PBA: Macklin makes game-winning free throws in final game for Magnolia

What a way for Vernon Macklin to make his way out of the PBA. Macklin gifted Magnolia one last win in the 2018 Commissioner's Cup, draining the crucial free throws that allowed the Hotshots to take a dramatic 81-79 victory over Meralco Friday at the Big Dome. Tied at 79, Paul Lee found Macklin on the break for a possible game-winner. Macklin almost immediately drew a foul after taking the pass and he ended up making two free throws for the lead with 3.1 seconds to go. In the game's final play on the other end, Chris Newsome failed to complete a perfectly-executed alley-oop and Magnolia won its third straight game of the conference for a 3-1 record. "I'm very proud of V-Mack," head coach Chito Victolero said. "Binigay niya par in lahat. I'm very happy. May contracy na siya sa China pero go-hard pa rin," he added. The Bolts had several opportunities to close the game out but several missed free throws from Arinze Onuaku and a questionable long two from Newsome ended up dooming Meralco. Magnolia certainly took advantage of that as a Mark Barroca free throw made it 77-79 for the Bolts. Paul Lee then eventually tied the game from the line and after Newsome's long miss, Macklin finally regained the lead for the Hotshots. Macklin led the way with 21 points and 15 rebounds for Magnolia while Lee added 20 of his own. Barroca finished with 18 points. The Bolts got 23 points from Onuaku but the hulking import missed 16 of his 21 attempts from the line. Meralco dropped to 3-2 with the loss.   The Scores: MAGNOLIA 81 – Macklin 21, Lee 20, Barroca 18, Reavis 6, Jalalon 6, Ramos 3, Herndon 3, Dela Rosa 2, Brondial 2, Pascual 0, Sangalang 0, Simon 0, Abundo 0. MERALCO 79 – Onuaku 23, Newsome 15, Amer 14, Dillinger 12, Canaleta 7, Caram 4, Baracael 2, Hugnatan 2, Hodge 0. Quarters: 19-16; 34-31; 56-50; 81-79.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Macklin savoring last ‘bittersweet’ days with Magnolia

Vernon Macklin is just days away from leaving Magnolia and he plans to spend his best days with his team before he flies to China for the National Basketball League. And the man once known as "Mack Attack" when he played for Ginebra in the PBA 2013 Commissioner's Cup began his farewell tour when he led Magnolia to a 126-101 shellacking of Columbian.

PBA: Meralco’s Onuaku getting back to health after tough start to conference

Meralco Bolts reinforcement Arinze Onuaku is slowly getting back into shape following a rough start to the 2018 PBA Commissioners Cup. Tough in the sense that the former Best Import wasn’t at a hundred percent to start the conference. Onuaku battled a stomach virus before the start of the Commissioners Cup, going in and out of the hospital, but has managed to keep producing for the Bolts, putting up 30 points and 19 boards in his debut - a win over Columbian Dyip - and then going for 21 points and 14 boards in their close loss to Globalport. Friday night at the Araneta Coliseum against the NLEX Road Warriors, Onuaku was again effective for the Bolts as he put up 15 points, pulled down a game-high 23 rebounds to help get the dominant 106-90 victory. After the game, the 30-year old Maryland native said that he was indeed in better shape than the weeks prior. “I feel better, last week was tough, but we had a little time off so I was able to get my body recovered a little bit.” With Meralco improving to 2-1 after Friday’s contest, Onuaku is confident that he and the Bolts are in a good spot to contend for a championship, especially with the right game plan. “We’re gonna be alright, we just gotta continue to put the work in in practice and do what we practiced in the game.” “Today I think we were able to take some things from practice to the game that helped us.” Onuaku added. For the second game in a row, Onuaku wasn’t Meralco’s main offensive threat, as guard Chris Newsome paced the Bolts’ offense with 30 points, but that wasn’t an issue for the six-foot-nine forward. Plus, being tightly guarded all game long likely played a factor as well. “That’s what happens when you got three people on you, you pass the ball, so that’s what I’mma do.” Arinze finished with five assists, just one shy of playmaker Baser Amer’s team-high six. Up next for Arinze and the Bolts will be a showdown with defending champions San Miguel Wednesday, May 9th at the Mall of Asia Arena.       .....»»

PBA: Manuel powers Alaska to decimation of Columbian

Vic Manuel heated up in the second quarter and Alaska bludgeoned Columbian, 134-103, to score its second straight win in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. The hardworking forward accounted for almost half of the Aces' production in the killer second quarter, going for 20 points in that period alone to dismantle the Dyip by halftime, 73-37. Manuel finished with 26 points on a 12-of-17 shooting from the field off the bench, to go with four rebounds, while import Antonio Campbell got a double-double with 22 points and 13 rebounds. The duo were responsible for Alaska outscoring Columbian in that telling frame, 42-9, while also getting things done ...Keep on reading: PBA: Manuel powers Alaska to decimation of Columbian.....»»

PBA: Kiefer after NLEX s 20-point loss to Dyip in Commissioner s Cup: Syempre nakakahiya

ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal --- Columbian beating NLEX may not be as surprising as it looked like considering the confidence the Dyip have now early in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup. The margin of victory though, that's another thing. Columbian easily drove past NLEX Saturday at the Ynares Center here, scoring a convincing 123-103 victory. The Road Warriors, obviously, were not amused by their own performance especially following a breakout campaign in the All-Filipino. "Oo syempre nakakahiya nga eh. Syempre, nakakahiya," guard Kiefer Ravena said. "After the semis berth last conference, bigla kang tatambakan ng bente di ba? Plus may import pa, baligtad. So nakakahiya for us but tapos na yun," he added. Asked if there was overconfidence on their part, Kiefer acknowledged the possibility before backing out almost immediately. The no. 2 overall pick just said that this loss to the Dyip was a harsh wake-up call. "Meron naman, totoo na meron naman din [overconfidence]," he said. "Hindi naman sa pagiging overconfident pero siguro yung mindset na nasa bakasyon pa and mindset na parang nagko-coast pa. Lahat naman kami doon at fault. So kami, kailangan lang namin is ayun, okay na, wake up call. 20 points. If that can't wake you up, what will? For us, we start practice tomorrow, forget about this," Ravena added.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

King stars as Columbian blasts Blackwater in PBA Comms’ Cup opener

Columbian Dyip ushered in a new era for the Kia Motors franchise as planned. The Dyip opened the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup in style after trouncing the Blackwater Elite, 126-98, Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. With its import CJ Aiken having little to show on the offensive end, Columbian found an unlikely weapon in Jerramy King. King, whom the Dyip picked up from the free agent pool, erupted for a career-best 30 points that went with seven rebounds, four assists and three steals. "Good to win the first game, but I expected the game to be more of a grind than anything else, but our guys blew them out with our energy," said Columbian coach Ricky Dandan.
