PBA: Defiant Arwind says he’ll still do Spider-Man dunk if given the chance

Arwind Santos’ signature Spider-Man dunk could be no more. The PBA released a memo to all 12 PBA teams last Jan. 15 regarding players hanging on to rims after made dunks. A particular note in the memo read that players who hang on to rims after a dunk and “places either or both of his feet onto the backboard,” will be given a technical foul. [Related: PBA: Arwind's signature Spider-Man dunk now merits a technical foul] Literally only one PBA player does that and the league could have named the whole thing as the “Arwind Santos rule.” The new ruling was met with interesting responses to say the least with some saying it’s about time while others say that the PBA has singled out Santos, robbing him of his individuality. Well Arwind had this to say on the new rule. “Ako, hindi ako sang-ayon,” he said. “Kasi sabi ko nga, sabi nila Alex [Cabagnot], suporta rin. Magi-isponsor nga sila na kahit may fine daw, babayaran nila. Nakaka-tuwa naman. Na-touch ako. Pero ang akin kasi, trademark lang ba. Wala namang masama sa ginagawa ko,” Arwind added. Santos argued that the PBA could focus on better things, fixing issues that really needs fixing. Arwind feels that his trademark move is pretty much harmless, maybe except for opposing teams on the receiving end of his slam dunk. “Maraming mas pwede nating pagtuunan ng pansin na ipagbawal. Wag na yung Spider-Man dunk,” he said. “Mayroon rin kasing mga batang gustong-gusto makita yung Spider-Man dunk, [media], lalo na yung mga fans ko,” Santos added. Given the chance, Arwind says he’ll still do the Spider-Man dunk. As for the supposed danger the trademark dunk poses, Santos said accidents happen and things could still end up wrong regardless. “Kapag may chance, gagawin ko pa rin. Maliban sa alam kong may fine, hindi ko naman sinusuway pero para sa mga fans ko, kapag may pagkakataon, gagawin ko pa rin dahil kung sinasabi nila na may madidisgrasya, naniniwala ako, kapag madidisgrasya ka, madidisgrasya ka. Di ba?” Arwind said. “Kahit  anong ingat mo, sabi ko nga, meron nga dyan natutulog lang sa loob ng bahay, nabagsakan ng eroplano. Nag-iingat o hindi? Ano tawag doon? Aksidente diba? Aksidente. Pag maa-aksidente ka, maa-aksidente ka. Di ka makaka-iwas. Kung sakaling babagsak ako sa Spider-Man dunk, wala akong sisisihin. Baka nakangiti pa akong bumagsak eh. Sa totoo lang, pag nangyari yun,” Santos added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Alab Pilipinas re-ignites in ABL after repulsing Macau

Once more in the continuation of their title defense in the 2018-2019 Asean Basketball League, Alab Pilipinas came off a loss, came through in the next game, and came away with a big-time triumph over another contender. Renaldo Balkman’s game-long brilliance coupled with total team effort in the endgame proved to be the difference on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre as the Filipinos turned down the lights on visiting Macau, 106-99. The two teams were going at it for majority of the matchup until Balkman, PJ Ramos, and Pao Javelona got together for a 10-1 run bridging the third and fourth quarters that built up an 82-73 edge for the home team. Of course, the Black Bears would only battle back and pulled within two points inside the last six minutes only to see Balkman and Ramos connive yet again, this time alongside Ray Parks Jr., Ethan Alvano, and Caelan Tiongson in a 16-3 answer that re-increased the Alab lead to 106-91. Both the lead and the momentum would remain with them until the final buzzer. In the end, Balkman 37 points, nine rebounds, four steals, and three assists while fellow Puerto Rican reinforcement Ramos contributed his own 21-marker, 14-board double-double. Parks Jr. also did damage with 13 points and 10 assists while point guards Javelona and Alvano merged for 16 markers, 14 dimes, and eight rebounds. This strong showing was nothing but a welcome development as, just five days ago, the Filipinos fell for the second time in the last four games. With the bounce back win, though, the defending champions remained alone atop the leaderboard now at 7-2. On the other hand, Macau dropped to 6-5 in the standings despite the best efforts of Anthony Tucker who had 22 points, 10 assists, and six rebounds to his name. BOX SCORES ALAB PILIPINAS 106 – Balkman 37, Ramos 21, Parks 13, Domingo 13, Javelona 9, Alvano 7, Tiongson 6, Urbiztondo 0, Rosser 0. MACAU BLACK BEARS 99 – Watkins 24, Tucker 22, Yu 20, McKinney 18, Liu 12, King 3, Lai 0. QUARTER SCORES: 20-19, 47-48, 79-73, 106-99. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA: Almazan’s ROS return delayed with ankle injury

