It is not how you start, it's how you finish the game.

NLEX Road Warriors looked like they have found the road to a win early in the game and the path seemed so clear until they found a roadblock in the 4th quarter.

The Road Warriors finished the first quarter with an impressive 42 -22  and the scoring rampage went up to the end of the 3rd quarter.  One more quarter and NLEX Road Warriors can finally get the elusive win this conference.

But the TNT defense suddenly tightens in the fourth and the Road Warriors could not find a bucket. They were limited to only 12 points in the 4th while TNT was able to retain their steady ascent as they scored 30 points in the last 3 quarters that enabled them to come back and tie the game at the end of the 4th quarter at 113 all.

The momentum continued to shift to TNT and they were able to complete one of the biggest comebacks in recent years with the help of Jayson Castro who went to contribute 32 points, 11 assists including the critical one to RDO in the corner that sent the game to overtime.

Jayson Castro was chosen the best player of the game and has mentioned in tagalog that their coach said to do it piece by piece, that they should not give up and that he should show that he is fighting and that he leads by example for others to follow including the rookies.

TNT has won 3 games in a row while NLEX is still winless with 5 losses.


Scores:

TNT 126 - Castro 32, Greene 26, De Ocampo 22, Pogoy 20, Rosario 16, Williams 6, Fonacier 2, Carey 2, Rosales 0, Reyes 0, Tamsi 0.

NLEX 121 - Chism 35, Alas 19, Lastimosa 13, Tiongson 10, Camson 7, Khobuntin 7, Al-Hussaini 7, Anthony 6, Taulava 4, Rios 3, Guinto 3, J. Villanueva 2, Soyud 2, Baracael 2, Lanete 1.

Quarterscores: 22-42, 53-76, 83-101, 113-113, 126-121.
