THE TNT Tropang Giga proved unstoppable once again as they crushed the Blackwater Elite, 109-96, in the PBA Philippine Cup on Thursday, October 22, 2020, at the AUF Sports Arena and Cultural Center in Pampanga.

Playing without top guard Jayson Castro who sat the game out because of a tight back, the Tropang Giga kept their lethal form as five different players scored in double-figures led by Cebuano wingman Roger Pogoy who had 20 points to go with seven rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Bobby Ray Parks tallied 18 points, Troy Rosario notched a double-double of 17 points and 12 boards, while Simon Enciso added 16. JP Erram came off the bench and provided 14 points, five boards and five dimes to help TNT push their win-loss record up to 5-0.

The Tropang Giga started off strong, leading, 34-25, after the first canto. TNT did not let up as they led by as much as 21 in the lopsided affair.

Don Trollano scored 23 points for Blackwater, which lost its second game in a row and fell to 2-3. (JNP)
