MANILA, Philippines –
Jai Lewis remained unbeaten in his Rain or Shine stint as the Elasto
Painters grounded the Purefoods Giants, 110-90, in a Motolite-PBA
Fiesta Cup road game Saturday at the Victorias Sports & Amusement
Center Victorias City, Negros Occidental.

Lewis had another monster game of 26 points and 20 rebounds to power
the Elasto Painters to their third straight win and 4-1 overall for
second place in the standings.

Despite parading a new import in Jahmar Thorpe, the Giants failed to
stop the bleeding as they tumbled to their third straight loss in five

“We dictated the tempo of the game early. We kept on running since they
have a new import," said Rain or Shine coach Caloy Garcia.

Gabe Norwood, Lewis’ teammate at George Mason University, led the Rain
or Shine locals with 16 points. Rob Wainwright added 13 while Sol
Mercado had 12, including a lay up early in the first period when the
Elasto Painters went on a big 17-0 tear to take a 22-6 lead.

Norwood’s jumper gave Rain or Shine its biggest lead, at 78-58.

The Giants tried to make a fight out of it, initiating a 14-3 run on
Peter June Simon’s six straight points to close in at 72-81 entering
the final quarter.

But that was the closest Purefoods could get as Norwood and Mercado
took over and pushed the Elasto Painters’ lead back to 99-78 in the
final 5:21.

Simon led the Giants with 23 markers while Thorpe debuted for 21, 12 of
which came in the fourth quarter when the final score the only thing
left to be settled. – GMANews.TV
