Kia Picanto finally got on the win column, ironically also the first win for head coach Ricky Dandan as far as being a PBA coach is concerned.
San Miguel Beer ran away with another win, this time at the expense of the NLEX Road Warriors. However, the showdown had anxious moments with several incidents that added a bit of color.
