PotW: Baser Amer Finally Recognized

Baser Amer
This is the second year of Baser Amer in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), but he is already showing an admirable trait among elite point guards, maturity.

During Meralco Bolts game against the Phoenix Fuelmasters, the native of Davao fired 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting, to go along with 3 assists, leading the Bolts to an 81-66 win.

The win vaulted Meralco to solo spot with its 7-1 card, while more importantly, enhanced its bid to clinch one of two twice-to-beat incentives heading to the playoffs.

Since the Commissioner's Cup started, Baser is one of the most consistent player for the Bolts as he averaged career-best 16.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.25 assists and an impressive 42.3 percent shooting from beyond the arc. The former San Bedan also have a high 35.7 EFF rating.

The 24-year-old Amer's impressive showing earned him the Accel-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week for the period of 2-7, beating the likes of Bolts teammate Chris Newsome, TNT's Kelly Williams, Star guard Paul Lee, Mahindra's Reden Celda, Ginebra guard Scottie Thompson, Blackwater's Mike DiGregorio and Phoenix veteran RJ Jazul.

Meralco will be gunning for its eighth win this conference when it battles slumping GlobalPort on Wednesday at Mall of Asia Arena.
