MANILA, Philippines–TNT completed a fightback and pull off a hard-earned 21-17 win over Cavitex to claim another leg championship in the PBA 3×3 on Sunday at Robinsons Place Novaliches.

Almond Vosotros carried Tropang Giga once again, sparking a telling 12-4 run that helped the Tropang Giga capture the final of Leg 3. He put together 12 straight points in a five-minute stretch as TNT wiped out a 13-9 lead from Cavitex.

He finished with a game-high 15 points including the game-winning deuce with still 2:40 to play amid a wild celebration from the TNT side which had coach Mau Belen, and players Lervin Flores Gryann Mendoza, and Rey Mark Acuno.

This was TNT’s second leg championship this conference, having won the Leg 1 title before losing Leg 2 to J&T Express last week.

The Tropang Giga also haven’t missed the leg finals this conference, and the last six dating back to the First Conference.

IT was a sorry loss for Cavitex, which controlled the early goings of the match, and led by four before Vosotros suddenly caught fire.

Bong Galanza and rookie Sherwin Concepcion each had five points to show the way for the Braves, who bagged the P50,000 runner-up purse.

Meanwhile, Meralco salvaged some measure of pride by taking third place in its battle against Barangay Ginebra, 17-15.

The scores:

Third place
Meralco (17) – De Vera 7, Batino 6, Manlangit 3, Gonzaga 1.
Ginebra (15) – Aurin 8, Villamor 4, Gumaru 2, Cu 1.
