Dave Peñalosa stops Mexican bet in 4 rounds for WBO Oriental featherweight crown

Mexico's Marcos Cardenas was supposed to serve as a tough challenge for undefeated featherweight Dave Pealosa. Cardenas appeared to be good as advertised until Pealosa decided to pour it on en route to a fourth round stoppage to win the vacant WBO Oriental featherweight title in the main event of ESPN5's fight card. "All my hard work bore fruit after winning the title," Pealosa, who had trouble making weight but showed no effects of it throughout the bout, said in Filipino. "I just wanted to be patient. I'm happy that he showed a good fight and the fans were not disappointed." Pealosa, son of former two-time world champion Dodie Boy, was in his usual relentless self from ...Keep on reading: Dave Peñalosa stops Mexican bet in 4 rounds for WBO Oriental featherweight crown.....»»

Reliable as ever, Patriots’ Julian Edelman wins Super Bowl MVP

ATLANTA (AP) --- Julian Edelman was forced to watch only as a spectator as his disappointed New England Patriots teammates trudged off the field a year ago as Super Bowl losers. Catch after catch in this one, Tom Brady's favorite wide receiver helped make them winners again. "It's pretty surreal," Edelman said, shaking his head. "Tough times don't last, tough people do. I preach that, and, I guess you have to live to it." Edelman certainly did Sunday night, earning Super Bowl MVP honors with 10 receptions for 141 yards while helping lift the Patriots to a 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams. "My name was called," he said. "I was asked to make a couple plays and we were...Keep on reading: Reliable as ever, Patriots’ Julian Edelman wins Super Bowl MVP.....»»

PBA: Ahanmisi gets “Tiu-torial” as he takes over as no. 1 ROS guard

With Chris Tiu retired, Maverick Ahanmisi has taken over as the true no. 1 point guard for Rain or Shine. So far in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup, Ahanmisi has not disappointed, helping drive the Elasto Painters to a strong 4-1 start. “This is one of the most pristine conferences obviously, the all-Filipino so you want to make a statement that we are one of the better all-Filipino teams and we just want to stay aggressive,” Ahanmisi said. “We just want to keep the aggressive activity going,” he added. With Tiu enjoying his retirement from basketball, it’s up to Ahanmisi to run the Rain or Shine system to perfection. But before he left, Tiu made sure to give Ahanmisi his basketball secrets. “When he left, he told me specific things to do. He thought of me a lot when he was here and I think I just learned from him,” Ahanmisin said. “As you guys know, Chris is not the most athletic person out there but he's a really smart player and I think he's passed that on to me. I think I've really learned a lot from here,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Heat hang on late, top Grizzlies

MIAMI --- Shelvin Mack drove on Dwyane Wade, with the game on the line. Mack's layup attempt never got near the rim. Only a few days shy of his 37th birthday, Wade can still block shots ---even in the biggest momentsof a game. Justise Winslow scored 26 points, Wade delivered the block and won the ensuing jump ball with 4 seconds left, and the Miami Heat beat the Memphis Grizzlies 112-108 on Saturday night. "If he would have won that jump ball, I would have been highly disappointed in myself," said Wade, whose birthday is Thursday. "I was very confident going into that jump ball that I could muster up just enough to get it." He had just enough.

