase what has been a 14-point lead by the Gin Kings. Halfway through the quarter, his fellow veterans JR Quiñahan and Larry Fonacier took over as their team finally put an end to a dry spell that seemingly coincided with the New Year.

"Tingin ko ito pa lang ata 'yung magandang laro ko simula nung na-trade ako sa NLEX,” Baguio shared. "Pero siguro maganda lang talaga 'yung depensa namin kanina.”
