MANILA, Philippines – Blackwater sent Barangay Ginebra crashing back to earth as the Elite handed the Gin Kings their first loss of the season with a 94-77 victory in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup at the Mall of Asia Arena Friday, January 12.

Ginebra trailed by just one point early in the fourth quarter following a Mark Caguioa jumper, 63-64, before the Elite went on an 18-6 run, with 8 points coming from Allein Maliksi and 6 from Mike DiGregorio, to bring their lead back to double digits, 82-69.

A Japeth Aguilar dunk cut Blackwater’s lead to 10 with a little over two minutes left in the game but the Elite finished the game off in style with 7 straight markers.

Poy Erram paced the Elite, who improved to 2-1, with 22 points, 11 rebounds and 4 blocks while Mac Belo also poured in 22 markers, highlighted by two clutch triples down the stretch, to go with 7 rebounds, 3 assists and two steals.
