SAN Miguel showed how potent it can be offensively as it crushed Columbian Dyip, 143-119, as it resumes its PBA Governors Cup campaign Friday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Arwind Santos erupted for 19 first quarter points to finish with a team-high 29 in leading two other Beermen with 20 or more in an obvious display of firepower. The former league MVP went 7-of-13 from three-point range.
Marcio Lassiter was six of 12 from beyond the arc for 28 points, while Christian Standhardinger added 21 for San Miguel, which equaled the league’s all-time record for most three-pointers in a game with 23 held by TnT Katropa.
The Beermen improved to 2-1 in the standings as they banked on their firepower on a night the team played lackluster on defense, according to coach Leo Austria.
