Cagayan de Oro’s Jio Jalalon came close to a triple-double finishing with 16 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists as the Magnolia Hotshots Pambansang Manok exacted revenge over San Miguel Beer with a masterful 118-82 rout at the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last night.

Jalalon was so determined against the Beermen to whom they lost in the Finals of the 2019 Philippine Cup where he missed the potential game winner in the dying seconds of Game 7.
