PBA: Tanduay clobbers Topstar ZC by 55

Games Thursday (Ynares Sports Arena, Pasig)
4 p.m. Topstar ZC Mindanao vs AMA
6 p.m. Cafe France vs Phoenix

Tanduay blasted Topstar ZC Mindanao in a 55-point rout, 133-78 yesterday in the 2016 PBA D-League Foundation Cup at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Hitting their shots with deadly precision in the second quarter, the Rhum Masters sustained that groove in the second half to record the most points in D-League history with 133, topping NLEX’s previous record of 125 set on January 30 two years ago against Zambales M-Builders.

Reden Celda led the charge with 20 points, six rebounds and three assists, sparking the pullaway with an 11-0 start.

Kim Lo made the most of the extended garbage time, notching a double-double with 17 markers and 13 rebounds, while Gelo Alolino registered 17 points and six assists.

Five other Tanduay players scored in double digits, as all 13 players, save for Rudy Lingganay, made a field goal in the victory.

“Actually di ako satisfied sa first half namin because we allowed them to score 48 points. Di sa minamaliit ko ang Mindanao, but they’re not one of the big boys kaya pinagalitan ko sila at halftime and gave them a tongue-lashing,” said coach Lawrence Chongson.

Tanduay also remained in the running for the top two spots with a 6-3 slate, bouncing back its 108-95 defeat to Phoenix last Tuesday.
