PBA: Blackwater fails to take advantage of import-less TNT

If the Blackwater Elite were to take any advantage against any opponent, it would be the import-less TNT KaTropa. Unfortunately for the now 0-6 Elite, the well-oiled machine that is the KaTropa flexed their muscles and blew out their opponents, 120-101.  For coach Bong Ramos, facing their import-less opponents was more of an advantage for the veteran-laden team, as their engines seemed to hum better after ousting import Jeremy Tyler. "Mas maganda pa nga silang walang import kasi they are easy to ano, kabisado nila yung sistema, yung import nila, nawawala e di ba?" Ramos said after the game.  "Matatawag nila yung plays nila na ginagamit nila sa all-Filipino na hindi nila ginagamit, limitado because they are adjusting to their import." With their struggles, import Jarrid Famous didn't help the cause, only scoring 11 points on a two out of five shooting clip. Despite the loss against an import-less squad, Ramos admitted that there were various kinks left to be straightened, as they could not match the offensive schemes TNT exhibited, which is virtually an All-Filipino team. "Kaya kung titignan mo, merong time na okay kami. Pag-rotate ko, bigla kaming bumabagsak. Doon makikita mo, hindi kami fluid. Wala kaming, yun nga. Hindi kami consistent." With the looming All-Star week starting Monday, the Elite will get some well needed rest -- and time to enhance their plays.  Ramos will certainly make the team work for the entire week, as they continue to search for the elusive win.  Despite their winless record, they could still theoretically make the playoffs if they win five straight, but if not, the newly-installed mentor will have just to promise another thing.  "Kung wala naman, we will still continue to play hard. Kasi nag-aaral kami. Yun naman ang sinabi ko. It's ano e. Work in progress kami. Kung ano man ang gagawin namin ngayon, ano na yun, tuloy-tuloy na yun for next conference."   __     Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

No. 1 ranking means nothing for Durham and the rest of Meralco.

A year after 'The Shot', Meralco's revenge tour puts the team front and center in the 2017 Governors' Cup after the Bolts earned the no. 1 seed entering the playoffs. However, reigning Best Import Allen Durham says that everything is still practically the same as last year, when he led Meralco to an inspired Finals run as the no. 4 seed. After all, the Bolts are not the only good team in the playoffs now. The no. 1 and no. 7 teams are only separated by two games. 'I think SMB, and Ginebra, and TNT [are] playing good. We're not the only team that's playing good right now,' Durham said after another near triple-double resulted in a big win over the Beermen to wrap up the elimination round Sunday. 'We just gotta keep doing what we do and we can't worry too much about the other teams,' he added. Durham, who poured 35 points, 13 rebounds, and eight assists against San Miguel, says that the real work only starts now in terms of Meralco's title run. No. 1 in the eliminations is good but no. 1 after the playoffs is better. Actually, it's the best. 'It feels good but they don't give you trophies for being no. 1 in the regular season,' Durham said. 'If you wanna be a champion at anything, it's not gonna be easy. Championship is in my mind,' he added. No. 1 Meralco, armed with a twice-to-beat advantage, will open the playoffs against no. 8 Blackwater next Tuesday.   br /> --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

ROS scores another big win ahead of PBA playoffs

Now the waiting game starts for Rain or Shine. The Elasto Painters handled their business to end the  elimination round of the 2017 PBA Governors' Cup, scoring a convincing 122-98 win over Blackwater Saturday at the Big Dome. ROS finished with a 7-4 record and whether or not the team ends up with a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals remains to be seen as there are three games left to play before the postseason unfolds next week. Up by only one at the break, the Elasto Painters turned the corner in the second half, pulling away from the stunned Elite to complete the 24-point win. Behind import J'Nathan Bullock and Raymond Almazan, ROS led by as many as 28 late in the game, 119-91. 'I guess we just wanted it more today. Everybody who came in the game stepped up. Basically I just told them that we have a chance on the top 4, the only way we can have that chance is to win,' head coach Caloy Garcia said. 'In the first half I thought we were just okay offensively but our defense wasn't there. In the second half I think we picked up especially when we went small ball, we started pressurind and they started turning the ball over. From there we got a good lead,' he added. Bullock fired 30 points to lead Rain or Shine on top of eight rebounds while Almazan added 20 points off the bench. Gabe Norwood finished with 15 points.   .....»»

