PBA: Scottie Thompson caps off memorable, historical night for PBA

What should be an obscure and rainy night for most residents of Metro Manila has been rather historical in nature for the PBA. The league should remember June 20, 2018 as one of the more historical nights in league history. According to PBA statistician Fidel Mangonon III, there were three milestones achieved today in the two games today, namely the Phoenix-Globalport tussle and the battle between Ginebra and Columbian. The margin of victory for both teams were historical in itself, for it is the first time since Sept. 3, 2000 that both teams in a doubleheader had won by 27 points or more. Phoenix won by 27 against Globalport, 135-108, and Ginebra destroyed Columbian Dyip, also by 27, 134-107. In case you were wondering, the Sept. 3, 2000 games were a pair of playoff games, which were headlined by San Miguel - Sta. Lucia in Game 1 of the best-of-7 Commissioner's Cup Finals, which the Beermen demolished the Realtors by 28, 106-78, and Alaska reigning supreme over Tanduay, also by 28, 119-71, in the battle for third. Yes, there was a battle for third. It is also the first time since July 6, 2007 as two players finished with a triple-double. Import Eugene Phelps (Phoenix) tallied 37 points, 23 rebounds, and 10 assists, while dimunitive point guard recorded his 3rd career triple-double of 12 markers, 12 boards, and 10 dimes.  San Miguel's import Galen Young submitted 18 points, 14 rebounds, 10 assists in a 103-96 Battle for 3rd loss vs Red Bull, while Alaska's reinforcement Rossell Ellis posted 22 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists in a 113-85 win against TNT in Game 1 of the best-of-7 PBA Fiesta Conf. Finals. More importantly, Mark Caguioa moved up in the list of most prolific scorers in league history. The 38-year old moved up to 15th all-time in the scoring list at 9,931 career points after scoring eight tonight.   ___   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

NCRPO notes rise in indiscriminate firing incidents in Metro Manila

The number of indiscriminate firing incidents in Metro Manila has increased this year compared to last year, according to initial data from the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO). Despite the increase, the police have not monitored any victims of stray bullets as of Monday afternoon. A comparative data of incidents issued by the NCRPO showed that from Dec. 16, 2016 to Jan. 1, 2017, there were only four incidents of indiscriminate firing or illegal discharge of firearms. This is higher compared with the period of Dec. 16, 2017 to Jan. 1, 2018 with 13 incidents recorded.

Gilas Guiao to Jordan s Stiebing: 'I was challenging him to take my ass'

