Aching to bounce back from their loss to the NLEX Road Warriors last week prior to the postponement of games, the Tropang Giga zapped the Batang Pier from the get-go, ending the first quarter with a 30-13 lead and never looking back, even opening a 36-point cushion in the third quarter.

Ray-Ray Parks led TNT, which moved up to 6-1, with 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting, 10 rebounds, two assists, and two steals.

RR Pogoy added 15 markers, two boards, five dimes, and three steals.

Kelly Nabong put up 17 points and three rebounds off the bench for NorthPort, which dropped to 1-5.

Chris Standhardinger added a double-double of 15 markers and 12 caroms with two dimes and one steal.
