MANILA, Philippines–NLEX hit a groove in the second period and never looked back on Saturday night, clobbering Converge, 115-93, in the PBA Philippine Cup.

Save for a shaky opening period, the Road Warriors made the FiberXers look like they didn’t belong on the same floor with them behind the brilliance of Robert Bolick, who reset his career’s finest scoring mark with 46 points.


Robbie Herndon, Jhan Nermal, and Baser Amer all finished with double-digit scores to help give the club its third win in four meetings and get a streak going.

“Good execution and guys coming off the bench well did us good,” said head coach Frankie Lim.

NLEX pulled away in the third and kept its foot on the pedal until the final horn, somehow showing that it has learned from its close shaves and its narrow loss to Terrafirma.

Converge drew 20 points from Justin Arana, 18 more from Bryan Santos. Alec Stockton and Schonny Winston added double-digit scores of their own.

The FiberXers dropped to 0-4 following the defeat, its dry spell spanning eight games since the skid that began during the last Commissioner’s Cup.

Bolick’s last career night was against Meralco, in a 101-95 overtime thriller in the 2022 Commissioner’s Cup. He was still plying his trade for NorthPort Batang Pier then.

NLEX plays Blackwater before going on a three-week break around the All-Star break. The Road Warriors will then take on the league’s marquee teams, starting with Magnolia on April 6.


Converge is set to battle the same foe on Saturday next week.
