MANILA--Five days after the team crossed paths with Paul Lee for the first time after the blockbuster trade that sent him to Star, Rain Or Shine is in for another pre-Christmas reunion, this time against former coach Yeng Guiao.

The Elasto Painters will go up against Guiao and the NLEX Road Warriors in the main game of the PBA Philippine Cup's showcase at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig on Friday at 7 p.m.

ROS seems to have move on from Guiao's departure as the team is chasing the top of the team standings at 3-2, a full game behind San Miguel.

The E-Painters are actually among five teams in a tie for third place with two of them, the TNT KaTropa and the Alaska Aces, looking to join the Blackwater Elite in second spot in their battle at 4:15 p.m.

NLEX, on the other hand, is still groping for form under Guiao and has found itself almost at the cellar at 1-4, just above still winless Mahindra.
