MANILA, Philippines—Rain or Shine made sure Blackwater won’t be snapping its losing streak yet as it opened its campaign with a 92-79 win in the 2021 PBA Governors’ Cup Thursday at Ynares Sports Arena.

The Bossing, who owns the longest losing streak in PBA history, dropped their 20th straight loss in a skid that started in the 2020 Philippine Cup.

The Elasto Painters, however, had their work cut out for them as they had to come back from a 41-35 first half deficit with an absolute showcase in the third quarter as they outscored the Bossing 31-12 to take a 66-53 lead heading into the fourth.

“Everybody talks about our culture of finding a way and that was our quote for the day, the players did find a way,” said Rain or Shine head coach Chris Gavina.

“Everyone wants to win on their first game because it sets the tone for the rest of the conference.”

Henry Walker, who previously played for Blackwater, finished with 20 points, eight rebounds, one steal, and two blocks for the Elasto Painters while Javee Mocon and Rey Nambatac both had 16 points.

Rashawn McCarthy led the Bossing with 15 points, nine rebounds, and four assists while Barkley Eboña added 14 points and 11 boards.

Jaylen Bond made his PBA debut with 13 points, 11 rebounds, and three steals for Blackwater.
