Reggie Johnson got ample help in the most opportune of times and Rain or Shine was all the better off because of it.

Chris Tu and Ed Daquioag lent big helping hands to Johnson as the Elasto Painters outlasted the Meralco Bolts 106-99 in overtime Sunday to assure themselves of the No. 1 spot in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup playoffs at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The wide-bodied import scored five of his 21 points in the extension and also had a crucial steal while adding game-highs of 18 rebounds and three blocks that helped Rain or Shine come out ahead in a closely-fought game and notch its sixth straight win.

It was not Johnson alone as his local teammates helped out on defense before Tiu and Daquioag produced two free throws and a dagger of a triple, respectively, inside the last 89 seconds of extension to ensure the E-Painters’ ninth win in 10 games.
