Magnolia Chicken Timplados exploded for 47 points in a critical third-quarter scoring burst to turn back Meralco, 108-96 and keep its twice-to-beat quarterfinal incentive alive in their 2022-23 PBA Commissioner's Cup Sunday night at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City.

Paul Lee stepped up big time on offense, firing five triples en route to a team-best 27 points, 11 of which happened in the decisive third quarter Magnolia run. Energetic forward Calvin Abueva came off the bench to add 17 points, while import Nick Rakocevic had 16 and 20 rebounds in another scintillating effort to help Magnolia improve to 9-2 with just a game left in the eliminations.
