Rain or Shine, Meralco kick off Quarterfinals

April 21, 2014

Rain or Shine head coach Yeng Guiao. Sports5/Pranz Kaeno BillonesThe Rain or Shine Elasto Painters, who beat Barangay Ginebra last night to secure the 4th spot, meets the well-rested Meralco Bolts in Game 1 of their Best-of-3 uarterfinals series today at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Game starts at 5:45pm.

While The Elasto painters had to go through an overtime last night, the Bolts haven't played in 8 days since beating San Mig Coffee last April 14. Fatigue could be a factor tonight.

“This is where we want to be,” said Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao. “We had a slow start this conference and all we wanted to do is to be in the quarterfinals on an even matchup without any disadvantage.”...

Faith in import Wayne Chism finally paying off for Rain or Shine

April 21, 2014

Rain or Shine import Wayne Chism. Sports5/Pranz Kaeno BillonesWhen Rain or Shine import Wayne Chism struggled for just six points is the Elasto Painters’ victory last week over the Air 21 Express, coach Yeng Guiao quickly stepped in to reaffirm his faith in his player.

“I don’t think this is the way he plays,” said Guiao after that game. “He’s a lot better in practice. It gives us hope.”

On Sunday night against Barangay Ginebra San Miguel, Chism bounced back in a big way, scoring 30 points, grabbing 15 rebounds, and blocking five shots to lead the Elasto Painters to a crucial win over the Gin Kings....

‘Sanay na kami’: Grueling back-to-back games not a problem for Rain or Shine

April 21, 2014

Rain or Shine Elasto Painters. Sports5/Pranz Kaeno BillonesThe Rain or Shine Elasto Painters clinched the fourth seed in the PLDT Home TVolution Commissioner’s Cup playoffs on Sunday with a hard-earned 105-101 overtime victory over Barangay Ginebra San Miguel.

It was an important win for the squad, which would have fallen to No. 7 for a twice-to-win disadvantage if it had lost the game.

But there was no time to celebrate for Rain or Shine as they have less than 24 hours to gear up for a matchup against the fifth seed Meralco Bolts in Game One of their quarterfinals series on Monday....

Rain or Shine hangs on in OT, sends Ginebra to eighth place

April 21, 2014

2013 third overall pick Raymond Almazan of Rain or Shine (R) eludes the defense of 2013 first overall pick Greg Slaughter of Ginebra. Nuki SabioThe Rain or Shine Elasto Painters got a break when Greg Slaughter missed two go-ahead free throws at the tailend of the fourth quarter. They took full advantage of it by defeating the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Kings 105-101 in overtime, Sunday night at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

The win by the Elasto Painters gave them a 5-4 record, and a best-of-three series against the Meralco Bolts. Ginebra on the other hand was doomed to eighth place, up against the undefeated Talk 'N Text Tropang Texters, who are armed with a twice-to-beat advantage.

In the other pairings, San Miguel Beermen, who have the other twice-to-beat edge, play the Air21 Express, while the Alaska Aces and the San Mig Coffee Mixers, who played tonight's curtain-opener, do battle again, with each team needing two wins to advance....

Rain or Shine, Ginebra clash for No. 6 spot

April 20, 2014

Coach Yeng Guiao reacts after referee’s call. PBA IMAGE by Nuki SabioMANILA, Philippines — Rain or Shine, a finalist in the last two PBA conferences, and Barangay Ginebra, a side which its throng of diehards feel has underachieved in the same span, clash Sunday for the critical No. 6 spot in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup playoffs at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Game time is 5:15 p.m. with the Gin Kings unveiling a returning import in the undersized Gabriel Freeman and the Elasto Painters trying to make do with Wayne Chism, whom coach Yeng Guiao describes as impressive in practice.

The Painters have drawn little offensive mileage from Chism, and if Rain or Shine plays to the run-and-gun style of the Kings which Freeman likes, then Guiao and his boys could be in for a lot of trouble Sunday night....
