MANILA, Philippines–Converge went on a torrid shooting display before handing TNT a 130-117 beating to raise its winning streak to three games in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

An offensive blitz at the start highlighted the FiberXers’ unexpected rout of the fancied Tropang Giga and allowed them to go 4-2 halfway into the elimination round campaign.

“The players are already absorbing what kind of approach that we want,” said coach Aldin Ayo on the fast-paced offense he’s implementing since he took over before the start of the midseason conference.
