NLEX bounces back, deals Meralco first loss

The NLEX Road Warriors unleashed a late run to turn back the Meralco Bolts, 100-94, and get back on the winning track in the Oppo PBA Governors’ Cup Sunday at Mall of Asia Arena.

The Road Warriors, who trailed by as many as 12 points, dropped a 10-0 bomb in the fourth period to deal the first loss of the erstwhile unbeaten Bolts and bounce back from a defeat against Barangay Ginebra last week that derailed NLEX’s 4-0 start.

Larry Fonacier added 16 markers and seven boards while JR Quinahan chipped in 10 points and six boards.

NLEX’s slow start allowed Meralco to get off to a 21-9 lead in the first period. But the Road Warriors didn’t allow the Bolts to break the game wide open in their favor.