PVL: Cool Smashers demolish handicapped Lady Warriors to advance in the Finals

Crowd favorite Creamline exploited the advantage of playing against a handicapped Pocari Sweat-Air Force to cruise to a 25-15, 25-18, 25-16 win to advance to its first Finals gig and dethrone the defending champions Friday. The Cool Smashers demolished the Lady Warriors sans top local scorer Myla Pablo to complete a best-of-three semifinals series come-from-behind victory and book their breakthrough championship stint after back-to-back bronze medal finishes last season. Alyssa Valdez was sharp as always to pace Creamline in the crucial match as the popular star advanced to her first Finals stint since a runne rup finish in the now-defunct V-League back in 2016, while playing for Bureau of Customs in the Reinforced Conference. Valdez had 15 points with 14 digs while Thai import Kuttika Kaewpin finished with 15 markers for Creamline, which outgunned the Lady Warriors, 45-25, in kills. Risa Sato had 10 points, Michele Gumabao scored eight while setter Jia Morado tallied 29 excellent sets for Creamline.  The Cool Smashers will meet in the best-of-three Finals starting on Sunday at the MOA Arena the survivor between BanKo and PayMaya in the other semis pairing. Creamline broke a 14-14 deadlock in the third set with eight unanswered points for a 22-14 lead before closing the match with a 3-2 scoring spurt. Pocari Sweat played without Pablo, who suffered a lower back injury during the warmups minutes before the start of the series decider, and marched into battle with American imports Ari Love and Maddi Palmer recovering from bum stomachs. Pocari Sweat missed the Finals for the first time in three years since it joined the V-League in 2016. Love posted 11 points while Palmer got nine points for the Lady Warriors, who will take on the loser between BanKo and PayMaya in the battle for third on Sunday.   ---          Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Beermen near top six finish, rip Elite

San Miguel Beer kept rolling after crushing Blackwater, 115-106, to book a ticket to the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup quarterfinals Wednesday at Mall of Asia Arena. It was a collective effort by the Beermen, who had seven players finishing in double-digit scoring led by Arwind Santos' 23 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field. "That's a very important game for us. We knew we can beat Blackwater but I told them this team is very dangerous because of their import Henry Walker," said SMB head coach Leo Austria. The Beermen notched their sixth win in seven games and their 6-4 record put them in good position to finish in the top six and avoid a twice-to-win disad...Keep on reading: Beermen near top six finish, rip Elite.....»»

PVL: Not a bad loss -- Valdez

Top spiker Alyssa Valdez and the whole Creamline crew kept their hopes high despite suffering a straight sets beating at the hands of the defending champion Pocari Sweat-Air Force in Game 1 of the best-of-three Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference Final Four. Rust from a three-week layoff and difficulty in adjusting with their new import were obvious from the Cool Smashers, a weak point that the Lady Warriors took advantage. Valdez was the only Creamline player in double figures with 16 points in the Cool Smashers’ 23-25, 12-25, 23-25, loss Sunday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Creamline was taken out of their comfort zone the whole match but the Tai Bundit-mentored squad remained optimistic of their chances to advance in the championship round. “Natalo, pero it's really not a bad loss for the team. We really have to have and look for that motivation going into Game Two,” said Valdez, who added nine digs. Creamline came off an almost one-month break after claiming the outright Final Four seat. A long layoff that took its toll on the Cool Smashers momentum. “Ang tagal din naming nawala and kailangan din namin ng magfa-fire and magfu-fuel sa amin para makuha 'yung momentum na kailangan naming,” said Valdez. “Sabi nga nila, mas marami kaming matututunan sa mga talo. Hopefully, 'yun 'yung makukuha namin sa talo na 'to.” It also didn’t help that the Cool Smashers had to a adjust with returning American import Laura Schaudt, who replaced Serbian Nina Asceric. Schaudt only had one point in three sets of play. “Laura was there naman last year,” Valdez said. “She knows 'yung goal ng team namin. More than anything, we're gonna accept all the changes and adjustments na needed para maka-survive 'yung team namin.” The Cool Smashers will have their backs against the wall on Wednesday when they try to extend the series and avoid another semis meltdown – a problem that haunted Creamline since last year.           --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PBA: Elasto Painters clinch no. 1 with overtime win over Meralco

