PBA D-League: Che’Lu sends AMA packing to boost playoff bid
MANILA, Philippines—Che’Lu Bar and Grill dismantled AMA Online Education, 115-77, to maintain its place in the playoff race of the 2019 PBA D-League Thursday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
The Revellers opened up with a 10-0 spurt that eventually set the tone for the humbling the Titans would experience throughout the match.
Stephen Siruma led Che’Lu with 13 points and five assists while JayR Taganas added a double-double of 12 points, 10 rebounds, with five assists.
Che’Lu improved to a 5-3 record in the Aspirants Group while also eliminating the Titans who dropped to a 2-5 card after the loss.
“This is what I want from my team, to become a fighting one,” said Revellers head coach Stevenson Tiu in Filipino. “We may not be as experienced like last season but we still need our players to play their role.”
Rey Suerte, Mark Bringas, and Jhaps Bautista all had 11 points apiece to round out the double-digit scorers for Che’Lu.
Joshua Munzon had 26 points for the Titans.
