Phoenix won their first PBA Philippine Cup match on Friday, using the lessons learned from two previous losses to ruin Terrafirma 97-74, giving coach Topex Robinson something good to look forward to.

“[We thought] as long as we move the ball and play beautiful basketball together, we will have a chance [at winning]”Robinson said after making 17 points, nine rebounds and five assists from Jason Perkins at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.

“We learned so many lessons – how to behave together when Terrafirma becomes difficult. What we agreed on was to play together. “

San Miguel Beer remained perfect after winning 87-81 over Magnolia in the nightcap.

Mo Tautuaa came off the bench to shoot with 19 points and overtake the voters, who rose to 3-0, bringing the Hotshots their third loss in four games.

Matthew Wright, the cornerstone of the Fuel Masters, who will leave the team after the conference to play in Japan, finished with 11 points and 10 assists to help Phoenix lead by 35 points – the biggest in the youth tournament so far.

Phoenix rose to 1-2 and will take some form of momentum in their next game, which will be against newcomer Converge on Sunday.

“They are a terrible team. I mean, they play great together, “Robinson told FiberXers, whose three losses against great teams were close.
