Racela, Rice agree Painters played more aggressively to force KO game

MANILA, Philippines — Both coach Nash Racela and TNT import Glen Rice Jr. are well aware of their team’s shortcomings against Rain or Shine in their PBA Governors' Cup quarterfinal duel on Wednesday night.

“Rain or Shine was just more aggressive … That’s the kind of energy that you want to display for 48 minutes and I think today, we just did it in the end,” the mentor said.

“It’s gonna be hard for the team if we play like that only for a quarter or half a quarter,” chimed in Rice.

TNT mounted a furious rally in the fourth period, looking to dig themselves out of a 20-point rut. Kelly Williams and Jayson Castro combined for 15 points in the final frame to cut the deficit down to just four in lemon time.

But Rain or Shine proved they just wanted the victory more during the first quarterfinals affair at MOA Arena, forcing a do-or-die on Friday night.
