Lillard scores 24, Blazers hold off NBA-best Raptors 128-122

By Anne M. Peterson, Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Damian Lillard had 24 points and the Portland Trail Blazers snapped a two-game slide with a confidence-boosting 128-122 victory over the NBA-leading Toronto Raptors on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time). Zach Collins scored 16 points and Seth Curry added a season-high 13, including three key tbhree-pointers at the start of the fourth quarter. Both were part of a Portland bench that outscored Toronto's reserves 58-26. Kawhi Leonard returned after missing two games and had 28 points for the Raptors (23-8), who played without All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry. Danny Green added 19 points and 11 rebounds, matching his season high with five triples. Portland led by 16 in the fourth quarter but Leonard and C.J. Miles made consecutive three's to pull the Raptors to 117-113 with 2:44 left. Lillard hit a three-pointer for Portland before Leonard had another three and Fred VanVleet made a layup to get Toronto to 120-118. CJ McCollum and Al Farouq-Aminu answered with consecutive three's to extend Portland's lead to 126-118 with just under a minute to go. Leonard dunked on the other end, but the Raptors couldn't get any closer. Portland was in first place in the Western Conference after beating Washington on the road back on Nov. 18 (Nov. 19, PHL time) to improve to 11-5. But the team lost eight of 11 going into Friday night's (Saturday, PHL time) game to tumble into ninth in the conference. The Raptors, meanwhile, had lost just three previous games on the road this season. The victory snapped a six-game Portland losing streak to the Raptors. Lowry sat out with a left thigh bruise. VanVleet started in his place and finished with 21 points. Lowry led the Raptors with 23 points in a 113-93 win over Golden State on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). The victory was costly, however. Jonas Valanciunas dislocated his thumb in the game and required surgery. He will be in a cast for the next four weeks. Valanciunas was averaging 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds a game. Portland was coming off a pair of losses on the road to Houston and Memphis. The Blazers went up 42-31 in the first half after Meyers Leonard's alley-oop dunk from Evan Turner. Portland led by as many as 13 and went into the break in front 58-50. Leonard, who was 0-for-5 from the field in the first half, had eight points to open the third quarter and his jumper got the Raptors to 59-64. But Leonard picked up his fourth foul later in the quarter and went to the bench for a while. OG Anunoby's jumper closed the Raptors to 82-80 but Collins answered with a three-pointer for the Blazers. After Portland had a 91-89 edge going into the fourth, Curry made a pair of three-pointers and the Blazers pushed the lead to 101-90. Curry hit another triple to give Portland a 107-93 advantage. TIP-INS Raptors: Former Oregon Ducks forward Chris Boucher was called up from the G-League on Thursday (Friday, PHL time). He will help fill the void created by Valanciunas' absence. ... It was the third of a four-game road trip for Toronto. Trail Blazers: It was Portland's third straight win at home. ... There was a sizable contingent of Raptors fans and several Canadian flags at the Moda Center. One group sang along loudly to the Canadian national anthem before the game. UP NEXT Raptors: Play at Denver on Sunday (Monday, PHL time). Trail Blazers: Portland has a one-game road trip to play the Clippers on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time)......»»

Harris has 27 and Nuggets edge Blazers 113-112

By Anne M. Peterson, Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Gary Harris, who had missed Denver’s last two games with a sore left ankle, scored 27 points and the Nuggets won their fifth straight game by edging the Portland Trail Blazers 113-112 on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time). Paul Millsap added 22 points for the Nuggets, who led by as many as 17 points but nearly squandered it in the frantic final minutes. CJ McCollum had 33 points, but missed a short jumper at the final buzzer as the Blazers came up just short. Jusuf Nurkic added 17 points and 11 rebounds for Portland, which has lost four of its last five games. The Blazers started to chip away at Denver’s lead late in the third quarter. McCollum’s jumper got Portland within 98-97 with 6:04 left but Monte Morris answered with a three-pointer for the Nuggets and the Blazers couldn’t get any closer until Nurkic’s basket with 1:30 left counted on a goaltending call to close the gap to 108-106. McCollum added step-back jumper to tie it at 108 with less than a minute left. Jamal Murray made a pair of free throws for Denver before McCollum came through again with a layup to re-tie it with 37.1 seconds left — but Harris nailed a corner three-pointer to put the Nuggets in front 113-110. McCollum dunked on the other end and Murray was called out of bounds after the inbound to give Portland back the ball. After a review, the call was overturned. The game clock was re-set to 6.9 seconds and Murray was again called out of bounds on the inbound, but McCollum’s jumper at the buzzer was off to end it. It was the first of a five-game road trip for the Nuggets, who were coming off of a 117-85 victory at home over the L.A. Lakers. Harris hit a three-pointer that capped a 14-2 run that put the Nuggets in front 28-17 late in the first quarter. Denver led by as many as 14 points in the opening period. Meyers Leonard had an emphatic dunk over Mason Plumlee as Portland struggled to close the gap. McCollum got the Blazers within single digits with a layup that made it 53-45, but Harris’ layup and free throw extended Denver’s lead again. Millsap had 16 first-half points and the Nuggets went into the break with a 68-53 lead. Portland was hurt by 10 turnovers. Nurkic had a tip-in that got Portland within 79-72 with just over five minutes left in the third. Damian Lillard’s three-pointer closed the gap to 88-85, but Trey Lyles answered with his own long triple for Denver. The Trail Blazers snapped a three-game losing streak with a 115-112 victory over Orlando on Wednesday. Lillard had 41 points in the game, including a franchise-record 10 three-pointers. But against the Nuggets he was cold at the start, and had just five first-half points and finished with 15. TIP-INS Nuggets: It was the first of four games between the two teams this season. Denver won last year’s series 3-1. ... The Nuggets held opponents under 100 points in each of the previous three games. Trail Blazers: Nurkic played for the Nuggets for more than two seasons before he was traded to Portland in early 2017. ... Portland has lost four straight to the Nuggets.

