PBA Governor's Cup 2023


Rain or Shine Elasto Painters vs Magnolia Hotshots 

At 5:45 p.m., the Hotshots and Elasto Painters square off in an effort for the Hotshots to win their fourth straight game and move up to sixth place in the standings with a record of 4-3. Following a comeback with their import replacements, both are chasing down the early tournament leaders. The Hotshots have made a significant comeback from starting 0-3, going 3-0 with Antonio Hester. The Elasto Painters also took inspiration from recent import Greg Smith; they triumphed in their most recent match, which they won despite having an all-Filipino crew. Smith will return for this intriguing match with Hester and the Hotshots after receiving approval from his former club in the Dominican Republic. 

The Elasto Painters' thrilling 120–118 victory over Terrafirma Dyip without Smith has undoubtedly given them a huge morale boost. The Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao said, "The guys stepped up. Alam namin dehado kami so this was really a good experience in terms of developing them mentally and making them learn to cope with adverse situations. Chito Victolero, the coach at Magnolia, prepares for conflict. We must grind it out on both ends of the floor because it will be a physically demanding game, according to Victolero. We're playing well and pareho kaming naghahabol sa standings so we have to prepare hard for this game, said Victolero. "They (ROS) have a very good import. Actually, nanalo nga yan nang walang import, may import pa kaya? 

Victolero and his team are eager to get started in the hopes of placing in the Top 4 at the conclusion of the single-round robin eliminations. The immediate objective is to overtake Meralco (3-3) and Barangay Ginebra and move ahead of them in the standings (4-2). The E-Painters, on the other hand, are just inside the Top 8, half a game in front of the Terrafirma Dyip and Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters (2-5) (2-5). With the assistance of Smith, who replaced Michael Qualls as coach, the Elasto Painters defeated the Blackwater Bossing by a score of 122-117 before defeating the Dyip by a score of 120-118 thanks to Santi Santillan's valiant efforts.
