PBA Results, Standings: December 7, 2012

In PBA Friday action, the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters capped their elimination round campaign with an explosive 116-101 victory over Barako Bull. The loss took the Energy Colas out of contention for the final Philippine Cup quarterfinals spot.

This was despite Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao missing most of the action after being caught in traffic traveling from Pampanga.

In the nightcap, the San Mig Coffee Mixers clinched the second spot with a 107-96 victory over the GlobalPort Batang Pier. With the win, San Mig Coffee assured itself a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals over Petron.

It would also allow Mixers coach Tim Cone to rest James Yap, who is suffering from a bone spur in his right ankle, for their final assignment against Meralco on Sunday.
