Northport built a big lead and kept it on Wednesday to beat Magnolia 102-99 in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup at Araneta Coliseum.

Up by as many as 16 points in the second half, Northport’s advantage was down to single digits inside the last two minutes. Fortunately, the Batang Pier were cool and calm, hitting timely shots to preserve the win.

Northport once again grabbed a share of first place, tying idle Blackwater on top of the team standings with identical 5-1 records.

Magnolia remained winless after two assignments.
