Here are the live scores, updates, and results of the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup between the TNT Tropang Giga and the Meralco Bolts, scheduled on November 7, 2020, at 6:45 PM.
Tropang Giga pillars in Roger Pogoy and Troy Rosario struggled for practically all game long, with the latter missing all his 15 tries from the field. This eventually led to an 85-79 defeat to Barangay Ginebra San Miguel.
Three-point shooting, usually one of TNT’s strongest suits, was practically missing in action yesterday (November 6). In comparison to Ginebra’s 8-of-29 clip, Tropang Giga went 5-of-41 from beyond the arc only.
Meanwhile, Meralco produced back-to-back wins in its first back-to-back assignments in the PBA bubble play restart.
From a tight halftime count, the Bolts broke away on a rip-roaring third quarter and warded off a determined chase by the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters in the payoff period to hack out an 85-78 win.
Returning strong from a weeklong breather, the Bolts, now with a 4-3 win-loss record, closed in on a playoff entry, with a solid chance at the Top Four and its reward of a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals.
