Cargo Movers collect fifth straight win

BACOOR CITY --- F2 Logistics banked on its collective effort to overcome a hard-fighting Cignal squad, 25-22, 23-25, 25-14, 25-17, and stretch its winning streak in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Thursday at the Bacoor Strike Gym here. Ara Galang and Majoy Baron led the attack of the Cargo Movers, who annexed its fifth straight win. Smart made short work of Foton, 25-21, 25-19, 25-18, to notch its first back-to-back wins. Despite missing setter Jasmine Nabor and middle blockers Celine Domingo and Czarina Carandang due to their respective academic commitments, the troika of Aiko Urdas, Grethcel Soltones and Jerrili Malabanan powered the Giga Hitters to earn their second win in the second round to improve to 4-5. Urdas unleashed 18 points off 16 kills and a pair of service aces. Soltones, who struggled with five points in their past game against Sta. Lucia, had 13 hits and as many as excellent receptions while Malabanan added 12 markers and had 10 digs. Galang dropped 18 points built on 16 spikes and a pair of aces laced with 10 excellent receptions while Baron unloaded eight kills, five blocks and three aces for 16 points as F2 Logistics improved to 7-2 win-loss record to claim the solo second spot. Cha Cruz-Behag was also instrumental with 12 points and 23 digs while Aby Maraño added 10 markers for F2 Logistics, which finished the job in just one hour and 36 minutes. Fajardo made 45 excellent sets as their team continued to miss Kianna Dy for the second straight game due to knee soreness and the wake of her grandmother in Davao. “I’m happy even we lost the second set because somehow I saw the determination of my players to win the game,” F2 Logistics head coach Ramil de Jesus said. “Even we’re not complete, they were composed.” The Cargo Movers fought back from 17-24 deficit in the second set and trimmed it down to 23-24. But Mylene Paat nailed a kill to end the frame and level the match to one-set apiece before the Cargo Movers recovered their groove en route to the victory. Cignal managed to keep F2 Logistics within striking distance in all departments as it had a 12-10 advantage in blocking, trailed only three in attacking, 42-45 and had 10 team aces each. The Cargo Movers also played more fluid with only 14 errors while the HD Spikers committed 33 miscues. Paat had 18 points while Rachel Anne Daquis delivered 15 hits, including 15 excellent receptions, for the HD Spikers, who dropped to a 4-5 card......»»

Jayson Tatum scores 24 points, Celtics edge Knicks 103-101

By BRIAN MAHONEY,  AP Basketball Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Jayson Tatum had 24 points and 14 rebounds, and the Boston Celtics withstood his careless foul with 1.9 seconds left to beat the New York Knicks 103-101 on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time). Tatum had just given the Celtics a three-point lead with two free throws with 7.9 seconds left and the Knicks called their final timeout. They had trouble getting the ball inbounded from the sideline, and Knicks guard Trey Burke had to race into the backcourt to retrieve it as the clocked ran down. He pulled up for a 3-pointer from well beyond the arc and Tatum jumped to contest it, fouling Burke for three free throws that could have tied it. But he missed the first and the Knicks couldn't grab the rebound when he intentionally missed the third. Kyrie Irving and Marcus Morris each added 16 points for the Celtics, who rebounded from their loss in Toronto on Friday night. They won despite giving Gordon Hayward a night off to rest his surgically repaired left ankle. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 24 points for the Knicks, who lost rookie Kevin Knox to a sprained left ankle in the first quarter. Enes Kanter had 17 points and 15 rebounds before fouling out of their second two-point loss in two nights. The Celtics are considered one of the Eastern Conference favorites but coach Brad Stevens said the Raptors were clearly better now and Boston needed to improve after Toronto's 113-101 victory Friday night. On Saturday night, they were just good enough to beat the rebuilding Knicks. The Celtics looked sharp early in racing to a 26-10 lead Saturday and still had a double-digit cushion midway through the second quarter before Damyean Dotson's second straight 3-pointer trimmed it to 50-48 by halftime. Boston seemed to be regaining control early in the fourth quarter but again the Knicks came back, tying it at 89 on consecutive 3-pointers by Hardaway. But Irving had five points and an assist in a 7-0 burst that put the Celtics on top again and they held on from there, with Tatum hitting a tough turnaround jumper with 21 seconds left and missing a dunk earlier in the possession. TIP-INS Celtics: Aron Baynes got the start with Hayward out and scored 10 points. But he played only 12 minutes before leaving with a sore right hamstring. ... Jaylen Brown was only 2 for 9, finishing with seven points. Knicks: Coach David Fizdale said G Courtney Lee would see specialists Monday after experiencing neck spasms that went down into his chest. Lee was sidelined throughout the preseason by a neck injury. ... Kanter became the first Knick since Zach Randolph (2007-08) to start the season with three straight double-doubles. KNOX KNOCKED OUT Knox was driving for a layup on a fast break when his ankle appeared to roll badly as he was fouled by Terry Rozier III. Knox stayed on the court briefly, appearing in pain, then was carried off by a pair of teammates. Because the No. 9 pick wasn't able to shoot the free throws, he was, by rule, forced to miss the remainder of the game. The Knicks said X-rays on his ankle were negative. HAYWARD'S HEALTH Celtics coach Brad Stevens said there wasn't a plan to rest Hayward on back-to-backs, but his minutes are being watched and he's being evaluated on a game-by-game basis. He said Hayward, who broke his ankle last year in the season opener, was just experiencing general soreness Saturday and didn't think it was anything overly concerning. UP NEXT Celtics: Host Orlando on Monday night. Knicks: Visit Milwaukee on Monday night......»»

