Bolts vs Elastopainters
It wasn't a completely bad day for the Meralco Bolts, after all. Hours after losing a key player in Jared Dillinger, the Bolts were all business, edging Rain or Shine 91-84 in the PBA Commissioner's Cup on Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The Bolts relegated injured Dillinger to the unrestricted free agent list with a verbal agreement that he wouldn't sign with any team. But without consulting any of the Meralco officials, Dillinger signed with Ginebra last 31 May.
