Highlights: The Kraken was Unleashed as SMB Grinded a Win Against Rival TNT

SMB put rival TNT down in their first meeting after Commissioner Finals match 



Both teams look excited to see each other after their finals match last conference which was won by the San Miguel Beermen. This is the second game for both teams in the 2017 PBA Governors Cup and the match up against each other maybe a good gauge of how strong their teams are.

TNT started the game on fire leading the first quarter 24 -17 but SMB returned the favor back in the second to tie the ball game at the end of the half to 40 a piece. It was a rough and tough battle as both teams tried to claim their game against each other but SMB proved better as they had some breaks late in the game that resulted to a win in favor of the defending champion, 97 to 91.

Both teams were shooting 41% from the field, in fact, most of the stats are the same except for turnovers which plagued TNT at 26.

Fajardo lorded over again scoring a team high of 27 points, his rebounds were only 6 but he was able to block 5 shots.  Wendell Mckines followed the scoring parade at 22, Lassiter with 16 and Cabagnot with 15 points.

On the other hand, TNT import struggled with 16 points on an 8/25 (32%) shooting. It was a horrible shooting night for import Craig but nothing worst than his 6 turnovers.

Turnover leaders for TNT are Craig with 6, Tautuaa with 5 and  Williams and Pogoy with 3 a piece.

The scores:

SAN MIGUEL 97 - Fajardo 27, McKines 22, Lassiter 16, Cabagnot 15, Santos 7, Ross 5, Heruela 5, Espinas 0, Rosser 0.

TNT 91 - Craig 16, Castro 14, Pogoy 10, Tautuaa 10, De Ocampo 10, Williams 8, Garcia 8, Semerad 6, Rosario 5, Carey 4, Hernandez 0.

10 Hottest PBA Courtside Reporters

It's a good thing that these ladies weren't ranked in this video. Not only will it be too difficult, it will also be too unjust.

As the games in the PBA start heating up and the country is getting all the more hotter, these PBA courtside reporters isn't at all helping and is keeping the PBA smoldering hot. PBA and TV5 has done a great job in aqcuiring these intelligent and attractive courtside reporters.
