Tanduay continued to gain steam going into the 2017 PBA D-League Foundation Cup quarterfinals, nipping Racal Motors, 81-72 Thursday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

With their fifth straight victory, the Rhum Masters ended their eliminations campaign with an 8-2 slate, while also giving team owner Bong Tan, who was in the audience, a win.

“Every time he watches, we loses, so we just wanted to break that and also continue our momentum so that we’ll go home smiling,” said coach Lawrence Chongson said of the no-bearing game for the third-seed Tanduay.

Von Tambeling led the Rhum Masters with 13 points, three rebounds, and two assists, while James Martinez got 12 markers and three dimes.
