ROS basically had three chances to advance in the quarterfinals and they got it on their second attempt, beating three-time defending champion San Miguel Beer Wednesday at the MOA Arena.

Rain or Shine knows what it feels like to go through a playoff for the no. 8 seed.

They did it last year in the Philippine Cup and they barely made it through. They got smashed by the Beermen in the first round.

That's why in this year's edition of the All-Filipino, the Elasto Painters made sure to get through on their own terms.

ROS basically had three chances to advance in the quarterfinals and they got it on their second attempt, beating three-time defending champion San Miguel Beer Wednesday at the MOA Arena.

It was imperative for the Elasto Painters to win considering they had the toughest schedule left and it would have been disastrous if they lose out.

"We just really need to win," Beau Belga said.

"Ayoko lang umabot pa ng playoffs sa number 8 tapos San Miguel din makakalaban mo sa do-or-die. Mahirap, mahira," he added.

Belga certainly did his part against the Beermen, leading the team in scoring with 19 points.

Now the attention shifts to Ginebra on Friday as ROS loos to gain momentum heading into the playoffs.

"As of now nabunutan ng isang tinik, let's see on Friday kung yung dalawang tinik na yun matatanggal talaga," Belga said.
