MANILA--Rain Or Shine snapped its skid in the PBA Philippine Cup in style, taking down Terrafirma, 83-77, on Sunday at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig through a fourth quarter comeback.

Just when things looked like the Dyip will finally get their first win of the season, the Elasto Painters came alive in the final period, going on a 21-2 run after conceding the quarter's first basket to pull away for good, 82-69.

Terrafirma ended the game on an 8-1 run to somehow keep the final margin decent enough.

Rey Nambatac led ROS, now up to 4-2, with 17 points, three rebounds, and two assists, while Adrian Wong and Gabe Norwood each added 15 points.

Juami Tiongson stepped up in the absence of Joshua Munzon, who was placed in the injured list, and made 20 points, one rebound, and seven assists, but his performance was not enough for Terrafirma to hold on as the team fell to 0-4.
