UAAP: Adamson scores local blue-chip recruit in 6-5 Aaron Fermin

Aaron Fermin missed out on back-to-back MVPs as his team failed to make the Final Four in his last two years in the NCAA Juniors. Now, the 6-foot-5 big man will be joining an Adamson University side that is locked into contention for the playoffs for the foreseeable future. “Sa Adamson na po ako,” he said. Fermin is the Soaring Falcons’ first big get from the local high school ranks as the likes of Jerrick Ahanmisi and Sean Manganti were recruits from the US. In the 18-year-old’s final season for Arellano High School, he averaged 15.6 points, 16.2 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks. He topped the MVP leaderboard, but did not win the award because they did not advance to the Final Four. That was also the same story in 2017 as he was, head and shoulders, the top individual player in the tournament, showcasing both the physical and mental tools to make an impact on either end. Because the Braves did not make the playoffs, however, he also did not take home the trophy. Now, Fermin will be getting together with sniper Ahanmisi, versatile Simon Camacho, heady Jerom Lastimosa, and steady Koko Pingoy for an Adamson side coming off its best finish in the Franz Pumaren era. Alongside all that young talent, the Nueva Ecija native said learning under coach Franz was the clincher for his commitment to the blue and white. “Siyempre po, pinili ko rito kasi marami akong matututunan kay coach Franz,” he said. Securing the services of Fermin is a big-time beginning to the fresh two-year contract extension Pumaren had just signed last Friday. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Harden scores 48 points, Rockets beat Lakers 138-134 in OT

By KRISTIE RIEKEN,  AP Sports Writer HOUSTON (AP) — James Harden scored 48 points, Eric Gordon added 30 and the Houston Rockets overcame a 21-point deficit to beat the Los Angeles Lakers 138-134 in overtime Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time). The Rockets trailed for most of the night and were down by 18 in the second-half. Gordon sent it to overtime with a 3-pointer, and made four free throws in the last seconds of the extra period. Coming off 57- and 58-point games, Harden had his 19th straight game with at least 30 and he's had 40 in 10 of the last 13. He was 14 of 30 from the field, going 8 of 19 3-pointers, and hit 12 of 15 free throws. Brandon Ingram missed a 3 for Los Angeles before Harden hit 1 of 2 free throws to make it 132-130 with less than a minute left. Ingram tied it with a basket, and Harden again made 1 of 2 free throws to make it 133-132. Los Angeles missed a 3 before Gordon also made just 1 of 2 free throws to leave Houston up by two with 12.6 seconds left. Kyle Kuzma lost the ball and it went out of bounds to give Houston the ball back. Gordon added four free throws after that to secure the victory. It was the second straight overtime game for both teams after Houston lost to Brooklyn on Wednesday night and Los Angeles beat Oklahoma City on Thursday night. Kuzma had 32 points for Los Angeles and Ingram added 21 in a game where coach Luke Walton was ejected in the third quarter. Already without LeBron James and Rajon Rondo, the Lakers have another injury concern after Lonzo Ball sprained his left ankle in the third quarter. The team said he was taken to a hospital for X-rays because the machine at the arena was broken. Four straight points by the Lakers stretched the lead to nine in the fourth quarter, but Harden and Gordon made consecutive 3-pointers cut it to 112-109 with about two minutes remaining. Los Angeles made four free throws to make it 116-109 about a minute later, but Harden made two 3-pointers around a basket by Ivica Zubac to get Houston within three with about 30 seconds left. Lance Stephenson missed a 3-pointer and Harden made two free throws to cut the lead to 118-117 with 5.7 seconds left. Zubac made two more free throws before Gordon's off-balance 3-pointer with 2 seconds left sent it to OT. The Lakers built a huge lead early and were up 64-46 at halftime, with Kuzma scoring 24 points. They were ahead by 17 with about eight minutes left in the third quarter after scoring five straight points capped by a basket from Kuzma before Houston scored the next 15 points to cut it to 74-72 three minutes later. James Ennis had five points in that stretch and P.J. Tucker capped it with a 3-pointer. Ball was injured just before Houston's run began. He remained on the court for a couple of minutes talking with trainer's before he was helped to his feet where he hopped on his right foot for a few steps before being carried off the court and to the locker room by Stephenson and Michael Beasley. Walton was ejected a couple of minutes after that when he got two technical fouls after yelling at officials during a timeout. TIP-INS Lakers: James was out for the 13th straight game with a strained left groin and did not make the trip. ... Stephenson finished with 16 points. Rockets: Harden also had eight rebounds, six assists and four steals. ... Ennis returned after missing Wednesday's game after cutting his left leg in a fall at his house. ... Chris Paul missed his 14th game in a row with a strained left hamstring ... Clint Capela had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb and is expected to be out 4-6 weeks.

Alab Pilipinas re-ignites in ABL after repulsing Macau

Once more in the continuation of their title defense in the 2018-2019 Asean Basketball League, Alab Pilipinas came off a loss, came through in the next game, and came away with a big-time triumph over another contender. Renaldo Balkman’s game-long brilliance coupled with total team effort in the endgame proved to be the difference on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre as the Filipinos turned down the lights on visiting Macau, 106-99. The two teams were going at it for majority of the matchup until Balkman, PJ Ramos, and Pao Javelona got together for a 10-1 run bridging the third and fourth quarters that built up an 82-73 edge for the home team. Of course, the Black Bears would only battle back and pulled within two points inside the last six minutes only to see Balkman and Ramos connive yet again, this time alongside Ray Parks Jr., Ethan Alvano, and Caelan Tiongson in a 16-3 answer that re-increased the Alab lead to 106-91. Both the lead and the momentum would remain with them until the final buzzer. In the end, Balkman 37 points, nine rebounds, four steals, and three assists while fellow Puerto Rican reinforcement Ramos contributed his own 21-marker, 14-board double-double. Parks Jr. also did damage with 13 points and 10 assists while point guards Javelona and Alvano merged for 16 markers, 14 dimes, and eight rebounds. This strong showing was nothing but a welcome development as, just five days ago, the Filipinos fell for the second time in the last four games. With the bounce back win, though, the defending champions remained alone atop the leaderboard now at 7-2. On the other hand, Macau dropped to 6-5 in the standings despite the best efforts of Anthony Tucker who had 22 points, 10 assists, and six rebounds to his name.

Serge Ibaka put Toronto up 109-107 on a hook shot with 47 seconds left, but Mikal Bridges tied it with a pair of free throws with 13 seconds remaining. Toronto gave the ball to Siakam, whose driving shot bounced off the backboard and fell through the rim as time ran out. The basket was confirmed following a video review.
