Dominique Wilkins, though slowed down by the passing years, lead the NBA Generations team to a 109-86 beat down of the PBA All Star in Manila, Philippines.

Dominique Wilkins who is know to all as "The Human Highlight Film" lead the NBA Generations team with 28 points, 5 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 assist. While the PBA All Star was led by "The Triggerman" Allan Caidic with 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting in the opening quarter with Patrimonio sharing nine points and eight rebounds and Magsanoc adding eight points and three assists.

The PBA starting five of Caidic, Patrimonio, Wynne Arboleda, Arwind Santos and Asi Taulava held their own against Wilkins, Horry, Divac, Hardaway and Billy Thomas in a free-wheeling contest early on, giving the host team a 26-25 edge in the first quarter.

The fans had great fun then specially with Patrimonio knocking down a trey in his first attempt then Caidic taking over, rifling in five straight triples.

The Filipinos kept the game close through the second quarter before the Americans stepped up the tempo and slowly pulled away in the match.

Robert Horry, Tim Hardaway and Vlade Divac displayed flashes of brilliance as their contributions in the game serving as the Manila leg final tour of the NBA legends Asian tour which had its initial stop in Korea a week ago.

Horry converted two of three three-point attempts and finished with 10 points, five rebounds and four assists, Hardaway got eight assists, seven points, and four rebounds while Divac put in eight rebounds, six points and two assists.

“I had a fun time. I enjoyed it. It’s been more than 10 years since I played in a game with a real competitive atmosphere,” said Wilkins