MANILA, Philippines --- One thing about head coach Yeng Guiao is that he's not going take anything from anyone. He will stand up for himself. Seriously, literally anyone familiar with the PBA knows that as a fact. Guiao and his Gilas Pilipinas were tested Wednesday at the Meralco Gym here as the national team's practice game against Jordan unfortunately ended with a commotion. As Jordan was protesting a foul call in the fourth quarter, things escalated to the point that the Jordan national team ended up walking out for good. The final incident was triggered after a Jordan player ended up throwing the ball on Scottie Thompson --- an action that merits automatic ejection in the PBA, much like what happened to Blackwater's Mike Digregorio a couple of weeks back in the 2018 Governors' Cup. While that action seems harmless enough and the penalty actually severe on a first look, the PBA Commissioner's office reasons that those plays can lead to fights. It almost did Wednesday. Guiao and Jordan head coach Joseph Stiebing got into an intense verbal altercation at mid-court and the visitors decided to end the game prematurely at the 6:26 mark of the fourth and with Gilas up, 82-73. "I felt that they were getting too rugged on us. Even in the beginning, even in the first game. Of course, it's also the responsibility of the referees to take control of the game. It's also my responsibility to keep my players safe. There's a lot of second motion happening, they were very rugged," Guiao said, narrating on how the game ended up from being a friendly to a near-brawl. "The coach [Stiebing] said he was ready to take my ass. I was challenging him to take my ass pero hindi naman niya ginawa," he added. Stiebing didn't deny that he had some choice words for Guiao but he said that those came during the heat of the moment. The Jordan coach for his part, was very particular about Guiao allegedly cursing at his players. Stiebing said he asked Guiao to stop but coach Yeng persisted. Stiebing's reasoning is that coaches cursing at opposing players could lead to fights breaking out. Which again, it almost happened Wednesday night. "When an opposing coach curses at your players and calls them names, I think that's crossing the lines, and I think that's what got me upset. I asked the coach earlier, I said, 'Please, don't talk to my players.' And then he did it again. I've had players before, if a coach curses at them, they'll go after them and start a fight. I think that's unprofessional," Stiebing said of Guiao. "And you know, I told the coach [Guiao] something that I shouldn't have said but I didn't curse at him and it was just at the heat of the battle. But I did ask him twice not to curse at my guys and he continued to do it even after that," he added. Guiao naturally defended Gilas and the actions of him and the national team in this tune-up game gone wrong. Coach Yeng insists that they didn't do anything wrong and that the least Jordan could have done was be respectful guests. Countless second motions don't make respectful guests says Guiao. "I don't know if they're really inherently rugged or dirty, they were accusing us of being dirty. I don't know what dirty things we did, hindi ko alam sinasabi nila. But sila, ang dami nilang second motion. Even that incident that triggered the whole thing, their player threw the ball at our player, which was unnecessary," he said. "They're our guest ano, maybe it's a two-way thing. But we did not do anything to them that they did not deserve. Ganun lang yun," Guiao added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Pacquiao vs. Broner officially set for January 19th

