F2 Logistics captures breakthrough Grand Prix title

F2 Logistics captured its breakthrough 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix title but not after surviving a tough battle against Petron, 25-20, 25-19, 20-25, 25-18, in the decider of their best-of-three Finals series at MOA Arena on Saturday.    Conference Most Valuable Player Maria Jose Perez led the Cargo Movers' assault as the Venezuelan import unleashed all of her 24 points off attacks to pulverize the defense of the Blaze Spikers but it was skipper Cha Cruz who hurt Petron the most. Cruz, who was instumental in F2 Logistics impressive comeback in Game 2, scored 16 points from 13 spikes and three aces while spoiling the attacks of the Blaze Spikers with great floor defense, tallying 12 excellent receptions and eight digs. American Kennedy Bryan and reigning UAAP MVP MAjoy Baron finished with 12 points each.       The Cargo Movers pounced on the cold Blaze Spikers early before staving off Petron’s comeback attempt with a strong fourth set blitz to bag their first import-laden crown since joining the league last year. The Ramil de Jesus-mentored squad returned the favor against the same team that kicked then off the throne in the All-Filipino Conference four months ago and completed an amazing comeback from a 0-1 series deficit. "Masaya kasi 'yun na lang 'di ko na-achieve," said a very jubilant De Jesus, a many-time UAAP champion and 2016 PSL All-Filipino Conference titlist. De Jesus stuck to the same rotation that saved them in Game 2, putting Bryan at opposite and switching Cruz's position to open. Petron was slow to adjust. "'Yung rotation  na 'yun di nila na-solusyunan, very effective naman," he said. "Nu'ng thirrd set balik lang sa normal possession, nag-relax lang mga bata pero di ko binago 'yung rotation." The Blaze Spikers avoided a sweep after taking the third set but again saw themselves trailing 11-16 in the fourth frame. Petron never recovered from their deficit as Perez sealed the win with a kill straight to the backrow that went off the hands of American import Hillary Hurley.   F2 Logistics won its second league title after ruling the the 2016 All-Filipino Conference  and became the first team to climb out of an early series deficit and take the throne since the implementation of the best-of-three championship back in 2015. The Cargo Movers forced a decider after a morale-boosting 25-20, 24-26, 14-25, 25-19, 15-4, victory in Game 2 last Thursday. Petron drew first blood, 25-14, 25-21, 25-16, Tuesday but was denied of adding another Grand Prix crown after winning it all back in 2015. Hurley scored 25 points while compatriot Stalzer was limited to only nine markers for Petron.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Clint Capela added 13 points and seven rebounds before fouling out with five minutes left, and Eric Gordon, who started in place of James Ennis, had 14 points for the Rockets, who shot 49 percent from the field.

Damian Lillard had 34 points, CJ McCollum scored 22 points and Jusuf Nurkic added 15 points and 10 rebounds for Portland, which shot 44 percent after starting the game by making seven of its first nine shots.

Turner helps Pacers escape with 109-101 victory over Wizards

By Michael Marot, Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Myles Turner had a season-high 26 points, 12 rebounds and five blocks and Bojan Bogdanovic added 22 points Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) to help the Indiana Pacers stave off Washington's frenetic second-half charge for a 109-101 victory. Indiana extended its winning to streak to four straight, a season-best, after nearly blowing a 25-point, third-quarter lead. Bradley Beal scored 30 points and Kelly Oubre Jr. had a season-high 23 points for the Wizards, who played without injured All-Star guard John Wall. Beal certainly tried to make up for Wall's absence with the Wizards facing an 87-62 deficit with 4:04 to go in the third. He scored five of the first nine points in a 13-0 run to close the quarter. The Wizards then opened the fourth on a 9-2 run to make it 87-81 with 9:54 to play. They eventually cut the deficit to 98-97 when Beal made two free throws to cap an 8-0 spurt, and Washington even had a chance to take the lead when Oubre drove in for a layup. But Turner redirected the shot, Darren Collison knocked down a triple from the wing and the Pacers steadied themselves just in time to hold on for the victory. Collison finished with 10 points and 17 assists — his highest assist total with the Pacers. TIP-INS Wizards: Beal scored 19 points in the second half and reached the 20-point mark for the 20th time this season. ... Otto Porter Jr. left midway through the first quarter with a bruised knee and did not return. ... Thomas Bryant, who attended Indiana University, had 10 points. ... Washington came into the game averaging 13.9 turnovers, but had eight in the first half and wound up with 12. ... Austin Rivers had 13 points in place of Wall. Pacers: Turner has had double-doubles in four of the last six games. ... Bogdanovic reached double figures in his 18th straight game, the longest streak of his NBA career. He's also topped the 20-point mark in eight of the last 14 games. ... Turner's five blocks all came in the first half, with three on successive Washington possessions. ... Collison had 31 assists without a turnover before committing three late in the game. ... All-Star guard Victor Oladipo missed his 12th straight game with a sore right knee. UP NEXT Wizards: After a four-game road trip, Washington heads home to face Boston on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time).

Marcus Morris leads depleted Celtics past Pelicans 113-100

By Jimmy Golen, Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — Marcus Morris Sr. had a season-high 31 points, making three quick three-pointers to start the second half, and Jayson Tatum scored 21 on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) to lead a depleted Boston lineup to its sixth straight win, a 113-100 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Celtics scored nine straight points in the last four minutes of the first quarter to take a lead they would never relinquish. They led 59-53 at the half before Morris hit three triples — one from the left corner, one from the right wing and one from the top of the key — to make it 68-55. New Orleans never got closer than nine points after that. TIP-INS Pelicans: Davis had been questionable with a right hip contusion, but he played 38 minutes. ... Lost 124-107 in the only other meeting this season, on Nov. 26 (Nov. 27, PHL time), and have now lost seven of their last 10 against Boston. ... Have alternated wins and losses over their last eight games. ... Fell to 4-11 on the road. Celtics: Were coming off the most lopsided victory in franchise history, a 56-point win over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). ... Missed eight of their first nine three-point attempts. After Morris hit three triples to start the second half, they missed 11 in a row. ROOKIE NIGHT Williams had appeared in just nine box scores this season, never playing more than 8 minutes, 37 seconds. His previous highs were four points and three rebounds; he also matched his best with three blocked shots. Brad Wanamaker, who spent six seasons in Europe and one in the developmental league, matched his career high with four points. He had played in only eight games before Monday and topped his career highs with 18 minutes (old high 9:06), three rebounds (1), and matched his best of four assists. OUT Horford was nursing a sore left knee, Irving had a sore right shoulder, Hayward was ill and Baynes was out with a sprained ankle.
