MANILA, PHILIPPINES — TNT Tropang Giga was no-nonsense in its pursuit to eliminate Phoenix Super LPG Wednesday with a recorded score of 132-105. 

The TNT is preparing to battle against any opponent in the Semifinals of the PBA Governor’s Cup in the final four.

“I like it, I like it so much,” said court icon Jojo Lastismosa when the coach was asked about his impression after his team’s strong performance. 

He acknowledged, however, that the near future battles with other formidable teams could be challenging and that they are prepared to give it their best shot. 

“I think we just need to play our game,” Lastimosa remarked on TNT’s offense which is highest in the league with 118.5 points. “I think our offense is natural. When you see us (play), we’re not running any sets. They’re just playing.”

He also said he was aware that Meralco and Magnolia kept their challengers down with less than 100 points but that TNT is ready to face them head-on.
