MANILA, Philippines – Magnolia couldn’t have snapped its 3-game skid any better after picking TNT apart, 111-89, in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Mall of Asia Arena on Wednesday, June 13.

Paul Lee waxed hot for 25 points on a 7-of-12 shooting while Justin Jackson messed with a near-triple-double of 18 points, 19 rebounds, 7 assists and two blocks as the Hotshots nabbed their first win in almost a month for a 4-4 record.

Holding a slim 79-73 lead after the first 3 quarters, Magnolia banked on back-to-back Rodney Brondial and Rome dela Rosa triples and 6 straight points from Jio Jalalon to mount a 22-6 run and never looked back.

Jalalon was his usual self with 13 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds and 4 steals while Brondial broke out of his shell and chalked up 16 points on an ultra-efficient 7-of-9 shooting with 8 rebounds.

Terrence Romeo had 17 points, 7 assists, 4 rebounds and two steals against 4 turnovers for the KaTropa, whose record fell to 6-2.