It's official.  Eight-division boxing world champion and current reigning WBA (regular) Welterweight World Champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao will be making his way back into the squared-circle next January.  Pacquiao, who will be 40 years old by fight night, will be defending his title against former four-division world champion Adrien Broner on January 19th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.  The welterweight title bout will be Pacquiao's return to the US after a two-year absence.         View this post on Instagram                   PACQUIAO vs BRONER January 19 | Showtime PPV #PacquiaoBroner A post shared by Manny Pacquiao (@mannypacquiao) on Nov 19, 2018 at 11:14am PST "I just want to prove that I’m still in boxing, Manny Pacquiao is still in boxing, and my career is just continuing, my journey in boxing is continuing," Pacquiao said during the officiall press conference in New York, early Tuesday morning, Manila time.

ONE Championship: Eduard Folayang Wants To Celebrate His Birthday With A World Title Win

With his highly-anticipated encounter against Singapore’s Amir Khan for the vacant ONE Lightweight World Championship set to take place a day after his birthday, local hero Eduard “Landslide” Folayang cannot think of a better present for himself than to have a gold-plated belt wrapped around his waist once again. The Filipino superstar will celebrate his 35th birthday on Thursday, 22 November, a day before his scheduled five-round championship bout with Khan in the co-main event of ONE: CONQUEST OF CHAMPIONS, which emanates from the 20,000-capacity Mall Of Asia Arena in Manila. “There’s no greater gift I can receive on my 35th birthday other than winning the ONE Lightweight Word Title back,’’ he expressed. “And there’s no better place to do it but in front of my countrymen.” After relinquishing his lightweight crown to Martin “The Situ-Asian” Nguyen in November 2017, Folayang immediately went back to the drawing board to check where things went wrong. He amazingly worked his way back to the upper echelon of the talent-filled lightweight division — first dominating Kharun Atlangeriev in three rounds last May, and then edging out Aziz Pahrudinov in a 15-minute thriller two months later. The Baguio City native treats the opportunity of reclaiming the ONE Lightweight World Championship both as a reward and vindication. “There were some who doubted my decision to continue fighting after the knockout loss to Martin Nguyen nearly a year ago. After two wins in ONE Championship, I am back in the title picture,” Folayang stated. “I feel very fulfilled because I made the right decision to compete again. Also, my hard work has paid off. It will be a great birthday present for me to bring home the belt again. It's an added motivation going into the bout against Amir Khan.” Even if he is pegged as the heavy favorite to win the bout against the Singaporean, Folayang stressed that he is not taking his opponent for granted. Khan holds the exceptional records for the most wins (11) and finishes (10) in ONE Championship, scoring impressive victories over the likes of Bashir Ahmad, Jimmy Yabo, Jaroslav Jartim, and Sung Jong Lee. The 24-year-old phenom is coming off the biggest win of his promotional stint yet, submitting Folayang’s Team Lakay stablemate Honorio “The Rock” Banario with a first-round rear-naked choke this past September. “Landslide” knows the Evolve MMA representative poses a dangerous threat, but he is confident of his chances. “He is young and talented. I am also sure that he is hungry,” Folayang said.  “There is no room for complacency in this match. Of course, the momentum is on my side, but I plan to sustain it. I started the year with a win. I followed it up with another big win. The timing speaks for itself.” In his return to the global stage, Folayang boldly predicts that fans in attendance at the Mall Of Asia Arena will witness the coronation of a fifth Filipino mixed martial arts World Champion on Friday. “2018 has been a very good year to me,” he continued. “After November 23, I’m confident that the Philippines and Team Lakay will have another new world champion in the sport.”.....»»

