    RAIN or Shine is back on the winning track, thanks to an unflappable offense powered by huge baskets by Jeff Chan.

    The Painters overcame a 17-point deficit to beat the Phoenix Fuel Masters to end a two-game slide in the Commissioner’s CUp, and for that Chan has been named Accel PBA Player of the Week by the PBA Press Corps.

    Chan willed Rain or Shine back to life with baskets from inside and outside, the last a three-point play off Mark Borboran with 7.7 seconds to go to push the Elasto Painters ahead for good.

    The left-handed sniper from Bacolod finished with 24 points, 12 in the final six minutes.

    The 34-year-old Chan was named top player for the period April 10 to 16, getting picked for the weekly citation over San Miguel Beer’s Chris Ross, Meralco big man Kelly Nabong and wingman Jared Dillinger and GlobalPort Fil-American guard Stanley Pringle.

    Rain or Shine took a long break during the Holy Week and will return to action against unbeaten San Miguel Beer (3-0) on Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena.
