Team LeBron rallies past Team Giannis in 2019 NBA All-Star game

CHARLOTTE, N.C. --- LeBron James was trading lob pass with Dwyane Wade again, one last time. Lobs from Kyrie Irving once again, too. And after making a stepback 3-pointer late, he stared down Joel Embiid to send a message without saying a word. Oh, this mattered. Team LeBron, down by 20 in the second half, finally got firing and went on to beat Team Giannis 178-164 in the All-Star Game on Sunday night. MVP Kevin Durant scored 31 points for Team LeBron, the one that James drafted and led to victory in the captain's-choice format for a second consecutive season. Klay Thompson scored 20, and James and Kawhi Leonard each scored 19 for the winners. Giannis Antetokounmpo --- the first-tim...Keep on reading: Team LeBron rallies past Team Giannis in 2019 NBA All-Star game.....»»

UAAP: Salamat sa pagdala ah -- Sisi Rondina on rookie Eya Laure

UST Golden Tigresses team captain Sisi Rondina can finally breathe a sigh of relief as she can already count on rookie Eya Laure as one of the members of her supporting cast in UAAP Season 81. Laure had an impressive debut for coach Emilio 'Kung Fu' Reyes' squad, scoring 17 points, including some impressive hits that solidified the hype surrounding her in UST's 25-21, 25-21, 24-26, 24-26, 15-6 win against Adamson at the Mall of Asia Arena Sunday afternoon. "Thank you ah. Patuloy niya lang ang ginagagwa niya. Malaking bagay talaga. Salamat sa pagdala ah," the graduating Rondina jokingly said on Laure's performance.  "Oo, sobra. Ano na eh. Mabilis na silang utusan, ganito, ganyan. Command pa lang sumusunod na. So walang problema. Ako lang talaga," the skipper added when talking about easing her burden as UST's main woman.  Adamson's net defense certainly made Rondina bleed for her game-high 17-point effort, as Coach Air Padda's girls made her a marked hitter, especially in the third and fourth sets, where Adamson was able to force a deciding fifth set.  But unlike last year, where Rondina had a herculean effort as the top scorer of the UAAP with 21.8 points but just resulted to three wins, she can finally take a back seat and rely on some of the young ones like rookies Laure, KC Galdones and sophomore Milena Alessandrini. "Pero ngayon kasi, makikita naman, makikita natin na andyan si Eya, may bagong pumasok. Then skills, kita naman. Yun. Okay naman, okay lang ako sa likod. Ang sarap magdepensa," shared Rondina. Even Reyes was relieved about the new support for his senior. "Alone, si Sisi nagi-iskor ng 30 points pero hindi nananalo. Di ko alam kung ano iniskor niya ngayon. Definitely double-digits. Pero may mga katulong na siya, kailangan maging balanse yung team. Ano lang, tao lang naman na nagkakamali, kailangan ng suporta." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary.   .....»»

Opening game loss not dampening UE Lady Warriors’ confidence

MANILA, Philippines---A defeat in the opening game of the UAAP Season 81 women's volleyball tournament isn't enough to dampen University of the East's confidence. Captain Kath Arado said the Lady Warriors' five-set loss to University of the Philippines, 25-12, 22-25, 23-25, 25-19, 15-12, Saturday at Filoil Flying V Center is just a cross mark in their schedule. "Yeah, we can still do it, we have 13 more games and some additional in the Final Four," said Arado in Filipino.

