MANILA - The Meralco Bolts bounced back from their loss two nights ago and salvaged the TnT KaTropa, 114,94, to even their PBA Governors' Cup semis series to a game each on Tuesday night.

Allen Durham finished with a triple double to upset the KaTropa, scoring 44 points, 19 rebounds and 11 assists.

TnT took an early beating from Meralco after the Bolts blasted a 34-point advantage at halftime.

KJ McDaniels and Bobby Ray Parks joined forces in the 3rd quarter to trim down the lead, but the Bolts remained too strong for the KaTropa to handle.

Adding bad spell to an already unfortunate night for TnT, Troy Rosario fouled out of the game with over 7 minutes to play in the 4th quarter.

Baser Amer led the scoring for the locals in the Meralco side, finishing with 20 points.

McDaniels led all scorers with 51 points while Parks chipped in 12 for the KaTropa.
