Magnolia guards Jio Jalalon and Paul Lee are playing inspired basketball lately after the two became new dads to adorable daughters just 11 days apart.

Jalalon laid eyes on his daughter named Jiana Skyla on September 27 while Lee welcomed Tokyo on Monday, the same day he inked a three-year contract to stay with the Hotshots.

“I’m inspired by my baby and my fiance, I draw strength from them,” said Jalalon in Filipino after recording his first PBA triple-double with 13 points, 12 rebounds and 13 assists in Magnolia’s 133-99 dismantling of Blackwater on Wednesday night.

Lee, who was traded by Rain or Shine to the Purefoods franchise two years ago, had another stellar performance with 19 points on 6-of-11 shooting from the field, five rebounds and four assists in only 20 minutes.
