Analyn Almazan added four markers, all from the charity stripe, while Fria Bernardo chipped in a pair, including the game-clinching freebie.

Game 2 is on Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Ara Abaca got six points for Rain or Shine, but missed her attempt as the E-Painters fightback fell short in yhe end.
