Phoenix’ desperation turned into game and pity GlobalPort, which was standing in the way Wednesday.

The Fuel Masters unleashed one sustained run after another to deal the Batang Pier a 135-108 drubbing and stay alive in their bid for entry into the PBA Commissioner’s Cup playoffs at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Eugene Phelps registered a triple double of 37 points, 23 rebounds and 10 assists while Matthew Wright led the group of locals who stepped up for Phoenix in a game it dominated from the opening quarter on.

As a result, the Fuel Masters snapped out of a four-game slide and improved to a 4-6 slate overall. They remained at 10th-running spot, but only half-a-game out of the eighth and last quarterfinals slot.

Things could even get better for Phoenix should it prevail over Alaska in the penultimate day of the 11-game eliminations on July 6.
