Nabong gets biggest fine for GlobalPort-Rain or Shine melee

The PBA on Thursday dropped the punishments to those involved in the melee between Rain or Shine and Globalport that saw three ejections and a bloodied Chris Tiu. Globalport center Kelly Nabong received the worst of sanctions as the league slapped him with a P30,000 fine--P20,000 for a flagrant foul 2 and P10,000 for displaying the middle finger. Nabong was ejected with 3:40 left in the Elasto Painters' 96-90 win on May 20 at Smart Araneta Coliseum after getting shoving Rain or Shine guard Maverick Ahanmisi, who was also slapped with a P15,000 fine after pushing down Sean Anthony. The scuffle began when Rain or Shine center Beau Belga and Globalport forward Moala Tautuaa dov...Keep on reading: Nabong gets biggest fine for GlobalPort-Rain or Shine melee.....»»

After topsy-turvy elims, PBA quarterfinals match ups are set

  A topsy-turvy elimination round in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup has paved the way for a potentially thrilling quarterfinals, which fires off on Monday. On Saturday, victories by TNT and Magnolia overset the quarterfinals match-ups. Rain or Shine, one of the biggest revelations this conference, emerged as the No. 1 team after finishing the eliminations with a 9-2 record. The reward for the Elasto Painters, however, is a date with the eighth-seeded GlobalPort Batang Pier and their explosive point guard Stanley Pringle, who had a 50-point outing this conference. Fortunately for Rain or Shine and No. 2 Alaska, which faces No. 7 Magnolia, both will have a twice-to...Keep on reading: After topsy-turvy elims, PBA quarterfinals match ups are set.....»»

Nabong on ejection: ‘I’m here to protect my players’

GlobalPort big man Kelly Nabong insisted he was neither the instigator nor was he trying to pick up fights during their matchup against Rain or Shine in the PBA Commissioner's Cup. The 6-foot-6 Nabong was ejected with 3:20 left in a heated game on Sunday that ended in a Batang Pier loss to the Elasto Painters at Smart Araneta Coliseum. "I wasn't even in the scuffle, it's more of protection," said Nabong. "My teammates were in the ground trying to get a jump ball, and they were trying to get up and a little point guard pushed my player back to the ground. As a big man, I'm trying to protect my players." "I'm not here to start fights, I'm here to end them and protect my player...Keep on reading: Nabong on ejection: ‘I’m here to protect my players’.....»»

Fajardo to receive fourth straight PSA Mr. Basketball award

June Mar Fajardo is expected to cast a giant shadow over next week’s staging of the SMC-PSA (Philippine Sportswriters Association) Awards Night at the Maynila Hall of the Manila Hotel. The San Miguel big man will be bestowed the Mighty Sports Mr. Basketball award during the Feb. 27 rites presented by MILO and Cignal TV for another dominant PBA season last year which saw the 6-foot-10 Cebuano pride romp off with an unprecedented fourth straight MVP trophy.  Fajardo became the first-ever player to win the league’s highest individual award four consecutive seasons - and only the third in history to emerge a four-time MVP after legends Ramon Fernandez and Alvin Patrimonio. This will also be the fourth straight time the oldest media organization in the country is honoring the 28-year-old center for excellence in basketball. Last year, Fajardo further established his claim as the biggest name in Philippine basketball today after steering the Beermen to a record-tying three straight Philippine Cup championships that allowed the fable franchise to become only the second team in PBA annals to bring home the June Bernardino Perpetual trophy after TnT Katropa.  The former no. 1 pick out of University of Cebu also proved his worth by leading Gilas Pilipinas to a sweep of the Southeast Asian Basketball Association (SEABA) Championship, and then suited up for the national team in its FIBA Asia Cup campaign despite suffering a strained calf muscle prior to the ballclub’s departure for Beirut, Lebanon. Previous players hailed as Mr. Basketball include Calvin Abueva and Terrence Romeo.  Volleyball players Dawn Macandili and Marck Espejo as well as well as golfer Clyde Mondilla are also recipients of special awards during the affair that has the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) as major sponsor and backers in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), Mighty Sports, Globalport, Rain or Shine, and Smart.  Macandili, adjudged second Best Libero during the 2017 Asian Women’s Volleyball Championships here, will be handed the Ms. Volleyball title, while Espejo is Mr. Volleyball on account of him winning a fourth UAAP MVP trophy after steering Ateneo to a third straight championship.  For topping the Philippine Golf Tour Order of Merit (OOM), Mondilla is Mr. Golf of the year. The four special awardees are part of the total 105 personalities and entities which make up the season’s honor roll list, topped by PSA-Tapa King Athlete of the Year Jerwin Ancajas, Carlo Biado, and Krizziah Lyn Tabora. Agriculture Secretary Manny Pinol, a former sportswriter, columnist, and boxing analyst, will be the special guest of honor of this year’s event......»»

