    REIL Cervantes scored 23 points to help Blackwater Sports defeat Hog’s Breath Café, 89-74, on Tuesday for its third straight win in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup at the JCSGO gym in Quezon City.

    Gilbert Bulawan added 14 points and 10 rebounds while fellow veteran Pari Llagas had 10 points as the defending champion Blackwater Sports leaned on a 20-4 finish in the third quarter.

    A three-point play by Cervantes jumpstarted Blackwater’s run with Don Trollano scoring back-to-back triples to put the Elite ahead, 59-49.

    Cervantes scored Blackwater’s final seven points in the quarter for a sizeable 69-51 lead entering the final period.

    After a 0-2 start to the conference, Blackwater Sports (3-2) is now tied with Boracay Rum for fourth place in the standings.

    Hog’s Breath (1-5) is on the brink of missing the six-team playoff round in the single-round elimination tournament, slipping to ninth place.

    The Razorbacks were able to take a 39-38 lead at halftime after a 16-27 deficit in the first period. Kevin Racal started the third with a triple, 42-38, but Hog’s Breath failed to sustain its lead over the reigning champion.
