Purefoods Star Hotshots was one of deadliest team couple of conferences ago. This night, they showed some flashes of that form. The Hotshots dumped Blackwater elite to bag their first win of the conference.
The Hotshots controlled the game early and never looked back. They were very active in both end and did not show any signs of slowing down during the game. They register the biggest lead of 28 points.
Purefoods Star Hotshots was spearheaded by former PBA best import, Denzel Bowles, with 28 points and eight rebounds. He was complimented very well by the one-time controversial Hotshot player, Allen Maliksi, who came off the bench to register 23 points.
Blackwater Elite was led by their import, MJ Rhett, who had another monster game with 30 points and 21 rebounds. While Carlo Lastimosa added 20 points, but was scoreless in the fourth quarter.
