Troy Rosario showcased his evolving skill set as the Tropang Talk ‘N Text drew first blood on the Alaska Aces, 106-99, in the first game of the best-of-three quarterfinals series of the 2016 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

Rosario made his presence felt finishing the game with a career-high 31 points.

Rosario, the 2015 2nd overall draft pick, exploded in the arc with 7-on-10 three-point shooting.

The rookie delivered three clutch treys for Tropang TnT to save his team from Aces’ spirited comeback. He also amassed a total of 18 points in the first half, 12 coming from his 4-on-4 3-point field goal on the second frame.

Talk ‘N Text capitalized on Rosario’s hot hand on the first half to hold an early 15-point advantage against the Aces, 57-42.

Down the stretch, Rosario hit a putback off a Jason Castro missed lay-up with an additional bonus marker to extend Talk ‘N Text’s lead, 102-97.
