PBA 2018: Talk ‘N Text KaTropa shocked sister team the Meralco Bolts, 92-90, in a come-from-behind win in the 2018 PBA Governor’s Cup eliminations this Sunday at the Ynares Center. Terrence Romeo led TNT with his 23 points, 10 assists and 8 rebounds, while RR Pogoy chipped-in 19 buckets.

Notes:

➤ National mainstay Jayson Castro also added 16 buckets and 6 assists for the KaTropa.

➤ TNT won the game despite having no reinforcement. They let go of import Mike Glover after a dismal performance against the NLEX Road Warriors, who had import Olu Ashaolu playing with almost one leg due to patellar injury.

Allen Durham paced the losing Bolts with his 27 points, 22 boards and 8 dishes, while local Baser Amer contributed 18 markers.

Both TNT and Meralco sport identical 1-1 win-loss slate in the PBA Governors’ Cup.

Quarters: 23-23, 43-41, 68-61, 92-90.
