    TNT extended its winning streak to five with a 114-86 blowout over Terrafirma on Friday in the PBA 47th Season Philippine Cup at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

    Mikey Williams scored a season-high 31 points in his fourth game of the season, taking control in the third quarter when the Tropang GIGA went on a tear after trailing briefly, 50-49, at the onset of the second half.

    “At halftime, we talked about some adjustments we needed to make defensively because we gave up 34 points in the second quarter. When the third quarter ended and we were up by 17, we just reminded the players that here we are again, let’s make sure that we play with a lot of defensive intensity,” said Reyes.
