Chris Newsome knocked down big baskets as Meralco slipped past Magnolia in overtime 109-104 Tuesday night in the PBA Philippine Cup at the Angeles University Foundation Sports and Cultural Center.

Newsome hit a go-ahead three entering the final two minutes and drained a difficult corner shot in the dying seconds of the extra period to help the Bolts bounce back from Sunday’s loss to Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and improve to 2-2.

He finished with 23 points, seven rebounds and six assists while coach Norman Black got major contributions from backup guards Trevis Jackson and rookie Aaron Black who combined for 26 points in lieu of the struggles of starting playmaker Baser Amer.
