MPBL All-Star MVP Viernes treats every game the same way

For most players, an All-Star game is an avenue to take a break from the competitiveness of the game and build a bond between the league’s best players. But that isn’t the case for Batangas-Tanduay’s Jeff Viernes. “Sabi ko nga, mental focus ko every time na naglalaro ako, All-Star man yan o every game, tini-treat ko siya the same. I'm a very competitive player. Ginagawa ko lang lahat, yung best ko,” Viernes revealed. And Viernes’ fierce approach to the game definitely showed when his South All-Stars squad were at the jaws of defeat against the North All-Stars in the 2019-20 Chooks-to-Go/MPBL Lakan Cup All-Star game at the Mall of Asia Arena, Thursday. Down by six points with 3:15 remaining in regulation, the pint-sized guard from Isabela pumped in 12 in the South’s last 15 points – including two crucial free throws – which sent the game to overtime. Viernes then conspired with Gab Banal and opened the extra period with a 10-0 barrage to give the South a comfortable 122-112 advantage with 3:19 ticks left. Though the quintet of Renato Ular, Michael Juico, Aris Dionisio, and Jeric Teng were able to answer with 10-0 blast for the North and the knot the scores at 122-all, the product of St. Clare sank 4-of-4 from the charity stripe in the final 25 seconds of the game to seal the victory. “Siyempre nandoon pa rin yung we're having fun kasi All-Star pa rin yun. Pero syempre may sari-sarili kaming pride pa rin. Kahit sabihin mong All-Star, gusto naming ibigay namin ang best namin at bigyan ng magandang show yung fans,” shared Viernes, who also pocketed PHP 50,000 courtesy of Sen. Manny Pacquiao for his efforts. “I think nagawa naman namin both, nag-enjoy kami at nabigyan namin yung fans ng sobrang gandang laban, very intense. Siguro wala na kaming hihilingin pa, nakuha namin yung panalo. Very fortunate lang and we're very thankful,” he added. When the dust settled, Viernes collected 28 points, six assists, and six rebounds and took home his second consecutive All-Star Game Most Valuable Player award. And for the 29-year-old spitfire guard, the team’s desire to win led to their on-court chemistry which resulted to the victory. “Yung back-to-back MVP, bonus na lang din,” said Viernes. “Nagusap usap kami sa dugout and we all want to win. I think kaya din maganda ang chemistry namin kahit second time kami magkakasama, yung una All-Star last year. Maganda. Happy kami." And South head coach Don Dulay could not agree more as he witnessed the camaraderie first hand. “One thing I noticed, we had a lot more fun on the bench. Everybody on the bench, the whole second half, we're cheering who's on the court,” Dulay said......»»

Isner outlasts Sandgren at ASB Classic; top-seed ousted

AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP) — Two-time champion John Isner beat defending champion Tennys Sandgren 7-6 (3), 6-7 (1), 6-3 Wednesday in an all-American second round match at the ASB Classic. The only previous meeting between the pair, in Stockholm in 2018, went to three tie-breaks. Fourth-seeded Isner finally bucked that trend when achieved the first service break of the match in the fifth game of the third set and went to win the set in 28 minutes. "Of course I'm happy about that," Isner said. "It's always a tough match playing Tennys. He does a lot of things really, really well on the court and when he and I match up it's inevitably going to be close and that was the case today. "I've very happy to get through and get through in somewhat comfortable fashion." Isner won the tournament in 2010 — his first ATP title — and again in 2014 for his only tournament wins outside the United States. While he has returned regularly, the last few years have not been as kind. "I've always been a pretty slow starter so I'm very happy to win this match today," he said. "I've lost my first match here the last three years I think. So I've bucked that trend in 2020 and I'm very happy about I hope I can play better tomorrow." The day didn't start well for Sandgren. Because the Auckland tournament is being held a week later than usual the points Sandgren won last year, and which he would have defended, have expired and he dropped 33 ranking spots to No. 101. But he started the match stronger than Isner. The 20th-ranked Isner was expected to dominate on serve but it was Sandgren whose serve was more formidable in the first set: he won his first two service games to love and dropped only three points on serve before the set went to a tiebreak. A medical emergency in the bleachers caused a 10 minute delay before the tiebreaker began and Sandgren appeared to lose momentum. He double faulted on the first point and couldn't recover, conceding the set. He still looked out of form at the start of the second set, going to five deuces before winning his first service game while Isner held comfortably, steadily increasing his tally of aces. The set again went to a tiebreak in which Sandgren was suddenly dominant, winning 7-1 to level the match. Isner finally won a service break in the fifth game of the second set after a pivotal rally which lasted 26 shots, the longest of the match. He broke again in the ninth game to seal the match in 2-1/4 hours. Organizers scheduled 18 matches on Wednesday, including first and second round singles, to make up for time lost the day before when only two matches were completed due to rain. The 38-year-old Spaniard Feliciano Lopez was among players who had to play two matches on the same cay and in his second he upset top-seeded Fabio Fognini of Italy 3-6, 6-4, 6-4. Lopez was on court 2-1/2 hours for a 3-6, 7-6 (4), 6-4 first round win over compatriot Pablo Andujar and returned to beat Fognini in just under two hours. "Not bad for a 38-year-old," Lopez said. "Because it rained yesterday I had to play two matches today. "The first match was tough but I honestly think it was very helpful for me in order to play against Fabio because this morning was my first match this year so far, it was 2-1/2 hours and that was very helpful for me. "Without that match I don't think I could have played the way I played against Fabio.".....»»

