Yeng drops the hammer, hints at player movement for NLEX

Yeng Guiao has had enough. His transition to NLEX has been off to an awful start with the Road Warriors slumping to a 2-7 record in the Philippine Cup. Worse, all seven of their defeats are by double digits. With their latest setback to Phoenix Wednesday, Guiao dropped the hammer on his squad, delivering his final 'sermon' for the conference. 'Sabi ko nga, ito na yung huling sabon ko for this conference eh, kaya tinagalan ko na. Tsaka yung pag-sabon ko, baka mga isang linggo siguro sila nagbabanlaw dyan para maalis yung sabon na yan. At least magtanda sila,' Guiao said. 'I think that’s always been part of the gauntlet that they have to go through with our culture. We’re trying to establish a culture, and mayroon talagang masasala,' the fiery mentor added. Putting together nothing in the Philppine Cup, Guiao also hinted at possible player movement for NLEX. Players that can take his unconventional methods are obviously a priority. 'Itong mga players na ‘to, tinitingnan ko kung sino yung may puso na kaya yung pressure talaga na magpe-peform sila under pressure with the expectations that are put on their shoulders,' Guiao said. 'And at the same time with me yelling and cursing at them, they should be able to perform. So pagkanakapag-perform sila nun, that means karapat-dapat silang ma-retain sa team,' he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

Top-2 teams clash as Beermen takes on Elasto Painters

More than halfway through the 2017 Philippine Cup, the no. 1 and no. 2 teams finally meet on the court as the PBA resumes Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena. Coming in with an incredible six-game winning streak, two-time defending champion San Miguel Beer test the steady Rain or Shine Elasto Painters in the main game at 7:00 p.m. Already assured of a quarterfinals berth, the champs continue their chase for a playoff bonus while also trying to improve upon their league-best 7-1 mark. Meanwhile, Rain or Shine looks to also make its case in the quarterfinals but a win might win more for the Elasto Painters as James Yap and co. look to hold off a horde of teams in the middle of the standings. At 5-2, ROS is only currently one game ahead of three teams sitting at third and only 1.5 gameas up of two teams sitting at .500. A victory over the Beermen also means that the Elasto Painters can still make a play for the no. 1 overall seed. In the first game at 4:15 p.m., both Globalport and NLEX hope to build on their respective victories to the new year. The Batang Pier are one of the three teams which are one game behind the Elasto Painters and a win, coupled with the Beermen also emerging victorious, would put Globalport tied for second heading into the weekend. Meanwhile, the Road Warriors push for their first winning streak under the Yeng Guiao era after finally stoppid a five-game slide last week. .....»»

NLEX comes "home" to ambush KaTropa

The answer to NLEX's struggles, at least to the team's horrible five-game losing skid, was found at 'home.' Travelling to the home province of head coach Yeng Guiao, the Road Warriors rode a solid second half to pummel sister team TNT, 110-98, Saturday in the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup at the Angeles University Gym in Angeles, Pampanga. In trouble after the KaTropa erased a 12-point deficit to take a 94-93 lead with 6:13 to go, NLEX went on a 17-4 tear the rest of the way to win only its second game of the new season. The Road Warriors lost their previous five games by double digits before taking care of TNT, improving to 2-5 and leaving idle Mahindra at the bottom of the team standings. After fighting to a stalemate in the first half, NLEX came out firing in the third quarter, leading by as much as 12, 74-62, after an Eric Camson basket. However, in typical TNT fashion, the KaTropa would respond and even take the lead back before the period ended courtesy of a Larry Fonacier trey, 80-78. Carlo Lastimosa showed his scoring prowess by dropping a game-high 22 points for the Road Warriors on 72 percent shooting. Sean Anthony added a double-double and ended up with 13 points and 13 rebounds. TNT lost a golden opportunity to move into solo second with the loss and is now tied with idle Phoenix and Globalport for third place with identical 4-3 cards. Jayson Castro, who is also from Pampanga, once again came off the bench to lead the KaTropa with 17 points. TNT actually got 72 points from its reserves with Mo Tautuaa and Kris Rosales adding 15 points apiece. No TNT starter scored in double figures.   br /> The scores:  NLEX 110 - Lastimosa 22, Anthony 13, Alas 12, Camson 12, Guinto 11, J. Villanueva 7, E. Villanueva 7, Rios 6, Baracael 5, Lanete 4, Taulava 3, Monfort 3, Khobuntin 3, Gotladera 2. TNT 98 - Castro 17, Tautuaa 15, Rosales 15, Fonacier 9, Reyes 7, Rosario 7, De Ocampo 7, Williams 6, Rosser 6, Carey 5, Seigle 4, Golla 0, Pogoy 0, Tamsi 0. Quarters: 24-26, 52-52, 85-81, 110-98 br /> --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

NLEX look to ambush TNT in its "home court"

The answer to NLEX's struggles may be found at 'home.' Losers of five straight games by double digits, the Road Warriors are nowhere near the look of contenders in the Philippines Cup. However, Yeng Guiao's boys can start turning things around Saturday as NLEX battles sister team TNT KaTropa in Guiao's home province of Pampanga. Since beating Alaska in overtime to start the season, NLEX has been on a free-fall, a laundry list of disappointments that included injuries and even a trade demand from veteran big man Asi Taulava. But, as the first out of town game of 2017, the Road Warriors can do their coach proud by taking advantage of what should be a home court advantage for NLEX. Standing in their way of redemption is TNT as the flagship MVP franchise look to keep piling up victories to keep in step with Rain or Shine and San Miguel for that twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals. Winning four of their last five games, the KaTropa have adjusted themselves quite nicely in new head coach Nash Racela's system, making TNT fulfill its tag as preseason favorites. Gametime of the MVP sister act is scheduled at 5:00 p.m. at the Angeles University Foundation in Angeles City, Pampanga. .....»»
