Nets pull away in fourth to beat Magic 111-104

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — D'Angelo Russell and Caris LeVert each scored 16 points to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 111-104 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Jarrett Allen added 15 points and DeMarre Carroll had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Nets, who stopped a three-game losing streak. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Joe Harris also scored 14 and Allen Crabbe had 13. Nikola Vucevic led Orlando with 24 points and 15 rebounds, and Mario Hezonja added 23 points for the Magic, who have lost nine of their last 11. Aaron Gordon added 15 points and D.J. Augustin had 14. Brooklyn outscored the Magic 17-2 to start the fourth quarter with a combination of great defense and good spacing at the offensive end. Spencer Dinwiddie started things with a three-pointer and Harris followed another. When the Magic pressed the perimeter, Brooklyn went inside for dunks and layups from Dante Cunningham and Allen, whose slam with 6:12 left gave Brooklyn a 102-83 lead. Orlando missed its first 11 shots in the fourth period. Magic coach Frank Vogel sent in bench players for the final four minutes, but the lead didn't get under 10 until the final minute. Crabbe hit three straight three-pointers in the middle of the third period to push the Nets to an 81-67 lead, but was subbed after the last one and took his team's offense to the bench with him. The Nets had just one field goal in the final 4:45 of the quarter, opening the door for a Magic rally. Vucevic started a 14-4 run with a three-pointer, Augustin added another and by the time Khem Birch tipped in a miss, the Magic had pulled within 85-81 to end the period. The game started as an offensive shootout with both teams anxious to push the pace and not too anxious to stop the opponent from doing the same. Carroll hit his first four shots and had 11 points in the first half, when the Nets led by as many as 12 points before settling for a 58-51 halftime advantage. Vucevic had 14 and Gordon 13 for the Magic, who shot only three free throws for the half. TIP-INS Nets: Brooklyn is 11-6 against the Southeast Division this season. ... The Nets average 43.7 points off the bench, second in the NBA. Their bench contributed 39 against Orlando. Magic: G Rodney Purvis got his first NBA start after signing a contract for the rest of the season. Purvis finished two 10-day contracts with Orlando. Purvis was 0-for-6 and scored two points. ... It appears the season is over for SG Evan Fournier and SF Terrence Ross, who were both attempting to return from knee injuries. UP NEXT Nets: Visit Miami on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time). Magic: Host the Chicago Bulls on Friday (Saturday, PHL time)......»»

Claudia Barretto and Juliana Gomez Got Selfies With Brooklyn Beckham

Last night, a small crowd(or maybe big, what do we even use as scale?) formed at Bonifacio High Street as Brooklyn Beckham dropped by the Bench Flagship Store. As people cheered and took photos of him, our local celebrities were also excited to meet the brand's newest ambassador. Inside the store, guests were treated to a shopping party filled with upbeat music and samples from the newly-opened Bench Caf. What stood out for me was thesisigwrap with tangy calamansi foam and the pandanmojito---both of which had unexpected tastes.

Shaq to LeBron: No need to chase titles anymore

Shaquille O'Neal has some advice for LeBron James: There's no need to chase championships anymore. Take it from someone who's been there. That's the advice the Hall of Fame center has for his one-time teammate, as shared by ESPN's Ian Begley. "My problem toward the end of my career was I was trying to shut everybody up and I was greedy [for more championships]," O'Neal said in an interview with ESPN at a pre-draft event on Friday evening for teens from the Y in Brooklyn. "After I got to three [titles], everybody was saying I couldn't get another. So I got four. After I got the fourth, they were saying I couldn't get another one. So I was trying to make quick stops to get it. Phoenix, Cleveland, Boston." O'Neal won three championships with the Los Angeles Lakers and one with the Miami Heat, but he didn't win any in the final three seasons of his 19-year career. He doesn't think James should try to chase championships at this point in his 15-year career. James can test free agency this summer if he declines the player option on his contract. "Somebody told me a long time ago -- they said your book is already set [before the later stages of your career]. You can add index pages toward the end, but your book is already set. So LeBron's book is already set," O'Neal said. "He done already passed up legends; he done already made his mark -- he has three rings. His mentality now is probably: I want to get four before [Golden State Warriors guard] Steph [Curry] does. That's probably his mentality now. But if I was him, I wouldn't be trying to get four, five and six because it ain't going to matter. It's just something else to talk about, something else to add to the pages. He's a legend, talked about as who is the best between he and Michael Jordan, so he's set." After getting traded to the Miami Heat in February 2008, O'Neal was subsequently dealt again in June of 2009 to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Then in the offseason of 2010, he signed with the Boston Celtics, which turned out to be his final season in the NBA. James has two championships with the Heat, and one with the Cavaliers, the franchise's sole title. He's also a three-time Finals MVP, a four-time regular season MVP, a 12-time All-NBA First Team member, a five-time All-Defensive Team member, and a former Rookie of the Year. As of the 2017-18 season, James is #7 on the NBA career scoring leaders list (31,038 points), #11 on the career assists leaders list (8,208), and #16 on the career steals leaders list (1,865). James has until 11:59pm on June 29 (11:59 am, June 30, PHL time), to decide whether or not he opts out of his current Cavaliers contract......»»

