Pingris, who finished with 12 points, became the 85th member of the 5,000-point club, achieving the feat with a breakaway dunk with 10 seconds left in the game.

Star stormed out of the gates to grab a 22-11 lead and never looked back in the wire-to-wire win.

According PBA statistician Fidel Mangonon III, Star's 47-point win matches the largest margin of victory this season, tying the Hotshots' own mark in a rout of Meralco in the Philippine Cup on January 28.