No. 1 goes to Rain or Shine. The Elasto Painters won yet another close game, this time beating Meralco in overtime, 106-99, in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup Sunday at the Big Dome. ROS improved to 9-1, best in the league. Rain or Shine is also 4-0 in overtime games this conference. More importanly, the Elasto Painters have secured first place and will take a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals. "I think it's the fourth overtime we played this conference, we won all four. I'm happy about it," head coach Caloy Garcia said. "But it's still a long way for this team. Marami pa ring turnovers, but we can still get better, even though we're winning. It's good to be No. 1 right now, we secured at least the No. 1 spot but we don't know who we're playing. it's the first time we have the 2x to beat, hopefully tuloy-tuloy ito," he added. After a dreadful final minutes of regulation in which both teams failed to break a 96-all tie, Rain or Shine got some cushion in extra time as Reggie Johnson nailed a three from the top of the key for the first basket of OT. The Elasto Painters' defense then stood its ground. limiting Meralco to only three points in five minutes to secure the win and the top overall seed. Johnson was the high man for ROS, scoring 21 points on top of 18 rebounds while Maverick Ahanmisi added 20. Chris Tiu finished with 13 and Ed Daquioag added another 11, including the final dagger three in overtime for the Elasto Painters. ROS was on fire to start, taking a 21-9 lead in the opening period. The Elasto Painters almost immediately lost that as Meralco settled down but ROS regained control in the second half where they led by as many as 18, 73-55. Meralco would charge back though, as the league's no. 1 defensive team turned the game into a struggle, eventually catching up in the fourth only to fall short in OT. Chris Newsome led the Bolts with 21 points while import Arinze Onuaku scored 20. Baser Amer dropped 19 for Meralco who will enter the playoffs with back-to-back defeats. At 7-4, the Bolts' final ranking is yet to be determined though they will figure in a best-of-3 series in the quarterfinals.   The Scores: RAIN OR SHINE 106 – Johnson 21, Ahanmisi 20, Tiu 13, Daquioag 11, Almazan 9, Norwood 9, Yap 7, Nambatac 5, Belga 5, Ponferada 4, Casino 2, Torres 0, Washington 0.

PBA: There’s a bit of clicking in my shoulder -- Walker

Blackwater was left without a reinforcement after the first quarter. The Elite managed to hold the fort for the next two periods with Henry Walker sitting at the bench. Playing limp without their best scorer, Blackwater crumbled in the last 12 minutes of the match Friday to fall out of playoffs contention in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Walker left the game after the first quarter as the import sustained a left shoulder injury in the Elite’s 94-104 loss to quarterfinals-bound Rain or Shine at the Big Dome.    “My shoulder’s just a bit sore. There’s a bit of clicking in my shoulder whenever I try to shoot,” said Walker, who played for only seven and a half minutes. “Been trying to work through it. Today I was shooting before the game and the pain got so bad and I couldn’t help my team.” Walker admitted that he’s been having problems with his shoulder since his first game of the conference in a loss to NLEX and decided not to risk aggravating it further. “Been experiencing it since the first game. Kinda having a little soreness and just getting hit on repeatedly. I just didn’t want to risk it any further,” added Walker, whose only basket came from a driving layup with three seconds left in the first period that gave Blackwater a 28-25 lead. The Elite bowed out of contention with a measly 1-8 win-loss record.  “We got a week so I’ll try to get some treatment,” said Walker. “Rest up and try to rehab. Strengthen the area around it and hopefully be ready for Friday.” With their conference already a bust, Walker and the Elite just want to work on their game and prepare for the Governors’ Cup.      “They’re coming around. They’re realizing they have the ability to play with anybody in the PBA and they’re showing it,” he said. “It took them longer than normal but we’re building towards something. I think in the Govs Cup we’ll see all the hard work pay off.”       --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PBA: Blackwater achieving goals despite losses, says Bong Ramos

