With an overall healthier team ready for the Commissioner's Cup, defending champion Rain or Shine look to keep a good start to its title defense as the mid-season conference continues Sunday at the Big Dome.

Fresh from a hard-fought win over NLEX two days ago, the Elasto Painters take the court first at 4:30 p.m. from the Araneta Coliseum, taking on a Mahindra team looking to get on the board after an opening defeat.

With James Yap turning back the clock a couple of years, Rain or Shine started its title-retention bid on a high note by taking down NLEX that featured former import Wayne Chism, now the Elasto Painters shoot for an early lead just like in the Philippine Cup but with plans of sustaining it this time around.

The champs would have to go through James White and the Floodbuster first though.

In the second game at 7:00 p.m., Meralco also go for a share of an early lead as the Bolts face the Road Warriors.

With their hulking import Alex Stephenson still getting used to the PBA game, Meralco drew big games from their locals againnst Mahindra last Friday and will hope to do it again if Stephenson continues to work his way offensively.

Such is not a problem for NLEX as Chism is pretty much ready to go as a returning reinforcement, The problem with Yeng Guiao's crew is figuring out how to win after not doing a lot of it dating back to the All-Filipino.
