Meralco racks up 3rd win, ruins Yap's career milestone

Meralco recovered from a slow start and racked up its third straight win by getting past Rain or Shine, 89-73, on Saturday in the PBA Governors' Cup at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.

Meralco import Allen Durham had a double-double of 23 points and 23 rebounds to go with his 8 assists, while Jared Dillinger added 16 markers and 3 boards.

“What we wanted to do in the second half is to become a little more aggressive, put more pressure on the basketball,” said Meralco coach Norman Black.

“We played much better defense and our offense was much smoother, we're moving the ball around like we did in the first 2 games.”

The Bolts’ third win ruined James Yap’s scoring milestone. The Rain or Shine star registered his 10,000th point with a triple in the third quarter.

JD Weatherspoon paced the Elasto Painters with an all-around effort of 19 points, 13 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 4 blocks.
