MANILA, Philippines–Blackwater notched its first victory in the 2022 PBA Philippine Cup, taking down defending champion TNT, 85-78, Thursday night at Ynares Center in Antipolo City.

The Bossing used a feisty third quarter to pull away from the enemy, and then turned to their veterans to hold off the Tropang Giga’s spirited tries at a comeback during the payoff period.

JVee Casio scored the club’s final seven points, helping Blackwater wiggle out of a 78-all deadlock, and ultimately claim a victory that should serve as an encouraging sign for the franchise.

It could be recalled that the Bossing won just a single game last conference.