I’ll have to reevaluate myself – De Leon on last playing year with Ateneo

Bea De Leon will use her time playing with the Foton Tornadoes in the Philippine Superliga Invitational slated to begin on June 23 to think about her future with the Ateneo de Manila University Lady Eagles. The prized middle blocker still has one playing year left in the UAAP but de Leon is not yet ready to commit to the Lady Eagles for one last run for the blue and white. The Tornadoes made a recruiting coup by signing De Leon, who was introduced to the media Saturday in a press conference. “That’s a very hard question to finalize,” said De Leon when asked about her collegiate career plan. “As of now, I’m taking it one step at a time.” “It’s a very huge decision for me. But this is my first step after this, after playing in the Invitational we’ll see po if ready na po ba akong bumalik sa Ateneo or not,” she continued. However, a source privy with the lucrative Foton deal, said that De Leon is in for a two-year stint with the franchise bannered by the towering 6-foot-5 Jaja Santiago and 6-foot-2 Dindin Santiago-Manabat. The PSL has three conferences per season composed of the import-laden Grand Prix, the Invitational and the All-Filipino.    De Leon helped the Lady Eagles claim its last of back-to-back titles in the UAAP back in 2015, finish as runner-up in Seasons 78 and 79 and a third place in Season 80 despite leading a rebuilding Ateneo squad.    The Lady Eagle, who played for the national team in the 2015 Asian U-23 and the Singapore Southeast Asian Games, said that she has to reevaluate herself to know if she still has the drive to play for Ateneo.   “A lot of people kasi will say na they’ll do anything to play one more game in the UAAP. But what it takes kasi to get there, all the sacrifices and the commitment and the hard work. I’ll have to reevaluate myself if I’m still able to give that kind of commitment to Ateneo,” she said. “Because if I’m not there for the right reasons, more or less, mas magiging pabigat pa ako,” De Leon added. “If I end there I want to be 100% and I want nothing more but to give everything that I have for my school.”       De Leon, who is yet to decide on her last playing year with Ateneo, is the latest Lady Eagles standout that signed with a PSL club after Jho Maraguinot inked a deal with Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors just a week ago.            --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Strife remains despite joint plea on recount

