Meralco gave San Mig Super Coffee a perfect dose of its own medicine and earned a fitting reward.
Working behind a dominant second half performance, the Bolts compounded the woes of the struggling Mixers with a convincing 88-78 victory Monday night to seize solo fourth spot in the PBA Commissioners Cup at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
After losing momentum in the second canto while staring at a 39-41 deficit at the break, the Bolts unloaded a telling 18-2 onslaught to start the third canto then took control for good behind their sustained defensive stance to pile up more misery on the depleted Mixers side.
Import Darnell Jackson banged in a double-double outing of 31 points and 18 rebounds while locals Jared Dillinger (21 markers) and Gary David (18) provided the usual numbers that enabled Meralco to gain a fitting follow-up to a 105-98 win over Barako Bull last Friday and finished its eliminations campaign with a 5-4 mark.