Cargo Movers collect fifth straight win

BACOOR CITY --- F2 Logistics banked on its collective effort to overcome a hard-fighting Cignal squad, 25-22, 23-25, 25-14, 25-17, and stretch its winning streak in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Thursday at the Bacoor Strike Gym here. Ara Galang and Majoy Baron led the attack of the Cargo Movers, who annexed its fifth straight win. Smart made short work of Foton, 25-21, 25-19, 25-18, to notch its first back-to-back wins. Despite missing setter Jasmine Nabor and middle blockers Celine Domingo and Czarina Carandang due to their respective academic commitments, the troika of Aiko Urdas, Grethcel Soltones and Jerrili Malabanan powered the Giga Hitters to earn their second win in the second round to improve to 4-5. Urdas unleashed 18 points off 16 kills and a pair of service aces. Soltones, who struggled with five points in their past game against Sta. Lucia, had 13 hits and as many as excellent receptions while Malabanan added 12 markers and had 10 digs. Galang dropped 18 points built on 16 spikes and a pair of aces laced with 10 excellent receptions while Baron unloaded eight kills, five blocks and three aces for 16 points as F2 Logistics improved to 7-2 win-loss record to claim the solo second spot. Cha Cruz-Behag was also instrumental with 12 points and 23 digs while Aby Maraño added 10 markers for F2 Logistics, which finished the job in just one hour and 36 minutes. Fajardo made 45 excellent sets as their team continued to miss Kianna Dy for the second straight game due to knee soreness and the wake of her grandmother in Davao. “I’m happy even we lost the second set because somehow I saw the determination of my players to win the game,” F2 Logistics head coach Ramil de Jesus said. “Even we’re not complete, they were composed.” The Cargo Movers fought back from 17-24 deficit in the second set and trimmed it down to 23-24. But Mylene Paat nailed a kill to end the frame and level the match to one-set apiece before the Cargo Movers recovered their groove en route to the victory. Cignal managed to keep F2 Logistics within striking distance in all departments as it had a 12-10 advantage in blocking, trailed only three in attacking, 42-45 and had 10 team aces each. The Cargo Movers also played more fluid with only 14 errors while the HD Spikers committed 33 miscues. Paat had 18 points while Rachel Anne Daquis delivered 15 hits, including 15 excellent receptions, for the HD Spikers, who dropped to a 4-5 card......»»

