Al Thornton Exploded for 38 Points to help Nlex Beat Meralco 104-99!
It was a birthday treat indeed for me as I watch this game Live. It featured Baser Amer and League leading Meralco Bolts against NLEX Road Warriors, The Bolts come out guns blazing leading from the start to end the first half with a 7 point lead. 3rd quarter though was the man of the hour Al Thorton who dropped 20 points alone in that quarter as they finished it 81-79. Then they never looked back the locals was able to keep the lead with Thornton sitting for almost 5 minutes. It was a collective effort from the team that gave them the victory. Credits to Simon Enciso, Sean Anthony and Kevin Alas for giving the much needed support to Al Thornton who again ended the night with 38 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.
With the win NLEX boosted its record to 3-3 in a crowded 4-6 spot and Meralco dropped to 5-2 good enough for 2nd slot but its their 2nd defeat.
Here is the highlight of the game:
