Balanced Star effort frustrates TNT

In what was basically an offensive struggle, Star banked on a total team effort to turn back TNT and regained its footing in the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup. With both teams shooting no higher than 41 percent from the field, the Hotshots scrapped their way to an 88-77 decision Sunday at the Big Dome. Snapping a two-game slide, the win enabled Star to tie TNT in the standings with identical 4-4 cards, creating a five-team logjam in the 5th-9th spots. Finding it hard to put the ball through the hoop, the Hotshots' 36-point second quarter was enough of a cushion to hold off TNT. Despite losing a 19-point lead, Star was never really threatened by the KaTropa in the second half. Ian Sangalang led the Hotshots with 14 points and six rebounds while Allein Maliksi and Aldrech Ramos scored 13 apiece for Star. Paul Lee added 10 while playing off the bench. Still struggling in the new year, TNT's lone bright spot was Ranidel De Ocampo who came away with 21 points. Jayson Castro, who started his first game of the season, dropped 16 but was only 4-of-15 from the field. .....»»

Wild-card Dolphins draw Steelers in 1st round of playoffs

STEVEN WINE, AP Sports Writer br /> MIAMI GARDENS, Florida (AP) — As the Miami Dolphins trudged to the locker room after a 35-14 thumping by New England, fans stood and cheered the home team, losers on Sunday but playoff-bound for the first time since 2008. The crowd was looking at the big picture and the Dolphins were, too. Miami (10-6) clinched an AFC wild-card berth a week ago and will play next weekend at Pittsburgh. 'All you want is the opportunity,' guard Jermon Bushrod said. 'You know where we want to go and we've got an opportunity.' Still to be determined is whether quarterback Ryan Tannehill might contribute to any playoff push. He missed the final three regular-season games with a sprained left knee and Matt Moore has gone 2-1 as a replacement. Coach Adam Gase was noncommittal about any timetable for Tannehill's return. 'I don't even know where he's at right now,' Gase said. 'I'm going to make the call on it. If I don't feel comfortable with it, then Matt will stay the starting quarterback. I need to get a lot of information. I have to see him practice and I have to see him move around and I have to feel really good about it. I'm not going to jeopardize his career.' Moore went 24 for 34 for 205 yards and two scores and an interception against the Patriots and has eight touchdown passes in his three starts. 'He has done a great job,' Gase said. 'He has protected the ball and has operated the offense very well and has led those guys. We just have to build on what we've done in the last 3½ games with him.' If Moore starts next weekend, it will be his first playoff game. His only other postseason season experience was as an inactive backup for the Carolina Panthers in 2008. 'It's a big deal,' Moore said. 'It's hard to get there.' And harder to win there. The Dolphins are bidding for their first playoff victory since 2000. Their game at AFC North champion Pittsburgh will be a rematch. Miami won at home in Week 6 against the Steelers, 30-15. 'We beat them here in the heat,' Bushrod said. 'Now we've got to go up there and beat them in the cold.' The win over the Steelers in October helped the Dolphins turn their season around after a 1-4 start. 'We're a different team; they're a different team,' Gase said. 'Both of us have different players. That's what makes this part of the season interesting.' If the Dolphins win next week, they'll face New England again. The Patriots swept the regular-season series between AFC East rivals for the first time since 2012. The Dolphins are in the playoffs even though they have been outgained by 798 yards and outscored by 17 points this season. But in games decided by a touchdown or less, they've won nine in a row, despite a slew of injuries. Gase's players sounded confident of their chances against the Steelers. 'They're a great team,' receiver Jarvis Landry said. 'So are we.'   .....»»
