PBA: Sean Anthony cops year s first Player of the Week award

Fil-Canadian forward Sean Anthony emerged as the first Cignal-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week for the 2019 season after contributing huge numbers in NorthPort’s strong start in the Philippine Cup. A known hardworker on both ends of the floor, the 6-foot-4 Anthony registered averages of 20.5 points 7.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 4.0 steals as NorthPort beat Blackwater followed by NLEX in its first two assignments in the All-Filipino conference. In the Batang Pier’s opening game, Anthony came off the bench and scored 19 points, hauled down five rebounds, issued the same number of assists and one steal as they ripped the Elite, 117-91 last January 16. Four days later, the PBA’s sixth overall pick in the 2010 rookie draft sizzled with 22 points, nine rebounds, seven steals and five assists to power NorthPort to a 95-90 win over NLEX. NorthPort’s back-to-back wins marked the franchise’s best season start in two years. “We know Sean, laban lang ng laban,” NorthPort coach Pido Jarencio said after his team’s five-point win over NLEX on Sunday.  “Sixth man nga namin, pero nag-deliver, nag-double double, tapos 'yung hustle di tumitigil.” Anthony bested teammates Mo Tautuaa and Robert Bolick, along with Phoenix’s Jason Perkins, Alex Mallari and Justin Chua for the weekly citation. NorthPort will be gunning for a third straight win this Friday when it collides with Columbian Dyip at the Ynares Center in Antipolo. .....»»

NCAA: JRU gets building block for future in John Amores

Last season, Jose Rizal University had its worst showing in the Vergel Meneses era. Still, the Heavy Bombers have reason to hope in the new year in the form of John Amores. “Sa JRU pa rin po ako mag-college,” he said. Amores, a 6-foot-2 stocky swingman, was the leader of the Light Bomber crew that was the pleasant surprise of the NCAA 94 Juniors a year ago. As they made a welcome return to the Final Four, so did Amores make himself the Most Improved Player with per game counts of a team-best 17.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.3 steals. Now, the 19-year-old has committed to help JRU’s Seniors squad make its own welcome return to the Final Four. Amores will add much-needed scoring to the Heavy Bombers who trudged through a 3-15 campaign a season ago. He is also expected to bring over his physical defense in the next level. Alongside him will be another John the Kalentong ballers are hoping to be a huge help for them. John Delos Santos, an explosive point guard, will still be with his running mate, now for JRU Seniors. He averaged 11.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 2.3 steals last year as the Light Bombers’ court general. Amores and Delos Santos are expected to make an immediate impact so that team leader Jed Mendoza will finally get the supporting cast he needs. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA: Miranda fined P30k, suspended 1 game

Mike Miranda’s latest shenanigans have been met with strong consequences right off the bat. For his late hit on Phoenix’s Justin Chua late in TNT’s overtime loss last Saturday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo, Miranda has been fined P30,000 and suspended one game by PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial. With the Fuel Masters closing in on an overtime victory, Miranda practically punched Chua in the stomach following a made basket. The new TNT forward was promptly hit with a disqualifying foul and was ejected. On Monday, the Commissioner’s office slapped Miranda with a hefty fine and an automatic suspension. Miranda will now miss the KaTropa’s next game Wednesday against NLEX, his former team. TNT is sitting at 0-2 in the 2019 Philippine Cup.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Zuerlein’s 57-Yard Field Goal Sends Rams to Super Bowl

NEW ORLEANS --- A big comeback. A blown call. And, finally, a booming kick that sent the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl. After rallying from an early 13-0 deficit, the Rams stunned the New Orleans Saints with Greg Zuerlein's 57-yard field goal in overtime for a 26-23 victory in the NFC championship game Sunday --- an outcome that might not have been possible without an egregious mistake by the officials in the closing minutes of regulation. Los Angeles cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman committed a blatant interference penalty with a helmet-to-helmet hit on Tommylee Lewis well before the pass arrived inside the 5, forcing the Saints to settle for Wil Lutz's 31-yard field goal tha...Keep on reading: Zuerlein’s 57-Yard Field Goal Sends Rams to Super Bowl.....»»

Rose saves the day, Timberwolves beat Suns 116-114

By Andres Ybarra, Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Derrick Rose hit an 18-footer with 0.6 seconds left to give the Minnesota Timberwolves a 116-114 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night (Monday, PHL time). Rose scored 29 of his 31 points in the seconds to help Minnesota overcome an 11-point deficit. THE KID FROM CHICAGO COMES UP CLUTCH 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹@budweiserusa Legendary Moment — Timberwolves (@Timberwolves) January 21, 2019 Karl-Anthony Towns had 28 of his 30 points in the first half for Minnesota.

Warren led Phoenix with 21 points and Devin Booker and Kelly Oubre, Jr. each added 18. Warren's last-second corner three hit off the side of the backboard.

PBA: Romeo could miss another two games for SMB

Looks like Terrence Romeo will be out for San Miguel for a couple more games. In his season debut with the Beermen last Friday, Romeo exited early after suffering an apparent left ankle injury. The official diagnosis is he has a sprained ankle and he’s been advised to give it a rest for a week. The Beermen have two games set for Jan. 25 and Jan. 27 and it appears that the team plans to shut down Romeo at least through the first month of the new year. “Terrence, we don’t know yet dahil we don’t want to aggravate his injury,” head coach Leo Austria said. “I think he will miss two more games siguro,” he added. Romeo has no problem missing the two upcoming games though he is trying to get himself healthy quickly enough to rejoin the Beermen. Still, he’s in no rush in forcing his ankle. “One week rest siguro para sure, yun yung sinabi sakin nung nagpa-check ako. Titignan ko kung aabot sa next game,” Romeo said. “Pero di ko kasi pwedeng madaliin eh. Alam naman ni coach eh, susunod lang ako kung ano gusto nila. Susubukan ko lang na mas mapabilis para makatulong ako sa team,” Terrence added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Standhardinger on SMB: “When we play hard, it’s hard to beat us“

The real San Miguel finally showed up. After a shock loss to Columbian to start their 2019 Philippine Cup title defense, the Beermen recovered rather quickly, pummeling Brgy. Ginebra Sunday at the Big Dome. While San Miguel once again got a dose of good old NSD late in the fourth period, the Beermen were dominant almost throughout, leading by as many as 23 points. The shock loss to the Dyip didn’t necessarily serve as a wake up call for San Miguel according to forward Christian Standhardinger. It’s just that when the Beermen are playing at least just near to their full potential, they’re almost pretty impossible to stop. They played well enough Sunday and they took down one of their chief contenders to the title. “I don’t know about a wake up call,” Standhardinger, who led all scorers with 26 points, said after the game. “I’m just happy we played good today and we played hard. When we play hard, it’s hard to beat us,” he added. Now missing Alex Cabagnot and Terrence Romeo to injury, the Beermen still had more than enough star power to dominate. And when the remaining stars, which included him with guards Chris Ross and Marcio Lassiter, found their mark against the Gin Kings... well the result speaks for itself. “It was good, as you saw, everyone played hard,” Standhardinger said. “Like I said, when we go hard, it’s hard to stop us. But we do have to go hard everytime andd we have to adjust and sacrifice for the team,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
