Antetokounmpo leads streaking Bucks past Grizzlies 111-101

By Clay Bailey, Associated Press MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo had 27 points and 11 rebounds as the Milwaukee Bucks used a third-quarter outburst to capture their third straight win, 111-101 over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Eric Bledsoe added 16 points and D.J. Wilson scored 13 for the Bucks, who won for the 14th time in 17 games. Omri Casspi led the Grizzlies with 17 points. Marc Gasol, Mike Conley and JaMychal Green scored 14 points apiece for Memphis, which lost its ninth in the last 10. The Grizzlies took their only lead of the game at 59-58 early in the second half on a three-pointer by Gasol. The Bucks made sure any Memphis excitement was short-lived. Milwaukee ran off 19 straight points to extend its lead to 18. By that point, the Grizzlies returned to uninspired play as the Bucks outscored Memphis 41-28 in the quarter. Memphis committed eight turnovers in the third, leading to 20 points. The Bucks took an early lead thanks to anemic shooting by Memphis. The Grizzlies starters seemed lackadaisical and not up to the task of challenging one of the better teams in the NBA as Milwaukee stretched its lead to as many as 14 points. The Memphis reserves brought more energy and steadily chipped away at the Bucks advantage. Casspi and Green led the rally. But the Bucks used 15 points from Antetokounmpo to hold on for a 50-45 lead at the break. The third-quarter rally led to Milwaukee building the advantage to as many as 31 points in the fourth. TIP-INS Bucks: Milwaukee leads the series 23-22. . The Bucks lead the league in scoring differential at 10 points per game and have 23 double-digit victories this season. . Antetokounmpo recorded his 30th double-double of the season. . Memphis defeated the Bucks 116-113 on Nov. 14 (Nov. 15, PHL time).

MANILA, Philippines --- As consumers braced for higher oil prices and a new round of excise tax on fuel products, lawmakers urged the Department of Energy (DOE) to release its "long overdue" memorandum itemizing oil prices in the country to identify overpricing companies.   Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi ordered the unbundling of prices of petroleum products in June 2018.

Carlos Zarate and Bayan Muna chair Neri Colmenares said Thursday the memorandum could help consumers facing increasing oil prices and the implementation of the second tr...Keep on reading: Bayan Muna presses DOE oil data to fight overpricing.....»»

Bruno Mars being eyed to perform at 2019 SEA Games opening

America's highest-paid musician is being booked to bring the house down during the opening ceremony of the 30th Southeast Asian Games. A reliable source confirmed to the Inquirer that Filipino organizers have begun to touch base with the handlers of Bruno Mars for a performance to remember that can send the country's SEA Games hosting to a phenomenal level.

His last bout on US soil was his comeback bout from his very brief retirement against Jessie Vargas back in 2016.  This will be Pacquiao's first bout under new promoter Al Haymon and Premier Boxing Champions.  This also marks the return of Freddie Roach's return to Pacquiao's corner after being absent during the Pinoy boxer's last bout against Lucas Matthysse back in July of 2018.  Broner, a multiple-time world champion in his own right, is looking to get back on the winning track after going winless in his last two outings, a loss to Mikey Garcia followed by a draw against Jessie Vargas. .....»»
