Nets hold off Lakers to extend winning streak to 6 games

By Brian Mahoney, Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — D'Angelo Russell had 22 points and a career high-tying 13 assists against his former team, and the Brooklyn Nets ran the NBA's longest winning streak to six games by beating the Los Angeles Lakers 115-110 on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). Joe Harris added 19 points and Spencer Dinwiddie scored 18 for the Nets, who last won six in a row from March 25 to April 3, 2015. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson finished with 17 points and Jared Dudley made some big baskets down the stretch to score 13. LeBron James bounced back from his lowest-scoring game of the season with 36 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists, but the Lakers finished 1-3 on their road trip. Kyle Kuzma had 22 points and 11 rebounds, while Lonzo Ball scored 23 points. Brooklyn continued its recovery from an eight-game skid by holding on in front of a loud, large crowd that alternated cheering when the Lakers seized the momentum and when the Nets regained it. Brooklyn led 100-87 with 7.5 minutes to play before back-to-back three-pointers by Kuzma and Ball made it 100-93. James then scored inside, blocked a shot on the other end and scored again, capping a 10-0 run. Dudley and Dinwiddie answered with drives, and Dudley hit two more baskets to settle the Nets before Russell's three-pointer made it 113-107 with 22 seconds remaining. D'Angelo Russell's trey to put the @BrooklynNets ahead for good! 🔥🔥#WeGoHard pic.twitter.com/L9Q71Uclnh — NBA (@NBA) December 19, 2018 The Nets had scored 70 points in the first halves of their last two games, and were almost on pace in this one after taking a 33-32 lead after one quarter. They trailed by five with under three minutes left in the half before a 13-3 finishing surge for a 62-57 lead. Brooklyn then used a 12-0 run to turn a two-point edge into its largest lead, going ahead 79-65 on Hollis-Jefferson's three-point play with 7:27 remaining in the third quarter. The Lakers trimmed it to five late in the period on a three-pointer by James and the Nets led 90-83 going to the fourth. James was limited to 13 points on 5-of-16 shooting in a loss to Washington on Sunday and things started rough for him in this one, as Jarrett Allen denied his attempt at a dunk with a sensational block on his first attempt. James was called for traveling the next time he had the ball before finding his groove. TIP-INS Lakers: JaVale McGee missed his second straight game with flu-like symptoms. ... The Lakers were 5-of-6 from three-point range in the first quarter, with Ball going 3-of-3. Then they went 1-for-10 in the second. Nets: G Allen Crabbe missed his third straight game because of a sore right knee. ... The Nets snapped an eight-game skid against West teams with their first win since Nov. 9 (Nov. 10, PHL time) at Denver. HELP ON THE WAY Rajon Rondo (right hand surgery) and Brandon Ingram (sprained left ankle) were recalled from the South Bay Lakers, where they were on rehab assignments. Coach Luke Walton said Ingram was still limited at practice Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) but Rondo wasn't, adding the hope was that both could go full speed when  they rejoin the Lakers in practice on Thursday (Friday, PHL time). Rondo has missed 17 games and Ingram has sat out seven. SINGING STRUGGLES British singer and actress Cynthia Erivo struggled through her performance of the national anthem. She appeared to forget the words at one point and stopped singing. After pausing to refocus, she began again from the start of the song, got a word wrong and then skipped a couple of lines. But the crowd was supportive of her strong finish and gave her a nice ovation afterward. UP NEXT Lakers: Host New Orleans on Friday (Saturday, PHL time).

Nuggets win 7th straight at home by beating Mavs 126-118

By Pat Graham, Associated Press DENVER (AP) — Nikola Jokic had 32 points and 16 rebounds, Jamal Murray dished out a career-high 15 assists and the Denver Nuggets extended their home winning streak to seven games by beating the Dallas Mavericks 126-118 on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). At 21-9, the Nuggets matched the 1976-77 squad for the best start through 30 games in franchise history. They also remain on top of the Western Conference by percentage points over Golden State. This is rarefied air for the Nuggets: The last time they had played more than 25 games and were alone in first place in the conference was March 1977. Murray contributed 22 points for the injury-depleted Nuggets, including 10 in the fourth quarter. Luka Doncic had a big game for Dallas with 23 points and a career-best 12 assists, while Harrison Barnes scored 30. The Mavericks hit 15 three-pointers against the NBA's top long-range defense. The Nuggets held each opponent under 100 points in their last six wins at the Pepsi Center. But this one turned into a track meet — a throwback to the days of old for Denver. Still, it was a defensive play that helped save the night for the Nuggets. Fueled by a 14-0 run at the end of the third, the Nuggets took a 105-95 lead into the final quarter. Dallas trimmed it to four before Monte Morris hit a three-pointer to give Denver some separation. Murray then blocked a shot and hit a jumper on the other end to seal the win. The Nuggets remain without Will Barton, Gary Harris and Paul Millsap due to injuries. Juancho Hernangomez started despite being questionable with a strained abdomen. He finished with 12 points, one of seven Denver players to score in double figures. TIP-INS Mavericks: G Dennis Smith Jr. sat out with a sprained right wrist. ... Dallas coach Rick Carlisle and Wesley Matthews received technical fouls for arguing calls. ... G J.J. Barea returned from a sprained ankle and had 10 points. ... F DeAndre Jordan fouled out with 6:29 remaining. He had 11 points and 12 rebounds. Nuggets: Murray picked up a technical in the first quarter for hanging on the rim and coach Michael Malone another in the third when he argued a call on Jokic. DONCIC EFFECT The most impressive thing about Doncic through the early portion of the season? That's easy for Carlisle. "Probably how consistently he makes half-court shots during shootaround," Carlisle cracked. HIGH PRAISE Carlisle said Jokic is an anomaly in the way he can take over the game, but plays "close to the floor." "It's one of the great things about the NBA game: Guys like him that have the size and skill and know how to use leverage and angles, their vision and senses can be All-Star-caliber players. He is that." UP NEXT Mavericks: Second of a four-game trip will be Thursday (Friday, PHL time) at the Los Angeles Clippers. Nuggets: Two straight on the road, beginning Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) in Los Angeles against the Clippers......»»

