Gilas rains 3s late to down Blackwater

Gilas Pilipinas caught fire from downtown and nipped Blackwater, 105-101, in their tuneup game Friday at Meralco Gym.

Carl Bryan Cruz caught fire and drained 22 points, 11 of which coming in the fourth period, as he drilled three treys in the final 5:28 to ignite the Nationals’ huge finishing kick.

The hardworking Alaska forward drained the go-ahead trey with 2:21 to grab a 98-95 lead, and made two of his three freebies to extend the lead to five with 1:38 to play.

Christian Standhardinger added 13 markers, while Mike Myers chipped in 12 points in the win.

Gilas also beat NLEX, 113-112, in its first tuneup game on Wednesday.

The Nationals will face Alaska on Saturday…
