PBA: Belga stupefied by ROS' Columbian woes
Since the 2018 PBA season, Columbian has scored four straight wins against the Elasto Painters, including a season sweep last year and another big win in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Wednesday.

For the longest time, Rain or Shine was the only team the Columbian/Kia franchise couldn't beat in the PBA.

Well that's not the case anymore.

Since the 2018 PBA season, Columbian has scored four straight wins against the Elasto Painters, including a season sweep last year and another big win in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Wednesday.

That's four straight wins after enduring nine straight defeats since they made the league as an expansion team in the 2014-2015 season.

Rain or Shine is naturally dumbfounded.

"Doon ako nafu-frustrate. Para kaming hindi nadala eh, di ba? Hindi ko na alam kung anong gagawin eh," forward Beau Belga said about his team's 0-4 mark to Columbian since last season.

"It’s frustrating. Pag nakita mo yung dugout scene kanina parang lahat galit. So wala eh," he added.

But more than their struggles against Columbian, another thing ROS has to worry about is its quest to take a top-2 spot in the All-Filipino.

After five-straight wins to take over first place with a 7-1 mark, the Elasto Painters have dropped back-to-back games.

The team's 7-3 mark is still good for second place but its now vulnerable.

"What’s our problem is medyo tagilid kami in contention doon sa top two spot. Kasi kung nanalo ngayon, medyo okay okay na eh. Sabi ko nga eh, we have an easier job dahil na-survive natin yung malalakas. And the last remaining three is medyo ano natin, nasa kamay natin di ba," Belga said.

"The good thing, nakapondo tayo ng pitong panalo so medyo yung paa natin is nasa playoffs na. And mas maganda na papasok tayo ng playoffs na galing sa panalo, hindi galing sa talo," he added.
