PBA: Paul Lee bags Player of the Week honors

Paul Lee stood tall in Magnolia's back-to-back wins over Columbian Dyip and Meralco on the way to capturing the PBA Press Corps Player of the Week award for the period of May 14-20. Nicknamed the “Leethal Weapon”, the 29-year-old Magnolia combo guard posted averages of 18.5 points, 7 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 steal in the Pambansang Manok’s two-win stretch this past week as they head to the PBA All-Star break in high spirits. Magnolia, which now totes a 3-1 card overall for solo fourth spot, hammered the hapless Columbian side, 126-101 last Wednesday as the “Angas ng Tondo” finished with 17 points, eight assists and two rebounds, while knocking down three triples. Lee then, upped the ante of his game by banging in 20 points, built around four three-point shots, issued six assists and added three boards as Magnolia nosed out Meralco, 81-79.  Import Vernon Macklin, who played his farewell game before heading to China, knocked down the game-winning foul shots in the dying seconds for Magnolia. The sweet-shooting Lee beat Magnolia teammate Mark Barroca, last week’s Player of the Week Vic Manuel of Alaska, TNT guard Ryan Reyes, Rain or Shine’s Chris Tiu and Phoenix gunners Jeff Chan and Matthew Wright for the weekly citation. Magnolia heads to the annual PBA showcase with three straight wins and will be back for action on June 2 when it faces league-leader Rain or Shine (5-1) at the Smart Araneta Coliseum......»»

PBA: Magnolia s frontline takes another hit with Sangalang injury

Magnolia is taking another hit in its frontline. With Marc Pingris practically out for the season with an ACL tear, Ian Sangalang is the latest to get bitten by the injury bug as the top forward is now dealing with an injury on his right wrist. Sangalang hurt his non-shooting hand in the first half of Friday's game against Meralco, an 81-79 win for the Hotshots. "Di ko talaga mailaro. Masakit," Sangalang said. "Feeling ko sumabit, di ko alam kung kanino. May nag-pop sa loob, parang may tumunog. Tapos na-feel ko talaga na masakit, mga ilang segunod di ko na maigalaw," he added. Ian had his hand heavily taped as the game went on. Sangalang and the Hotshots are now waiting official word regarding the severity of the injury. Hopefully, it's nothing serious. "Meron nagsabi na fracture daw pero ipapax-ray namin to confirm," he said. "Sana nothing serious naman. Ganun talaga, hindi maiiwasan. Basketball yan. Sana maging okay agad," Sangalang added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Black still high on Onuaku despite import missing 16 free throws

Arinze Onuaku scored 23 points against Magnolia Friday but safe to say the hulking reinforcement didn't exactly have a great night. For one, the Bolts lost to the Hotshots, 79-81. A win would have put them in a tie for first heading into the All-Star break but instead, they hold a 3-2 record. Second, the former Best Import missed 16 free throws. Onuaku shot a horrible 5-of-21 from the line and every miss allowed Magnolia to stay in the game. The Hotshots eventually stole the win in the end after import Vernon Macklin drilled two pressure-packed free throws in the final three seconds. Onuaku politely declined to be interviewed following the loss but head coach Norman Black conceded that the missed free throws --- 16 of them --- were the "sour aspect" of the game vs. Magnolia. "Well tonight he had a lot of opportunities to separate us in the game. If he had made a couple of those foul shots, obviously we could've pulled away," Black said. "But everytime he got the ball offensively they started fouling him on purpose. In that situation you just have to step up and make them," he added. Still, Black believes in his import. While the missed free throw and the loss are tough, the veteran mentor is ready to move on to the next one. "But, obviously, he gives us a lot of other things on the court to help us win games," he said. "That was a sour aspect of the game tonight [missed free throws], but that's part of it. You just have to live with it and move on," Black added.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Macklin lifts Magnolia past Meralco in farewell game

Vernon Macklin couldn't have written a better script for his farewell game for Magnolia in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup. Macklin sank the game-winning free throws with 3.1 seconds left to lift the Hotshots over the Meralco Bolts, 81-79, Friday night at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

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.....»»
