    ANTIPOLO – Phoenix Super LPG attained its first victory in its third game of the PBA Season 47 Philippine Cup after a lopsided 97-74 win over Terrafirma on Friday at the Ynares Center.

    Phoenix vs Terrafirma recap

    “As much as possible, we don’t want to get deep into that bottom of the standings. It’s something that is big for us. We know how deadly Dyip is if we will take it easy on them. I guess one thing that worked for us is we really clamped down on our defense,” said Phoenix coach Topex Robinson.

    Phoenix took charge with an 11-2 run midway in the second for a 32-19 lead. The Fuel Masters later led, 59-24, in the third.

    Joseph Gabayni led Terrafirma with 15 points and nine rebounds while Aldrech Ramos had 14. The Dyip came into the game without Ed Daquioag and Isaac Go, who will miss the rest of the conference due to separate injuries.
