The PBA fans are in for a history as Rain or Shine Elasto-Painters battles the Alaska in a half an hour in Smart-Araneta Coliseum Araneta Center Cubao, Quezon City after the awarding ceremony for the Best Player of the Conference with Alaska guard Calvin Abueva as likely to win and the Best Import accolade. Rain or Shine has beaten the Alaska thrice in an average of score more than a 100+ points. Alaska head coach Alex Compton gave his “kids” a point to ponder as he believes that they’re self destructing during crunch time obviously seen in game 3 where RoS guard Paul Lee picked-up a bounce ball without someone defending him and score a basket under the last 2 seconds of the final regulation. Yeng Guiao Ros coach downplays their chance of sweeping the series as he mentioned to the media during the post game press conference that the series is seeing the toughest battle citing that same under 2 seconds basket by the RoS guard.
The question lies in the air is very clear, will Rain or Shine make history tonight and write their name in the PBA History as one of the sweepers of a championship series or will they let their chance and extend the series another one game. It will be an interesting how will Alaska react to extend the series as they were in the same page in the last conference wherein they are up 3-0 against the San Miguel Beermen until they lost the remaining 4 games and ended up runner-up in that unforgettable conference which they have named as “beeracle” this time is different Alaska is under extreme pressure to notch a win and save their pride to be swept by a team whose style of play involves every member of the team by sharing quality minutes and using their swarm of guards in breaking the Alaska triangle offense in three games. Paul Lee leading the charge and the rest of the RoS team will try to close out tonight and write their name in history books the 2016 Oppo PBA Commissioners Cup championship and eventually join the Northern Cement Corp., Swift Mighty Meaty, Purefoods and the San Miguel Beer .
