Phoenix routs GlobalPort
PHOENIX continued to fight for a quarterfinals spot after destroying Globalport, 135-108, in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Wednesday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Fuel Masters got to a 4-6 (win-loss) record to keep their head afloat while the Batang Pier dropped to 4-5.
Eugene Phelps dropped a ridiculous triple-double of 37 points, 23 rebounds, and 10 assists — the first 30-20 triple-double in 20 years — for Phoenix in a game that was ultimately decided in the first 12 minutes.
Phoenix raised fire and brimstone in the first quarter, scorching the Batang Pier for a 41-22 lead that eventually became the foundation for the Fuel Masters’ 135-point franchise record of most points in a single game.
“Hopefully this will be the start of something big for us,” said Phoenix head coach Louie Alas whose team has suffered disappointing losses despite leading by double digits.
Malcolm White had 24 points and six rebounds to lead the Batang Pier.
