PBA: Clutch Bolick is Player of the Week

Robert Bolick showed he’s ready to take over the mantle at NorthPort following the shocking exit of top gunner Stanley Pringle. Two games since the Batang Pier dealt Pringle to Barangay Ginebra for the trio of Kevin Ferrer, Sol Mercado, and Jervy Cruz, the rookie guard out of San Beda jacked up his numbers in helping the team clinch a quarterfinals berth in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Bolick averaged 19.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 9.5 assists in an all-around effort to steer NorthPort to back-to-back wins over Rain or Shine and Blackwater and hike its record to a league-best 7-1 slate in a tie with TnT Katropa. The impressive performance earned the 23-year-old native of Leyte his first ever PBA Press Corps-Cignal Player of the Week for the period June 17-23. Also getting a vote from the PBAPC was Bolick’s NorthPort teammate Sean Anthony. Others who contended for the weekly citation were Batang Pier Moala Tautuaa, Jayson Castro and Roger Pogoy of TnT Katropa, San Miguel Beer’s Alex Cabagnot, Paul Lee of Magnolia, Pringle, and Jericho Cruz of NLEX. In NorthPort’s first game without the 32-year-old Pringle, Bolick and Tautuaa carried the fight for the Batang Pier by rallying them from as much as a 25-point deficit to nip the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters in overtime, 107-105. Bolick hit 22 points and fired the pressure-pack three-pointer with 11 seconds left in regulation that sent the game into overtime.     Tautuaa finished with a career-high 34 points for NorthPort, which played with only an eighth-man rotation. Three days after, Bolick was at it again, missing just a single rebound of completing a triple double in the team’s 127-99 rout of the Elite. He finished with 16 points, nine rebounds, and 10 assists in the win that marked the first game of Mercado, Ferrer, and Cruz with the team. Bolick admitted he owed Pringle a lot for making him the player that he is with NorthPort right now. “Gusto ko siyang makasama ng mas matagal. Kaso one conference lang, madami pa sana akong matututunan. Kung ano man meron ako ngayon (sa) laro ko, lahat, sa kanya (Pringle) ko natutunan yun,” said Bolick of the player he considered as his first pro mentor......»»

PBA: Brownlee expects big things to come from Ray Parks

Justin Brownlee has won an incredible amount of championships with different teams in different leagues since 2016. In one particular memorable run in the ABL with San Miguel-Alab Pilipinas, Brownlee won the title playing alongside Bobby Ray Parks Jr. The two of them crossed paths on the court again Friday, this time as opponents in the PBA. Parks Jr. playing only his second game in the big leagues, led his Blackwater crew to a stunning overtime win against Brownlee and his champion Gin Kings. Ginebra’s super import was not surprised. “That's why – if I'm not mistaken – three-time [ABL] MVP. I've seen him do it for the past 3 years in Alab even before I got there, I was keeping up with him and he was doing great,” Brownlee said of his former teammate. “I definitely expect big things for him in this league too,” he added. Brownlee says Parks’ size and versatility makes him stand out. The no. 2 overall pick of the 2018 Draft certainly showcased his talents against Ginebra, scoring 28 points, including 10 in overtime, to get the job done. “He got a lot of weapons. Has a great size for his position, can put the ball on the floor, can attack, can shoot the three-pointer, can get to the line,” Brownlee said of Parks. “It's very tough trying to contain him, keeping him from the free throw line and not the paint. He hit some big shots. He had a really good game and they're looking really good this conference,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Magnolia silences doubters by dragging its way to Final

After winning the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup, Magnolia’s All-Filipino campaign was trying, to say the least. The Hotshots started the season 0-3. They scrapped their way to make the quarterfinals. Once in the playoffs, Magnolia was down 0-1 to Ginebra in a best-of-3 series. The Hotshots again scrapped their way to advance. In the semifinals, Magnolia was down 0-2 to Rain or Shine before the Hotshots scrapped their way to an overtime win in Game 7. Now, Magnolia is back in the Philippine Cup Finals to have another chance of dethroning the mighty San Miguel Beer. 0-3 to start the season. 0-1 to Ginebra. 0-2 to Rain or Shine. All that and Magnolia still makes the Philippine Cup Finals for a second straight year. The Hotshots keeping the doubters quiet #NSD #PBA2019 | @abscbnsports — Paul Kennedy Lintag (@paullintag8) April 28, 2019 Down 17 in the second half of Game 7, the Hotshots kept their composure and slowly made their way back. In the end, it’s the same composure that allowed them to get some timely baskets to eke out a tough win. “Very proud sa grupo, sa buong team, sa buong coaching staff. Makikita mo kung nandoon ka sa huddle namin, noong down big kami, kahit isang player or coaching staff walang naging negative. So yun yung napag-usapan namin na from the start, bago pumunta dito sa game na ito, kahit anong mangyari kung magiging down tayo or magiging up tayo walang negative muna puro positive muna,” Lee said. “So sa tingin ko yun ang nagdala ng kumpyansa sa amin kaya kami nakabalik,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

'Samahang walang katulad' behind SMB's continued success

Look up the word versatile in the basketball dictionary and you'll probabyly find a photo of Arwind Santos in the Philippine version of the book. While his scoring outburts come few and far between at this stage of his PBA career, the man they call Spider-Man is still a terror on defense. His ability to dominate on the non-fancy side of the floor was once again showcased against Ginebra as the former no. 2 overall pick from Far Eastern University came away with a pair of crucial offensive rebounds in the last 30 seconds and provided the challenge on LA Tenorio's floater that would've sent the game to overtime. In the end, Santos finished with a mere 10 points but added 12 rebounds, two assists, one block, and one steal in another all-around effort. 'Sabi ko nga, bakit ko pa papahirapan ang basketball?' Santos said after the Beermen picked up their sixth straight victory. 'Ang basketball maraming sangkap eh, maraming masarap na sangkap. Andyan ang rebound, puntos, depensa, agaw, blocks. Anytime na hindi pumapasok ‘yung tira ko sa labas, sa three point, kaya ayun, nagbawi ako sa depensa at saka sa rebound. Mabuti nalang naging maganda ang resulta. In the end, panalo,' he added. With the champs sitting pretty at number one after also being the first to punch a its playoff ticket in the Philippine Cup, Santos also takes a whole different role off the court as he tries to keep his star teammates motivated. After all, the Beermen are chasing history as they hope to become only the second team in history to win three straight All-Filipino crowns. 'Thankful kami number one kami. Pero ano eh, nakakatakot din,' Arwind admits. 'Siguro yung part ko na i-remind yung bawat isa, kasi minsan nagiging kuntento. Pumapasok yung pagiging relaxed, sana di namin madala yun. Kasi pag kayo ang number one, kailangan mas lalo pa naming dagdagan yung effort namin. Wag kaming magsasawang manalo,' the 2013 PBA MVP added. With the San Miguel machine performing a peak condition though, it doesn't look like Arwind the team captain will have a hard time keeping his squad in check. 'Walang malaki ang ulo rito. Kumbaga, yun ang pinaka breand and butter namin. Kaya kami nasa number one ngayon, yun ang ganda ng samahan,' he said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

Batang PBA star Jaymalin to train in Canada

Fresh from helping the NLEX Road Warriors win the title in the Batang PBA 15-and-under categrory, teen prospect Liam Jaymalin is set to leave for Canada next month to get the necessary training in hopes of improving his skills. The 14-year-old Jaymalin played a huge part during the campaign of NLEX in the Batang PBA, and was a key contributor in the Road Warriors 102-85 win over TNT KaTropa in the championship game. Jaymilin, who played for the La Salle Antipolo basketball team, is set to leave July 3 for Vancouver. He is already enrolled and is expected to join the basketball squad of St. Patrick Regional Secondary School as a Grade 9 student. “He’ll study and train in Canada, hopefully for a better career in basketball,” said Liam's father Rjay Jaymalin, a businessman in Vancouver. “Since all of us are already here, including his three siblings who are all Canadian citizens, we decided to bring Liam to study here and at the same time be able to train.” “Here, as parents, we’ll be able to guide him and see his progress as a basketball player. Our hope is if he returns to our country, he’ll comeback as a better player,” added the elder Jaymalin, who played college ball for Mapua and Jose Rizal University. The young Jaymalin’s love for basketball began at early age at three-years-old when his father would bring him to games.  Jaymalin has joined several training camps, including the National Basketball Training Center (NBTC), the Jr. NBA and the Alaska Power Camp where he won two Most Valuable Player Awards.  His favorite players are Scottie Thompson of Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks. “I hope to one day play in the professional league like my idols. I’m looking forward to improving my skills in Canada and when the time comes for me to comeback, it’ll help me compete against the best players in the country. I don’t know what the future holds but I’ll put in the hard work in training and in every game,” said Jaymalin, who now stands 5-foot-7......»»

PBA Rookie of the Month: Bobby Ray Parks

The impact brought by Bobby Ray Parks was obvious enough the moment he suited up for Blackwater in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup. The 26-year-old Parks emerged as the Elite’s top gunner and immediately steered the team to victories in their first four outings to take the early lead in the mid-season conference. During that stretch, the no. 2 overall pick in last year’s draft averaged 23.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.8 steals in an all-around performance he capped with a career-best of 28 points in a thrilling 108-107 overtime win over Barangay Ginebra in only his second game in the league. Parks’ heroics gained him his first ever PBA Press Corps Rookie of the Month honor for May, beating out Columbian Dyip’s CJ Perez (24.3, 6.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists). The son of the late great PBA Import Bobby Parks became the third player to win the honor first handed out starting this season. Others who also gained the nod for the monthly citation were Perez (January and March) and Jayvee Mocon of Rain or Shine (February and March). Curiously, Parks won his initial match-up against Perez in a duel pitting the top two picks in last year’s draft. Parks scored 23 points, five rebounds, and five assists as the Elite defeated the Dyip, 118-110, last May 26. Perez finished with 17 points and seven rebounds in the Dyip’s third straight loss to open their campaign......»»

PBA: Pogoy shoots way to PoW citation In Commissioner’s Cup

Terrence Jones is not just the sole reason for TnT Katropa lording it over in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Roger Pogoy has also stepped up to the plate and been delivering huge numbers for the Katropa, who have consistently managed to stay on top of the mid-season conference standings. The tournament so far has seen Pogoy break his career-best not just once but twice, the last of which came in the team’s 104-96 beating of Barangay Ginebra. Pogoy’s hot-shooting had him emerging as the unanimous choice as PBA Press Corps-Cignal Player of the Week for the period June 10-16. The 27-year-old native of Minglanilla, Cebu beat out TnT teammates Don Trollano and Troy Rosario, Sean Anthony of NorthPort, Alex Mallari of Phoenix, Magnolia’s Ian Sangalang, the San Miguel trio of Marcio Lassiter, Alex Cabagnot, and June Mar Fajardo, and the Ginebra duo of Scottie Thompson and Greg Slaughter for the weekly honor. Pogoy was exceptionally hot against the Katropa’s big win over the Kings, as he torched them for 38 big points, a new career high for the Gilas Pilipinas gunner. The former Rookie of the Year capped off his heroics by firing a total of 10 three pointers. The feat made Pogoy as only the fourth player in league history to sink 10 three pointers, joining an elite company that included Allan Caidic, Kenneth Duremdes, and Marcio Lassiter......»»
