    MYLES Powell drained a dramatic buzzer-beating three as Bay Area escaped with a 105-104 win over NorthPort on Saturday in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Mall of Asia Arena.

    Bay Area Dragons vs NorthPort recap

    Powell made a contested three-pointer over the defense of NorthPort import Prince Ibeh to shock the Batang Pier as the Dragons improved their record to 2-0.

    The heroics spoiled the effort of the Batang Pier, who took a 104-102 lead after Roi Sumang forced a turnover and scored a lay-up with 1:08 left in the game.

    Sumang though failed to nail a dagger three in the final seconds, and Bay Area decided not to call a timeout in its final possession, leading to the Powell three.

    Powell finished the game with 37 points in a follow-up to his 41-point performance during their 46-point victory against Blackwater on Wednesday. He had 16 points in the fourth quarter including the game-winner.

    Hayden Joel Blankley also had a good showing in the contest with 12 of his 15 points in the second quarter, while Liu Chuanxing had 13 points for Bay Area.
