TNT extends win run

    1880

    THE irrepressible war machine that is TNT mowed down another victim.

    Not even one of its top players sitting it out could stop the Tropang Giga from fashioning a 109-96 victory over Blackwater last night in the PBA Philippine Cup at the Smart 5G-powered AUF Sports Arena in Angeles City.

    The victory, its fifth in as many games, not only broke TNT out of its leadership tie with Ginebra but also assured it of at least a tie for one of the eight quarterfinals slots.

    Hardly missed were the services of Jayson Castro and his per-game averages of 16 points and 5.5 assists as the former two-time Asia’s Best Point Guard felt something on his right calf during warm-up and was not fielded in. – Noli Cortez