Global stifles Rain or Shine to score first win of the season

In a low-scoring affair, it was one player's offense that stood out the most. Stanley Pringle's early-season tear continued Friday at the MOA Arena, leading the Globaport Batang Pier to a 78-70 win over Rain or Shine in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup. Pringle fired 29 points, 20 in the first half, to help the Batang Pier scored their first win of the season against two defeats. Losing an early 14-point lead, Globaport's defense held strong in the fourth, limiting the Elasto Painters to only 14 points to hold on for the win. "Lesson learned yung last two games namin," head coach Pido Jarencio said. "We're giving 109 points per game, pinagusapan namin ng nga players na we have to consider na dumepensa kami and tonight we played good defense," he added. Global got off to a fast start behind Pringle, leadin 19-5 in the first quarter before Rain or Shine settled down and made it a game. The Elasto Painter would take over in the second quarter but the Batang Pier recovered quickly, unloading an 8-0 run to take a 38-33 lead and went to on control the game throughout. After Pringle, Kelly Nabong added 12 points and 13 rebounds for Globalport while Bradwyn Guinto was good for 10 points and nine boards. ROS, who now lost back-to-back games for a 1-2 mark, got 15 points and eight rebounds from Gabe Norwood and another 13 from Mark Borboran.   The Scores: GLOBALPORT 78 - Pringle 29, Nabong 12, Guinto 10, Grey 8, Sargent 8, Gabayni 4, Anthony 3, Flores 2, Elorde 2, Arana 0, Juico 0, Taha 0. RAIN OR SHINE 70 - Norwood 15, Borboran 13, Ahanmisi 10, Belga 8, Nambatac 6, Yap 5, Ponferrada 3, Daquioag 3, Trollano 3, Almazan 2, Maiquez 2,  Quarters: 19-18, 41-35, 58-56, 78-70.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA Season 43 preview: The Pack

