PALAYAN--Meralco finally barged into the win column in the PBA Commissioner's Cup after drubbing Terrafirma, 105-92, on Friday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

Despite the absence of Head Coach Norman Black, who entered the league's health and safety protocols, the Bolts gave the Dyip more frustrations as they stop their own early woes in the conference.

Meralco pulled away from Terrafirma in the fourth quarter after holding them to just 16 points in the said period.

Johnny O'Bryant fired 31 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, one block, and three steals, while Allein Maliksi added 18 points, six rebounds, two assists, and two steals for the Bolts, who moved up to 1-2.

Lester Prosper's 35-point, 18-rebound, three-assist, and three-block performance went to waste as the Dyip remain winless in the conference after four tries.
