    JAI Reyes scored 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as Laguna chalked up its first win in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) Datu Cup by holding off Pasig, 83-75, on Tuesday night.

    Reyes presided over a brave stand that enabled the Heroes to stave off a rally by the Pirates, to the disappointment of a raucous crowd at the Pasig Sports Center.

    Denok Miranda had 15 points while Lord Casajeros bagged 14 points for Laguna, which atoned for its home loss to Zamboanga with a win on the road.

    "Tulungan kami. Nababasa rin nila. As a coach, ina-accept ko kung ano ‘yung ramdam nila sa court. May oras na sila ‘yung nakakita. Sabi nila, kami na muna, piso-piso. I let them play,” Laguna coach Alex Angeles said.

    Pasig got within 64-61 at the end of the third quarter but that proved to be the Pirates’ last stand as Reyes took over, hitting back-to-back baskets to give the Heroes a 73-63 lead with 7:21.
