The 7-foot-tall Slaughter, who currently leads the league in the statistical points race for the Best Player of the Conference award, was held to below double figures in rebounding for a second straight game.
Though he finished with 19 points he didn’t have his usual impact on the boards even as the taller Kings lost the rebounding battle, 42-39, against the rugged, hard-working Elasto Painters. He also had five turnovers in the game.
Slaughter credited Rain or Shine for taking away the rhythm of Ginebra, which entered the contest on a three-game winning run....
Jeff Chan scored a team-high 19 points, 14 of those in an impressive fourth quarter performance, to lead the Elasto Painters to a 6-1 record, tying Alaska and San Miguel on top of the standings.

The fifth-seed Gin Kings (4-3) are currently enjoying a three-game winning streak, something they had never done over a year. They routed GlobalPort last Wednesday, 85-70....
