Hornets rout Wizards 133-109 behind record-setting 1st half

By Steve Reed, Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 21 points, Dwight Howard had another double-double and the Charlotte Hornets used a record-setting first half to beat the Washington Wizards 133-109 on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time) in coach Steve Clifford's return. The Hornets made 12 of their first 13 shots and scored a franchise-record 77 points in the first half to build a 16-point lead. They extended that to 28 in the second half in a game that was never close. Kemba Walker had 19 points, Howard had 18 points and 15 rebounds and Jeremy Lamb had 16 points for the Hornets, who won for the fifth time in their last seven games. Clifford returned after missing 21 games because of headaches caused by sleep deprivation. The Hornets were 9-21 in Clifford's absence and had fallen eight games under .500. Bradley Beal had 26 points for the Wizards, whose five-game road trip got off to a rocky start. The Hornets shot 65 percent from the field in the first half, including a pair of four-point plays from Walker and Marvin Williams. Charlotte's Michael Carter-Williams and Washington's Tim Frazier were ejected and given double technical fouls after an altercation with four minutes remaining in the game. It started when Jason Smith fouled Carter-Williams, who went to retaliate before Frazier stepped in the middle. With the Wizards down by 20, coach Scott Brooks elected to have Howard, a 52 percent free-throw shooter, come off the bench to shoot Carter-Williams' free throws. Howard, clearly irritated over the move since he'd been sitting out the entire fourth quarter because of the big lead, promptly sank both free throws. He looked over at the Wizards bench and raised his palms incredulously as if to say, "Why?" Clifford quickly removed Howard from the game. The teams played in front a sparse crowd because of the wintry weather that has gripped Charlotte, which led to most schools being closed. Across town, the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League played a game closed off to fans because of the wintry mix. TIP-INS Wizards: Have allowed at least 100 points in 16 straight games. ... Were outscored 50-30 in the paint. Hornets: The 10 straight field goals made to start the game are the most to start a game since 2002-03. ... Howard recorded his 691st double-double and 25th this season. ... With a 23-point lead in the fourth quarter, Hornets fans started chanting "We want [Malik] Monk." Clifford put the rookie in with four minutes to play and he hit a three-pointer. UP NEXT Wizards: Visit Detroit on Friday (Saturday, PHL time). Hornets: Host Miami on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time)......»»

Yung defense namin parang bata -- Alas on blowout loss

Phoenix’s terrible decision-making on offense and passive defense made Rain or Shine look good. Fuel Masters head coach Louie Alas was furious with his team’s performance as Phoenix absorbed a 99-120 beating against the Elasto Painters in the 43rd PBA Philippine Cup Wednesday at the Big Dome. The mentor admitted that he felt that the game was already out of hand after his squad gave up 39 points in the opening period alone.  “Bad decision-making namin offensively fuels their transition offense,” said Alas. Rain or Shine converted Phoenix’s 19 turnovers to 30 points and outran the Fuel Masters to cop 22 fastbreak points. “First half 72% field goal (ang Rain or Shine), paano ka naman mananalo dyan? Defensive team ang gusto mong maging trademark mo, gi-give up ka ng 39 points in the first quarter, that’s bad,” said Alas, whose squad’s next assignment is on Saturday against Magnolia. “I just told them, ‘If we will have the same attitude on Saturday expect the same score.’ So it will be a test of character.” Ed Daquioag toyed with Phoenix’s defense as he scored 21 points to pace the Elasto Painters while James Yap, who was just averaging 3.3 points in three games, scored 20 points in an 8-of-10 clip from the field. If not for a bad fall on an and-one play off rookie Jason Perkins with 7:33 left in the third, Daquioag, the second-year guard out of UST, would’ve done more damage against Phoenix. He never got to shoot his bonus free throw and sat out the rest of the game. “(Si) Daquioag parang nagra-round robin. Sabi ko, ‘What kind of a defensive team are we? We have to shape up.’ Talagang kapag ang sama ng opensa ko, di kami maka-stop sa depensa,” said Alas. “We've got six keys to win, checkin natin lahat... lahat wala kaming nagawa. Yu’ng pick and roll defense namin, parang bata. Sabi ko. ‘'Yan ba ang gusto niyong defensive identity natin? Giving up 39 points in one quarter? We're not like that,’” he added. The Elasto Painters got their game going to build some separation early, and their lead ballooned to 86-47 in the third. “Nu’ng first three plays pa nga lang, nag-timeout ako ng mabilis eh. Sabi ko, ‘Guys, we're very passive.’ Dalawang TOs agad ‘yun,” said Alas. “First quarter nakadalawang timeouts kaagad ako just to stop the bleeding.” Alas pointed that he has to address the problems they had against the Elasto Painters as they prepare for Magnolia.    “Unang-una ‘yung shot selection namin. Kasi kapag nagmintis ka makikita mo kukunin mo na lang yung inbound su-shoot na yan. We need to adjust that and defensively kailangang pagbutihin namin ‘yung transition defense naming,” he said. “We need to improve on that several notches higher.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Maverick celeb disrespects idol’s memory

Remember Maverick Celebrity who has incurred the ire of colleagues because of his boorish behavior? According to a mole, even the Revered Soulmate of Illustrious Idol is not so pleased with MC's asinine antics on the set. Perhaps rumors of MC's shenanigans have reached the ears of RS. An insider related how MC had treated Poor Staffer shabbily after a draining shoot. While II would make it up to underlings by being overly generous with gifts and praises, MC was the opposite. To cap it off, MC spewed out hurtful words. That PS shouldn't expect anything as reward. That MC was no II clone. Far from it. It was as if MC spat on II's legacy.

Papa Bear Benjie Paras leads first PBA 'Homecourt' visit

PBA fans in three Metro Manila barangays got the surprise of their lives Thursday following the unannounced visit made by Hall of Famer Benjie Paras, Beau Belga of Rain or Shine, and Magnolia’s Rodney Brondial. The three players were accompanied by officials and staff of the PBA led by Officer-In-Charge Willie Marcial during their personal appearances in Barangay Marilag, Project 4 in Quezon City, and Barangays Jesus dela Pena and Tanong in Marikina as part of the new Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program of the league dubbed ‘PBA Homecourt.’ Belga and Brondial went along with the group as part of their community work after being fined by the Commissioner’s Office for various infractions just before the holiday break. Under the league’s new CSR setting, players are given the chance to write off minor fines through appearances in basketball courts within the metropolis. On the other hand, Paras, the only player to become Rookie-MVP in a season (1989), volunteered to go doing the rounds of barangays as a way of giving back to PBA fans. “Masarap at magaan sa pakiramdam na makita mong napapasaya yung mga fans, especially yung mga bata,” said Belga, who did his share of taking selfies, photos, and autograph signings during the event. A shoot around was held in all three barangay courts, with fans who made the basket receiving gift items, basketball, and select tickets from the PBA. League stickers were also attached to the barangay courts visited by the group. Marcial said the event will be held every other Thursday, or on Saturdays when no out of town games are scheduled. And like in its initial staging, the tour will be held unannounced. “Mas maganda yung ma-surprise mo sila,” said the league OIC.  .....»»
