JOPHER Custodio led the way as Jumbo Plastic handed defending champion Blackwater Sports its second straight loss, 76-68, on Monday in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup at The Arena in San Juan.
The Giants bounced back from defeat in its opening game against Cebuana Lhuillier as Custodio scored 19 points, making five of 11 shots from three-point range against the Elite.
Custodio also hit a triple in the third quarter that made it 54-32, the biggest lead in the game.
Jeff Viernes also tallied 14 points for the Giants.
Blackwater Sports, which is applying for membership in the PBA, fell to 0-2 after losing to NLEX in its first game of the conference last week.
The Elite missed the services of Reil Cervantes, who was suspended for this game and slapped a P5,000 fine for a flagrant foul two on Ola Adeogun in their defeat against the Road Warriors.
