San Miguel put a stop to its three-game skid and crushed Phoenix, 117-100, in the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup Friday at Mall of Asia Arena.
The Beermen got into an intoxicated 21-7 run across the third and fourth quarters to take a 92-77 on Marcio Lassiter’s layup with 8:21 left.
Things, however, got heated with 4:11 left in the game when Calvin Abueva and Kevin Murphy got tangled up in the baseline near the Phoenix bench.
This scuffle caused a momentary delay in the game as both benches exchanged verbal jabs during the break in action and these resulted to three technical fouls called against the Fuel Masters.
Technical fouls were called against Phoenix head coach Louie Alas, team manager Paolo Bugia, and big man Doug Kramer after the scuffle while Murphy was called with a flagrant penalty 1.
