Fastbreak: NLEX rolls over Cagayan in Game 1
PBA D-League Aspirants Cup Finals Game 1
NLEX Road Warriors (87) - (63) Cagayan Valley Rising Suns
Best: Borgie Hermida. The former San Beda Red Lion "out-assisted" the whole Rising Suns team, dishing out 11 assists to go with his 10 points as the Road Warriors proved that, despite their star power, team play will still be the key to victory. Cagayan had just nine assists.
Worst: Cagayan appeared shocked and left in awe when they faced the three-time champion. After a 10-all deadlock in the first, the Road Warriors decided to finish the game right away and left the Rising Suns for good. Cagayan also had 18 turnovers compared to NLEX's 12.
One game away: And the Road Warriors are back to where they usually are at the end of the season. NLEX is now 48 minutes away from clinching their fourth straight title in the league. The Rising Suns will now have to start mapping their game plan for Tuesday if they intend to give NLEX a run for their money in Game 2. - Rappler.com
