The Rain or Shine Elastopainters vanquished the Powerade Tigers with the final tally of 110-95 to tie the PBA Season 37 best-of-7 Philippine Cup semifinal series to 2-2.
The man of the match Paul Lee, who was dubbed as the young leader of the conference, listed 15 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists on his score sheet to make up for his unfavorable performance in the game 3 of the series.
Powerade showered their 3-point charities during the 1st half but Rain or Shine managed to maintain the lead to end the 1st half, 53-45.
Jeff Chan was able to show his spirit back on the game court as he sank 10 points in the 3rd quarter that widen the gap with the Tigers into a double-digit figure, 79-61.
However, the Tigers did not lose their spirit and still finding their right rhythm to equal the score with the E-painters. But the E-painters locked their doors as Chan continued to produce charities that ended the winning streak of the Tigers.
Although the Tigers lost the match, Gary David made his 6th 30-point game which could honor him the title "Best Player of the Conference".
The tied series will break on Friday for the game 5 of the series.
