    MANNY Harris scored 10 of his 29 points in the pivotal third quarter on his way to a triple-double performance as NLEX topped Rain or Shine, 111-91, to gain a share of the lead in the PBA Governors’ Cup.

    The NLEX import also added 12 rebounds and 11 assists as the Road Warriors upped their mark to 7-1, and has now tied TNT for the lead in the team standings.

    Harris converted a dunk, part of a 17-4 start for the Road Warriors in the third quarter after a close 51-49 halftime lead, on their way to securing their fourth straight victory in the conference.

    The Road Warriors continued their impressive play in a big follow-up to their recent victory that handed the KaTropa their first loss of the conference.

    Rain or Shine dropped to last place in the team standings with a 2-7 card.

    NLEX actually got into a slow start, trailing, 15-9, to start the game against Rain or Shine, which paraded another new import in Richard Ross.

    “Mabuti na lang we woke up in time,” said NLEX coach Yeng Guiao. “First half, I had some worries. Medyo nag-worry ako dahil iniwanan kami nung first quarter. We felt that we came into the game flat and we were not focused mentally.

    “Rain or Shine is a dangerous team and I think that their import is the right for him. He got into foul trouble and if it hadn’t for that, we would have not built a lead,” said Guiao.
