Rain or Shine flaunts depth, rips debuting Alaska
Packing a depth in manpower that the enemy couldn’t match, Rain or Shine on Sunday night broke away early from Alaska and went on to post an 85-72 triumph that kept the Elasto Painters within a breath of the PBA Philippine Cup pace at Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.
The Painters won a second straight game and rose to 4-1 to stay tugging at the coattails of the unbeaten Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters.
It wasn’t exactly the kind of tournament debut that the Aces were hoping for, but coming into the game without four key players–who more often that not are starters–Alaska was easy picking for Rain or Shine.
Rain or Shine now has victories over three of the tournament heavyweights, the other two being San Miguel Beer and Barangay Ginebra.
