Beermen clinch playoff bonus on their day off

As proof of their dominance so far in the Philippine cup, two-time defending champion San Miguel Beermen clinched a twice-to-beat advantage in the playoffs despite doing nothing Sunday. Following their seventh straight win just two days before to improve to a league-best 8-1, there was still a slight chance that the Beermen would actually fail to finish in the top two. But with both Alaska and TNT losing their respective games Sunday at the Big Dome, there's no doubt now about San Miguel heading to the playoffs to defend its title with some perks. Head statistician Fidel Mangonon III confirmed that the champs got the first of the two twice-to-beat advantages in the quarterfinals. As for the rest of the field, eight teams are currently separated by one game in the standings. Globalport and Rain or Shine currently share second place with identical 5-3 cards while Blackwater sits alone at fourth with a 5-4 record. TNT, Star, Ginebra, Phoenix, and Alaska are all stuck in the middle at 4-4 while Mahindra, NLEX, and Meralco complete the list with two wins each. Only eight teams advance in the Philippine Cup with the top-2 seeds earning a twice-to-beat advantage. Teams ranked 3rd-6th figure in a best-of-3 series and all ties are to be broken by the quotient system.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

An NBA franchise in Mexico is not yet on the horizon

em>By Carlos Rodriguez, Associated Press /em> MEXICO CITY (AP) — An NBA franchise in Mexico City? Not so fast. A couple of days after the Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said that he was in favor of a team playing south of the border, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Saturday that it will not happen, at least not in the immediate future. Before the Mavericks beat the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time) in Mexico City, Cuban said that a team in Mexico would help the sport, while he praised the Arena Ciudad de Mexico and added that the distance from the United States isn't a factor. Mexico City's governor, Miguel Angel Mancera, has also said that he's in favor of the idea. 'The next step before we start talking about a franchise in Mexico City is to bring more games here, and we have this two regular-season games and whether we bring additional regular-season games next season or do some sort of tournament with several teams playing each other, that is something that we are looking at,' Silver said a press conference before the Spurs and Suns took the court. Including preseason, Mexico has hosted 24 NBA games since 1992, that's more than any country besides the United States and Canada. 'In terms of a franchise here in Mexico City, it is something to look at,' Silver said. 'Obviously, it's an incredible market with over 20 million people, the largest market in North America and, while we have no immediate plans to expand, one of the things that we look at, it's whether expanding will be additive to the league as a whole and clearly coming to Mexico City, not just because the population of the city but as a gateway to the rest of Latin America could potentially be very important for the league.' The game Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) was fifth regular-season game in the country. Four of them have been played in Area Ciudad de Mexico, a glass-clad state of the art arena that was built in 2012 that hosts over 20,000 fans. 'As I said before there's no market more important for us than Mexico, we already have discussions earlier today about bringing other games here,' Silver said. 'But ultimately it will make more sense to bring more teams rather than just have two teams play each other for a single event to maybe bring multiple teams and to have some sort of midseason tournament, sort of like a round-robin tournament.' .....»»

Romeo in the middle of Globalport's maturation process

Terrence Romeo is in the middle of the ongoing maturity of Globalport as a team in 2017. Since they suffered a 26-point fourth quarter collapse to Phoenix late last year, the Batang Pier have won back-to-back games, playing well enough in crunch time to hold on for victories even if they still have a tendency to let go of big leads. It's a lesson they would probably take for the rest of their careers. 'Tumatak yun, kasi parang isa yata yun sa biggest comeback eh,' said Terrence Romeo and he's absolutely right as the Phoenix rally was the biggest fourth-quarter miracle in a decade. 'Dapat di na mangyari yun,' he added. In order to not let that sort of thing happen again, Romeo is leading by example for Globalport as the dynamic guard out of FEU has slowly learned to pick his spots in games. Sure, he's still scoring an insane amount of points (27.6 points per game after Friday's 32-point effort), but the Bro is timing his scoring explosions effectively. Romeo scored a season-high 22 points in the first half against the Road Warriors, setting the tone early for Globalport. He then took a backseat in the third perid and allowed runningmate Stanley Pringle do his thing. But when NLEX cut a once 21-point lead to eight in the fourth and final quarter, it was Romeo that put the finishing touches for the Batang Pier, scoring another seven points for good measure. 'Natutunan ko yun nung mga last games ko,' Romeo admits. 'Pagka first half okay laro ko, pagdating ng third and fourth pag pinilit ko pa rin na ako pa rin, masyadong nakatutok sakin yung depensa. Ginawa ko nag spot up lang ako, hinayaan ko sila maglaro.' 'Pero pag tingin ko naman na kailangan nila ako, kukunin ko din ang bola at didiskarte din ako,' he added. Aside from managing his scoring opportunities, part of Romeo and Globalport's maturation process is not to get excited over one big win. With a chance to go for the top-2 spots in the All-Filipino and a matchup against the mighty San Miguel Beer on the horizon, the Batang Pier remain all business. 'Kailangan wag namin isipin yung panalo namin dito, hindi naman sa minamaliit namin yung NLEX pero kailangan yung goal namin is mapunta dun sa number one or number two so hindi kami pwede matuwa dahil natalo namin NLEX. Kumbaga after one day celebration, next day back to focus na kami,' Romeo said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

ROS takes over solo second after burning Phoenix

Phoenix appeared to be in the middle of another comeback Sunday against Rain or Shine, cutting a 21-point deficit by more than half with ample time to go in the fourth quarter. However, the Fuel Masters didn't take into account Jericho Cruz suddenly going Splash Brother all over the Big Dome. Cruz fired three straight treys in the payoff period, providing insurance for Rain or Shine as the Elasto Painters scored an impressive 97-82 victory in the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup. With the Fuel Masters gaining momentum behind rookie Matthew Wright, Cruz connected a trifecta on long-range bombs in a span of 68 seconds to turn a nine-point lead into a 90-74 cushion. Cruz ended up with 21 points, 15 from deep, and eight rebounds off the bench, leading the Elasto Painters to their fifth win against two defeats for solo second place. Down one game against two-time defending champion San Miguel, Rain or Shine set up a mega showdown against the Beermen next week for first place. Not playing a game since Dec. 23 of last year, Rain or Shine didn't show signs of rust one bit, scoring 30 points in the first 12 minutes to put up an early double-digit lead. Phoenix cut the deficit to one in the middle of the second quarter before the Elasto Painters recovered and took a 53-45 lead at the break. The game took a turn for worse for the Fuel Masters in the second half as Rain or Shine went on a big 16-0 run to establish the biggest lead of the contest at 21 points, 66-45. Aside from Cruz, Jeff Chan and James Yap also finished in double figures for ROS, going for 12 and 10 points respectively. .....»»
