contest and move halfway to securing a fourth consecutive finals appearance in the PBA's importless
San Miguel, the defending Philippine Cup champions, pounced on the importless
Bolts who lost Josh Davis in the second quarter.
The Energy, who thumped importless
Blackwater last week, showed they can conquer a fancied side by chopping down the hulking Gin Kings to size, surviving a scoreless spell in the last 1:26 to rise to 20 overall.
Against the Energy, the Kings will be facing another energetic import in Sol Alabi, whose true worth will be tested after playing almost unchallenged in a 9270 win over an importless
Blackwater five last Wednesday.
Barako Bull, getting 21 points and 22 rebounds from import Sol Alabi and 20 points from Sol Mercado, easily prevailed over importless
Blackwater, 9270, last night to join the list of early winners in the PBA Commissioner's Cup eliminations at Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay.
