PBA: Beating champion Ginebra lit a fire in ROS
"They're the champs, it was huge for our confidence you know," ROS import Terrence Watson said Wednesday after his team demolished Northport to post back-to-back wins.

Beating two-time defending champion Brgy. Ginebra may have sparked something in Rain or Shine.

Prior to stopping the Gin Kings in Lucena last week, ROS was a woeful 0-4 and headed to nowhere.

Now, the Elasto Painters have recovered for a 2-4 mark and they look like they're gaining some serious momentum towards making a late chase for a playoff spot in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup.

That big win over the Gin Kings lit a fire for sure.

"They're the champs, it was huge for our confidence you know," ROS import Terrence Watson said Wednesday after his team demolished Northport to post back-to-back wins.

"If we're gonna go forward, we need a confidence-building game like that. That was the champs, back-to-back champs, so I think that [win] kinda gave guys hope that we can actually do it," he added.

The Elasto Painters are certainly in position to make a late run for the playoffs, especially with their upcoming games.

The combined record of ROS' next two opponents is 2-15, giving the team more than a fighting chance to bounce back.

However, it all starts with the continued strong play from the Elasto Painters. In the win against the Batang Pier, four players scored at least 20 points, including Watson.

"It feels like a revelation to finally get some wins," Watson said.

"Winning against Ginebra and coming here and playing against Northport, we know how important the win was for them too, it was huge today for us to get the win and have another couple of games to get back into the playoff hunt," he added.