Lillard has Portland-record 10 3s in 115-112 win over Magic

By Anne M. Peterson, Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Damian Lillard had 41 points, including a franchise-record 10 3-pointers, and the Portland Trail Blazers held off the Orlando Magic 115-112 on Wednesday night. Jusuf Nurkic added 16 points and 13 rebounds as the Blazers stopped a season-high three-game slide. Lillard surpassed the previous Portland record of nine 3s that he shared with Nicolas Batum. Nikola Vucevic had 20 points and eight rebounds for the Magic, who have lost four of their last five games. Portland pushed its lead to 108-98 on Evan Turner's layup with just over five minutes to go, but Evan Fournier hit a pair of 3-pointers and Jonathan Isaac added a layup to close the gap to 108-106. Jonathan Simmons made two free throws to tie it, but CJ McCollum responded with a 3-pointer for the Blazers. Fournier had a step-back jumper to get Orlando within a point before McCollum missed a pair of free throws with about two minutes to go. Lillard's floater with 55 seconds gave Portland a 113-110 lead. There was some confusion at the end of the game after what was described as a game-clock malfunction prompted a video review. Officials put 0.9 seconds on the clock but Orlando's inbounds was off and time ran out. Orlando, playing the fourth of a six-game trip, was without Aaron Gordon, who was sidelined by a sore lower back. Gordon is averaging 16.1 points and 7.3 rebounds this season. He left Monday's 116-110 loss at Golden State in the third quarter with back spasms. Isaac replaced Gordon in the starting lineup against Portland. Vucevic scored 15 in the first half to help Orlando to a 63-55 lead at the break. Nik Stauskas had 15 early points for the Blazers. Trailing 82-79, Portland went on a 16-2 run, capped by Lillard's record-breaking 10th 3-pointer, to go up 95-84 going into the fourth quarter. Portland was coming off a 104-100 loss at home to the Clippers on Sunday night. TIP INS Magic: Ross is from Portland and played at Jefferson High School before going to Washington. ... The Magic have dropped five straight to Portland. ... Vucevic fouled out with 13.7 seconds left. Trail Blazers: It was coach Terry Stotts' 400th career win. ... Lillard's seven 3-pointers in the third were a franchise record for a quarter. UP NEXT Magic: Play Friday night at the Phoenix Suns. Trail Blazers: Host the Denver Nuggets on Friday night......»»

Feeling ko parang 60% pa lang ako -- Arellano U hitter Arocha

Last year’s Finals Most Valuable Player Regine Arocha admitted that she’s far from the same explosive player who helped Arellano University capture back-to-back titles in the NCAA women’s volleyball competition. The hitter, considered to be the Lady Chiefs’ leader this season after the departure of Jovielyn Prado, Anne Esguerra and Andrea Marzan, felt that she’s still adjusting to her role. It doesn’t help that she’s nursing a nagging sore back and mild leg pain.     “Sa ngayon feeling ko parang 60% pa lang ako,” said Arocha, also the Season 93 Best Opposite Spiker, Tuesday in the Lady Chiefs’ 25-17, 20-25, 25-18, 18-25, 16-14, win against College of St. Benilde at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Arocha finished with 14 points but Arellano U head coach Obet Javier wasn’t satisfied with his wards game despite the Lady Chiefs’ 2-0 record.    “Sinabi ko kay Regine na talagang kailangan mong buhatin ang team mo,” said Javier, who gave his hitter a tongue-lashing during Arellano’s fourth set collapse. “Aminin man natin o hindi talagang siya ang sinasandalan ng team, kahit ako siya ang sinasandalan ko.” “Lagi ko lang nire-remind sa kanya na kapag ikaw ang nawala, talagang mawawala ang team dahil ikaw ang tinitingala ng mga mga bata,” he added. Arocha apologized for her lapses.   “Kaya sobrang nagso-sorry ako kay coach,” a teary-eyed Arocha told Javier during their postgame interview. “Kaya gaya ng sinasabi ko kay coach, ‘Wait ka lang. Darating din tayo dyan’” With her early struggles, Arocha was thankful to her teammates for stepping up. Against the Lady Blazers, the only team which defeated the Lady Chiefs last year, Season 93 Rookie of the Year Necole Ebuen dropped 22 points while Princess Bello had 18 markers. “Sa laro alam ko po kulang pa ako eh,” said Arocha. “Kulang pa yung ipinapakita kong laro kaya sobrang laking pasasalamat ko sa teammates ko na nagagampanan nila ang responsibilidad nila. Na kapag wala ako nandyan sila.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: Lady Chiefs open three-peat bid

Arellano University begins its hunt for its third straight women’s title on Friday against Jose Rizal University in a rematch of last year’s Final Four when the NCAA Season 94 volleyball opens shop at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Meanwhile, after a historic Final Four appearance last season, the Lady Bombers will need to step up their game to fill in the scoring void left by Season 93 MVP Shola Alvarez. Head coach Mia Tioseco will pin her hopes on key holdovers Dolly Versoza, Karen Montojo and Christine Ebuenga for another successful run. In men’s play, last year’s runner up Chiefs battle the Heavy Bombers at 9:30 a.m. after the 8:00 a.m. clash between the Braves and Lights Bombers in juniors division.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Petron stays unscathed, extends win streak to six

