Supt. Anthony Padua scattered 18 points while Philip Phillips, Oscar Albayalde, Ireneo Dalogdalog and Alex Sintin combined for 35 points for the PNP Responders who are bidding to complete a title double in the tournament.

The Justice Boosters, on the other hand, banked heavily on Lipa City Prosecutor Nonilo Tagalicud’s 23 points to scuttle their rivals last-ditch comeback.

Meantime, Romulo Paras, Jr., Manuel Gerard Tomacruz and Jose Midas Marquez scored in double figures to help power the Judiciary Magis to a 90-59 drubbing of Bureau of Customs.

Paras fired 15 points while Marquez and Tomacruz combined for 27 points as the Magis bounced back from a shock defeat to DoJ in the opener.
