PBA Governors Cup 2016 Purefoods Star Hotshots vs Meralco replay,result,recap. - September 4,2016

STAR showed who the best defensive team in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup is as it frustrated Meralco, 108-90, to grab the solo lead in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Wednesday night at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

The Hotshots, who came in second behind the Bolts in the points-allowed department, proved they were better at least on this night as they held the Bolts scoreless for more than seven minutes at the start of the payoff period to pull away.

Ricardo Ratliffe was again the anchor down low, tallying 32 points and 13 boards for the Hotshots, who won for the eighth time in 10 games to break a tie with their victims, who fell to a 7-3 win-loss record.

The result put to waste an all-around effort from Chris Newsome, who registered 25 points, eight assists, seven boards, and three steals.
