June Mar Fajardo battered his foes on all fronts as the San Miguel Beermen hacked out a dominating 93-79 win over Blackwater in the 2019 Honda PBA Philippine Cup on Wednesday at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Fajardo had a sterling night that saw him post a double-double of 20 points and 21 rebounds as the Beermen snapped a two-game slide for a pedestrian 3-3 win-loss record. He also had five assists and four blocks in close to 36 minutes of action.
It was the returning Alex Cabagnot, though, that nailed the five straight points, including the booming three-pointer with 7:01 remaining in the game, to give the Beermen a 17-point lead, 83-66.
Ronald Tubid munched 2-of-3 free throws 30 seconds later as the Beermen seized control the rest of the way.
Lacking in ceiling, the Elite struggled inside the paint with their big men taking turns in containing the 6-foot-10 behemoth Fajardo. The reigning five-time MVP went on and did his thing with ease.
