GlobalPort subdues TNT for bounce back win
TNT refuses to go away in the final quarter but GlobalPort closes the door

MANILA, Philippines – The GlobalPort Batang Pier held off a late game run by the TNT KaTropa to notch the bounce back victory, 119-112, in the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup on Friday, September 1 at the Ynares Center in Antipolo. 

Down by double digits for most of the final frame, the KaTropa refused to back down without a fight, and they orchestrated an 11-2 run to go within striking distance, 105-111 with less than 5 minutes left on the clock. 

The Batang Pier, however, did just enough to fend off the endgame rally by a determined TNT squad with Stanley Pringle leading the charge. 

Pringle finished with 30 points on 10-of-16 shooting to go with 8 rebounds and 4 assists.

Murphy Holloway added a double-double of 24 markers and 17 boards, while Sean Anthony had 21.

Glen Rice Jr dished out a game-high 39 points, 13 boards, and 5 assists for the KaTropa, who struggled with missed charities throughout the match and went 17-of-31 from the stripe. 

RR Pogoy scored 26 markers, including back-to-back field goals that were monumental in the team’s 4th quarter run, while Jayson Castro added 15 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists. 

With the win, GlobalPort breaks TNT’s consecutive win streak, and delivered a bounce back win of its own following a heartbreaker against the San Miguel Beermen last week.

`The Batang Pier now advances to an even 3-3 slate, while the KaTropa drops to 4-3. –