F2 Logistics stops rampaging Petron, forces title decider

F2 Logistics spoiled defending champion Petron’s tournament sweep attempt as the Cargo Movers shocked the erstwhile unbeaten Blaze Spikers to force a decider in their best-of-three 2018 PSL All-Filipino Conference Finals series Tuesday at the MOA Arena. The Cargo Movers shook off a rusty start to carve out a 21-25, 25-19, 25-20, 25-17, Game 2 win to tie the series and hand Petron its first loss in the season-ending conference. F2 Logistics swung the momentum to their side with a dominating second set showing that saw the Cargo Movers lead by 12 and sustained the same intensity in the next two to seal the all-important win in two hours and 25 minutes. Ara Galang showed the way for F2 Logistics with 20 points including 17 off kills while skipper Cha Cruz-Behag displayed an all-around effort with 13 markers laced with 25 digs and 15 excellent receptions. Majoy Baron and Aby Marano wreaked havoc at the net combining for seven of F2 Logistics’ 12 kill blocks. Baron posted 14 points off 10 kills, three kill blocks and an ace while Michelle Morente and Marano scored 10 and eight, respectively, for the Cargo Movers. “Medyo tight noong first set tapos madami pang bad calls ‘yung referee, nandoon na ‘yung momentum tapos mapuputol na hindi nakikita, judgement call eh. Hindi naman challengeable ‘yung mga calls ng referee noong pa-end ang first set so hindi [na ako] nag-challenge,” said Cargo Movers coach Ramil De Jesus. “Noong second set medyo relaxed na eh so sabi ko masyado nang malayo ‘yung naging score ng set so nahirapan humabol,” he added. “So ibig sabihin kaya, sabi ko sa kanila, basta pag tyagaan lang ang situation ng nangyayari.” Game 3 is on Thursday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.       The Blaze Spikers, which took the series opener, 25-23, 25-11, 25-17, last Saturday, went off to a good start and looked poised to duplicate the same feat they did when Petron swept the 2015 edition of the conference. But F2 Logistics were quick to regroup to open up a 22-10 lead in the second set that changed the complexion of the match. “Naniniwala ako na it's by God's grace, binibigyan niya kami ng lakas, kahit ano ‘yung mga nararamdaman namin at ano yung line-up namin. Plus, pinaalala ni coach kung sino talaga kami, kung ano kaya gawin namin, and nagkaroon kami ng kumpyansa sa sarili, sa bawat isa, and kumpyansa para sa kasama, at malasakit din,” said Cruz-Behag. “Kaya nakuha namin yung Game 2, and may focus kami and may goal kami na makuha yung Game 3.” Ces Molina scored all but one of her 17 points off kills while Aiza Maizo-Pontillas and Bernadeth Pons finished with 11 and 10 markers, respectively, for Petron. Meanwhile, De La Salle-Dasmarinas finished its campaign on a high note after taking down College of San Agustin-Binan, 25-23, 25-18, 21-25, 25-16, in the maiden Collegiate Grand Slam. Skipper Eunice Castillo got 16 points while Dasilyn Delfin and Rain Ramos scored 14 markers each for DLSU-Dasma. Aliah Marce had 14 points while Lency Duarte posted 13 for CSA.   ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Lionel Messi receives 5th Golden Shoe award for Europe’s top scorer

BARCELONA, Spain --- Lionel Messi received his record fifth Golden Shoe award on Tuesday for leading all of Europe's soccer leagues in scoring last season. Messi's fifth win breaks the tie he had with Cristiano Ronaldo. Messi scored 34 goals in the Spanish league last season to lead Barcelona to the title. Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah was the second leading scorer of Europe's domestic leagues with 32 goals in England. Messi also won the award in 2009-10 (34 goals), 2011-12 (50), 2012-13 (46) and 2016-17 (37). The Argentina forward currently leads Europe's top leagues with 14 goals this season.

Jose Mari Chan not keen on releasing new songs but to continue performing onstage

"I control the speakers in every mall," jested another.   Chan is well aware of the slew of jokes he and the song have inadvertently set off. And he doesn't mind them at all, he said.
