MANILA—TNT put on a red-hot offensive showcase on Saturday night to take down Terrafirma, 131-109, in their PBA Governors' Cup battle at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.

The Tropang Giga exploded for 68 points in the first half even as they kept the Dyip at bay until the third quarter to seal the blowout win.

Jalen Hudson fired 36 points on 12-for-15 field goals, six rebounds, two assists, three steals, and three blocks for TNT, which moved up to the third place at 5-1, just below unbeaten San Miguel, which will play Converge later Saturday, and Ginebra.

Mikey Williams added 26 points, four rebounds, and six assists, while Calvin Oftana chipped in 15 points, 10 rebounds, and three assists off the bench.

Two nights after a 57-point eruption against Blackwater, Jordan Williams made 38 points on 15-of-27 field goals with 10 rebounds, six assists, and three steals for Terrafirma, which dropped to 2-3.
