Is Tyler Bey the best import in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup? Whatever the correct answer is, one thing’s for sure—the Magnolia Hotshots got themselves a keeper.
On Wednesday at the PhilSports Arena, the 25-year-old swingman from Las Vegas, Nevada proved his worth anew as he went off for 26 points and 22 rebounds to spearhead Magnolia’s 105-84 domination of the Blackwater Bossing.
Bey and the Hotshots remained perfect with a 6-0 slate, while the Bossing fell to 1-5.
At the postgame presser, Bey talked about his squad’s latest conquest and revealed his thought process whenever he competes.
“Getting the dub, that’s all that matters. I don’t feel like we played our best in the first three quarters. We went up by 10 and then let them come back multiple times,” said the 2020 NBA Draft’s 36th overall pick.
“Having the dub is always good. There’s always a lot to learn, win or lose,” he added.
Asked about how they can sustain their winning streak, which stretches back to the PBA on Tour, especially because their next opponent will be the talented San Miguel Beermen, Bey knew exactly what to say.
“I think just staying together. Learning from every game, like I said, win or lose, watching film. Just doing little things like taking care of our bodies,” the explosive swingman responded.
“We got a big one on Sunday and we’re going to dial in. We got a good coaching staff. We’re just going to lock in,” he said.