10 things to know about NBA All-Star 2019

By Tim Reynolds, Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — With All-Star festivities set to officially begin Friday (Saturday, PHL time), here are 10 things to know going into the weekend: BACK TO CHARLOTTE Charlotte hosted NBA All-Star weekend in 1991, and now gets it back a second time to join 14 other cities that can say it hosted the league’s showcase midseason event on multiple occasions. Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, New Orleans, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Seattle, St. Louis, Los Angeles and the L.A. suburb of Inglewood, California, are the other previous multi-hosting All-Star cities. The Bay Area, the Detroit area and the Dallas area are also two-time hosts, though never technically twice in the same city. LEBRON’S RECORDS LeBron James now has the record for most All-Star captaincies: Two. He and Stephen Curry had the jobs last year when the captain’s format was first introduced to the All-Star weekend, and he and Giannis Antetokounmpo have the jobs this year. But James’ records revolving around this game hardly stop there. By starting on Sunday (Monday, PHL time), James will tie Kobe Bryant with 15 starts in the All-Star Game. James will also extend his record of consecutive starts, which will also rise to 15. Some of the other All-Star records James already holds include total points (343), field goals (141) and three-pointers (35). And by playing two minutes, James will increase his All-Star total in that stat to 416 — one more than Bryant for No. 2 on the all-time list. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has played the most All-Star minutes, 449. FOULING OUT Bold prediction: No one will foul out on Sunday (Monday, PHL time). The last player to foul out of an All-Star Game was Hakeem Olajuwon in 1987. Chris Paul was the most recent to come close, when he was whistled for five fouls in the 2008 game. There have been only 14 instances of someone fouling out of an All-Star Game. Rick Barry and Bob Cousy each fouled out twice; 10 others, including Olajuwon, have done so once. MVPs AT HOME Kemba Walker, the lone Charlotte player in this year’s All-Star Game, has suggested that he’s hoping he can wow the home crowd with an MVP-worthy performance. There’s a history of that sort of thing happening. There have been 14 players who have won All-Star MVP honors in their home cities, spanning a total of 15 games. The list of hometown All-Star MVPs: Anthony Davis (New Orleans, 2017), Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles, 2011), Shaquille O’Neal (Phoenix, 2009 and Los Angeles, 2004), Karl Malone and John Stockton (Utah, 1993), Michael Jordan (Chicago, 1988), Tom Chambers (Seattle, 1987), Jerry West (Los Angeles, 1972), Rick Barry (the San Francisco area, 1967), Adrian Smith (Cincinnati, 1966), Bob Pettit (St. Louis, 1958 and 1962), Wilt Chamberlain (Philadelphia, 1960), Bob Cousy (Boston, 1957) and Ed Macauley (Boston, 1951). AGE MARK Assuming he plays, Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki — one of the special additions to the rosters by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, who also added Miami’s Dwyane Wade to the list — will become the second 40-something to appear in the All-Star Game. Nowitzki is 40; Kareem Abdul-Jabbar played in the game when he was 40 and 41. Michael Jordan almost pulled off the feat; he was eight days shy of turning 40 when he last played in the All-Star Game in 2003. Jordan, now the owner of the Charlotte Hornets and the unofficial host of the weekend, will turn 56 on Sunday. Wade, also assuming he gets into the game, will become the 12th player to be an All-Star at 37 or older. Wade turned 37 last month. HEROES Jason Weinmann and James Shaw Jr. might not be “celebrities,” at least not in the classic sense. But the NBA rightly believes they should be celebrated. Weinmann and Shaw were invited to play in Friday’s All-Star Celebrity Game to commemorate heroic acts. Weinmann, a retired Marine, used a military transport vehicle — which he bought at a government auction years ago — during Hurricane Florence last September to help rescue flood victims in North Carolina and bring them to safety. Shaw disarmed a man who had opened fire at a Waffle House restaurant near Nashville last April and has been heralded as a life-saving hero since for wrestling the AR-15 out of the alleged shooter’s hands by the barrel. G LEAGUE FIRST Khris Middleton of the Milwaukee Bucks is the first member of a new club. He’s the first G League alum to become an NBA All-Star. Middleton spent a short time during the 2012-13 season in the G League, before blossoming into one of the league’s best players and a key to Milwaukee going into the break with an NBA-best 43-14 record. There will be plenty of G League graduates participating on All-Star Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) as well — Middleton, Seth Curry, Danny Green and Joe Harris are all slated to be in the 3-point contest. CASH MATTERS There is some money at stake during All-Star Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) events, and everybody gets something. Everyone in the dunk contest will receive at least $20,000, everyone in the skills challenge gets at least $15,000 and all participants in the 3-point shootout take home at least $10,000. From there, prize money varies by finish — the skills challenge winner gets $55,000, the 3-point shootout champion wins $60,000 and the dunk contest winner takes home $105,000. In all, the Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time) participants will split $610,000. EASTBOUND This All-Star weekend is the first of four straight in Eastern Conference cities. Chicago gets it next year, Indianapolis in 2021 and Cleveland in 2022. The site for the 2023 game remains unknown; Salt Lake City and Sacramento are two sites often mentioned as candidates for that year, and Orlando is a likely suitor for the 2024 game. THE REFS Sunday’s (Monday, PHL time) All-Star Game will be officiated by Scott Foster, Curtis Blair and David Guthrie. It’s a home game of sorts for Guthrie, who resides in Charlotte. Foster worked the 2010 All-Star Game in Dallas. It’s the first All-Star Game for Blair and Guthrie. The Friday and Saturday (Saturday and Sunday, PHL time) events will be worked by a crew of newer refs — third-year official Aaron Smith and fourth-year officials Mitchell Ervin and Gediminas Petraitis......»»

PlayStation counts ‘bigger, fewer games’ among E3 skip reasoning

"Bigger, fewer games," the ability to reach fans, retailers and press at other times, and a lack of big announcements this June are among reasons for Shawn Layden, chairman of Worldwide Studios at Sony Interactive Entertainment, to have PlayStation skip E3 2019. At the 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Sony's console brand PlayStation focused on an unusually narrow band of four games: "Marvel's Spider-Man", "God of War", "The Last of Us Part II" and "Ghost of Tsushima". Two of those were launched toward the end of the year, leaving "The Last of Us Part II" and "Ghost of Tsushima" in the hopper, though with release dates still unannounced.
