The baby-faced assassin struck again.

Larry Fonacier came up big in the final frame for Coach Norman Black and the Tropang Texters, hitting several key jumpers that kept the fiery, if depleted, Petron Blaze Boosters at bay. The former King Eagle ended up with 21 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 triples.

Fonacier, who suited up for the mens national team for the first time earlier this year, is having a banner season. In 8 games so far, hes averaging 14.0ppg, 5.3rpg, 2.9apg, and 1.4spg in 35.5 minutes per outing. All of those numbers are CAREER-HIGHS. Hes also second on the squad in terms of player efficiency, behind only Jayson Castro.

With the Texters remaining atop the standings and looking at another winning romp through the Philippine Cup, the spotlight will continue to fall on Larry Fonacier. His performance will be seen as a reliable barometer for just how far TNT can go.

Game Recaps:
RAIN OR SHINE ELASTO-PAINTERS over ALASKA ACES, 101-93

Against the hottest team in the league, the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters rode the even hotter shooting of Jeff Chan to complete a come-from-behind 101-93 victory Wednesday night over the Alaska Aces at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

The Elasto Painters Negros Sniper sizzled for 12 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter to help his team snap the Aces five-game winning run.

Alaska is the hottest team, but the streak has to end somehow, said Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao. The law of averages is working for us in this game, pareho, yung Meralco and Alaska, two hot teams, na natyempuhan namin, but we have to grind it out.

Alaska looked poised to continue its streak, leading 57-47 early in the second half before taking a 77-71 heading into the fourth quarter. But Rain or Shine tightened up its defense in the pivotal period, outscoring Alaska 30-16, to notch its sixth win in eight games, which is good for solo second place.

It was only in the late stages of the fourth when we were able to breakaway, said Guiao.

JR Quinahan also had a great shooting game, scoring 20 points on 8-of-14 shooting from the field. The Rain or Shine frontline also helped hound Alaska star rookie Calvin Abueva into his worst game as a professional, with the ex-San Sebastian forward posting just seven points and six rebounds.

But Guiao said Abueva wasnt the focal point of Rain or Shines preparation for the game.

We didnt prepare for The Beast. Mas focused kami doon sa mga surot na pumepesta ng kalaban like [JVee] Casio and [Cyrus] Baguio, said Guiao.

Chan and Quinahan led a balanced Rain or Shine attack that saw seven players scoring at least seven points apiece.

JVee Casio and Cyrus Baguio carried the fight with 16 points each for Alaska, which saw its win-loss record to 5-3.

ROS 101- Chan 22, Quinahan 20, Arana 13, Rodriguez 12, Norwood 9, Matias 8, Belga 7, Tang 4, Ibanes 4, Cruz 2
ALA 93- Casio 16, Baguio 16, Espinas 13, Baracael 9, Dela Cruz 8, Hontiveros 8, Abueva 7, Jazul 6, Thoss 4, Laure 4, Eman 2, Reyes 0
QS: 22-25, 43-47, 71-77, 101-93

TALK N TEXT TROPANG TEXTERS over PETRON BLAZE BOOSTERS, 92-82

Talk N Text pounced on an undermanned Petron Blaze squad for a trouble-free 92-82 victory Wednesday night in the PBA Philippine Cup at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

The Boosters played with only eight men, but still stood toe-to-toe with the Tropang Texters in the first half. But the reigning Philippine Cup champions took care of business in the second half.

Talk N Text took advantage of injuries to Petrons top three centers June Mar Fajardo, Dorian Pea, and Danny Ildefonso to score 15 second chance points.

Fajardo (swollen scrotum) and Ildefonso (dislocated shoulder) were joined by Pea, the latest addition to the Boosters sick bay.

I hurt my knee, Pena told InterAKTV. Its not ACL though, but its hurting.

Petron also played minus Marcio Lassiter, who had a viral infection.

In a desperation move, the Boosters enlisted free agent center Brian Faundo, who played 20 minutes and produced four points.

The brunt of the work, however, fell on the shoulders of Arwind Santos and Jay Washington, who combined for 33 points and 17 rebounds. But Talk N Text was too much for the star duo.

We played a much better second half. In the first half we gave a lot of turnover and fastbreak points, said Talk N Text coach Norman Black. I told my players that we wont win a basketball game if we dont get back on defense.

Four players led by Larry Fonacier, finished in double figures for the Tropang Texters. He had 21 points, six rebounds and four assists in a solid all-around game.

TNT 92- Fonacier 21, Williams 16, De Ocampo 14, Alapag 13, Aban 9, Carey 6, Castro 5, Ferriols 4, Alvarez 2, Peek 2, Raymundo 0, Gamalinda 0
PET 82- Lutz 18, Santos 17, Washington 16, Yeo 10, Duncil 7, Miranda 6, Faundo 4, Cabagnot 4
QS: 17-23, 42-42, 69-60, 92-82
