    PAUL Lee believes the week-long break dulled Rain or Shine’s sharpness in Game One of the PLDT myDSL-PBA Philippine Cup Finals against San Mig on Friday night.

    The hero of the Elasto Painters’ 83-80 victory said the team is obviously out-of-sync yet, having clinched a berth in the best-of-seven title series as early as Friday of last week when they ousted Petron in the semifinals.

    In contrast, the Mixers played their last game just Wednesday when they eliminated top seed Barangay Ginebra in their do-or-die encounter, 110-87.

    “Siguro `yung paghihintay namin ng matagal (for the Finals). Siyempre, kami-kami lang ang nagpa-practice. Eh, hindi nakatulong yun,” said Lee, who turned 25 on Valentines Day. “Ang San Mig galing sa laro so ang timing nila sa laro nandun eh. Kami first official game namin ngayon after one week.”

    Lee expects the Elasto Painters to regain their top form as the series progresses, although he stressed the need to get sharp on the defensive end against a well-coached and disciplined team like the Mixers.

    “Hindi puwede 'yung ganitong laro (slow-paced game) kasi nakita niyo kung gaano ka dangerous sila (Mixers). Kumurap ka eh kukunin talaga nila ang laro,” added Lee, who finished the game with just six points on 2-of-8 shooting, along with three rebounds, two assists and two steals.
