Justin Chua added 18 points, 8 rebounds and 3 blocks, as the Fuel Masters evened their best-of-5 series at 1-1.
Ray Parks Jr. finished with a career-high 41 points to go with 10 3-pointers, but he fouled out in the fourth quarter just as Tropang Giga made it a game.
"We know Ray Parks would really light it up. We respect him for being a scorer," Robinson said.
"Ang importante sa amin everybody's involved. Defending Ray Parks is not just one guy's responsibility."
The Fuel Masters were on the verge of coasting to victory after a 34-18 second quarter and leading by as many as 18 points.
But Tropang Giga got their rhythm back in the second half.
They went ahead 92-90 on a Troy Rosario layup with 5:15 remaining in the game, but TNT couldn't take advantage of the momentum change when Parks was called for his 6th foul in the next play.
Abueva made the 2 free throws, Perkins hit a basket to give Phoenix back the lead, and Alex Mallari hit a 3-pointer off an assist by Abueva to give the Fuel Masters breathing space.
Tropang Giga couldn't make it a 1-possession game after.
On a night leading scorer Matthew Wright remained hobbled, Phoenix again banked on a balance workload.
RJ Jazul chipped in 16 points and 3 3-pointers, RR Garcia had 12 points, while Brian Huruela added 10 for Phoenix, which was awarded 41 free throws and made 34 (82%).
TNT was 18 of 22 (81%) from the line.
