WATCH: Referees nullify Sean Anthony’s three-pointer then charge him with an offensive foul!

Jason Perkins drained two charities with 7.2 seconds left then Phoenix Pulse put a crucial stoppage as the Fuel Masters squeezed out a 98-96 win over a crippled but fierce-fighting NorthPort team in the PBA Philippine Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Friday.

Perkins broke the 96-all count on his free throws then the Fuel Masters applied a swarming defense to complete the win, enabling the team to put one foot into the post-elims play.

Minus Stanley Pringle who was serving a one-game suspension, Moala Tautuaa, Sean Anthony, Nico Elorde, Robert Bolick and Paolo Taha shared the scoring load for NorthPort, all delivering double-digit outputs.

Matthew Wright had poured in 22 points before picking a sixth foul.

Justin Chua had his own big game with 19 markers plus nine rebounds while Calvin Abueva, Perkins and RJ Jazul chipped in 14, 12 and 10 points, respectively.
