Arwind Santos had a stellar 16 points, 21 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, and 1 block in Petron's game last night against the struggling Shopinas.com Clickers. The Spiderman led the Blaze Boosters in holding off the Clickers.
This win of Petron against Shopinas is their 3rd straight this season. They first beat B-Meg, then Barako Bull and most recently Shopinas. They are now definitely one of the hottest teams in the PBA right now.
And Arwind Santos is one of the biggest reasons behind Petron's winning streak. The other reasons were Alex Cabagnot and Danny Ildefonso. But, Arwind's hustle and rebounding skill were just too overwhelming this Season. You just can't overlook his jumping ability, his athleticism and his strength in getting those rebounds. He really deserves all the praises that he has been getting from his fans all over the Philippines. He is becoming more and more famous in each and every game of Petron. So much so that the other Big Time players from other PBA Teams praised him because of his fine performance.
Here are the praises that Sol Mercado, Joe Devance, Chris Ross, and Rob Reyes gave to Arwind using their Twitter accounts. Petron Blaze Facebook page was able to compile them.
Those nice praises will surely motivate Arwind Santos to play even better than his performance in the PBA Season 36. I'm sure he will get more individual awards this season because he is playing like an MVP.
