Yeng Guiao Prepares Rain or Shine for Intense Quarterfinal Challenge


After clinching the seventh seed in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup eliminations with an impressive six-game winning streak, Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao is now focused on fine-tuning his Elasto Painters for the upcoming quarterfinal challenge. Guiao emphasizes the need for improvement in both offensive and defensive execution as they gear up to face either Phoenix or San Miguel Beer. The Elasto Painters lost a close game to San Miguel earlier in the eliminations, but with their replacement import Tree Treadwell finding his rhythm, Rain or Shine is poised for a competitive quarterfinal series.

Guiao praises Treadwell for his well-rounded contributions, highlighting his ability to involve local players, a crucial aspect heading into the playoffs. In their recent victory against the FiberXers, Treadwell showcased his versatility with 21 points, 17 rebounds, and eight assists.

The coach strategically used the game against FiberXers to strike a balance between securing a win and boosting players’ confidence. Veterans like James Yap and Beau Belga made significant contributions, showcasing the team’s depth.

As Rain or Shine braces for the quarterfinals, Guiao acknowledges the importance of experiencing close games and endgame pressure. The recent nail-biting victory against Converge served as a valuable lesson, preparing the team for the intensity of playoff scenarios.

As Rain or Shine heads into the quarterfinals, Yeng Guiao’s strategic approach and focus on improvement position the Elasto Painters as formidable contenders. The team’s resilience, combined with the valuable lessons from close encounters, sets the stage for an intense and competitive playoff campaign.