Old School Power Rankings 2018-19: Weeks 3 and 4

By Scott Wraight, NBA.com It was bound to happen, right? The King was never, ever going to give up his throne to anyone else. Period. Because of that, we had to separate him from the rest of the field and give out a new ranking: ATHO (All To His Own). So unless something crazy happens during the season -- or an injury -- No. 1 will have an asterisk of sorts. Now that the chase has opened up for everyone else, it should make for an interesting and intriguing run to the finish line, asterisk be damned. Notes: - Statistics are through games of Nov. 15 (Nov. 16, PHL time) - Any player who turns 32 during regular season can be added to rankings. - Check out previous rankings - Send comments to my email. If it's good -- and clean -- it may appear in a future column. Be sure to include your first name and city. ATHO. LeBron James (33), Los Angeles Lakers Previous rank: 1 Latest stats: 6 games, 27.5 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 6.2 apg Season stats: 27.6 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 7.2 apg Wednesday's (Thursday, PHL time) 44-point performance against the Trail Blazers was the one. That was the one that pushed the King into his own tier, his own neighborhood, his own ranking. He just refuses to make it fair for everyone else. That's how good he is. In addition to Wednesday's (Thursday, PHL time) superior effort, James has gone for 25 or more in eight of the last 10. _______________________________________________________________ 1. Marc Gasol (33), Memphis Grizzlies Previous rank: 4 Latest stats: 7 games, 16.4 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 4.6 apg Season stats: 15.9 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 4.1 apg After eclipsing 15 points in just three of the first six, Gasol has surpassed the mark in four straight, which included Wednesday's (Thursday, PHL time) effort in which he tied a career high with six three's. Of course the splits over the last seven left us puzzled. In four wins, Gasol went for 21.0 ppg, 9.8 rpg and 52.2 3PT%. In three losses: 10.3 ppg, 7.7 rpg and 0-for-8 from deep. 2. Chris Paul (33), Houston Rockets Previous rank: 3 Latest stats: 8 games, 16.0 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 7.1 apg Season stats: 17.0 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 7.5 apg We were ready to move Paul to the top of the list until Thursday's (Friday, PHL time) effort: 10 points (4-for-10 shooting) and seven assists against the Warriors. In two previous games, Paul managed 21 and 26 on 15-for-25 shooting. Of course four previous contests saw him combine for just 39 points on 15-for-47 (31.9) shooting. It's been a bit of a roller coaster ride in November. 3. LaMarcus Aldridge (33), San Antonio Spurs Previous rank: 2 Latest stats: 7 games, 14.1 ppg, 12.9 rpg, 1.6 apg Season stats: 17.4 ppg, 11.0 rpg, 2.4 apg He's scoring at home while rebounding on the road. In three home games, Aldridge went for 21.0 ppg and 9.3 rpg. In four road games, he averaged 9.0 ppg and 15.5 rpg. Aldridge has been hot and cold this month, failing to score in double figures in two of seven and scoring 20 or more just twice. One consistent has been the board work, grabbing 10 or more in five straight. 4. JJ Redick (34), Philadelphia 76ers Previous rank: 7 Latest stats: 7 games, 17.9 ppg, 1.4 rpg, 3.7 apg Season stats: 18.2 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 3.5 apg Redick is feeling it of late, pouring in 20 or more points and hitting at least three three-pointers in three consecutive games. Coincidentally, he's started the last three games after beginning the season on the bench. We've also taken notice of Redick's volume of long-range shots, making 3.0 treys a game and attempting 8.3 -- both career highs. 5. Lou Williams (32), LA Clippers Previous rank: Just missed Latest stats: 6 games, 21.3 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 5.7 apg Season stats: 19.4 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 4.1 apg Hello there, newbie. Williams, who just turned 32 on Oct. 27, sprints up the list on the strength of five games with 20 or more points -- all while averaging less than 30 minutes (29.4) per game. In fact, the only game he didn't go for 20, he added 10 assists. Digging deeper, the last time Williams failed to break double-figure scoring was Nov. 20, 2017. 6. Kyle Lowry (32), Toronto Raptors Previous rank: 5 Latest stats: 6 games, 13.7 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 10.0 apg Season stats: 16.1 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 10.7 apg Lowry, who finally saw his streak of games with 10-plus assists end at nine, has been a bit of a road warrior over the last handful of games. In his last three home games, he averaged 9.3 points, 8.7 assists and 40.0 FG%. In three road games, Lowry managed 18.0 points, 11.3 assists and 46.3 FG%. 7.  Wesley Matthews (32), Dallas Mavericks Previous rank: 6 Latest stats: 5 games, 12.4 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 2.4 apg Season stats: 16.2 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 2.4 apg After starting the season with six straight double-figure scoring games, Matthews has gone for 10 or more in just three of the last seven. He missed one game with a hamstring injury and had to leave Wednesday's (Thursday, PHL time) game after just 21 minutes with the same injury, so that'll skew the numbers a bit, which is why he only fell one spot. 8.  Taj Gibson (33), Minnesota Timberwolves Previous rank: NA Latest stats: 7 games, 12.4 ppg, 7.6 rpg, 1.9 apg Season stats: 11.3 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 1.4 apg Gibson started the season sluggishly, failing to score more than 13 points in any of the first 10 games. Since then, the gritty veteran has gone for 15 or more in three of the last five. Also in those first 10 games, Gibson managed to snag nine or more boards just once. He's done that three times in the last five contests. 9.  Dwight Howard (32), Washington Wizards Previous rank: NA Latest stats: 7 games, 12.6 ppg, 9.0 rpg, 0.4 apg Season stats: 12.6 ppg, 9.0 rpg, 0.4 apg After missing the first seven games of the season with a back injury, Howard is starting to get into a groove. In addition to scoring in double figures in four straight, he has snatched eight or more rebounds in five of the last six. His return to the lineup might also be a reason the Wizards have started to turn things around, winning four of their last six. 10. Goran Dragic (32), Miami Heat Previous rank: 9 Latest stats: 4 games, 16.0 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 4.5 apg Season stats: 17.1 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 4.8 apg The theme song from Facts of Life keeps running through my head: "You take the good, you take the bad ..." That rings very true with Dragic, who in his four games had three with 20 or more points and one with a goose egg on 0-for-7 shooting. Now, we won't pile on since we realize he missed a pair of games with a knee injury. Just missed the cut: Paul Millsap, JJ Barea, Dwyane Wade, Al Horford, Jeff Green The views on this page do not necessarily reflect the views of the NBA, its clubs or Turner Broadcasting......»»
