Blazers beat Heat 115-99 for 10th straight victory

By Erik Garcia Gundersen, Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Damian Lillard had 32 points and 10 assists, and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Miami Heat 115-99 on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) for their 10th straight victory. Jusuf Nurkic added 27 points and 16 rebounds for the Blazers, who have the longest current winning streak in the NBA and a two-game lead over Oklahoma City for the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference. The Heat used an 18-2 run to start the fourth quarter to trim a 19-point deficit to three, but Lillard took charge for the Blazers, just as he has throughout the winning streak. The All-Star guard broke Portland's drought of over five minutes with a three-pointer midway through the period to put Portland back in front by six, and the Blazers stayed safely ahead from there. Lillard scored 21 points after halftime. He leads the league in second-half scoring. Goran Dragic scored 23 points for the Heat, who were without two key players in starting center Hassan Whiteside and sixth man Dwyane Wade. The Blazers closed the first quarter on a 14-4 lead to take a 34-25 lead, capped by a buzzer-beating three-pointer from rookie Zach Collins. Another three-pointer by Collins with 7:03 left in the second quarter put Portland up 45-33, forcing the Heat to call time. TIP-INS Heat: Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) was the deadline for the Heat to use a $5.5 million trade exception they were granted after shooting guard Dion Waiters underwent season-ending surgery on his ankle. The Heat would have had to release a player already on their roster to open up a roster spot to use the sizable exception. Trail Blazers: Lillard came in averaging nearly 33 points during the streak, which includes two victories over the NBA champion Golden State Warriors. "I think this might be the best level that he's played," coach Terry Stotts said. "I thought what he did last year after the All-Star break was amazing. He carried us to the playoffs last year, showing great leadership and a high quality of play. It might be better this year, but we still have 16 games to go." UP NEXT Heat: Miami continues its three-game road trip in Sacramento on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time). Trail Blazers: Welcome LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday (Friday, PHL time).  .....»»

New PH words are candidates for Oxford dictionary

For the first time ever, the folks at Oxford English Dictionary allowed a layman (yours truly) to look at how they determine new additions to the English lexicon.   While visiting the UK I was introduced to OED's chief lexicographer, Sir Knute Toomey who leads a global research team that meticulously searches for emerging new words and expressions that should belong in the distinguished Oxford dictionary.   Sir Knute told me he has been immersing himself in Philippine social media.

Lillard leads Trail Blazers past Pacers

PORTLAND, Ore. --- Portland's home court was once one of the NBA's toughest for visitors --- but was a source of frustration for the Trail Blazers earlier this season.

Davis returns, leads Pelicans past Blazers, 119-113

NEW ORLEANS --- Anthony Davis scored 36 points in his return from a right ankle sprain, and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Portland Trail Blazers 119-113 on Friday night. Davis did not appear at all bothered by the injury that kept him out of Wednesday night's narrow loss in Memphis, scoring on everything from explosive dribble drives to soaring dunks. DeMarcus Cousins had 24 points and 19 rebounds, and Jrue Holiday scored 25 points for New Orleans, which hit the halfway point of the regular season one game above .500 and in the Western Conference playoff picture, but still in need of more consistency and less sloppiness.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Maurice Harkless completed a go-ahead three-point play with 21.4 seconds remaining and the Portland Trail Blazers ended a three-game losing streak by beating the Los Angeles Lakers 95-92 on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time).

Portland used a 10-2 run over the final 1:38 of the third quarter to tie the game. Napier hit a three-pointer with 4.5 seconds left to make it 70-all and missed a shot at the buzzer after stealing the ball from Julius Randle. Both offenses perked up in the second quarter, with the Blazers shooting 52.2 percent (12-for-23) and the Lakers not far behind at 47.6 percent (10-of-21). The Lakers held a 49-44 lead at halftime despite McCollum and Napier combining for 17 points in the second after making all seven shots from the field. Randle had just checked into the game when he inadvertently backhanded Jusuf Nurkic in the face on a layup. Nurkic was down on the court for several minutes holding his face. Nurkic had four points, two rebounds and one assist before exiting, but did not score again despite returning late in the second quarter.

