Alaska rode Vic Manuel’s continuing hot streak in crushing erstwhile unbeaten TNT 110-100 Sunday to grab a share of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup lead at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.

Manuel came off the bench to score a new career-high 29 points, way above his 26.5 average the last two games, in leading the Aces to their straight win in four games.

Antonio Campbell also played a major role with 23 points and 20 rebounds and the rest of the Alaska crew did their part in a hot start that gave the team momentum for as much as a 25-point 92-67 spread.

From there, the Aces had little trouble in coasting their way to the end and into a share of the lead with idle Meralco, their victim and Rain or Shine on top of the 12-team heap.

Offense was no problem for Alaska with Manuel seeing to that.

The muscular forward went 12-for-18 from the floor in just over 25 minutes on the court. His back-to-back layups not only capped his sterling performance but also gave Alaska a safe 106-89 cushion, going to the game’s last 1:21.

The scores:

Alaska 110 – Manuel 29, Campbell 23, Casio 10, Abueva 9, Banchero 8, Racal 8, Enciso 7, Magat 7, Thoss 5, Teng 4, Baclao 0, Exciminiano 0, Potts 0.

TNT 100 – Castro 18, Romeo 17, Tyler 16, Rosario 15, Cruz 10, Pogoy 9, Semerad 5, Trollano 5, Reyes 3, Paredes 2, Golla 0, Carey 0, Garcia 0, Saitanan 0.

Quarterscores: 34-26, 59-43, 85-67, 110-100.