Raymond Almazan’s long-awaited return to Rain or Shine has been pushed back. After infamously going AWOL towards the end of last season, Almazan was all set to come back for the Elasto Painters in 2019. However, as RoS got its first win of the season Friday against NLEX in the Philippine Cup, Almazan sat out. He was forced to, as Raymond is dealing with a sprained ankle. “Natapakan ko sa paa si Norbet [Torres] sa practice,” Almazan said. “Panay kaliwa na rin yung tapilok ko dati. Tapos yung mga old injuries ko, nakita sa MRI eh. Alam ko may tumubong bone spur. Sa kakalaro ko siguro, minsan kahit masakit nilalaro ko eh,” he added. Despite his new injury, Almazan assures that he’s fine. If there’s one frustration for him however, is that this new injury came when he was named to be part of the Gilas Pilipinas pool once again. Hopefully, he recovers and gets his conditioning back in time. “Hindi naman siya ganoon kalala,” Almazan said on his injury. “Medyo nakaka-disappoint kasi mabibigyan ng bagong tsansa [on Gilas] tapos bigla na naman injury. Sana talaga makabalik ako ng mabilis. Yun talaga,” he added. — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Kevin Alas sees improvement in NLEX return

Returning NLEX Road Warriors guard Kevin Alas sees that his team and even himself still need fine tuning as the action in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup continues to unravel. Alas, who is playing in his first game since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament last March, came off the bench and contributed 12 points and 4 assists in 29 minutes of playing time. However, his side was not able to carve out a win against the gritty Rain or Shine Elasto Painters side, falling 96-87 at the Cuneta Astrodome Friday evening. “It felt good pero syempre I wanted the win sana kasi we've been doing well sa offseason. They were the better team, personally. But sa akin personally it felt good kasi 8-10 months ako nawala,” said Alas. The team also paraded new big man Poy Erram, who added 10 markers and 5 rebounds to the team. Though it may it may not be impressive numbers in Erram's debut for his new squad, the former Ateneo big man sees opportunity, as he stressed improvement of chemistry with one another. Alas also shared that he was almost sleepless in anticipation of his return, as it was comparable his feelings before his own pro debut some few years back. With his return to the squad, Alas knows he still has a lot to improve upon as he will only get better in time. “I felt comfortable naman kanina. Pero siguro yung hangin ko kulang pa kasi iba yung hangin na nakukuha mo sa practice iba eh so kanina I felt kulang na kulang pa yung hangin ko,” he shared.   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

San Miguel calls out Alaska’s Alex Compton for ‘kawawa ang liga’ remark

MANILA, Philippines---San Miguel cried foul over what it called "unnecessary remarks" by Alaska Aces head coach Alex Compton regarding the Beermen's recruits over the past years. Compton, whose Aces lost three championship series to the Beermen since 2014, said San Miguel's acquisition of three-time scoring champion Terrence Romeo put all the other teams at a disadvantage. "There was San Miguel for three finals, and June Mar Fajardo was always an issue," said Compton in a previous Inquirer report. "Then they added Christian [Standhardinger] and now they added Terrence [Romeo]. Kawawa ang liga." San Miguel rebutted Compton saying that the Aces also traded away "competent play...Keep on reading: San Miguel calls out Alaska’s Alex Compton for ‘kawawa ang liga’ remark.....»»

Rain or Shine rides James Yap’s hot hand to frustrate NLEX

Rain or Shine rode on a vintage performance by James Yap to open its Philippine Cup campaign on a good note, thwarting NLEX, 96-87, Friday in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup at Cuneta Astrodome. Yap turned back the clock, uncorking three straight long bombs to wrest the lead from the Road Warriors in the first half and finish with 20 points and three assists, leading the Elasto Painters in scoring for the first time since pushing them to a semifinals berth July last year. "We had good ball movement, we shared the scoring, and James stepped up big time," said Rain or Shine coach Caloy Garcia.

Embiid, Butler lead 76ers 120-96 rout of Pacers

By Chris Goff, Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Joel Embiid had 22 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists Thursday night (Friday, PHL time) to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to their seventh win in nine games, a 120-96 blowout of the Indiana Pacers. Jimmy Butler added 27 points, eight assists and five boards as Philadelphia shot 53 percent and finished with 38 assists, the most by an Indiana opponent this season. In a matchup of two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference, the 76ers improved to 2-1 in the four-game season series. The road team has won all three games. J.J. Redick contributed 20 points and five assists, and Ben Simmons finished with 11 points, eight assists and eight rebounds. Indiana's starting backcourt of Darren Collison and All-Star Victor Oladipo was limited to 21 combined points on 9-of-30 shooting. What had been a competitive game turned into a rout in the third quarter. The 76ers led 28-25 after the first quarter and 54-48 at halftime, but a quick 8-0 run put them up 66-55 and prompted Pacers coach Nate McMillan to call timeout. Redick hit two three-pointers assisted by handoffs from Embiid, and Embiid scored in the lane during the burst. T.J. McConnell's driving bank shot in the final seconds of the quarter pushed the lead to 15 for the first time. Philadelphia carried that 86-71 advantage to the fourth. Redick's sixth triple made it an 18-point lead. Indiana replied with a 10-0 run, but back-to-back three's from Embiid and his backup, Mike Muscala, quieted the crowd and forced yet another Indiana timeout. Muscala had 11 points and seven rebounds. Indiana, held to 40 percent shooting, never challenged again. Ex-Sixer Thaddeus Young had 27 points and six rebounds. Oladipo ended up with 15 points and seven assists. TIP-INS 76ers: Embiid was third and Butler fifth among Eastern Conference frontcourt players in fan votes for the All-Star Game when the league announced the third set of ballot returns Thursday (Friday, PHL time). Simmons was fourth among guards. ... Listed as questionable to play because of back tightness, Embiid stretched on a foam roller during one rest. Pacers: Reggie Miller, back where he played his entire 18-year NBA career, served as an analyst on TNT's broadcast of the game and took a tour of the Pacers' new practice facility near Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Miller ranks second on the NBA's career three-point list at 2,560, though Stephen Curry is on his heels at 2,313. ... Oladipo was fifth among East guards in All-Star voting as of Thursday (Friday, PHL time). UP NEXT 76ers: Return home to face Oklahoma City on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time).

By Ian Harrison, Associated Press TORONTO (AP) — Pascal Siakam scored the winning basket just before time expired and the Toronto Raptors beat the Phoenix Suns 111-109 on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time). Serge Ibaka put Toronto up 109-107 on a hook shot with 47 seconds left, but Mikal Bridges tied it with a pair of free throws with 13 seconds remaining. Toronto gave the ball to Siakam, whose driving shot bounced off the backboard and fell through the rim as time ran out. The basket was confirmed following a video review.

Kawhi Leonard (rest) sat as the Raptors played the second game of a back-to-back, Lowry was originally expected to rest, but told coach Nick Nurse he wanted to play as he works his way back into shape after missing time with a sore back. The Raptors are an NBA-best 8-1 in the second game of back-to-backs this season. This was their ninth of 12 such sets. Lowry finished with eight assists, giving him 5,002 for his career. He's one of 10 active players to reach the mark. Phoenix was up 78-77 to begin the fourth, but Toronto took the lead at 88-87 when the Suns' Josh Jackson fouled Toronto's Chris Boucher on a dunk with 7:50 to go.

Toronto made both its foul shots and got the ball back, with Lowry hitting a triple to put the Raptors up 95-87. The Raptors made 13-of-20 shots from the field in the first, including shooting 4-of-9 from three-point range, to lead 32-20 after one.