Forget the PBA impasse for a second. Seriously, forget it. Why? There are basketball games to be played. That's right, the PBA will push through with the opening of the 43rd season as originally scheduled and before we start what appears to be another long, exciting, stressful (for the good reasons, of course), and eventful year of basketball, let's look at all 12 teams first. We start with "The Pack" in this preview. Special thanks to Alaska's coach Alex Compton for this idea. Okay here we go.   Rain or Shine Elasto Painters PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Quarterfinals Commissioner's Cup - Quarterfinals Governors' Cup - Quarterfinals PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Gabe Norwood Ed Daquioag Jericho Cruz Dexter Maiquez Maverick Ahanmisi Jewel Ponferrada Mark Borboran Chris Tiu James Yap Don Trollano Raymond Almazan Rey Nambatac Beau Belga Ronnie Matias Jeremy King Injured/Reserve: Jay Washington Head coach: Caloy Garcia The Elasto Painters, after losing so many key peices from their championship team in the previous offseason, didn't exactly have a bad year in 2017. ROS made it to the playoffs in each of the three conferences. However, the Painters failed to advance to the semifinals in all three as well. Rain or Shine is a champion team but the transition period for this franchise might be extended unless they can actually sustain their strong starts to conferences.   NLEX Road Warriors PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Missed playoffs Commissioner's Cup - Missed playoffs Governors' Cup - Quarterfinals PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Emman Monfort Michael Miranda Juami Tiongson Jansen Rios Kevin Alas Cyrus Baguio Alex Mallari Larry Fonacier Kiefer Ravena Raul Soyud Kenneth Ighalo Rabeh Al-Hussaini Alfonso Gotladera JR Quinahan Asi Taulava Injured/Reserve: Ronjay Buenafe Head coach: Yeng Guiao It took them a while but the Road Warriors finally figured things out under coach Yeng Guiao. And now with a new star at poing guard plus a another offseason of playing together, this season feels like the actual start of the Yeng Guiao era in NLEX. The Road Warriors have a nice mix of young and veteran talent and they have a champion coach at the helm. The potential is there to make noise in the playoffs.   Phoenix Fuel Masters PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Quarterfinals Commissioner's Cup - Quarterfinals Governors' Cup - Missed playoffs PBA Season 43 opening day line up: LA Revilla Jason Perkins Gelo Alolino JC Intal Joseph Eriobu Justin Chua Marvin Hayes Jeff Chan Doug Kramer Jam Cortez Karl Dehesa Rey Guevarra William Wilson RJ Jazul Matthew Wright Head coach: Louie Alas Phoenix is in it to win it. The Fuel Masters missed the playoffs once for the first time in four conferences and the team literally changed almost their entire coaching staff. Coach Louie Alas will have an interesting squad to work with in his debut season with the team. If Phoenix can avoid a major slide similar to what happened in the 2017 Governors' Cup, expect the Fuel Masters to be featured in the playoff race.   KIA Picanto PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Missed playoffs Commissioner's Cup - Missed playoffs Governors' Cup - Missed playoffs PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Reden Celda Jackson Corpuz JR Reyes Jon Gabriel Philip Paniamogan Rashawn McCarthy Prince Caperal Eric Camson Jan Jamon Pedrito Galanza Roldan Sara Glenn Khobuntin Mark Yee Dylan Ababou Ronald Tubid Head coach: Chris Gavina Kia's unconventional ways will be tested this season. After basically trading away Christian Standhardinger, people will most certainly watch the Picanto to lose. But you never know with this team, they have a brilliant coach and maybe Kia manages to pull off an upset or two this season. Maybe it's not so bad after all. We'll see.   Meralco Bolts PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Missed playoffs Commissioner's Cup - Quarterfinals Governors' Cup - Finals PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Bryan Faundo Mike Tolomia Cliff Hodge Nico Salva Baser Amer Chris Newsome KG Canaleta Garvo Lanete Joseph Sedurifa Anjo Caram Jason Ballesteros Jared Dillinger Reynel Hugnatan Ranidel De Ocampo Mac Baracael Injured/Reserve: Ken Bono Head coach: Norman Black For the past two seasons, Meralco has not performed well in the Philippine Cup. Without an import, the Bolts just shut down for some reason. However, the team can build on a more mature set of locals this time around to make some noise in the All-Filipino. And you already know coach Norman Black is not allowing another All-Filipino collapse from his team.   Blackwater Elite PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Missed playoffs Commissioner's Cup - Missed playoffs Governors' Cup - Quarterfinals PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Mike Cortez Mike Digregorio Ael Banal Roi Sumang JP Erram Mark Cruz John Pinto Mac Belo James Sena Renz Palma Chris Javier Allein Maliksi Dave Marcelo Raymar Jose Kyle Neypes Head coach: Leo Isaac Blackwater has an interesting team. Just looking at their line up from top to bottom, the Elite have all the tools to make a playoff runs this season. Starting with the All-Filipino, Blackwater can finish the job that they failed to do last season. People forget that the Elite, despite missing the playoffs, had a pretty good Philippine Cup last year.   Globalport Batang Pier PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Quarterfinals Commissioner's Cup - Quarterfinals Governors' Cup - Missed playoffs PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Yousef Taha Julian Sargent Stanley Pringle Terrence Romeo Nico Elorde Sean Anthony Micahel Juico Jonathan Gray Ryan Arana Kelly Nabong Lervin Flores Joseph Gabayni Bradwyn Guinto Injured/Reserve: Arnold Van Opstal Head coach: Pido Jarencio Regardless if its Pido Jarencio or Franz Pumaren coaching this team, things will be hard for Globalport if Terrence Romeo continues to miss time. But looking at it from another angle, maybe Stanley Pringle shows us another level to his game and takes the Batang Pier to new heights. However, Globalport fans would feel more comfortable if the Bro recovers according to schedule and makes his debut sooner rather than later.   Alaska Aces PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Quarterfinals Commissioner's Cup - Missed playoffs Governors' Cup - Missed playoffs PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Simon Enciso Chris Banchero Sonny Thoss Calvin Abueva Marion Magat Jake Pascual Jeron Teng Chris Exciminiano Carl Bryan Cruz Abel Galiguez Davon Potts Jvee Casio Kevin Racal Vic Manuel Injured/Reserve: Noy Baclao Head coach: Alex Compton It possibly can't get any worse for Alaska this season. After a down year, the Aces are poised for a bounce back season. If Alaska can re-learn how to finish games, the team can absolutely regain its lofty standing on top of the league. The pieces are there, it's amazing how the Aces lost so many games last season. It cannot get any worse.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Brownlee, Ginebra turn lights off on Meralco anew

