The Rain or Shine Elasto Painters avoided getting swept as they lived for another day against the San Miguel Beermen, 112-104.
Gabe Norwood and Beau Belga teamed-up in the last thirty seconds of the fourth quarter.
Norwood made sure that there’s no more momentum swing as he stopped Chris Mccullough by blocking his shot.
Mccullough was called traveling in that sequence as the ball didn’t leave his hand as he landed on the floor.
Then on the other end, Belga challenged June Mar Fajardo as he hits the dagger three-pointer to shut the door for the Beermen.
Yet, the biggest star for Rain or Shine was Rey Nambatac who once again stepped up in the crucial moments of the game.
He was later named as the Bida Player of the Game where he notched 22 points along with his three assists.
ROS also spoiled the scoring explosion of San Miguel’s import who manufactured his career-high in the PBA with 51 points to go with his 14 rebounds.
Chris Ross who made his career-high in Game 2 got well-defended in tonight’s ball-game as he only limited to six points.
Both teams will return to action for Game 4 of their best-of-five series on Friday.
