The streaking Alaska Aces picked up a third straight victory as they cruised to a 101-86 rout of Barangay Ginebra in the Oppo PBA Philippine Cup on Sunday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.
Alaska, which improved to 3-2 in the standings, led by as many as 30 points in the fourth quarter in the lopsided contest.
RJ Jazul paced Alaska with 16 points, going 5-for-8 from beyond the arc. He hit three of those triples in the fourth quarter to help hold off the late Ginera charge.
Calvin Abueva added 12 points and five rebounds in under 18 minutes of play while Vic Manuel and Chris Banchero chipped in with 10 points apiece.
Seven other Aces scored six or more points in a balanced scoring effort.
Rookie Kevin Ferrer hit five three-pointers en route to a game-high 19 points to lead Ginebra, which dropped down to 2-3. – InterAksyon.com
