TNT banked on Jayson Castro’s heroics down the stretch to preserve a 95-92 win over Phoenix Super LPG Wednesday and take the opener of their PBA Philippine Cup semifinals at the Angeles University Foundation Sports and Cultural Center.

Castro scored nine of the team’s final 14 points as the Tropang Giga weathered the Fuel Masters’ comeback despite missing ace scorer Matthew Wright to an ankle injury in the first quarter to gain a headstart in their best-of-five series.

The TNT captain finished with 20 points, six rebounds, six assists and two steals while Ray Parks Jr. added 17 points, seven rebounds, three assists and four blocks.
