ANTIPOLO--TNT put an end to a mini-slump midway into its PBA Commissioner's Cup elimination round campaign after adding to Terrafirma's current woes with a 121-90 win on Saturday night at the Ynares Center.

The Tropang Giga blew the game wide open in the third quarter, outscoring the Dyip, 37-23, to pull away for good despite the latter's gritty stand in the first half.

Cam Oliver led TNT, which snapped a two-game slide to move up to 4-4, with 26 points, 15 rebounds, five assists, one block, and one steal.

Jjay Alejandro each added 17 points on 7-for-8 shooting off the bench.

The team will take a two-week break as some of its players, head coach Chot Reyes, and son Josh will head to the Middle East for Gilas Pilipinas' campaign in the fifth window of the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers.

Lester Prosper's 32-point explosion plus 13 rebounds, two assists, and one steal was flushed anew as Terrafirma dropped to 0-8 in the conference and lost for the 24th straight time overall.
