NLEX is admittedly on survival mode and showed it.
Finally showing traces of their usual formidable form, the Road Warriors scored a 102-88 victory over hard-luck NorthPort last night to end their three-game losing run in the PBA Philippine Cup bubble at the Smart 5G-powered AUF Sports Arena in Angeles City.
Kiefer Ravena scored a game-high 25 points while JR Quinahan and Kevin Alas contributed in their own way as NLEX wrested control early and countered whatever surge NorthPort could muster.
“It’s definitely more difficult than usual because of the different circumstances that we’re in,” said coach Yeng Guiao after they posted their first win in four tries. – Noli Cortez