It has not been a great Commissioner's Cup for Blackwater. They had fired long-time coach Leo Isaac at the start of the conference, the only coach they had known since they had entered the league in 2014, and replaced him with Bong Ramos. Since the firing last May, Ramos has incurred a 1-5 record, including an upset win over Magnolia last Wednesday. Despite the record, believe it or not, Blackwater has slowly been achieving goals, says Ramos. The newly-installed coach cited having an 11-point lead versus top-seeded Rain or Shine, before collapsing and eventually giving the game away. "Actually, mahirap talaga talunin ang Rain or Shine, malaki e. Although yung game plan naman namin ok naman di lang talaga masustain. Ang importante sa akin dun na meron pa kaming naachieve na goal. Kung tatanungin ninyo, siyempre building up character," the mentor said after the game. Losing import Henry Walker to a shoulder injury in the first quarter, the Elite banked on an All-Filipino lineup, and almost completed the upset against the top-seeded team of the conference.  But Chris Tiu happened. "Nasunod naman. Kaya nga naka-control kami. Kaya lang, siyempre, sabi ko nga pagdating sa endgame, pag naka-dikit kami may tsamba kami. But na-hit kami ni Chris Tiu ng apat or limang three points, kung talagang titignan mo meron sana kaming tsansa." "Pero ok lang, part of building the character yan e. Pero nakikita ko na nagiging balanse na kami. Yun kasi ang una kong ginawa binalanse ko yung lineup eh." Now eliminated from playoff contention with a 1-8 slate, Ramos could only hope his team shows the same amount of grit against the San Miguel Beermen and the Meralco Bolts to bring end their campaign with a bang in the mid-season tournament. "At least, hindi sa umpisa umaayaw na so hopefully against Meralco and San Miguel next sana lalaban pa din kami. Pag lumaban pa rin kami dun sa dalawang yun kahit na di kami manalo basta lumaban yung team na yan, that means we're on the right track." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

Despite slim chances, Blackwater not bowing out just yet

Blackwater coach Bong Ramos felt relieved after his team finally broke through for its first win in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup. But despite that, Ramos already appeared resigned to the idea that the Elite are no longer in play for a playoff spot after digging themselves a deep hole with seven straight losses to open the conference. "I know we're now uninvited guests but I believe we're still here and unlike others, we're not here to just be on vacation," Ramos told reporters in Filipino after a 86-84 squeaker over Magnolia on Wednesday.

PVL: Fighting Warays close prelims with back-to-back wins

Tacloban built its momentum heading into the quarterfinals with back-to-back wins at the expense of the defending champion Pocari Sweat-Air Force, 25-17, 17-25, 25-20, 16-25, 15-10, Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Fighting Warays closed the preliminary round with a 4-3 win-loss record. Thai import Hyapha Amporn finished with 19 points with all but one coming off attacks while Jovielyn Prado added 18 markers anchored on 17 kills including the match-clinching through the block hit to cap the victory for Tacloban, which will play in the round robin quarterfinals starting Saturday where the last two best-of-three Final Four seats are at stake. League-leading Creamline (5-1) and PayMaya (4-2) clinched the two outright semis seats. Thai reinforcement Patcharee Saengmuang finished with 15 points and 14 digs for the Fighting Warays.    “Unang-una medyo high morale ‘yung mga players, ang ina-ano ko lang kasi, ‘di ba nagpalit kami ng player, so ‘yung adjustment and teamwork mabuo ulit,” said Tacloban head coach Nes Pamilar. The Fighting Warays raced to an early 4-1 lead only to see the Lady Warriors tie it at 4-4. Tacloban answered with a scoring spurt of its own to take a 9-4 advantage. Pocari Sweat threatened again as they chipped away their deficit, 10-12, before the Fighting Warays closed the match with three straight points.   “Kanina sa second set and fourth set niremind ko sila na bakit ganoon kapag nananalo ng isang set nagre-relax,” said Pamilar. “Kaya noong fifth set sabi ko kaiangan mabago natin, kailangan itong fifth set all out tayo.” Myla Pablo led the Lady Warriors with 20 points and 11 excellent receptions while American imports Ari Love and Maddie Palmer posted 16 and 15 markers, respectively. Jeanette Panaga had 11 points for Pocari Sweat, which ended the prelims with back-to-back losses and a 3-4 mark tied with Petro Gazz and BanKo.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
