As promised Pau Gasol played like a man on a mission. The Lakers center had 16 points in the first half which would’ve given him a $16,000 donation to the Philippines disaster relief. He continued in the second half with 8 more points for a grand total of 24 points and $24,000 that he will donate to UNICEF to help the millions of people in the Philippines. A couple days ago it was said Pau would donate $1,000 per point but Phil Jackson also got in on the action.
The zen master promised Pau a donation of $50 a point, $50 a rebound and $1,000 a charge. Pau’s numbers from last night were 24 points and 10 rebounds. He was unable to record a charge but add those numbers up and it looks like Phil will be donating at least $1,700 to UNICEF!
All in all the Lakers beat the Warriors 102-95, Pau played a great game and at a minimum of $25,7000 will be donated to UNICEF to help the Philippines! Great job Pau!
