MANILA, Philippines – Two teams with contrasting streaks will meet Sunday afternoon as the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters face off against the GlobalPort Batang Pier in the PBA Philippine Cup at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Rain or Shine (7-3) will target their fourth consecutive victory against the slumping Batang Pier, who have lost three consecutive games in what is the longest active losing streak in the league.
Rain or Shine is coming off a sensational 101-77 victory over San Mig Coffee in their last game of 2013, and the Elasto Painters are hoping to get off to a fine start in 2014 as well.
A win against GlobalPort will allow Rain or Shine to seize solo third and keep in step with league leadings Ginebra and Petron.
Meanwhile, the Batang Pier are hoping to recover after being routed by Barako Bull, 108-95, in their last game of 2013.
Game time is at 3 p.m.
