MANILA—San Miguel became the third team to seal a twice-to-beat advantage in the PBA Governors' Cup quarterfinals after drubbing NLEX, 120-106, on Wednesday night at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig.

Cameron Clark put up a statement game against his former team as he exploded for 45 points on 17-for-27 field goals along with 17 rebounds and three assists to lead the Beermen, who gradually asserted control of the entire game.

CJ Perez added 23 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and two steals as SMB, now at 8-2, could go as high as number two after the eliminations with a win against also-ran Rain Or Shine on Friday back at the arena formerly known as The ULTRA.

Wayne Selden put up 32 points, four rebounds, six assists, two steals, and one block, while Brandon Rosser added 29 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, three blocks, and two steals for NLEX, which dropped to number six after the three-way tie at 7-4 between them, Meralco, and Magnolia was broken through the quotients.

The result gave the Bolts the last twice-to-beat advantage and will face the Hotshots in one quarterfinal pairing.
