Perez recorded 25 points, 4 rebounds and 8 assists in 43 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Soles de Mexicali (21-12) is placed second in the LNBP. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical.
