The TNT KaTropa captured their third straight victory after defeating the Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters, 123-118.
Troy Rosario is scorching hot especially at the three-point area as he delivered 32 points for his squad. Rosario was also 6-of-9 from downtown which pulled the bigs of Phoenix to defend him from the wing.
KJ McDaniels also had his own version of 32 points for TNT who also shot 60 percent from behind the arc.
It was a tug-of-war kind of match for squads until the fourth quarter came when RR Pogoy sparked his team also from the three-point land.
Pogoy finished the game with 22 points who is another TNT player who is hot from downtown (4-of-5).
Likewise, Jayson Castro also got his 60 percent shooting from the same area.
Matthew Wright led the Fuel Masters with his 30 points while Eugene Phelps added 29 points and 13 rebounds.
This is the first time where TNT and Phoenix went head-to-head after the last conference’s incident which involves Calvin Abueva and Terrence Jones.
