PASIG—Bay Area put up the most explosive offensive performance the PBA has seen in the past four years, taking down TNT, 140-108, in their crucial Commissioner's Cup game on Wednesday at the PhilSports Arena.

The Dragons erupted for 80 points in the first half alone and finished with the most points in a game since San Miguel dropped 143 on Terrafirma, then known as Columbian, in the 2018 Commissioner's Cup.

Myles Powell led Bay Area, which clinched a once-to-win advantage in the quarterfinals as they ended their elimination round campaign at 10-2, with 37 points, six rebounds, seven assists, and one steal.

Kobey Lam added a career-high 30 points with six rebounds, two assists, and one steal, while Zhu Songwei chipped in 22 points, six rebounds, and six assists.

Matt Mobley's explosive debut with 38 points, five rebounds, and two assists went down the drain as TNT fell outside of the Top 8 at 4-7.

Poy Erram added 16 points, 12 rebounds, and two blocks off the bench.

The outcome effectively clinched a playoff spot for NorthPort.
