PBA: Nambatac shoots way to PoW citation

Rey Nambatac is fast becoming one of Rain or Shine’s reliable players this season as he continues to step up for the team in the mid-season PBA Commissioner’s Cup. The wily guard was big for the Elasto Painters in their back-to-back victories over Barangay Ginebra and Phoenix, allowing the team to recover from a slow start and even its record at 2-2. Nambatac had a career-game of 30 points including 7-of-11 from three-point range in Rain or Shine’s 104-81 blowout of the Kings, and then followed up his heroics by coming through in the clutch as the Elasto Painters rallied back to upstage the Fuel Masters, 89-82. The 25-year-old former Letran standout averaged 20.5 points in his team’s last two games, earning for him a first ever PBA Press Corps-Cignal Player of the Week honor from June 3-9. Nambatac, picked seventh overall by the Elasto Painters in the 2017 draft, beat out eight other candidates for the weekly citation handed out by the men and women covering the PBA beat. Others who vied for the honor included Nambatac’s teammate Javee Mocon, Chris Banchero and Jeron Teng of Alaska, the TnT Katropa trio of Jayson Castro, Troy Rosario, and Roger Pogoy, NorthPort’s Robert Bolick, and Blackwater rookie Bobby Ray Parks. After their twin victories, the Elasto Painters won’t return to action until June 19 when they clash with co-league leader NorthPort at the Mall of Asia Arena......»»

Batang Pier go for top-2 spot against champion SMB

For the seond straight week, two-time defending Philippine Cup champion San Miguel will face the number 2 team in the PBA. But with the Beermen already secured of a quarterfinal slot and a twice-to-beat advantage, this no. 1 vs. no. 2 matchup is certainly more important for the Globalport Batang Pier who currently hold solo second place in the season-opening conference. Entereing this Lapu-Lapu City matchup as winners of back-to-back games, the 5-3 Batang Pier got solo second after Rain or Shine lost Friday to Meralco. But with teams stacked up with five wins apiece, a big victory by the Terrence Romeo and co. will mean a greater chance for the Batang Pier to secure a playoff bonus alongside the Beermen. However, it's not like the chance have nothing at stake here though. Winners of seven straight and currently holding a league-best 8-1 card, one more win by San Miguel means that the Beermen will be the number one overall seed throughout the playoffs. And as winners of the last two All-Filipino tournaments, number one is something that the Beermen have grown accustomed to. Also, reigning three-time MVP June Mar Fajardo wouldn't want to disappoint his hometown crowd right? Gametime is set the the Hopes Dome in Lapu-Lapu at 5:00 p.m. .....»»

Lady Chiefs out to secure second semis berth

Arellano University shoots for a Final Four berth while Lyceum of the Philippines University guns for at least a playoff for a semis spot Wednesday in the 92nd NCAA women’s volleyball tournament at The Arena in San Juan. The Lady Chiefs pulled the rug from under defending champion College of St. Benilde Lady Blazers, 25-21, 25-21, 25-21, last week to nail their sixth straight win in seven outings to secure at least a playoff for a Final Four spot. A victory in their 11:30 a.m. showdown with Lady Pirates, who are precariously clinging to a spot in the magic four, would send Arellano to the next round alongside the Grethcel Soltones-led San Sebastian College Lady Stags, the lone unbeaten squad with seven victories. LPU currently owns a 5-2 (win-loss) record and would be in dire need of a win that will secure it of at least a playoff for a berth in the semis. It plays San Sebastian on Jan. 23 in its last elimination round game. In juniors' action, LPU seeks the first of needed two triumphs to barge straight to the finals as it tackles Arellano (4-1) at 8:30 a.m. The Junior Pirates shocked the Perpetual Help Junior Altas, 19-25, 20-25, 25-22, 26-24, 15-12, Friday to remain unscathed in five outings that put the former two wins away from booking a slot in the finals where they will enjoy a thrice-to-beat edge. In men's play, LPU (3-4) and Arellano (5-2) collide at 10 a.m. while ousted Jose Rizal (1-6) and Jose Rizal (1-6) face off at 2:30 p.m. .....»»

TNT and Phoenix face separate foes as playoff race heats up

Five teams currently have 4-4 records in the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup. At the end of Wednesday, two teams will break away from that logjam, for better or for worse. TNT and Phoenix face separate foes at the Cuneta Astrodome in hopes of trying to improve their respective playoff campaigns. The struggling KaTropa take the floor first against a confident Mahindra (2-5) squad at 4:15 p.m. with the Floodbuster looking to make in three in a row and solidify their own case for a quarterfinals slot. Since scoring a Christmsa breakthrough, Mahindra has carried on in 2017 and facing a vulnerable TNT squad, a team that has lost two straight, seems like the perfect opportunity for the Floodbuster to keep turning their campaign around. In the second game, Phoenix looks to jump back on the winning track as the Fuel Masters take on NLEX at 7:00 p.m. Despite an impressive outing against TNT, the Road Warriors failed to get anything going after falling short to Globalport, dropping their record to 2-6. The Fuel Masters meanwhile go for a strong finish after suffering a hiccup vs. Rain or Shine. .....»»

Mr. Clutch or Mr. Automatic?

Call him Mr. Clutch or Mr. Automatic, either way, Alex Cabagnot will get it done if San Miguel needs him to make a crucial basket. He's done it many times before and he did again for the Beermen Friday, forcing overtime against Rain or Shine with one second to go in regulation, capping a bizarre sequence that saw the two-time defending Philippine Cup champs forgetting how to call timeout even if they still had two left. 'That's why I'm on the floor so I think that'll be a hindrance if I don't do that for the team,' Cabagnot sait following San Miguel's 107-101 victory over ROS. 'The team trusted me to do [take that crucial shot] and I just have to take full responsibilty for that,' he added. Thanks to Cabagnot's heroics, San Miguel has now won seven games in a row for a league-best 8-1 mark. With a quarterfinal slot already in the bag, the Beermen are not expected to drop to lower than second place especiall with the way they are playing and with two games to go in their schedule. But with those two games spread over the next two weeks, Mr. Clutch, or Mr. Automatic, whichever name you prefer, would like that champs to keep their focus. 'I think there's a 90 percent chance for us making it [as solo No. 1],' Cabagnot said. 'We'll just gonna try not to create bad habits in the last two games. It's a long layover, we'll just continue to play fundamentally,' he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

Red-hot SMB put winning streak on the line vs. Ginebra

After coming out to a relatively slow start by their own awesome standards, two-time defending Philippine Cup champion San Miguel has put together an impressive run as of late, blowing out everybody for a league-leading 6-1 mark. And with a quarterfinal berth already secured following five straight wins, the Beermen start working on taking one of the two playoff bonuses as the PBA continues Sunday at the Big Dome. Standing in their way is sister team Brgy. Ginebra, the same team that elimated them in the semifinals of the past Governors' Cup. Unlike the Beermen, the Gin Kings have suffered a bit of a championship hangover to start the season, stumbling to a 3-3 record so far. However, a big win last Christmas was a boost for Ginebra as they play their first game of the new year. Gametime is set at 7:00 p.m. In the first game at 4:30 p.m., Rain or Shine and Phoenix duel for solo second place, hoping to create some space between them and a crowded set of teams with four victories each. With TNT losing to NLEX Saturday, the Elasto Painters currently sit alone at the no. 2 spot with a 4-2 mark while the Fuel Masters, winners of back-to-back games, enter with a 4-3 record. .....»»