Petron tightened its grip of the top spot in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Tuesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Blaze Spikers made short work of struggling Sta. Lucia, 25-9, 25-12, 25-6,  to remain on top of the heap. Mika Reyes finished with a game-high 11 points, including five aces while Ging Balse-Pabayo added 10 markers for the Blaze Spikers, who captured their sixth win in as many games. Petron had a dominant performance as it registered twice as much Sta. Lucia’s attacks (37-15) and blocks (5-0) while capitalizing on the Lady Realtors’ poor reception with 12 aces. Meanwhile, veteran Mina Aganon re-asserted her dominance as she towed the Tornadoes back to the winning track after dominating Cocolife, 25-23, 26-28, 25-21, 25-19. The Tornadoes moved to solo second spot with a 5-1 win-loss card. Foton coach Aaron Valdez said their previous loss to F2 Logistics fueled them to work harder and regain their bearings. “I think our loss to F2 Logistics made us better as a team,” said Velez, who took the helm from Rommel Abella in the off-season. “Despite the loss, the team still radiated positive energy and I did not look at it (loss) as a setback.” He added that it was a wakeup call that gave them a chance to identify their weaknesses, especially now that towering Jaja Santiago and Dindin Manabat are seeing action in the prestigious V. Premier League in Japan. “It served as a wake up call for the team for us to improve on our weaknesses,” he added. “I’m happy that my players responded although they were hesitant at first, it’s normal, but I’m really glad that they exerted effort rather than nothing.” Carla Sandoval also had 18 points while playmaker Gyzelle Sy registered 24 excellent sets for Foton in a match that lasted for two hours and 15 minutes. Filipino-American spiker Kalei Mau led the way with 21 points, 16 digs and six excellent receptions for the Asset Managers, who absorbed their fifth loss in six matches. In the night cap, Cignal walloped its sister-team Smart, 25-20, 25-20, 25-20, for a 4-3 slate. Rachel Anne Daquis and Mylene Paat registered 15 points each and combined for 24 of the HD Spikers' 41 attack points. The Giga Hitters dropped to 2-4 mark......»»

PVL: Angels complete semis cast

PetroGazz barely broke a sweat in sweeping hapless Adamson-Akari, 25-21, 25-9, 25-15, Sunday to complete the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference semifinals cast at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Angels started out flat but was quick to recover to claim their third straight win for an 8-5 win-loss record while adding more woes to the winless Lady Falcons. PetroGazz joined BanKo (10-3), Ateneo-Motolite (10-4) and Creamline (9-3) in the best-of-three Final Four after completing a back-to-back weekend schedule sweep. The Jerry Yee-mentored squad defeated Ateneo-Motolite in four sets last Saturday.  The Angels’ victory booted out Pocari Sweat-Air Force, which missed the semis for the first time in franchise history, and Tacloban, which are tied at 6-7 slates. Jessey de Leon poured 13 of her 14 points on attacks to highlight the Angels' 46-kill performance. Cherry Nunag and Alyssa Layug added 13 and 11 markers, respectively, for PetroGazz.   The Lady Falcons, who fielded Eli Soyud for the first time after recovering from a knee injury but still played without Bernadette Flora (back spasm) and Lea Anne Perez (ankle sprain), absorbed its 12th straight loss in as many games. No Adamson-Akari player scored in double figures with rookie Trisha Genesis posting six points while Soyud, who only played in the third set, and Chrislyn Uy added five markers each.           --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Fighting Warays remain in semis contention

Tacloban kept its semifinals hopes alive after hurdling listless and undermanned Adamson-Akari, 25-11, 25-12, 25-19, Saturday in the Premier Volleyball Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre. The Fighting Warays waylaid the limping Lady Falcons, who played without injured Bernadette Flora and Lea Ann Perez, to improve their record to 6-7 and remain in contention for the last best-of-three Final Four berth. Dimdim Pacres wreaked havoc with 14 attacks, two aces and a kill block for 17 points to lead Tacloban to its second straight win. Skipper Jovielyn Prado got 13 markers while Anne Esguerra and Heather Guino-o combined for eight markers for the Fighting Warays, who burned Adamson-Akari with 45 attacks. “Nandoon pa rin ang chance pero sabi ko nga sa mga players na tuluy-tuloy natin hindi tayo dapat mag-relax hanggang sa huli ipanalo,” said Tacloban coach Nes Pamilar. “Kasi maraming pwedeng mangyari, pwedeng two-way o three-way tie pa eh. Kaya hangga’t sabi ko nga hangga’t maaari yung magandang magagawa namin every game gawin na namin.” The Fighting Warays are now a full game ahead of Pocari Sweat-Air Force (5-7) and breathing down the necks of PetroGazz (6-5), who are still playing Ateneo-Motolite as of posting time. Adamson-Akari was again riddled with a string of injuries with Flora nursing a back spasm and Perez down with a right ankle sprain while Chiara Permentilla rode the bench the whole game. The Lady Falcons fell to 0-11 slate. Trisha Genesis and Krich Macaslang combined for only 13 markers for Adamson-Akari, which gave away 22 points off errors.       ---    Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
