Bolts 89, Aces 74

Meralco put to halt Alaska's winning streak in the PBA Commissioner's Cup following a methodical 89-74 victory last 17 June at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The Bolts went on a third quarter tear behind the trio of Chris Newsome, Jared Dillinger, and import Arinze Onuaku to finally take control of the game pitting two of the league's most disciplined teams.

Bolts 103, Phoenix 100

Meralco survived a late explosion from Matthew Wright to outlast Phoenix, 103-100, in an overtime thriller in the PBA Commissioner's Cup last 8 June at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The Bolts rode the heroics of Baser Amer and KG Canaleta to dominate play in regulation but had to endure an outburst from Wright, who drained a tough three-pointer to send the game into overtime before scoring the Fuel Masters' first eight points in the extension.

Bolts 93, Ginebra 82

Nothing can save Barangay Ginebra now, not even the return of Justin Brownlee last 1 June, after the Meralco Bolts extended the misery of the crowd favorites with a 93-82 defeat in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Mall of Asia Arena.
