In a game that featured 14 deadlocks and 15 lead changes, and neither team leading by 10 or more points, this one came down to the final seconds, with Rice proving to be the difference-maker.

At the right place and at the right time, Rice picked up an air-balled 3-point attempt by Jayson Castro and turned it into a bucket with 10 seconds left in the game to give TNT a 116-114 lead.

"It was a good pass. I just happen to be open," Rice joked.

In the next play, Rain Or Shine missed a chance to tie the score in a case of miscommunication when J’Nathan Bullock’s pass found no receivers, leading to a turnover.
