Rain or Shine walloped Air21, 106-92, Wednesday night to remin unbeaten in the PBA Governors’ Cup at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
The Elasto Painters rode the torrid outside shooting of Jeff Chan, who was named Player of the Game after hitting 5-of-9 triples on his way to 16 points.
Three other Painters scored in double figures with import Jamelle Cornley registering 21 points and 14 rebounds, Gabe Norwood with 13, and Ronjay Buenafe adding 11 points.
They improved to 3-0 to stay atop the standings, while the Express dropped to 1-2.
Express import Zachary Graham played all but one minute of the game and produced a game-high 37 points, 20 rebounds, and three assists. Paolo Hubalde was the only other Air21 player in twin digits with 10 points.
Clinging to a 23-22 lead at the end of the first quarter, the Painters extended the lead to seven, 53-46, at halftime and never looked back.
