Defending champion San Miguel Beermen continued with its resurgence by pulling off a 125-114 win over the undermanned but hard-fighting NLEX Road Warriors, Saturday night at the Calasiao Sports Complex in Pangasinan.

June Mar Fajardo, Marcio Lassiter and Renaldo Balkman combined for 81 points to power the Beermen to their 5th win in 9 starts and move up to solo 5th place in the team standings.

Fajardo led the team in scoring with 30 points to go along with 13 rebounds and 1 block. Lassiter waxed hot from long distance, connecting on 6 of 9 attempts to finish with 26 markers while Balkman delivered his usual all-around numbers of 25 points, 16 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals.

The Road Warriors were led by import Arnett Moultrie who finished with a game-high 43 points but failed to get enough support from his teammates as only Asi Taulava finished in double figures. The 45-year old Fil-Tongan came up with a season-best 18 points spiked by a surprising 5 of 8 shooting from 3-point country in only 17 minutes of action.
