BGY. GINEBRA GIN KINGS over MERALCO BOLTS, 89-64
Box scores. 

Barangay Ginebra San Miguel got back to the winning track as they continued the miseries of the struggling Meralco Bolts with an 89-64 win in the SMART BRO PBA Philippine Cup Tuesday at Alonte Sports Arena in Binan, Laguna.

Greg Slaughter scored 18 points and 14 rebounds, and he got enough help this time around as Ginebra (2-3) clinched its second win of the conference at the expense of the still-winless Meralco (0-5).

Japeth Aguilar also came up with 18 points and six boards, while the Gin Kings got surprise production from Nico Salva who finished with 12 and five.

Joe Devance, quiet all conference long, finally made his presence felt with eight points. The backcourt trio of LA Tenorio, Sol Mercado, and Mark Caguioa each made seven markers to complete the balanced attack by Ginebra.

The game was practically done as early as the second quarter when the Gin Kings pulled away.

Gary David, who had come off a 40-point explosion for the Bolts last Sunday, top-scored for Meralco but was just limited to 18 as they still failed to get a win.

Lines of the Game: 
Greg Slaughter (GIN) - 18pts, 14rebs, 3asts, 1stl, 1blk.
Chris Newsome (MER) - 13pts, 8rebs, 4asts, 2stls, 1blk.

Not even Gary David's shooting could save the Bolts here.
