MANILA, Philippines—Rain or Shine put a stop to its two-game skid as it turned back Magnolia, 75-72, in the 2021 PBA Philippine Cup Friday at DHVSU Gym in Bacolor, Pampanga.

With the fourth quarter becoming a tit-for-tat affair, rookie Santi Santillan and Beau Belga put up a five-point swing to give Rain or Shine a 72-68 lead with 1:42 to play.

Ian Sangalang cut the Painters’ lead to two, 72-70, with 1:26 remaining but Norbert Torres quickly answered with a jumper to give Rain or Shine a 74-70 cushion with 1:09 left in the game.

“It comes down to the little details especially in big games like this against a Magnolia team which is playing extremely well,” said Painters head coach Chris Gavina. “The margin for error against a team like this is very minimal.”
