MANILA—Rain Or Shine rode on a barrage of three-pointers to finally end Magnolia's dominant run dating back to the PBA On Tour.

It was fitting that a three decided the contest as Santi Santillan hit the go-ahead basket from long distance for the Elasto Painters to eventually pull off a 113-110 win against the Hotshots on Saturday night at the Aquilino Pimentel International Convention Center in Cagayan De Oro.

Santillan hit a right corner three off a kickout pass from Tree Treadwell to give ROS a 110-108 lead with 1:25 left.

However, the Elasto Painters could not close out the Hotshots as Treadwell and Andrei Caracut could only make splits from the line, giving the Purefoods franchise 10 seconds to try to force overtime.

Despite the ample time, Magnolia failed to launch a single three-point attempt in time, and ROS escaped.

Treadwell finished with 30 points on 10-of-14 field goals and 10-of-13 free throws, 16 rebounds, and nine assists for the Elasto Painters, who now won three straight games to move up to 3-5.

Caracut added 15 points, one rebound, and six assists, while Keith Datu went 5-for-5 from the field including 4-of-4 from deep for 14 points alongside six rebounds, two assists, and one block.

Overall, ROS went 16-for-33 from 22 feet out and beyond. 

Tyler Bey made 30 points, 11 rebounds, two blocks, and four steals for the Hotshots, who lost for the first time after 18 straight victories since the PBA On Tour series and are now 7-1 in the Commissioner's Cup.

Paul Lee added 22 points, three rebounds, and four assists, and Mark Barroca put up 20 points, three rebounds, seven assists, and one steal.
