Raymond Almazan FTs save the day for Rain Or Shine

Jason Weatherspoon scored 25 points and grabbed 15 rebounds, and Raymond Almazan also contributed a double-double, including the game-clinching free throws, to help Rain Or Shine outlast GlobalPort 98-96 in the PBA Governor's Cup at Araneta Coliseum on Friday.

Almazan, who finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds off the bench, nailed 2 free throws after he was fouled by Billy Mamaril in a loose-ball play with 4 seconds to go.

Terrence Romeo's 3-pointer was off the mark in the ensuing play, securing Rain Or Shine's win.

While Weatherspoon was efficient from the field (11 of 18, 61%), he was subpar on the free-throw line, making only 3 of 13 for 23%.

"We did terrible on the free throws but in the end when Raymond got that offensive board and the free throw, those shots are big shots," Rain Or Shine coach Caloy Garcia said.

"Throughout the game, I told the players that GlobalPort will never give up. They are such a very high-scoring team. I think they got the best ball-handling in the PBA. It's really hard to defend them."
