MANILA--Paul Lee has been Magnolia's spark plug this past week.

On Wednesday night, Lee exploded in the third quarter, making all of his 13 points in the said period, and led the Hotshots' breakaway against the Kia Picanto.

Then on Sunday night, Lee once again caught fire just after halftime, firing 12 points in the third canto, as Magnolia turned back NLEX despite Kiefer Ravena dropping 31.

The said third quarter barrages led to the PBA Press Corps naming him the Player of the Week on Monday.

Lee got the citation over Alaska’s Calvin Abueva, Vic Manuel and Chris Banchero; GlobalPort's Stanley Pringle, Blackwater's JP Erram and Mac Belo; and San Miguel’s June Mar Fajardo and Arwind Santos.
