MANILA, Philippines—TNT survived a tit-for-tat affair to shut Meralco’s lights off, 21-19, and claim the first leg title of the 2022 PBA 3×3 season Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The game boiled down to a shootout between Almond Vosotros and Tonino Gonzaga but it was the Tropang Giga’s resident shooter who won the exchange.
