PASIG--TNT took advantage of Blackwater's turnovers to score a 108-98 win in their PBA Commissioner's Cup game on Saturday night at the PhilSports Arena.

Despite a solid start from the Bossing, the Tropang Giga used their lockdown defense in the final three quarters that saw the former losing the ball 31 times, a league season-high in turnovers.

Cam Oliver led TNT, which moved to a tie with Converge and NLEX in third place at 3-2, with 38 points, 10 rebounds, and three assists.

Mikey Williams, who made his first start this conference, added 28 points, one rebound, three assists, and two steals.

Cam Krutwig paced Blackwater, which fell to 3-4, with 25 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, and three steals.

Troy Rosario missed the chance to face his former team as he sat out the game due to plantar fasciitis.
