Box Scores. 

The Rain or Shine Elasto Painters shrugged off a couple of bad breaks as they notched a tough victory over the Mahindra Enforcers, 103-98, for a third consecutive win in the 2016 Oppo PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Wednesday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

Despite a first half ejection for Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao and a black eye to deadshot Jeff Chan, the Elasto Painters did enough to get the job done late as they improved to 4-3 for the conference, moving into a tie for fourth place in the team standings.