Hood scores 18, Jazz beat Sydney Kings 108-83

em>By Kareem Copeland, Associated Press /em> SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Rodney Hood scored 18 points as the Utah Jazz defeated the Sydney Kings 108-83 in their preseason opener Monday. Sydney was visiting from Australia’s National Basketball League in the first game between the two leagues in an NBA preseason game. The Jazz began a new era for the franchise without All-Star Gordon Hayward, who spent his first seven seasons with the team. Hayward signed with Boston as a free agent. Second leading-scorer George Hill went to Sacramento as a free agent. Newly acquired Ricky Rubio and Joe Ingles started in place of the pair alongside second-team All-NBA center Rudy Gobert, Hood and Derrick Favors. Gobert finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds. Hood knocked down four 3-pointers as he attempts to pick up the scoring slack left by Hayward. “Just coming in and being aggressive,” Hood said. “My teammates are constantly preaching that to me. We’re going to go as Ricky goes, and we’ve got to be open for him. We’ve got to cut hard for him. We’ve got to get to open spots.” Former Kansas star Perry Ellis scored a game-high 19 for Sydney while teammates Kevin Lisch and Jason Cadee added 13 apiece. The Jazz led by 19 at the end of the first quarter and never trailed. Sydney did cut the lead to single digits much of the second quarter, to the chagrin of Jazz coach Quin Snyder. “Awful,” Snyder said about the second-quarter defense. “It’s like anything, even something you think you can be good at, if you’re not attentive to it and you don’t honor it, you won’t be good at it. They got a couple open looks that we didn’t contest and they made them. And they got a couple offensive rebounds ... and suddenly they got confidence. Pretty soon they’re hitting some tougher shots.” strong>TIP-INS /strong> em> strong>Kings: /strong> /em> Sydney coach Andrew Gaze faced Snyder when Gaze played for Seton Hall and Snyder was at Duke. ...

Height, speed are keys for Kai Sotto and Batang Gilas in FIBA Asian Championships

The Philippine youth team bannered by promising big man Kai Sotto,will bank on height and speed for its coming campaign in the FIBA U16 Asian Championships in Foshan, China from April 2-8. The 15-year-old Sotto, who recently led Ateneo to the UAAP juniors basketball championship, serves as the centerpiece of the 12-man team of coach Michael Oliver which also counts on Rafael Go, Raven Cortez, McLaude Guadana, Terrence Fortea, Recaredo Christian Calimag, Rence Padrigao,, and Shaun Geofrrey Chiu – all of whom suited up for the Batang Gilas squad that won the Southeast Asian Basketball Association (SEABA) juniors championship held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last year. Newcomers include Jerick Kyle Bautista, Joshua Rafael Lazaro, Yukien Andrada, and King Balaga. “We have a combination of height and speed. At least hindi na tayo kawawa sa ilalim unlike before. Hindi na tayo undersized sa mga kalaban natin,” said Oliver. Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) executive director Sonny Barrios, who, was with Oliver and Batang Gilas co-team manager Andrew Teh and Wilbert Loa in Tuesday’s Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum at the Tapa King Restaurant at the Farmers Center in Cubao, said seven Batang Gilas players are above six feet, including Sotto who stands 7-foot-1, Chiu, who is 6-foot-8, and Cortez at 6-foot-7. Chiu and McLaude joined the team together with deputy coach MC Abolucion in the session presented by San Miguel Corp., Tapa King, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. The country is bracketed in Group B with powerhouse Australia and Malaysia. The host country leads Group A together with New Zealand and Hong Kong, Group C will have Iran, Chinese Taipei, and Macau, while Group D is composed of Korea, Japan, Lebanon, and India. In all, 13 countries are seeing action in the week-long event. Barrios said the meet was supposed to be held last year shortly after the SEABA meet, but had to be moved to this year as FIBA failed to find a willing host. The top four countries to finish in the meet will represent Asia to the FIBA U17 Basketball World Cup in Argentina next year. As per tournament format, the best placed team in each group will qualify directly to the knockout stage starting with the quarterfinals. The second and third place teams will proceed to the playoff round. It won’t be easy, according to Oliver, since the team didn’t get to practice with a full roster until after the end of the UAAP season. “Naghahabol talaga kami sa training. Daily practices kami as much as possible,” said the Batang Gilas coach......»»

