    Phoenix played without Jason Perkins and Javee Mocon, while June Mar Fajardo, CJ Perez, Marcio Lassiter, Chris Ross, Simon Enciso, and Vic Manuel were not in uniform for San Miguel.


      “This San Miguel is well-coached. Even if you lead by a big margin, you know they are going to come back,” said Phoenix coach Jamike Jarin.

      “Even though most of their players are not here, it’s still a San Miguel team. It’s a winning culture and you know they will come back. Good thing for us, we were able to hold on,” said Jarin.

      Simon Camacho led Phoenix in scoring with 15 points, followed by Tio with 14 including four threes. Larry Muyang and RR Garcia had 11 points apiece, while Jjay Alejandro had a near double-double and had 10 points and nine assists.

      The scores:

      Phoenix Super LPG 106 – Camacho 15, Tio 14, Muyang 11, Garcia 11, Alejandro 10, Manganti 10, Soyud 10, Lojera 10, Lalata 7, Jazul 6, Atienza 2.
