The Pampanga G Lanterns and the San Juan Kings made short work of their respective opponents Thursday night to stay unscathed in the Manila Bankers Life-Pilipinas Super League Pro Division Second Conference Dumper Cup at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in Pampanga.

Michael Garcia uncorked 19 points, on top of three rebounds and five assists as Pampanga thumped Bagong Cabuyao-Homelab Nation 103-83 for its third straight win.

Former PBA big man Jammer Jamito chipped in a double-double of 13 markers and 11 boards, while Alecis Ramos and Jayson Apolonio combined for 22 as the Lanterns sustained the fiery showing they also typified in an 83-59 shellacking of Quezon City last Dec. 29.
