(UPDATE 1) Raymond Almazan: "Masakit eh, medyo nahilo ako ng ilang seconds kasi closed fist eh saka namaga nga siya eh, Pero akala ko wala na eh. Closed fist talaga naramdaman ko kasi alam ko tapos na. Saka naisip ko, pagka-rebound ko idi-dribble ko na lang pababa eh. Nagulat na lang ako may ganung factor pa eh" [via spin.ph]
(UPDATE 2) PBA commissioner Chito Salud has summoned both Hodge and Guiao to hear their side on the incident marring the endgame of the match won by the Elasto Painters to force a deciding Game Three in their quarters matchup with the Bolts.
Hodge threw a clenched fist on a driving Almazan in the closing seconds of the match, prompting the fiery RoS mentor to confront the Meralco player at the end of the rugged game.
Instead of going straight to their lockers, Guiao waited for Hodge on the way to the exit.
And then Guiao showered Hodge with a mouthful. Guiao was even heard on TV calling Hodge “mongoloid.” [via pba.inquirer.net]
