That’s what James Yap is expecting as the Mixers tied their best-of-seven semifinals series to one apiece Friday night with a 106-82 blowout of the Elastopainters.

“Alam naman natin ang Rain or Shine, hindi basta-bastang team, babalik at babalik ‘yon,” said Yap, who torched Rain or Shine with 34 points, including seven treys.

“It’s going to be a more physical game in game three. Kailangan mapantayan ‘yong physical play,” added Yap.

It was Yap’s highest output in almost two years since dropping 36 back in the semifinals game one against Talk N’ Text of the 2010 PBA Philippine Cup.
