PBA: Banchero after big game: 'I think it was my turn tonight'

After Alaska beat Columbian in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup, head coach Alex Compton wasn't particularly too happy about his locals. After Alaska beat Blackwater in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup, safe to say Compton can smile about the way his locals performed. No other Alaska local shined brighter than Chris Banchero against the Elite, as the point guard put up the points in the win over Blackwater. Seriously, a lot of points. Banchero only missed four times and drilled 28 points for the Aces, finishing just behind import Mike Harris who had 38. "We needed to play better basketball than we did against Columbian, I thought we did tonight," Banchero said. "I got it going a little big tonight. I was good. I'm glad I played well, I think it was my turn tonight to score the basketball. I was not realy trying to score, it was just that I kinda got it going," he added. With the win, Alaska has forced a three-way tie for first place in the Governors' Cup with Ginebra and Magnolia as all three have identical 7-2 records. Still, Banchero says the Aces have room to take things to a higher level. "We knew we needed to get that win because top-4 is our goal and we'll make the push from there. Being top-4 is a huge advantage," he said. "I think we still have room to grow," Banchero added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Alaska s Harris couldn t care less about top-4 finish

The 2018 PBA Governors' Cup standings is pretty top heavy right now, with five teams separated by just one game. Of the five teams, one will not get a twice-to-beat advantage and the top-4 advance to the playoffs with a bonus in hand. However, for Alaska super import Mike Harris, he couldn't care less of a top-4 finish. "People talk about the top-4 and to be honest with you, I really don't care about the top-4," Harris said. "No disrespect to the top-4 but everywhere I play, whether I’m at the top seed or the bottom seed, my objective’s to win. I learned from Greg Popovich, great teams win on the road, doesn’t matter if you’re home or away. Good thing here is all games are neutral games, some teams may get more fans but they’re like neutral side games here. I really like that," he added. Regardless of his feelings of the top-4, Harris' performance sure helped the Aces move closer to finishing as one of the higher seeds come playoff time. Monster Mike had himself a game against Blackwater, finishing with 38 points and 19 rebounds. His clutch four-point play with less than 20 seconds to play helped seal the deal for the Aces. Currently, Alaska is in a three-way tie for first place with Ginebra and Magnolia as all three teams sport identical 7-2 cards. But with about two weeks left of regular season play, Harris' focus is on Alaska's next assignment and not whether or not the Aces are inside the top-4 in the team standings. "You want to take each game one game at a time. We have NLEX next, so the focus is just to beat them," he said. "If you do what you have to do on the court, everything else takes care of itself," Harris added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Walker scores 39, Hornets survive Heat rally 113-112

By TIM REYNOLDS,  AP Basketball Writer MIAMI (AP) — Kemba Walker scored 39 points, including the game-winning free throw with a half-second left, and the Charlotte Hornets spoiled Dwyane Wade's final home opener by topping the Miami Heat 113-112 on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time). The Hornets led by 26 points midway through the third quarter, then wasted it all before Walker saved them on a night when he eclipsed the career 10,000-point mark. Wade scored to tie the game with 12.3 seconds left, setting up the final play. Walker drove on Miami's Rodney McGruder, wound up on the ground and referee Scott Wall called a blocking foul — one the Heat argued to no avail. Walker made the first, missed the second and time expired before anyone could contain the rebound. Malik Monk scored 15 for Charlotte, and Marvin Williams added 13. Wade led the Heat with 21 points. Goran Dragic scored 20, McGruder finished with 19 and Hassan Whiteside grabbed 15 rebounds for Miami. Charlotte was 12 for 20 from 3-point range in the first half, fueling its run to the huge lead. The Hornets then went 1 for 12 from beyond the arc in the third quarter, and missed their first three tries from deep in the fourth quarter before Monk rattled one down for a 103-97 lead with about 5 minutes left. But it wasn't over, not by a long shot. Wade made a pair of 3-pointers, then set up Whiteside for a basket that got the Heat within 107-105. Miami kept chipping away, getting within 111-110 on a drive by McGruder with 46 seconds left. After Michael Kidd-Gilchrist made one of two foul shots, the Heat had the ball down two with 24.7 seconds left. Wade tried a 3 for the lead and missed badly — so badly that he knew where the rebound was going. He scooted in, got the board himself and laid it in for a tie with 12.3 seconds left to mark the first time that the Hornets hadn't led in the second half. That's when the Hornets gave the ball to Walker for their final play, and he delivered. The Heat led 15-6 early, and it didn't last long — as the next 24 minutes were basically all Charlotte. The Hornets had separate runs of 11-2 and 20-6 in the second quarter to take a 72-52 lead, and Cody Zeller's dunk midway through the third put the Hornets up 82-56. Miami outscored Charlotte 26-10 over the remainder of the third to get within 92-82 going into the final quarter. Dragic had 13 of his points in the third, and his alley-oop to Bam Adebayo for a dunk got the Heat within six less than a minute into the fourth. TIP-INS Hornets: Charlotte had lost six straight against Miami. ... Walker got his milestone basket on a drive in the third quarter, and coach James Borrego said getting to 10,000 is something to celebrate. "You're talking about being in an elite class," Borrego said. "You've got to work. You've got to get better every single year. You can't relax." Heat: Miami's three games have been decided by margins of three points, one point and one point. ... Miami is 9-2 in home openers under coach Erik Spoelstra. Both losses have come to Charlotte. ... The Heat outrebounded Charlotte 49-40, but saw their 16 turnovers converted into 25 points. SIZZLING WALKER Walker has 106 points through Charlotte's first three games. That's more than he's ever scored in his first four games of an NBA season — he had 92 in his first four appearances of the 2016-17 season. ONE LAST DANCE It was the final home opener for Wade, who has dubbed this season "one last dance." He and fellow 16-year veteran Udonis Haslem addressed the Miami crowd before the game. "We want to thank each and every last one of you guys," Wade said. UP NEXT Hornets: Visit Toronto on Monday. Heat: Host New York on Wednesday......»»
