Up three, 87-84, against an opponent that muffed several attempts to inch closer, Rain or Shine kicked off a strong finishing run triggered by a desperation triple from Kwame Alexander to hike its record to 2-5, dragging the Elite to the same card.

Alexander, who seemed to hobble his way through the game, knocked in a tough challenged triple that lit the wick of a 15-1 run to end the game.
