    The Tropang GIGA overhauled a 16-point deficit after Mike Nieto and rookie Gian Mamuyac nailed a couple of key shots in the second half.

    “In the end, the players never gave up. We found a way to grind it out,” said TNT coach Chot Reyes.

    Erram had six of his 13 points in overtime while also pulling 10 rebounds for the Tropang GIGA, who trailed 56-40 in the third after a 14-0 run by the Elastopainters.

    Down 78-68 after a four-point swing from Nieto, Castro went to work with back-to-back threes, and scored a lay-up with 24.3 seconds left in regulation to tie the game. Erram missed the potential game-winning jumper in regulation.