Justin Brownlee continues to be a thorn on the side of Meralco, even now in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Stuffing the stat sheet with 36 points, nine rebounds, six assists, and three steals, Brownlee led Ginebra’s super surge in the third quarter to run away from the Bolts, 104-90, on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum. Just like he has been in the last two Finals of the Governor’s Cup, the Gin Kings’ American reinforcement was an unsolvable riddle for Meralco. He definitely wasn’t working alone, though, as the crowd darlings had five different players contributing in an 18-2 run bridging the second and third quarters that increased a one-point lead to a 71-56 advantage. “We were able to come out and throw our punch in the third quarter,” a much more gleeful than usual head coach Tim Cone said. Of course, the Bolts didn’t quit and back-to-back threes from Baser Amer and Chris Newsome pulled them to just within 81-87 inside the last five minutes. Yet again, however, Brownlee had the answer for Ginebra and his assist to an LA Tenorio triple followed by a dunk from a Tenorio dish re-established a 92-81 edge for them. “It really came down to that LA shot in the corner. We were on our heels until that big shot,” Cone said. That double-digit lead would stay the rest of the way, cementing the crowd darlings’ sweep of the best-of-three quarterfinals against Meralco. In the end, Tenorio had 11 points and five assists to his name while Greg Slaughter also added a 14-point, 11-rebound double-double. The Gin Kings now await the winner in the do-or-die matchup between Rain or Shine and Globalport on Thursday. For the Bolts, Arinze Onuaku was atop the scoring column with 21 points and 13 rebounds. Newsome and Amer chipped in 17 and 11 points, respectively, in the losing effort.

PBA: Gutsy Grey rescues Globalport from elimination in Commissioner’s Cup

With Ed Daqioag all over him, Jonathan Grey launched the shot that would end or extend Globalport’s campaign in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Grey’s corner triple found the bottom of the net and proved to be the difference for the Batang Pier who rallied from as much as 12 points down to stun top-seeded Rain or Shine, 114-113, on Tuesday at the Araneta Coliseum. The second-year swingman wound up with a conference-high 22 points, the last three of which rescued his team from elimination. Eighth-seeded Globalport found itself chasing down the Elasto Painters for majority of the matchup. Rain or Shine even had a 12-point lead at the midway mark of the third quarter and was still ahead, 112-110, inside the last two minutes. Grey and Maverick Ahanmisi then traded splits from the stripe to put the score at 113-111 in favor of E-Painters with 16.2 ticks to go on the clock. Off a timeout, head coach Pido Jarencio put the ball, and his trust, on his starting guard who did nothing but come through. Rain or Shine still had 11.2 seconds to make something happen, but reinforcement Reggie Johnson bobbled the inbound pass from Chris Tiu and both of Johnson and Ahanmisi missed their game-tying tries. When the buzzer sounded, Jarencio and his wards were celebrating a stunning upset of the top seed that forces a do-or-die matchup for a semifinals spot on Thursday. Grey had the heroics, but Malcolm White showed the way for the Batang Pier all game long and totalled 28 points and 16 rebounds. Stanley Pringle was also all over the court and finished with 21 markers, nine boards, and nine assists. For the Elasto Painters, Johnson topped the scoring column with 24 points on top of 15 rebounds and six assists. Five other teammates were also in double-digits, including Raymond Almazan who had his own 17-point, 11-rebound double-double. Without an answer for Grey’s heroics, though, they have just lost their twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals.