76ers center Joel Embiid to have surgery on finger

By Dan Gelston, Associated Press PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Joel Embiid needs more surgery, this time for a torn ligament in a finger in his left hand, the latest setback in the injury-riddled career of the Philadelphia 76ers' All-Star center. Embiid, averaging 23.4 points and 12.3 rebounds in 31 games this season, will have surgery Friday (Saturday, PHL time) and will be evaluated in one to two weeks. He has never played more than 64 games in a season and won't again this season after he was hurt Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) in a victory over Oklahoma City. Embiid injured the radial collateral ligament in the ring finger in the first half, a grotesque injury that made teammate Ben Simmons say “I nearly threw up" when he saw the finger. Embiid's finger overlapped his pinkie to the point that it seemed he had his fingers crossed. He played most of the game with his finger taped and said he "couldn't go up with two hands." "There were a couple of times I could have grabbed with both hands but I just couldn't. I just kept tapping it," Embiid said Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). The Sixers had braced for the worst, though they were certainly used to playing without their 7-foot big man. He was hindered by illness and knee injuries during last season's playoff run, and the Sixers worked this season to balance his minutes with the proper amount of rest. They usually go as far in the postseason as Embiid can take them -- a small sigh of relief he was hurt before the All-Star break and not headed into the postseason. Mike Scott slid into the starting rotation for Thursday's (Friday, PHL time) game against Boston, along with Al Horford, Tobias Harris, Josh Richardson and Simmons. "All of a sudden, we're different," 76ers coach Brett Brown said. "We're just different. I look at this as an opportunity. Nobody's crying. This is not a 'woe is me' moment, not for me, at all. And not for my players. We'll take what we have, and what we have, I love." The 25-year-old Embiid has struggled with injuries ever since he was drafted with the No. 3 pick of the 2014 draft. He missed his first two seasons with foot injuries and hasn't played more than 64 games in any of the last three. He suffered a broken bone around his left eye and missed games in the 2018 playoffs. The Sixers signed Embiid, a native of Cameroon, to a $148 million, five-year extension that kicked in at the start of the 2018-19 season. He didn't pick up a basketball until he was a teenager, when a friend informed him that very few 7-footers succeed in soccer. A few months later, Embiid was lured to a basketball camp in the capital of Yaounde run by NBA veteran Luc Mbah a Moute, one of just two players from Cameroon to have played in the NBA. Mbah a Moute persuaded Embiid's parents to let him move 6,000 miles to Florida, and helped enroll him at Montverde Academy, one of the best high school programs in the country. He played just 28 games in his lone season at Kansas before he left for the NBA. "How does he get his health where he's back and feeling cocky and comfortable and ready to go where he's healthy, not just for this playoffs but for many playoffs," Brown asked. "I care for Joel and his future. What's best for him and his future.".....»»

ONE Championship kicks off 2020 with ONE: A NEW TOMORROW

ONE Championship will start the year with a bang when ONE: A NEW TOMORROW unfolds this Friday, 10 January, at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.  Bannering the show is the rematch between reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon  and Jonathan “The General” Haggerty, the sequel to their clash at ONE: DAWN OF HEROES last August where the Thai won the belt.  Joining Rodtang and Haggerty on the main card is ONE Atomweight Kickboxing and Muay Thai World Champion Stamp Fairtex, who battles Puja “The Cyclone” Tomar in a mixed martial arts strawweight contest.  As for local heroes, Roel “Akiyama” Rosauro is the lone Filipino in the event. He competes in the lead card against Yohan “The Ice Man” Mulia Legowo.   The rematch between Rodtang and Haggerty was supposed to happen earlier, but “The General” had to turn it down. He was still recovering from the decision loss, and he felt like mentally he was far from ready.  Now fully recovered, Haggerty plans to spoil Rodtang’s homecoming in Thailand.  “They gave me the immediate rematch [months ago], which I’m very thankful for, but I had to turn it down. In my head, I wasn’t ready. I was still recovering from the loss. I could have jumped straight back in, but then you’re not 100 percent. I’ve done that before and did not get the result I wanted,” Haggerty said.   “It was very hard for me to turn down a rematch, but now is the right time. I know it’s right, and come 10 January, it will [show that I’ve made] the right decision.” After getting frustrated by Rodtang the last time out, the Englishman promises things to do things differently this time.   “I will come less emotional because, in the fight with Rodtang, he wants you to get emotional. He wants you to fight him. He wants you to bring out your war instincts where you’re not comfortable,” Haggerty said.  “I’m going to stick off my jab and stick off my teep. I’m going to frustrate him. Let him come to fight — which he normally does — and hope we catch him with what we’ve been working on.” ONE: A NEW TOMORROW is just a precursor for things to come as The Home Of Martial Arts opens the first two months of the year with four events.  Before January ends, Joshua “The Passion” Pacio defends his ONE Strawweight World Title against former titlist Alex “Little Rock” Silva at ONE: FIRE & FURY on 31 January at the Mall Of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines.  February is just as busy for the largest martial arts organization in the world. They will host ONE: WARRIOR’S CODE in Jakarta, Indonesia on 7 February before returning to the Lion City with ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE on 28 February.  These are just some of the 50 events ONE and ONE Esports have planned for another milestone year. Catch Rodtang and Haggerty battle it out at The Home Of Martial Arts’ first event of 2020 – ONE: A NEW TOMORROW – this Friday, 10 January at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.    Catch ONE: A NEW TOMORROW LIVE at 9:30 PM on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23!.....»»

