Rain or Shine shoots for a sweep vs Ginebra
A win away from advancing to the semifinals, Rain or Shine doesn’t want to give Ginebra any window of opportunity when they meet again for Game 2 of their best-of-three quarterfinals series.
The two teams clash on Tuesday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. Game time is at 4:15 p.m.
The Elasto Painters eked out an 88-84 victory on Sunday after falling behind by 19 early on.
“We fell down by 19 early, but we just kept our focus, played it possession-per-possession and just hang in there and play with some patience,” said coach Yeng Guiao.
More than the squandered lead, the Gin Kings feel the win was taken away from them due to the turn of events which transpired in the final minute.
Still, past is past, and it’s up to coach Tim Cone to get his team together to force a winner-take-all Game 3.
