TOP seed Rain or Shine is all set to exact vengeance against Talk ‘N Text in the best-of-seven championship series of the 40th Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Commissioner’s Cup starting on Wednesday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
The Elasto Painters are aiming to avenge their 0-4 shutout loss to the Tropang Texters during the 2012-2013 Philippine Cup Finals.
The victory then by Talk ‘N Text was their third consecutive All-Filipino crown.
Talk ‘N Text claimed its 16th Finals stint by sweeping Purefoods Star Hotshots, 79-66, in Game Four last Saturday to close the best-of-five semifinal series, 3-1.
The Elasto Painters, on the other hand, swept Meralco Bolts, 3-0, to return to the Finals.
“It’s like that I’ve been out for so long. It’s always a good feeling to be back in the Finals,” said Tropang Texters coach Jong Uichico.
