Magnolia held GlobalPort to two points on a lockdown defense in the last four minutes of the game and turned to Pampanga pride Ian Sangalang for the clutch offensives in scoring a 92-87 victory in their PBA Petron Blaze Saturday Special at the AUF Gym here.

Vernon Macklin, Rome dela Rosa and Mark Barroca also played key roles as the Hotshots notched a first win in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup after a heartbreaking loss in their conference debut against the Phoenix Fuel Masters.

A closing 9-2 run by Sangalang, Macklin and Paul Lee had the Hotshots handing the Batang Pier a second loss in four starts in the mid-season tourney.

Sangalang made five points at the finish to cap a 22-point game off the bench.

Macklin with 19 points and Dela with 14 were the two other Hotshots who scored in double figures. Barroca made his presence felt on his fine defensive job against GlobalPort main man Stanley Pringle.

The scores:
