PBA: Kiefer’s presence felt in NLEX’s perfect start

Kiefer Ravena’s return to the PBA is having an immediate effect for NLEX. The Road Warriors are 2-0 with their Phenom back, and Kiefer has been a major key to this strong start by NLEX. In NLEX's win over Meralco, Ravena finished with 15 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists, including the pass that led to the dagger layup for Jericho Cruz in the final minute. “May mga pyesa kami ngayon. Nung huli wala kaming pyesa. We had a lot of games we lost in the endgame because we really did not have solid point guards. We were not able to finish strong in the endgame,” head coach Yeng Guiao said. “We had a lot of close games but we lost the fourth quarter. But Kiefer is making a big difference,” he added. Despite the big compliment from his coach, Ravena says he’s just focused on his role. Also, Kiefer is keeps his focus on winning with NLEX after 18 months of being away due to his suspension. “With coach Yeng, if he says that to anybody, makaka-taas talaga ng confidence. For us, we just steer the ship the right way. I’ll just do my job of facilitating,” Kiefer said. “Hopefully tuluy-tuloy lang. Ako naman as long as nananalo kami. In every theam that coach Yeng has coached, anybody can shine,” Ravena added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

San Miguel gives bad ending to NorthPort s fairytale PBA Comm s Cup

San Miguel discarded NorthPort's twice-to-beat advantage and the seventh-seed proceeded to dispatch of the second-seed following a well-earned 90-88 win, Wednesday at Araneta Coliseum. Chris Mccullough pounded in a 30-point, 11-rebound double-double to power the Beermen to the semifinals of the 2019 PBA Commissioner's Cup. In the endgame, it was also the American reinforcement who came up big, hitting the go-ahead layup over multiple defenders as well as the win-sealing free throws. Still, Robert Bolick had more than enough time to make something happen for the Batang Pier, but Arwind Santos got a good contest on his triple try. In the end, San Miguel also got much-welcome contributions from Arwind Santos who had 10 points, half coming in the last two minutes, and 10 rebounds as well as Alex Cabagnot who had 10 markers, five boards, and four assists. That allowed the Beermen to rally around the loss of Marcio Lassiter who scored 11 points in just 15 minutes before exiting due to an apparent left knee injury. More importantly, that allowed them to move on to the next round where they await the winner between Blackwater and Rain or Shine. On the other hand, NorthPort's best elimination round finish failed to translate to the playoffs. Armed with its first-ever twice-to-beat advantage in franchise history, it was unable to overcome dynastic San Miguel. Fronting their effort in this one were Garvo Lanete and Mo Tautuaa who had 22 and 20 points, respectively. American reinforcement Prince Ibeh also added 15 markers and 20 rebounds while Bolick chipped in 13 points, seven boards, five assists and two steals. BOX SCORES SAN MIGUELl 90 - McCullough 31, Lassiter 11, Cabagnot 10, Santos 10, Fajardo 8, Standhardinger 8, Romeo 5, Pessumal 3, Ross 2, Rosser 2.

PBA: Blackwater pounces on third-seed after piling onto Alaska s woes

Blackwater will continue its best campaign in franchise history as the third-seed in the 2019 PBA Commissioner's Cup by virtue of a well-earned 112-104 win over Alaska, Sunday at Araneta Coliseum. As always, super rookie Ray Parks Jr. and American reinforcement Staphon Blair showed the Elite the way to victory with the former finishing with 25 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, and three steals and the latter ending with his own 14-marker, 10-board double-double. With those two at the head of the attack, the upstart squad has now risen to its best-ever finish in the elimination round. However, it was Allein Maliksi, Mac Belo, and Roi Sumang who got together in the 9-3 run that broke open a tied tally of 93-all and built up a 102-96 advantage for Blackwater inside the last four minutes. The Aces wouldn’t quit just yet as Simon Enciso and Jeron Teng pulled them within a solitary point, 101-102. Only, Sumang had the quick counter for Blackwater and scored all but three points in their 9-3 finishing kick that eventually ended as their seventh win in 11 games. Prior to this, the Elite's best record at the end of eliminations was as the fifth-seed back in the 2018 Governors' Cup. Sumang wound up with 18 points in this one while Maliksi and Belo also added 15 and 13 markers, respectively. They now await how the bottom half of the seedings shake out, but their next matchups may be opposite Magnolia, San Miguel, or Rain or Shine. Also awaiting the results of the last three games in the eliminations is Alaska which suffered its fifth setback in a row and now stands at 4-7. Fronting their effort is American reinforcement Diamon Simpson who had 24 points on top of 18 rebounds, eight assists, and two blocks. BOX SCORES BLACKWATER 112 - Parks 25, Sumang 18, Maliksi 15, Blair 14, Belo 13, Al-Hussaini 12, Digregorio 6, Desiderio 4, Cortez 3, Sena 2, Alolino 0.

PBA: NLEX hits ground running for Governors Cup prep

NLEX is pretty much done in the 2019 PBA Commissioner's Cup. The Road Warriors are just at 2-7 in the mid-season joust even after a nice win over Rain or Shine Friday at the Big Dome. Still, NLEX is not letting a lost conference be put to waste as the Road Warriors are already starting their preparaions for the 2019 Governors' Cup. NLEX has brought back import Olu Ashaolu and every game is a chance for new guy Jericho Cruz to mesh well with his new teammates. Behind the scenes, the Road Warriors also now have star guard Kiefer Ravena back in practice. "We treat this as a learning experience for the rest of the guys — Olu coming in to be our import in the next conference and also Jericho getting used to his teammates," head coach Yeng Guiao after the win against ROS. "Ito na lang yung mga takeaways namin dito sa last few games namin," he added. NLEX will try to go all in for the Governors' Cup and Ravena's eventual return could be the boost the team needs. The Phenom can't fully join the Road Warriors just yet but team practices have leveled up with him back. "Yung practice namin, mas naging intense yung practice namin because that’s what Kiefer really brings to the practices. He’s very intense in the practices and it rubs off the rest of his teammates," Guiao said. "I think that’s one good thing he brings even if he’s not physically present in the games but he’s able to set the tone even in our practices," he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

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......»»

Kiefer Ravena looking forward to Governor s Cup as he re-joins NLEX in practice

Just hours after his first practice back with the National Team, Kiefer Ravena also re-joined his mother team, the NLEX Road Warriors, for practice, Tuesday morning at the FCL Center in Katipunan.  The 25-year old Ravena, the number two overall draft pick in the 2017 PBA, had his stellar rookie campaign cut short after being handed a suspension by FIBA for failing a random drug test in 2018.  The suspension encompassed not only Ravena's international play, but also his professional play here at home.  Now, with just two months left before his suspension is up and three months to go before he can return to the court with NLEX, Ravena is treating his first practice back like it was his first ever practice with the team.  "I treated it as a normal practice, just like my first day last year," Ravena shared with the media during a post-practice scrum. "I want to make it routine as possible, to hasten the process, to get back to my rhythm, especially, ibang team ‘to eh, NLEX ‘to eh, so every time na nandito ako, yung priority ko is to really think about what’s happening now first, and then pag nasa Gilas, sa hapon, yun naman ng pino-proseso ko." Apart from being able to return to basketball activities, Ravena said that he can also finally watch games as well, and he will be in the house on Friday when his Road Warriors take on Rain or Shine this Friday at the Araneta Coliseum.  "It was a good practice, we have a game on Friday against Rain or Shine. I’m excited to watch, it’s been a while since I’ve watched a basketball game. I’ll be there to watch and support the team." More than just finally being able to run with his squad, Ravena said he just missed simply being around his NLEX family.  "Yung trabaho mismo, yung pupunta ka dito, yung pupunta ka talaga dito mismo to practice, talk to your teammates, do something that I love doing, which is play basketball, just being around my teammates, yun yung pinaka-namiss ko." With the Road Warriors sitting at the bottom of the standings with a 1-7 slate and just three games left in the ongoing 2019 PBA Governor's Cup, it's highly unlikely that NLEX makes a playoff push. As early as now however, Ravena and the team are already getting ready for the third conference, the Governor's Cup.  "Again, it’s more than three months until I get to play with them kasi sa September pa, we’re preparing early for the third conference, so hopefully, ngayon pa lang, good start na sa amin." By the time the Governor's Cup rolls in, Ravena hopes to have with him a fully healthy NLEX squad. Right now, the team has been ravaged by injuries, with their other key playmaker Kevin Alas being sidelined with another ACL injury and veterans in Larry Fonacier, JR Quinahan and RJ Jazul still working their way back.  Ravena is also excited to finally share the court with new faces in Jericho Cruz and Poy Erram. Import Olu Ashaolu is also back with the Road Warriors and is expected to debut on Friday as part of their preparation for the third conference.  "With Jericho coming it, healthy si Poy, healthy is JR, with Olu, me and Kevin, si Jazul, he’s healthy, si Larry pa nandiyan, I think we’re ready to take steps back," said Ravena. "Our goal is to really win it all in the third conference, but we have to take it a day at a time." With three months to go before he makes his long-awaited NLEX return, Ravena is making sure that the team gets into a groove before the start of the Governor's Cup. Being away from the team and not being able to contribute was a difficult experience, Ravena said. Now, he's happy to be able to help the team out, even if it's just in practice for now.  "Siyempre, medyo mahirap, kasi parang medyo helpless ka, nanonood ka lang sa TV, wala kang magawa para makatulong, kahit gustong-gusto mo maka-tulong." Soon enough, 'The Phenom' will be back on the floor, and that can only mean good things for the Road Warriors.  "Pero at the end of the day, tapos na ‘yon, ilang buwan na lang aantayin ko, at least ngayon, eto, makakatulong na ako sa practice. Ito na yung quote-unquote ambag ko sa kanila to make us better for the next three games." "Again, it’s more than three months until I get to play with them kasi sa September pa, we’re preparing early for the third conference, so hopefully, ngayon pa lang, good start na sa amin," he added. .....»»

Eagerness to bounce back backfires on Rain or Shine

Losing a heavyweight bout to San Miguel exactly a week ago, Rain or Shine was obviously pumped to bounce back. The Elasto Painters looked like they had the perfect opportunity to do so as they were matched up with Meralco, a team coming in with six straight defeats Friday. However, their eagerness backfired as the Bolts scored an 82-72 upset, dropping ROS to a 5-4 record in the Philippine Cup. Now, instead of solo second, the Elasto Painters figure in a tie with at least two teams in the standings. 'Medyo nag-lack kami sa pag-follow sa sistema ni coach Caloy. Medyo gigil din kami sa talo namin sa San Miguel. Sobrang gusto namin mag-bounce back, bumaligtad,' Jerico Cruz said who was one of ROS' key pieces that struggled all game. 'Like I said after our loss to San Miguel, ang worry ko is who we will come out. And we came out flat. Give credit to Meralco. They played a great game and they play different when they’re complete. We just have to correct the wrong things we had tonight,' head coacj Caloy Garcia added. While they still have a fighting chance to make the top 2, Rain or Shine is more worried on actually staying in the playoff picture more than trying to get a twice-to-beat bonus in the quarterfinals. With teams piling up in the middle of the standings separated by only one game or so, winning out might be the only option right now for the Elasto Painters to avoid a sudden collapse. 'Ang crucial dito, hindi pa kami sure sa quarterfinals. Kapag natalo kami nang dalawang straight, baka malaglag pa,' James Yap, the only ROS player to actually play decent to finish with 17 points, said. 'As much as possible, we want to be in the Top 6. Yung Top 2, saka na ‘yan. If we have a chance, why not? Pero ngayon we’re just looking forward on winning another game first,' Garcia added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

No masking truth that Cabagnot is Player of the Week

It seems like there’s no stopping San Miguel playmaker Alex Cabagnot these days - not even a depressed nasal fracture. Though advised by doctors to undergo surgery, Cabagnot managed to still get a green light to play, provided he wears a facial mask to protect his injured nose. Except for that mask, nothing has changed for the left-handed guard who averaged 15.0 points, 4.5  rebounds, and 3.0 assists as the Beermen went 2-0 in a span of three days to become the first Accel-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week awardee in 2017. The 34-year-old Cabagnot beat the likes of fellow Beermen Arwind Santos and June Mar Fajardo, Rain or Shine’s Jericho Cruz, NLEX guard Carlo Lastimosa, and GlobalPort’s high-scoring gunner Terrence Romeo for the citation for the period of December 28, 2016-January 8, 2017. Although he felt uncomfortable playing with the facial mask the first time he wore it last Friday, Cabagnot managed to heat up fast, firing 10 points in the opening period to set the tone for San Miguel, which went on to clobber Blackwater, 118-93. The win helped San Miguel gain the first playoff spot in the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup. The University of Hawaii-Hilo standout finished the game with a near double-double output of 14 points and 9 rebounds against the Elite. Two days later, Cabagnot helped San Miguel get the upper hand after banging nine of his 16 points in the third period as the Beermen scraped past Brgy. Ginebra, 72-70, and improved to a tournament-best 7-1. Opting for surgery would have forced Cabagnot to miss the rest of the conference, a scenario that the SMB guard wouldn’t want to happen. “And I'll miss part of the Commissioner's Cup (if he underwent surgery), but we're in the middle of the season now and there are certain things you gotta do and you gotta take care of. Put the priorities at hand first,” he said. .....»»

Jericho shines in his own version of the "flu game"

Jericho Cruz was beastly for Rain or Shine in its first PBA game 0f 2017, going for 21 points in a 15-point Elasto Painters victory. More importantly, the underrated former Adamson Falcon buried a trifecta of dagger treys in the fourth quarter to put a stop on an impending Phoenix uprising, handing ROS its fifth win for the season. However, what's more impressive of Cruz's efficient outing was the fact that he came into the game battling flu. In fact, he didn't even expect to play much but ended up logging over 27 minutes agains tthe Fuel Masters. 'Siguro coming into this game, di ko ine-expect na bibigyan ako ni coach Caloy ng playing time kasi I was sick for three, four days na. Typical flu lang, nung second quarter sobrang hirap makahinga sa court,' Cruz said. 'Pero ayun, yung trust niya sakin nandun, kaya siguro pinaglaro niya ako. It paid off naman,' he added. As for his trio of long-range bombs though, Cruz is happy he got to do it in a PBA game but he's not at all surprised that hes' starting to make those looks. After all, he's going to practice everyday competing with Jeff Chan and James Yap, two expert marksmen on their own right. 'Siguro may tima na nagulat, pero kasi, araw-araw mi naman pina-practice ang shooting,' he said. 'I double my hardwork. Everyday I come in early and after practice I try to improve on my shooting. Para kahit papano ma-math ko lang shooting nila [Jeff and James],' Cruz added.   --- 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. .....»»
