Mahinda still breathing after zapping Meralco

Don't count Mahindra out just yet.

The Floodbuster put on another solid performance, beating the Meralco Bolts, 105-92, last night to stay breathing in the Philippine Basketball Association Philippine Cup last night at the Araneta Coliseum.
It was the second straight win for the Floodbuster, who now improved their win-loss mark to 2-5, and tied the Nlex Road Warriors at 10th to 11th places.
The loss was the fifth straight for the Bolts, who now dropped at the cellar with a 2-6 card.
Philip Paniamogan had a breakout performance,  finishing with a career high 25 points, including 7-of-9 shooting from beyond the arc.
Mahindra coach Chris Gavina wasn't surprised to see Paniamogan' s coming out party.
"I saw that coming following our performance during a Christmas game," Gavina told sportswriters after the game. "Even during the break he asked me if he could work out. He just did what he had to do. A true consumate of a pro."
Five other players also contributed double digit outputs.
Jason Duetchman, Alex Mallari, and Nico Salva added 13, Michael Digregorio had 11, including back-to-back treys entering the last two minutes that gave the Floodbuster a 101-85 advantage.
Rookie Russell Escoto chipped in 10.