James Harden rallies Rockets in OT to beat Warriors 135-134

By Janie McCauley, Associated Press OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — James Harden hit a contested three-pointer with 2.7 seconds left in overtime and finished with his second triple-double of the week and fifth straight 40-point game, rallying the Houston Rockets past the Golden State Warriors 135-134 in a thriller between Western Conference powers Thursday night (Friday, PHL time) for their sixth straight victory. Kevin Durant's long three-pointer missed as the buzzer sounded in what will go down as one of the best games this regular season — a rematch of the seven-game Western Conference finals won by two-time defending champion Golden State. JAMES HARDEN WINS IT FOR THE @HOUSTONROCKETS FROM DOWNTOWN! 😱😱 Final in Oakland:#Rockets 135#DubNation 134 pic.twitter.com/SOJ374U8P0 — NBA (@NBA) January 4, 2019 Stephen Curry put the Warriors ahead with 23.1 seconds remaining in OT on the way to 35 points — a basket that shouldn't have counted because Durant was clearly out of bounds when he flung the ball back in. Harden, however, had one more improbable, acrobatic moment still in him. He released the ball with at least four hands in his face for the game-winner. The reigning MVP finished with 44 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds, while Clint Capela contributed 29 points and 21 rebounds for Houston. Harden also hit three-pointers at the 3:52 and 2:02 marks of OT in a game featuring dazzling displays on both ends by some of the game's biggest stars. Klay Thompson made a go-ahead layup with 40.6 seconds left in the extra period, then Harden tied it at 132 on a pair of free throws with 33.5 seconds left. Durant added 26 points and seven rebounds. Harden also had a triple-double Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) against Memphis of 43 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists but he was disappointed with nine turnovers he thought gave the Grizzlies too many transition opportunities. Including his 50-point game Dec. 13 (Dec. 14, PHL time) against the Lakers, Harden has scored at least 30 in 11 straight. Warriors coach Steve Kerr's simple message about defending Harden, who went to the line 27 times Monday: "Don't foul him!" Harden shot five free throws in the first quarter Thursday (Friday, PHL time) and nine in all. His jumper with 5:37 left in regulation cut Golden State's lead to 112-111. He also got the Rockets close by knocking down two three-pointers and assisting on another basket in the final 1:26 of the third as Houston cut its deficit to 98-92 going into the final quarter. Thompson scored 26 points and hit consecutive three-pointers late in the first half. After struggling to find his stroke from deep, Thompson is 10-for-17 on three-pointers the past three games. With his first triple at the seven-minute mark of the opening period, Durant became the 32nd player in NBA history to reach 22,000 points. Falling backward as he released the ball over Harden, Durant swished a three with 59.2 seconds left in the first half. The cold-shooting Rockets fell behind 70-53 at halftime. Houston was just 6-of-23 from long range, 3-for-9 by Harden, while the Warriors shot 62.8 percent. TIP-INS Rockets: F James Ennis, who had been questionable with a strained right hamstring, returned after missing the previous 10 games. ... G Eric Gordon sat out a second straight game with a bruised right knee. Warriors: C Kevon Looney scored in double figures for the ninth time this season. ... Durant is one of six active players in the 22,000-point club, joining LeBron James, Dirk Nowitzki, Carmelo Anthony, Vince Carter and Dwyane Wade. ... Durant has 12 straight games with 20 or more points. ... Golden State dropped to 10-3 when dishing out 30 or more assists. RUN TMC As part of the final season at Oracle Arena, the Warriors honored the "Run TMC" era featuring the trio of Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin. They were recognized on the big screen during a first-quarter timeout and Hardaway was shown sitting courtside next to Warriors owner Joe Lacob.

Vic Manuel left frustrated by knee pain as Aces go down 0-2 in PBA Finals

MANILA, Philippines---Hobbled and in pain, Vic Manuel won't let anything stop him from helping Alaska get its first win against Magnolia in the PBA Governors' Cup finals. But the power forward's injury hasn't helped the Aces' cause as they lost for a second straight, 77-71, in Game 2 to for a 0-2 hole in the best-of-seven series. Manuel said he is suffering from iliotibial band syndrome in his right knee that is bringing him a stinging sensation whenever he moves. "It's tightening up and I felt the pain earlier so I asked to be subbed out in the fourth quarter," said Manuel in Filipino Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Wilder sees missed opportunity in first viewing of Fury draw

By Brian Mahoney, Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — Deontay Wilder fired his right hand out from his body, demonstrating the way he should have punched Tyson Fury. He was frustrated with the referee. Disappointed in Floyd Mayweather Jr. Angry with Showtime's scorer. Mostly, Wilder was mad at himself. Five days later, the WBC heavyweight champion was still bothered by the way he fought in his draw with Fury on Saturday night in Los Angeles. "Fury was everything I expected him to be. It's not what Fury did, it's what I didn't do," Wilder said Thursday. "You seen the best of Fury, you didn't see the best of me. "I wanted to end the show with a devastating knockout and I got too excited." Wilder (40-0-1) watched the full fight for the first time during a lunch that was used to provide footage for an all-access look at the fight that will run Saturday after Showtime airs the replay. He was still amazed that Fury got up from a powerful combination that sent him flat on his back in the 12th round, but believed Fury (27-0-1) benefited from a break from referee Jack Reiss. "Look at him! Niiiiine," Wilder said, imitating what he felt was a dramatically long count from Reiss to allow Fury to get up and finish the fight. Still, Wilder believed the knockdown, his second of the fight, had allowed him to clinch the victory. He said he didn't regret not trying harder to finish Fury afterward, because he thought the win was secured. "If it was close, that knockdown, I feel like it put me on top," Wilder said. Only one of the judges agreed, with one scoring the bout for Fury and another having it 113-113. That was much closer than Showtime scorer Steve Farhood, who gave only one of the first eight rounds to Wilder on his card that fans watching the fight could see after each round. "Someone has got to explain to me why this is supposedly a Tyson Fury round," promoter Lou DiBella said after watching the end of one of those early rounds. Mayweather was even harsher to the champion, giving him none of the first five rounds when he was interviewed in the arena between rounds. Wilder said he had no relationship with Mayweather but implied the retired former champion was insecure any time there was too much attention on another American fighter. Wilder agreed it was a close, tough fight to score, but only because he allowed it to be. Headlining a pay-per-view for the first time on perhaps the biggest night in years for American heavyweight boxing, Wilder wanted to deliver something spectacular and the moment got to him. "I abandoned the whole game plan," Wilder said. "That was a mistake on my behalf. Like I said, I just wanted to get in there and just knock him out. I mean I wanted to end the show in a devastating way. That was the whole thing going through my mind. I couldn't clear it out of my mind for some reason. I couldn't. "The atmosphere was so heavy and I finally had the attention that I deserved and there was only one thing on my mind, was to knock him out. But that's what I do anyway. It was crazy. Every time I was going back to the corner I was telling myself just calm down, but I couldn't get out of that element." He became animated watching the replay when he saw times a straight punch would have caught Fury, who kept trying to duck down low, but instead rushed an over-the-top shot that missed. "See that ... right there! All I had to do was straight 'pop!'" Wilder said. "He's right here and I'm still overthrowing it while he's at a pause right here, bending over." But the mistakes could provide a learning experience for a rematch Wilder insists will happen. He said he will try to gain a significant amount of weight, with a goal of 245 pounds after he came in at 209 on Saturday. He's open to fighting Fury anywhere, even in Britain, though his preferences would be Las Vegas or Barclays Center in New York. Wilder couldn't take Fury out the first time, but figures he at least did enough damage to soften him up for the second. "I don't think he's going to be the same, especially going into a rematch and getting hit like that," Wilder said. "I know my power and I know what I can do.".....»»

