The playing coach, who joined the PBA as a rookie last year, hit a long jumper off the defense of Chris Tiu in the 10-minute mark of the second quarter.

Last season, Pacquiao scored a point off a free throw as Kia played Purefoods in the Commissioner's Cup. He played 26 minutes in four games but missed all six attempts from the field. — LBG, GMA News
