Here are the live scores, updates, and results of the 2022 PBA Commissioner’s Cup between the Talk ‘N Text TNT Tropang Giga and the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters scheduled on October 15, 2022, at 6:45 PM live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Tropang will make an attempt to start a winning streak and continue where they left off while the Elastopainter wanted to improve their current .500 winning percentage. All of these will take place at the Big Dome as the tournament resumes this evening.
It’s like a rollercoaster ride for Rain or Shine as they split their previous four assignments. If that trend continues then the momentum for tonight’s may go to coach Yeng Guiao-led squad as they absorbed another defeat versus the mighty San Miguel Beermen last October 9 at the PhilSports Arena.
They tried to subdue the Beermen by throwing 52 three-pointers yet they only converted 30 percent of those attempts. While they were busy doing their long-distance barrage, their opponent was a monster inside the paint where they got outscored 38-62 in the PIP category.
Six from the local Elastopainters scored in double figures led by Rey Nambatac who delivered 19 points while Gian Mamuyac displayed better accuracy from downtown with his 50% sharpshooting and added 13 markers.
Meanwhile, for Talk ‘N Text, tonight might be the first appearance of Jayson Castro at this import-laden conference. The man who is also known as “the Blur” still has fresh ink after he renewed his contract with TNT for another three years.
Castro is among the catalysts in KaTropa’s run in the last 2022 PBA Philippine Cup where he made several clutch shot moments.
TNT’s last outing was against the NorthPort Batang Pier and it was a blowout victory for them. In that match, RR Pogoy exploded with 32 points and topped Cameron Oliver who added 20 points and 10 rebounds.
