MANILA--The Pampanga Giant Lanterns flexed their muscles in a 63-44 drubbing of Quezon City TODA Aksyon in the nightcap of the MPBL's Thursday night tripleheader at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando City, Pampanga to tally their fourth victory after an initial loss.

Reigning MPBL MVP Justine Baltazar was dominant with 12 points, 19 rebounds, and 4 assists while Archie Concepcion provided support with 12 points and 3 rebounds as Pampanga led by as far as 63-41 shortly before the game ended.

Encho Serrano, Pampanga's No. 2 gunner, missed his four field goal attempts and went scoreless before hurting his left shoulder and being taken to a hospital for a check-up.

Quezon City dropped to 2-3 as only homegrown Chino Mosqueda was able to hit twin digits with 10.

The South Cotabato Warriors halted their skid by subduing the Pasay Voyagers and climbing to a 3-3 slate.

Veteran John Wilson spearheaded South Cotabato with 22 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals while Marwin Dionisio and Enzo Joson backed him up with 11 points each.

Pasay slid to 3-2 despite the 18-point, 8-rebound, 5-assist effort of Laurenz Victoria and the 13-point, 5-rebound output of Patrick Sleat.