Federer marks 100th match on Rod Laver Arena with 3-set win

By John Pye, Associated Press MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Roger Federer has played on Rod Laver Arena a hundred times and has six Australian Open crowns in his collection of 20 Grand Slam titles. The 37-year-old tennis statesman has developed a loyal following over 20 consecutive visits to the Australian Open for the season-opening major. After beating 21-year-old American Taylor Fritz 6-2, 7-5, 6-2 on Friday on the center court at Melbourne Park, and reaching the Round of 16 at a Grand Slam tournament for the 63rd time, he raised his racket to the crowd. It was not unlike what a batter scoring a century would do to acknowledge 100 at the nearby Melbourne Cricket Ground. He'll next play 20-year-oldStefanos Tsitsipas, who draws a big, vocal crowd to Melbourne Park. "I think I wanted to get out of the blocks quickly. I knew of the threat of Taylor," Federer said. "I think I had extra focus today." Tsitsipas had a 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (7), 6-4 win over Nikoloz Basilashvili earlier on Margaret Court Arena to become the first Greek man to reach the fourth round at multiple majors. He reached the same round at Wimbledon last year. Big sections of Greeks sang songs and waved the blue and white flag and scarves in the crowd. Melbourne has the highest concentration of Greek people of any city outside of Greece, and is getting a lot of attention. "I'm delighted," he said. "I feel so comfortable. I feel like playing at home. "It's exciting to have such an atmosphere. I never get to play with so many Greek people supporting me ... and, and, and, Australians!" While rain prevented early play on outside courts at Melbourne Park for the first 2 ½ hours of Day 5, matches went ahead on the show courts. At one stage, Greek fans had to split their time between the adjoining Rod Laver and Margaret Court Arenas. There was no split loyalties on Rod Laver, where local favorite Ash Barty became the first player through to the fourth round a 7-5, 6-1 win over Maria Sakkari. It was first time a Greek man and woman have advanced to the third round at the same Grand Slam tournament since 1936. Barty continued the so-called "Barty Party" by ending Sakkari's run, and will play either former champion Maria Sharapova or defending champion Caroline Wozniacki in the next round. In the only other completed match by early afternoon, 2010 Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych beat No. 18-seeded Diego Schwartzman 5-7, 6-3, 7-5, 6-4. Berdych, who has reached the quarterfinals or better in seven of his previous eight trips to Melbourne Park, will meet either 2009 champion Rafael Nadal or local favorite Alex de Minaur in the next round......»»

Murray, Jokic lead Nuggets to 135-105 rout of Bulls

By Pat Graham, Associated PRess DENVER (AP) — Jamal Murray scored 22 of his 25 points in the third quarter, Nikola Jokic finished two rebounds shy of another triple-double and the Denver Nuggets cruised past Chicago 135-105 on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time) for their 12th straight home win over the Bulls. Chicago hasn't knocked off the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center since Feb. 8, 2006. The Bulls also remain winless in 2019, with their losing streak stretching to nine in a row. Jokic had 18 points and 11 assists as the Nuggets bounced back from a 142-111 drubbing Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) at the hands of Golden State in a matchup of the top two teams in the Western Conference. Lauri Markkanen scored 27 for a Chicago team that finished up a fruitless five-game trip. The Nuggets showed no residual effects from the lopsided loss to the Warriors, in which they allowed an NBA-record, 51-point first quarter. Denver picked up the defensive intensity from the start and limited the Bulls to 47 points at halftime. Denver led by as many as 40. Jokic did a little bit of everything, including a move where he went around the waist with the ball to avoid a defender and drew a foul while making the shot. That kicked up chants of "M-V-P!" The seven-footer from Serbia didn't have his best shooting night, though, missing several easy baskets in finishing 6-of-18 from the field. Bulls coach Jim Boylen took a "charge" late in the first quarter, when Torrey Craig fell on top of him after tumbling out of bounds. The ball was awarded to Chicago. TIP-INS Bulls: Rookie F Wendell Carter Jr. was ruled out with a sprained left thumb. He's day-to-day. ... G Zach LaVine was held to eight points, well below his average of 23.2. Nuggets: G Will Barton missed the game for personal reasons. ... G Gary Harris returned after missing five games with hamstring tightness and scored 14 points in 19 minutes as the Nuggets had seven players in double figures. ... Denver hit a season-high 20 three-pointers. KEEPING THEM FRESH Nuggets coach Michael Malone has been curtailing practices to keep his team fresh, especially in light of all their recent injuries. "I don't want to leave our fight in the gym and have nothing left in games," he said. STEPPING UP Boylen appreciated Kris Dunn taking accountability for his less-than-stellar play in a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers earlier in the week. Dunn had six points and five turnovers against the Lakers. "He took it on the chest that he's got to play better for us to be successful. I'm just proud of him," Boylen said. "What we're striving for is to play better basketball and to own the 'Bulls' across our chest." UP NEXT Bulls: Host Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). Nuggets: Finish a four-game homestand Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) against Cleveland......»»

"Do you really like eating this? Gusto mo ba talaga 'yung lasa?" I asked while I dipped the sizzling beef slice into the cheese sauce. "Hmmm, sakto lang," he said. "I just go here because I like seeing you happy." It has been like this for eight years. Over that course, I often have the final say in everything -- what we would eat, what you would buy, where we would go, when we would meet. Almost all the whys and hows of our relationship are based on him waiting for me to decide on things. I sometimes give him answers but most of the time, I keep him guessing.
