June Mar Fajardo scored 20 points and San Miguel Beer used a strong fourth quarter to defeat TNT 88-76 in the PBA Philippine Cup at University of San Agustin Gym in Iloilo City on Saturday.
Arwind Santos and Alex Cabagnot combined for 15 points in the quarter, where the Beermen outscored TNT 30-15 en route to their third straight win.
TNT fell to 1-1.
After a hot start, TNT tapered off in the second quarter then spent most of the third in the driver’s seat.
Late in the fourth, that’s when San Miguel found its touch, as a pair of 3-pointers by Cabagnot and Santos gave the Beermen an 84-76 lead with less than a minute to go, which essentially iced the game.
Santos finished with 15 points, 11 rebounds and 4 blocks, while Cabagnot added 11 points and 12 rebounds.
Troy Rosario tallied 15 points and 13 rebounds for TNT, which shot just 31% from the field (29 of 93).
