Rain or Shine finally makes Governors Cup debut vs TNT in Passi

RAIN or Shine finally makes its PBA Governors’ Cup debut when it clashes with TNT on Saturday in Passi City, Iloilo.

The Petron Saturday Special match is slated at 5 p.m.

The Elastopainters have not played since July 23 in Game Four of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup semifinals against Barangay Ginebra after the core of the team represented the Philippines in the 2018 Asian Games.

Rain or Shine coach Caloy Garcia was also part of Team Pilipinas as assistant coach to Yeng Guiao in the Asian Games as well as in the Fiba Basketball World Cup Asian qualifiers window against Iran and Qatar.

J’Nathan Bullock will once again reinforce the Elastopainters after he led the team to a semifinal finish in last year’s Governors’ Cup.

The KaTropa made a coaching change on Friday when they elevated Bong Ravena as the team’s head coach, replacing Nash Racela.

Also coming on board as consultant for the KaTropa is Mark Dickel, a two-time Olympian for New Zealand and former national team coach of Albania.

TNT is coming off a 118-114 win over Columbian on September 2 but the KaTropa were struggling prior to that as they are sporting a 2-4 win-loss slate.
