Wednesday, 15th of October, undefeated Rain or Shine Elasto Painters will collide with the San Miguel Beermen. After two impressive wins by Rain or Shine, the team has certainly earned respect and attention of the media, fans, and the PBA community.
Gabe Norwood and Solomon Mercado have proven their worth in the PBA after leading their team to consecutive wins against Red Bull and Air21 Express. San Miguel meanwhile has bounced back from a sour loss to Sta. Lucia beating Purefoods in their second outing. SMB, despite giving up 3rd pick Jason Castro to TnT seems to found a gem in 8th pick, Bonbon Custodio. The 6 foot guard from the University of the East showed brilliance in the team's first two games.
Norwood-Seigle match-up is certainly something to look forward to. Norwood maybe too skinny for Danny Seigle but he can certainly sky with Seigle. Solomon Mercado's offense will also be put to test against the pesky guards of Beermen like Dondon Hontiveros.
Catch the game live at the Araneta Coliseum or watch on you TV sets via Solar Sports on CS9.
