PBA Quarter finals Rain or Shine vs Blackwater Dec 26, results, replay, video and recap. Philippine Cup 2015 schedule December 26, 2015 held venue @ Mall of ASIA Arena Saturday 3:00PM.
Blackwater may be a huge underdog against Rain or Shine in the franchise’s first playoff game on Saturday.
But hope is still not lost on the Elite, more so for head coach Leo Isaac.
“We’ll do our very best,” he said. “Considering what happened to them, we know (Rain or Shine) is going to vent its frustration on us.”
And the Elasto Painters have all the reasons in the world to do just that, squandering a chance to advance outright to the semifinals after their 111-106 defeat to NLEX last Saturday and relegated to the number 3-spot.
Coach Yeng Guiao, however, would rather look at their situation with a positive outlook.
The third-seeded Rain or Shine Elasto Painters received a bit of a scare from a game Blackwater but prevailed, 95-90, to advance to next phase of the SMART BRO PBA Philippine Cup on Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena game match-up highlights and replay here.
Rain or Shine, which came close to clinching one of the two outright semifinal berths in the elimination round, allowed an underdog Blackwater squad to tie the game at 75-all in the fourth quarter despite leading by double-digits earlier in the contest.
