The Rain or Shine Elasto Painters is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Columbian Dyip at 4:30 P.M. on June 23, 2019 live from the Batangas City Coliseum in Batangas.
The Dyip are looking to avoid a three-game losing skid while the Elasto Painters are looking to get back at their .500 winning percentage when the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup resume this afternoon in Batangas.
RoS blew their 25-point advantage against the NorthPort Batang Pier in their last outing.
Coach Pido Jarencio squad fielded only eight players now famously known as the “Magnificent 8” as they made a surging comeback and completed the victory in overtime.
Rain or Shine’s head coach Caloy Garcia felt the need of urgency and wanted his squad to quickly recover from their disastrous defeat.
“After a tough loss we just have to bounce back from it,” said E-Painers coach Caloy Garcia.
The veteran coach wanted to keep the confidence of his group and remain focused.
“We just have to remain confident of ourselves and play harder than Columbian,” Garcia added. “We just have to want it more.”
Columbian on the other hand have displayed a good performance against one of the league-leaders, the TNT KaTropa in their last outing.
They were ahead eight points in three instance but only to fumble in the final quarter.
Columbian head coach Johnedel Cardel might have stressed to his players that this time around they need to play consistent basketball in the entire 48 minutes and must learn how to close it out.