Alaska lacked effort in Game 1 loss to Magnolia, says Alex Compton

In a finals series featuring two evenly-matched teams in Alaska and Magnolia, Aces head coach Alex Compton felt "effort" made the big difference in Game 1 on Wednesday night. Unfortunately for Compton, it was the Hotshots who wanted to win more. "I thought we just got totally outworked," a disappointed Compton told reporters after the Aces lost, 100-84. "Something I feel that's been the trademark, the hallmark of our team has been effort. I just said in the locker room, I felt like we gave an 85 percent effort and Magnolia gave 100 percent effort and the score was a hundred to 84, I was about right."

Defiant Guiao keeps fate in Gilas World Cup bid: 'Alam ko kaya pa natin'

MANILA, Philippines --- When Yeng Guiao took over Gilas Pilipinas, his "contract" was to run until the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China. However, there's a very good chance that the Philippines might not even make it there. If that's the case, coach Yeng will step down from his post on his own. "When I took on this job, I stated very clearly that my objective and our goal is to bring this team to the World Cup," Guiao said. "I also stated that if I cannot bring this team to the World Cup, I'll walk away," he added. After Monday's crushing loss to Iran, Gilas falls out of Group F's top-3 for the first time. The Philippines has an even 5-5 record following back-to-back defeats and the country trails Australia (9-1), Iran (7-3), and Japan (6-4) in the standings. Only the top-3 move on to the World Cup and the Boomers have already secured their slot. The best fourth placed team also moves on but the fate of the two teams that happen to place in the top-4 in both groups will rely on China's final placing. As hosts, the Chinese have a sure slot in the 2019 World Cup. If China makes it to the top-3 of Group E, both fourth placed teams move on. China is currently no. 3 in Group E with a 6-4 mark. Still, while a chance to mak it to the World Cup is ever present, it doesn't take away from the disaster that was Gilas Pilipinas' final two home games in these Asian Qualifiers. "Well, of course we're disappointed, not just about the match but for the whole window," Guiao said after the Iran loss, which came days after the shock upset at the hands of Kazakhstan. "I still feel this is a strong team. I still feel if the chances are slimmer going to the World Cup but I still feel we can do it. Alam kong kaya pa rin natin," Guiao added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Gilas Pilipinas’ ‘lack of maturity’ showed in heartbreaking loss to Iran

For a moment, it looked like Gilas Pilipinas had it, but only to watch it slip away when it mattered most in a game it badly needed against a regional rival in Iran before a stunned hometown crowd. "Well, of course we're disappointed, not just about the match but for the whole window. We knew Iran was a tough team even without (Nikkha) Bahrami and (Hamed) Haddadi. We knew that they were a big team,"national team head coach Yeng Guiao said during the post-game press conference Monday night.

‘Dejected’ Gilas has ‘no one to blame but ourselves,’ says Norwood

Gilas Pilipinas had a forgettable fourth quarter against Iran on Monday night. The worst part even came down the stretch--in the last three minutes--where the Philippines only made one out of its eight attempts from the field, missed two free throws and had a pair of errant passes. June Mar Fajardo came up empty at the line that would've given the Filipinos a three-point cushion with 2:20 left while Scottie Thompson threw one of the two bad passes with under 30 seconds to go when Gilas was only down by three. Gilas captain Gabe Norwood stressed there's no point in putting the blame on anyone else but themselves.
