San Miguel routed NLEX, 125-114, in the ongoing PBA Commissioner’s Cup 2018 this Saturday at the Calasiao Sports Complex in Pangasinan. Junemar Fajardo led the spirited Beermen with 30 points and 13 rebounds, while power import Renaldo Balkman contributed 25 markers and 16 boards. Long range sniper Marcio Lassiter also chipped-in 26 buckets on 6 of 9 treys. Arnett Moultrie, meanwhile, backstopped the losing Road Warriors with monstrous 43 points and 16 caroms.

Notes:

The Road Warriors were missing the services of Kevin Alas and Larry Fonacier due to injury, while Kiefer Ravena is still under FIBA suspension.

The game was a resurgence of sorts for veteran Asi Taulava who added the rainbow bomb to his arsenal, shooting five total three points. He finished with 18 points in the game for the Road Warriors.

The win seals a sure playoff berth for the Beermen as Fajardo departs for Gilas tip-off against Taiwan on June 29th.
