PASAY--San Miguel preserved a hot offensive to start the game and tripped NLEX, 124-116, in their PBA Commissioner's Cup game on Sunday night at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

The Beermen erupted for 43 points in the first quarter behind the hot hands of Marcio Lassiter and even stretched their lead to as high as 15 points, 52-37, in the second.

However, the Road Warriors, behind Earl Clark's own explosion, stayed close and were even within three, 109-112, with 3:53 left in the fourth quarter.

SMB sealed the win after going on an 8-0 run to up its lead to 11, 120-109, with 2:06 remaining.

Devon Scott led the Beermen, who are now at 2-3, with 26 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, and two steals, while Lassiter and Vic Manuel each added 22 points.

Clark's monster numbers of 40 points and 25 rebounds alongside five assists and two steals went down the drain as the Road Warriors fell to 3-3.

Justin Chua added 23 points and five rebounds, while Don Trollano put up 21 points, six rebounds, and two steals.