PVL: Lady Eagles weather Lady Falcons upset scare for back-to-back wins

Ateneo-Motolite survived an upset scare from a very game Adamson-Akari, 17-25, 25-23, 25-20, 21-25, 15-12, on Sunday to score back-to-back wins in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Kat Tolentino stepped up big time in the deciding set, scoring six points in the frame to help the Lady Eagles improve to 4-1 win-loss record at second spot behind unbeaten BanKo (5-0). Tolentino scattered 28 points off 20 spikes, five kill blocks and three service aces while Jules Samonte added 11 markers off the bench for Ateneo-Motolite. Maddie Madayag and Ponggay Gaston chipped in nine points each for the Lady Eagles' second win in back-to-back weekend schedule after taking down Iriga-Navy in straight sets Saturday.   The incoming third year hitter scored five of Ateneo-Motolite's first nine points as the Lady Eagles built a 9-3 advantage. Behind Bernadette Flora and Ceasa Pinar's heroics, Adamson-Akari closed the gap, 9-8.  Ateneo-Motolite again went ahead, 13-11, before Krich Macaslang scored a hit to push the Lady Falcons within one, 13-12. Tolentino put the Lady Eagles at match point before Vanessa Gandler sealed the win with a cross court hit.    “Every game this is our problem because siguro new system, we always start slow for the past few games we really start slow and we try to fix that problem,” said Ateneo-Motolite head coach Oliver Almadro, who commended the Lady Falcons’ floor defense. “I thank the Lord that we won today, we won yesterday,” he added. “But I’m not happy with what we’ve shown today. It’s because, I guess, we’re getting used to playing pa sa back-to-back (schedule) so siguro being a student and an athlete hindi pa sanay doon sa big games na magkasunod. But we have to be used to it and this is a learning experience for us and we really just have to maximize our strength and really believing kung ano ang ginagawa namin.” The Lady Falcons, who showed superb floor defense but were plagued with terrible errors, dropped their sixth game in as many outings tied with the Lady Oragons. Adamson was in control of the second set, 10-5, but committed 11 of the frame's 13 errors the rest of the way as the Lady Falcons giave Ateneo-Motolite a chance to steal the set and tie the match.  The Lady Eagles again came back from a 14-15 deficit with a 10-4 run capped by an attack error by Flora for a 24-19 lead. Ateneo-Motolite committed a net touch in the next play before Adamson-Akari surrendered the set on another miscue by Flora.         Flora finished with 25 points on 20 kills, three kill blocks and a pair of aces while adding 24 digs and eight excellent receptions. Chiara Permentilla and Gracelchen Ave scored 15 and 12 markers, respectively, for Adamson.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles      .....»»
