Meralco vs Rain or Shine [January 20 | 4:15pm | Cuneta Astrodome]

HIS team is on a dizzying downward spiral and Meralco coach Norman Black is being stretched to the limits of his wits trying to come up with a solution.

“We just have to keep on working, that’s all we can do at this point,” Black has said after his team
absorbed a fifth straight loss.

That tailspin has since been stretched to a league-worst six and Black and his Bolts must now do a lot of scrambling in order to keep alive their hopes of making it to the playoffs.

But standing huge in the way of Meralco is Rain or Shine, which is looking at a far loftier goal when they collide Friday in the PBA Philippine Cup at the Cuneta Astrodome.

The Elasto Painters are aiming to bounce back from a sorry loss their last time out while stoking their drive at keeping their second-running position and thus gain a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals following the 11-game eliminations. –
