Both these CBL outfits came close to posting century marks before settling for big margin wins. While the Fighters, who lost to Mekong Tigers in the CBL final showdown late last year, brought out their big guns to blow out Chuan Yu SH 98-27.

Meanwhile, Bayon Airlines scored a 81-69 win over Le Da Wang.
