“We shot the ball well especially Michael [Madanly], and we made shots break the game open,” said Katropa head coach Jong Uichico. “And we also played good defense.”

TNT posted a 54 percent shooting clip while also holding down Phoenix to just 46 percent.

Katropa opened the floodgates in the third quarter to douse the Fuel Masters with a 22-6 run.

Madanly waxed hot from the floor putting up a team-high 30 points, including 24 from behind the arc, while Mychal Ammons added 22 points and 18 rebounds.
