MANILA--Paul Lee is at his scoring self once again. 

The Magnolia Hotshots extended its winning form in the PBA Commissioner's Cup to three games thanks in part to the sweet shooting of the 29-year old combo guard, who was later hailed as the PBA Press Corps Player of the Week for the period of May14-20. 

Lee averaged 18.5 points, seven assists, 2.5 rebounds, and a steal in the Pambansang Manok's two-game run that stretched its winning streak to three games and a 3-1 record in the mid-season conference.

In Magnolia's 126-101 thrashing of Columbian Dyip, the former UE Red Warrior drilled in 17 points spiked on three triples plus eight assists and two rebounds. He was also instrumental in the team's thrilling 81-79 win opposite Meralco, where he issued 20 points along with six dimes and three boards.

The "Angas ng Tondo" edged out teammate Mark Barroca, last week's POW Vic Manuel, Rain Or Shine's Chris Tiu, TNT's Ryan Reyes, and the Phoenix Fuel duo of Jeff Chan and Matthew Wright for the weekly accolade. 

 Magnolia will next face Rain Or Shine on June 2 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