Former Astro Will Harris joins Nats after losing Game 7

By Jake Seiner, Associated Press Relief pitcher Will Harris is joining the Washington Nationals after they beat him and the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the World Series. Harris and the Nationals have agreed to a $24 million, three-year contract, the team announced Friday. The 35-year-old right-hander dominated with Houston for much of the postseason, starting October with nine consecutive scoreless innings. The Nationals finally got to him late in the World Series, and Harris allowed Howie Kendrick's go-ahead home run in Game 7. Washington went on to win its first World Series. Harris was stuck with the loss. “There’s no bitterness or anything like that from my end other than: Would I have liked it to go a different way? I mean, of course,” Harris said. “But there’s a lot of moments in my career I wish had gone a different way.” Harris acknowledged feeling uneasy when the Nationals first approached him. “That’s the first Game 7 World Series homer I’ve ever given up and I plan on it being the last,” he said. “So didn’t really know how to feel about it and how I felt about the Nationals. “It didn’t take me very long,” he added. “It took me a little while, thinking about it. I was like, ‘Look, man, there’s a lot of baseball left to play.’ And I’m looking forward to doing it in an organization that I feel really comfortable being a part of.” The right-handed Harris had a 1.50 ERA in 68 games for the Astros last season. He had been with Houston since 2015 and was an All-Star in 2016. Harris will try to bolster a bullpen that was among the worst in baseball last season. Nationals relievers blew 29 saves and had a 5.68 ERA, both worst in the NL. Harris is likely to slot behind closer Sean Doolittle as the team's top setup man. Harris filled a number of roles during his time in Houston, including as a specialist against left-handed hitters — unusual for a right-handed pitcher, but a crucial strength as Major League Baseball adopts a three-batter minimum for pitchers heading into the 2020 season. He has no preference regarding his place in the pecking order. He was more concerned with joining another title contender. “A team that’s coming off a World Series championship is definitely going to check all those boxes," he said......»»

Aldridge leads sharp-shooting Spurs past Grizzlies, 145-115

By Clay Bailey, Associated Press MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — LaMarcus Aldridge scored a season-high 40 points, DeMar DeRozan added 26 points and 10 assists, and the San Antonio Spurs shot 67% from the field in a 145-115 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). Trey Lyles finished with 17 points and Dejounte Murray scored 14 for the Spurs. The point total and shooting percentage were season-bests for San Antonio. Jaren Jackson Jr. scored 22 points for Memphis, while rookie Ja Morant finished with 19. Jonas Valanciunas had 18 points and 12 rebounds as Memphis lost for the third time in the last four. The Spurs were uncanny in their shooting accuracy from the start, connecting at 79% in the first quarter — and that included missing their final two shots in the period. The 46 points by the Spurs in the first were the most ever surrendered by the Grizzlies in a quarter. The Spurs would build the lead to 19 in the half as Aldridge had 28 points, converting 12 of 17 shots. There were occasions in the third quarter where Memphis got the deficit under double digits, and Morant provided a couple of highlight dunks. But the Spurs maintained a comfortable advantage through three quarters. San Antonio was still shooting 66% at that point. The San Antonio lead would reach 23 in the fourth before both teams emptied their benches. TIP-INS Spurs: Hit 19 of their first 22 shots. The streak of made baskets went so long that once Aldridge missed a shot late in the first quarter, it drew a loud cheer from the Memphis faithful. … Aldridge reached at least 30 points for the fourth time this season. … Marco Belinelli had 10 points. Grizzlies: Valanciunas returned to the starting lineup after missing Saturday’s (Sunday, PHL time) game against Sacramento with right foot soreness. He recorded his 16th double-double. …The 145 points given up by Memphis were the most this season. The previous high was 138 by Dallas on Nov. 9 (Nov. 10, PHL time). UP NEXT Spurs: Travel to Dallas to play the Mavericks on Thursday (Friday, PHL time). Grizzlies: Play at Oklahoma City on Thursday (Friday, PHL time)......»»
