It’s trumpeted as Reggie Johnson’s battle with June Mar Fajardo and Christian Standhardinger.

Raymond Almazan stole the thunder in the end.

Almazan endured battles with Fajardo, Standhardinger and Arwind Santos, and seized the moment in overtime as Rain or Shine outlasted San Miguel Beer, 123-119, in a gripping battle to gain the solo lead in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Ynares Sports Center here Sunday night.

Kept on the bench in the fourth quarter, Almazan scored eight of his 25 points in his return to the floor in the extra period as the E-Painters humbled the SMB super team that lost import Troy Gillenwater on a technical infraction and Fajardo and Santos on fouls.
