(UPDATED) Blackwater bounced back from a humiliating defeat to Bay Area with a 97-85 win over Phoenix Super LPG on Saturday's PBA Commissioner's Cup at Mall of Asia Arena.

The Bossing leaned on a strong fourth quarter to take down the Fuel Masters.

Baser Amer led the Bossing's balanced attack with 24 points, while import Cameron Krutwig added 17 points to go with his 16 rebounds and 7 assists.

Four other Bossing dished out double-digit figures as they improved to 1-1.

From tight 72-69 advantage after three quarters, Blackwater opened the fourth period with outside shots from from Baser Amer and Rashawn McCarthy and inside attack by Renato Ular, Rey Suerte and Troy Rosario.

This widened the gap to 91-77.

Repeated rallies managed Phoenix to pull to within 12, but that is the closest it could get.

Kaleb Avery Weeson scored 28 points on top of his 26 rebounds for Phoenix. RR Garcia added 13, while Javee Mocon had 11 markers in the Fuel Masters' second straight defeat.
