    JUMBO Plastic Linoleum handed Hog’s Breath Café its first loss with an 87-70 decision on Thursday in the PBA D-League Aspirants Cup at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

    Jason Ballesteros had a monster game with 17 points, 17 rebounds, and two blocks to pace the Giants, who improved their record to 6-2.

    A determined Giants squad finished the second quarter with an 11-5 run and never looked back as they posted double digit leads in the second half.