By Charlie V. Manalo and Pat C. Santos A day after a joint manifestation was signed by the camp of former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, it has become evident that Vice President Maria Leonor Robredo is not willing to withdraw her pending motions before the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), Marcos’ spokesman lawyer Vic Rodriguez said.Marcos personally signed the document “withdrawing all and any pending motions relative to his election protest” but it was Robredo’s counsel, election lawyer Romulo Macalintal who signed for the Vice President.Rodriguez stressed Robredo has no intention of withdrawing her pending motions because she did not sign the joint motion that her lawyer presented to media. Macalintal, however, said the Vice President is heeding the challenge “in withdrawing all motions before PET to pave the way for a ballot recount.” “We accept the challenge of Mr. Marcos and his lawyer to sign a joint motion to withdraw any and all pending motions and incidents at the Presidential Electoral Tribunal which may cause the delay of the recount of ballots from the pilot provinces of Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental,” Romulo Macalintal, Robredo lead counsel said in a statement.Rodriguez in his joint motion, however, said only the name of Robredo’s counsel, lawyer Romulo Macalintal, appeared on the document.“A joint manifestation is a major pleading and it cannot be done through counsel alone. It should also be signed by the client because it needs his or her conformity. Since Mrs. Robredo did not sign the pleading together with her lawyer, it is obvious that she has no intention to withdraw her motions,” Rodriguez said.According to Rodriguez, the absence of Robredo’s signature puts into question her sincerity to hasten the pace of the electoral ‘Robredo can disown motion’ It likewise casts doubt on the authority of Macalintal who signed the motion. Robredo could later on even disown the motion because it was made without her conformity.“Without Mrs. Robredo’s signature, the motion is a mere scrap of paper and may be later disowned by her as having been signed without her authority. It seems that she merely wants to think fraudulently,” Rodriguez said.Rodriguez also questioned the joint motion prepared by Macalintal saying the same only covered pending motions and not future motions that may delay the proceedings. He said Marcos’ joint manifestation was more sincere because it covered both present and future motions in the election proceedings.“Atty. Macalintal is saying they are withdrawing but if you will read their joint motion, it only pertains to pending motions and not to future motions. In our case, it is all encompassing, from pending to future motions. Why are they backing out?” Rodriguez remarked.Rodriguez also took exception to the assertion made by Macalintal in his joint motion that Marcos has a pending “Partial Motion for Reconsideration” dated December 4, 2017 asking the PET to reconsider its earlier ruling allowing them to secure soft copies of the ballot images.Rodriguez pointed out that the said Partial Motion for Reconsideration had already been resolved by the Tribunal in its Resolution dated January 10, 2018.“It seems Atty. Macalintal has not studied the case of his client because that was resolved a long time ago. And he should know there are pending motions before the PET,” Rodriguez stated.Rodriguez also emphasized that if Macalintal was indeed serious about withdrawing all motions, he should have done it through the official route and not meet in a fast food restaurant for the signing.“Signing a major pleading in a pizza restaurant shows an utter lack of respect for the judicial process. There is a proper way to do things and this involves going to the law office of your opposing counsel and handing over the proper documents to them,” Rodriguez said.This is the reason, he pointed out, the Marcos camp went to the law office of Macalintal and his co-counsel Ma. Bernadette Sardillo located at Ortigas Avenue in Pasig City. According to Rodriguez, they went there first thing in the morning yesterday to give them the complete set of copies of the joint manifestation signed by Marcos and his counsel, George Garcia, together with the corresponding cover letter.“The challenge to meet at a fast food restaurant is unbecoming of an officer of the Court. It is unlawyerly and at most more of a publicity stunt. We hope the other camp has the decency to act accordingly,” Rodriguez said.“It appears that Atty. Macalintal wants to pull fast one on the public with his publicity stunt. As far as we are concerned, the joint motion he signed has no binding effect because it was not signed by his client. For all Macalintal’s protestations, our joint manifestation is ready for him and Mrs. Robredo to sign,” said Rodriguez. “We are still waiting.” Rodriguez said. Macalintal issues own challenge“I am inviting Mr. Marcos and his lawyer today at 9 a.m. to sign a joint motion. This is to confirm that we are not causing the delay in the recount of ballots,” Macalintal added.“It is Mr. Marcos’ raising of baseless allegations and irrelevant issues that is causing the delay in the recount,” he noted.“To remove all of these accusations flying back and forth I reiterate my challenge withdraw all your motions that could serve to delay the recount, I will withdraw all my motions that has been pending so that there will be no outstanding issues, no instances that needs to be studied by the Tribunal so that we can proceed to the opening and counting of the ballots,” Marcos said in a press conference last January 29 in Manila.“That has been my contention since May 10 of 2016 until now. It has been the same, I have been consistent, I reissue the challenge to Mrs. Robredo, withdraw all your motions, I will withdraw all of mine and let us proceed with the recount,” Marcos added.Marcos issued the challenged to stop the “delaying” issues being thrown by both camps to each other.At the same time, the vice presidential candidate in the May 2016 polls bared “solid and incontrovertible” evidence of massive fraud that transpired during the national and local elections held nearly two years ago.Marcos questioned the presence of square shapes in the ballot images instead of the oval shapes which voters shaded for their choice of candidates.“When we voted, we had the oval shapes. How come in the ballot images, the ovals are gone and instead we have the squares. What does this mean?” he said.He added, “(w)e could see based on the election results summary that the squares indicated the candidates that were voted upon. But this is a new feature that the Commission on Elections (Comelec) and Smartmatic added in the system and I had been told they did not inform the candidates of the presence of this feature in the images.”But Robredo slammed Marcos’ claims that there were “massive frauds” that transpired in the May 2016 elections.“His remarks are laughing matters as far as I am concerned. If laughter is the best medicine, then we can consider it the best medicine for us for the day,” Macalintal said in a press conference.“The excited and hysterical claim of (Marcos) and his spokesperson Atty. Vic Rodriguez that they allegedly uncovered solid and inconvertible evidence of massive fraud that transpired in the 2016 elections’ based on their own copies of alleged ballot images used in the said election, is highly ridiculous if not outright frivolous,” the lawyer added.Macalintal said Marcos’ claims of discrepancies in the hundreds of decrypted ballot images from Camarines Sur and Negros Oriental only showed that the latter’s protest “is facing its dismissal.”“He has no evidence at all. That is why he is now using evidence outside the election protest that he filed sa Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET),” he said.Marcos filed the protest on June 29, 2016, claiming that the camp of Robredo cheated in the automated polls in May that year.He sought the annulment of about a million votes cast in three provinces - Lanao del Sur, Basilan and Maguindanao.In his protest, Marcos contested the results in a total of 132,446 precincts in 39,221 clustered precincts covering 27 provinces and cities.In his preliminary conference briefing, Marcos also sought for a recount in Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental.Robredo filed her answer in August last year and filed a counter-protest, questioning the results in more than 30,000 polling precincts in several provinces where Marcos won.She also sought the dismissal of the protest for lack of merit and jurisdiction of PET.The high tribunal, in a ruling earlier last year, junked Robredo’s plea and proceeded with the case after finding the protest sufficient in form and substance.Robredo supposedly won the vice presidential race with 14,418,817 votes or 263,473 more than Marcos’ 14,155,344 votes......»»
