SOURCEPBA


The TNT KaTropa Texters won’t let themselves down, producing a dynamic offensive display to salvage the last PBA Philippine Cup playoff berth with a 118-97 rout of the Phoenix Fuel Masters in a knockout setto at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Sunday night.

The Texters played with energy and purpose, and spilled the Fuel Masters to set up a quarterfinals matchup with three-time all-Filipino defending champs San Miguel Beermen.

In the same tourney last season, TNT and SMB figured in a best-of-seven semifinal series that went the full distance.

The two teams engage in an early playoff rematch this conference, with the Beermen enjoying a twice-to-beat advantage as the playoff top seeds.

San Miguel coach Leo Austria was a keen observer at the Big Dome as the Texters hurdled the Fuel Masters to keep their consistent playoff stints under coach Nash Racela.
