PBA Commissioner’s Cup 2013 standings: February 20 results

Petron Blaze Boosters built a 22-point lead then held on to a two-point margin in the waning moments of the second game to win over Meralco Bolts, 88-86, and secure second place in the standings of PBA Commissioner’s Cup 2013.

The Bolts made a 17-0 after holding the Boosters scoreless in the first 7 minutes of the 4th quarter to make the game interesting. The game even got closer when Chris Ross made a triple at under 24 seconds remaining to make it 87-86. But Petron hit crucial free throws and did enough defensive to escape with a win. Junemar Fajardo was best player with 16 points, 12 rebounds and 3 blocks.