High school prospects keep coming to Aldin Ayo’s UST

University of Sto. Tomas is not yet done stocking up on equipment for its grand rebuild. The Growling Tigers have also welcomed into their fold a former Mythical selection from Mapua University in Sherwin Concepcion, a workhorse from La Salle Greenhills in Joshua Marcos, and a couple of solid guards from Jose Rizal University in Kobe Caballero and Toby Agustin. This, just a few weeks after securing the services of 2018 UAAP Juniors MVP CJ Cansino and 2015 NCAA Juniors MVP Mike Enriquez. All of those new faces are bound to give UST a breath of fresh air in its first year under Aldin Ayo. Of the newest recruits, Concepcion is the most promising, being a mobile big man who can stretch the floor. The six-foot-three forward was the centerpiece in the early going of the Red Robins’ ascent. In his last season there, he had per game counts of 11.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 1.5 assists. However, according to a source, Concepcion will have to get his papers in order first as he is yet to complete high school. If all goes well for him, he will bolster a frontline that boasts of Steve Akomo, Henric Caunan, and Joco Macasaet. Also in the mix there will be Marcos, who served as the glue guy in the Junior Blazers’ first-ever championship by averaging 11.2 points, seven rebounds, 1.4 blocks, and 1.1 assists. The six-foot wing is just the type of player Ayo wants – tireless and relentless. Meanwhile, Caballero and Agustin have a good shot at breaking through Espana’s guard rotation that includes Cansino, Enriquez, Marvin Lee, Jordan Sta. Ana, and the returning Renzo Subido. Agustin was the leading scorer for the Light Bombers with 16.3 points per game while Agustin was not that far behind in norming 14.3 markers of his own. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Portland wins 12th straight with 100-87 victory over Detroit

By Anne M. Peterson, Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) —Damian Lillard had 24 points, eight assists and seven rebounds, and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Detroit Pistons 100-87 on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time) for their 12th straight victory. CJ McCollum added 16 points for the Blazers, who have the longest current winning streak in the league. It's the longest streak for the franchise since it also won 12 in a row in 2002. Portland (43-26) also earned its season-best ninth straight home win -- a timely streak as it tries to hold on to third place in the Western Conference standings. While the Blazers are soaring, the Pistons are struggling. Andre Drummond had 18 points and 22 rebounds in Detroit's 12th consecutive road loss. Blake Griffin had 15 points. The Pistons (30-39) have dropped eight of 10 overall, and currently sit in ninth place in the East. The Pistons trailed by as many as 19 points in the third quarter, but they closed to 84-74 on Stanley Johnson's dunk with 8:18 left. Evan Turner responded with a jumper for the Blazers. After Luke Kennard was whistled for a technical foul, Lillard made a foul shot and McCollum converted a layup to make it 89-74 with 6:19 remaining. Kennard was a game-time decision with a tight hamstring, but he finished with 12 points. Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic got two quick fouls within the first four minutes of the game, so he was replaced by Meyers Leonard. Portland went up 20-9 early. The Blazers led 60-45 at the break. Lillard led all scorers with 12 points. After extending the lead in the third quarter, Lillard went to the bench to start the fourth and it looked as if he might be done for the night. But he returned when Detroit got within 10 points. TIP-INS Pistons: It was the third of a six-game road trip. ... Forward/Center Eric Moreland played at Oregon State. ... Reggie Jackson, who has missed 35 games with a right ankle sprain, participated in a 3-on-3 optional practice earlier this week. Trail Blazers: Terry Stotts tied Nate McMillan for third-most victories as a Blazers coach. Stotts is 266-213. ... The Blazers had lost five straight to the Pistons. ... All five of Portland's starters scored in double figures. UP NEXT The Pistons visit the Sacramento Kings on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). The Trail Blazers visit the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday (Monday, PHL time)......»»
