PBA 3×3: TNT exacts vengeance on Cavitex, rules Leg 6

TNT thwarted Cavitex’s bid for a piece of PBA 3×3 history as the Triple Giga defeated the Braves with a score of 21-17, securing victory in Leg 6 of the Season 3 First Conference on Tuesday at Ayala Malls Trinoma.

Gryan Mendoza, with seven points, led the Triple Giga’s effort in preventing the Braves from achieving the distinction of being the first team to win three consecutive legs in the tournament.

By clinching the champion’s purse of P100,000, TNT secured its second title of this conference, adding to their victory in Leg 3 three weeks ago.

This triumph also bodes well for the team’s pursuit of a spot in the First Conference grand finals, scheduled for August 13 at Ayala Malls Market! Market!

Under the guidance of Coach Mau Belen, the Triple Giga completed a grand slam last season, sweeping all three conferences.
