0

The Aces continued to display their familiar form after an alarming losing start as they dispatched GlobalPort, 101-88, to keep their flickering playoff hopes alive in the PBA Governors’ Cup on Friday night at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Buoyed by their breakthrough 90-79 win over San Miguel Beer last Saturday that snapped a franchise-worst 14-game skid, the Aces broke away from a nip-and-tuck battle down the stretch to build some momentum at the crucial juncture of eliminations.[tptabs_ultimate width=”” initialtab=1 autoplayinterval=0 color=”dark”]

Buck Henton sustained his stellar play, tallying 36 points, 21 boards, and four assists, while Calvin Abueva sparked the late salvo for the Aces, who dealt the Batang Pier their second successive setback and fifth overall in eight games.

The Aces benefited from absence of GlobalPort star guard Stanley Pringle, who’s mourning the passing of his father in the US.
