Barako braces for rebounding Rain or Shine
MANILA, Philippines – Barako Bull is expecting a difficult game from Rain or Shine, which is coming off a 72-86 loss to Meralco last Friday.
Barako Bull consultant Rajko Toroman believes the Elasto Painters is a more dangerous team, especially after a defeat.
“It will be a difficult game for us. Rain or Shine is coming off a loss and they are fresh,” Toroman said in the league website. “They are a great team with lots of individual quality.”
However, a win by Energy would be crucial as it would assure them a slot in the next round of the PBA Governors’ Cup.
Barako Bull (4-2) is tied with Meralco at second place after pulling off a miracle against GlobalPort last Sunday, 98-97.
But Toroman said they will need more than a miracle in beating Rain or Shine. “We will try to play better than [what we did] against GlobalPort,” he said.
The Barako Bull-Rain or Shine game begins at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
