MANILA, Philippines – The Powerade Tigers used a huge second half to ease the Clickers out of contention, 102-84, in the PBA Philippines Cup on Friday.

“It’s been a struggle in our minds why we lost games when we could have won it… But I think we have the mindset that we wouldn’t give up.”

Lassiter led the Tigers with 21 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds. Kramer had 17 points and 10 rebounds.

James Sena topscored for the Clickers with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Elmer Espiritu, Paul Escobal, and Paolo Hubalde added 12 points each.
