Meralco closed in on finally ending years of misery in the PBA Philippine Cup after holding off Rain or Shine, 85-78, Thursday night at the Angeles University Foundation Sports and Cultural Center.

The Bolts sizzled in the third quarter to take a 23-point lead before weathering a big Elasto Painters rally in the fourth to move in a tie for fourth spot at 5-3.

Coach Norman Black’s team needs just one win in the last three elimination round matches to secure the franchise’s first quarterfinals berth in the All-Filipino tournament since 2014.