PBA: Reggie repeats, he wants that title for ROS

Reggie Johnson has said it before, he wants a title for Rain or Shine. And after the Elasto Painters took the no. 1 seed in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup, Johnson is one step closer to fulfilling his wish. [Related: PBA: Johnson wants that title for Rain or Shine] "Everywhere I've been, I was able to be a winner. Everywhere I played professionally, I won a championship," Johnson said. "That's my biggest thing, as far as the imports are concerned, lead my team the furthest," he added. With ROS at no. 1, it's not hard to imagine that Johnson is also at the top of the Best Import race considering he's one of the few that started the tournament with his original team. But that individual citation is far from the mind of Reggie. He wants that title for than anything. "I fit in easy with the locals, I'm not a mean guy, I'm a nice guy, approachable," he said. "So I just try to do my job. I really don't worry about the other imports, because there are different things going on for them than with me. So I'm just trying to stay level-headed and lead my team as far as I can," Johnson added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Stanley Pringle awarded first POW for Comm s Cup

Fil-American guard Stanley Pringle chalked up his first Cignal-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week award following his scintillating performance in GlobalPort’s king-sized upset of defending champion San Miguel Beer. The shifty guard out of Penn State churned out all-around numbers of 22 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals, leading the Batang Pier to a 98-94 win over the Beermen last Wednesday. Pringle, fresh from representing the Philippines in the recent 2018 FIBA 3x3 World Cup, saved his best in the final period when he scored eight points, grabbed two rebounds and made a crucial steal that led to a Mo Tautuaa basket in the dying seconds to seal GlobalPort’s fourth win in eight matches. GlobalPort is currently tied for fifth to sixth spots with SMB with the PBA Commissioner’s Cup elimination round heading to its last three weeks. Pringle's sterling effort enabled him to seal his first weekly citation this conference, beating Meralco’s Jared Dillinger and KG Canaleta, Rain or Shine’s James Yap and Beau Belga and Ginebra playmaker LA Tenorio. GlobalPort will have two big games coming up this week, starting with Phoenix on Wednesday, before facing Columbian Dyip two days later—the results of which could determine their playoff fate in the mid-season conference. .....»»

PBA: Chris Tiu s lip already looking fine after enduring hardest hit on the face

Rain or Shine guard Chris Tiu's lip is looking fine, but the six-year PBA veteran revealed harrowing effect of Batang Pier import Malcolm White's elbow that got him straight on the lip last May 20.   I decided to post this on my main feed for remembrance. The left photo was the night of the accident & right photo was 7 days after. The accident happened 12 days ago on May 20 in a PBA game. It was the hardest hit on the face I've ever experienced causing a 1 second blackout. My doctor, who is a plastic surgeon, said that my tooth ripped through my lip muscle so deep that only the skin was left. They said the impact was so strong and that I was really lucky because there could have been worse complications with the brain & face. He did such a good job stitching me up w/ minimal pain during and after. My guardian angels were surely watching over me! I also realized later that I should not have been allowed to return to play right away since there should have been a concussion protocol. I guess this is a lesson for myself, the league and for other athletes. Again, I'd like to thank all those who were sending messages of support and for your prayers! And also to my amazing doctors and PTs who made me look fresh again (and whiter! Haha you know who you are ) 😄 A post shared by Chris Tiu (@chris_tiu17) on Jun 1, 2018 at 1:22am PDT Turns out, him spitting out blood on live TV is only part of the story, as 12 days after the encounter, Tiu bared more disturbing details about the incident. "It was the hardest hit on the face I've ever experienced causing a 1 second blackout," Tiu said in the Instagram post.  The veteran guard even breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that his injury could have been much worse. "My doctor, who is a plastic surgeon, said that my tooth ripped through my lip muscle so deep that only the skin was left," he said.  His doctor also said that the 32-year-old avoided some serious damage to his brain and face. "They said the impact was so strong and that I was really lucky because there could have been worse complications with the brain & face. He did such a good job stitching me up w/ minimal pain during and after," said Tiu. Ultimately, Tiu believes the incident should be a lesson for the players, and the league itself to protect everyone involved, especially since he was "cleared" to play despite getting hurt seriously. "I also realized later that I should not have been allowed to return to play right away since there should have been a concussion protocol," Tiu said. "I guess this is a lesson for myself, the league and for other athletes.".....»»
