Griffin, Smith lead Pistons over Bulls 118-116

By JOHN JACKSON,  Associated Press CHICAGO (AP) — Blake Griffin had 33 points and 12 rebounds, Ish Smith scored all 15 of his points in the second half, including the game-winning basket, and the Detroit Pistons beat the Bulls 118-116 on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time) in Chicago's home opener. Griffin was 12 for 23 from the field, including 5 of 7 on 3-pointers, as Detroit won its second straight to start the season. Zach LaVine had 33 points on 12-of-22 shooting for Chicago, which dropped its second consecutive game. The Bulls played without starters Kris Dunn (excused absence) and Lauri Markkanen (sprained right elbow), and reserve Denzel Valentine (left ankle). With the score tied at 116, Smith drove through the defense for a layup with 5.4 seconds left. Detroit had a 60-58 halftime lead despite shooting 34 percent in the first two quarters. Griffin had 16 points on 5-of-7 shooting. LaVine had 19 first-half points for Chicago. The Pistons led 85-84 entering the fourth before the Bulls scored four straight points. Smith put Detroit back on top 89-88 and the Pistons held a slim advantage until LaVine hit a 3-pointer with 24.6 seconds left. After Smith's basket, Chicago had a chance to tie or go ahead with a 3, but LaVine lost the ball — he was pressured by Griffin — as he rose for a 3-pointer. TIP-INS Pistons: F Reggie Bullock (illness) and F Stanley Johnson (toe) returned to the starting lineup after missing the opener against Brooklyn. Bullock finished with 16 points in 24 minutes, while Johnson had 10 points in 30 minutes. Bulls: Valentine will be out for at least another two weeks after a scan on Friday revealed a bone bruise in his left ankle. He'll be re-evaluated in two weeks. "It's not that bad," Valentine said. "My ankle's feeling better, so it's just time." . Dunn missed his second straight game following the birth of his first child. He is expected to rejoin the team Monday in Dallas.

Palace: No to PDEA’s surprise drug test for 2019 election bets

  Malacaang on Friday rejected the proposal of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) to conduct surprise drug tests on candidates for the 2019 midterm elections. Presidential Spokesperson Panelo said such test should be taken "voluntarily" and not be forced on candidates. "Well sa tingin ko, dapat voluntary. Kung ayaw hindi naman pupuwedeng pupuwersahin mo," Panelo said in an interview over state-run Radyo Pilipinas. "Kung wala naman talagang itinatago, magbu-volunteer talaga iyan," he added, noting that he believes Duterte will also turn down the said proposal.

Embiid s 30, Simmons triple-double lead 76ers past Bulls 127-108

By Dan Gelston, Associated Press PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ben Simmons had a triple-double with 13 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists and Joel Embiid had 30 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Philadelphia 76ers past the Chicago Bulls 127-108 on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time). Zach LaVine led the Bulls with 30 points in their season opener. The curious case of Markelle Fultz continued against the Bulls when one of the more scrutinized players in the NBA managed to steal the spotlight from his more accomplished teammate with simple jumpers. Fultz had open looks early and 76ers fans exhorted him to "Shoot! Shoot!" each time he touched the ball as the second-year guard tries to overcome his aversion to jumpers. He found the look he wanted three minutes into the second quarter. Fultz dribbled to the foul line and hit an uncontested pull-up jumper, the ball rattling around the rim four times before it plopped through the net for two points. 76ers fans erupted in cheers as they gave him a standing ovation and chanted "Fultz! Fultz! Fultz!" Yes, a simple jumper from the No. 1 overall pick of the 2017 draft in the second game of the season was enough to get a rise out of the fans — and a sigh of relief from Fultz. Fultz got a similar reaction when he buried a three-pointer in a preseason game, after not attempting one last season. Fultz suffered from a right shoulder injury, a broken shot and busted confidence in his rookie season. Even his personal shooting coach said Fultz suffered from the "yips," which was shot down by his star client. Fultz blamed his lost season on the injury. Sixers coach Brett Brown tried to give Fultz a confidence boost by putting him in the starting lineup — yet benching him for the start of the second half. Fultz was 1-of-6 in 15 minutes in the first half and didn't play again until late in the third and the Sixers leading by 88-68. "The challenge is to grow him and help us win the game," Brown said. "There's no book that tells you how to do that, so you're going to have to figure some stuff out. There will be some pain along the way and some positives." With or without Fultz, the 76ers had plenty of positives after an opening-night disaster in Boston. Simmons hit a triple-double with 2:34 left in the third, the 13th of his career and the first Sixer to ever get one in the home opener. Sixers fans chanted "Trust the Process!" when Embiid ended the third with free throws. Fultz proved a long-range ace again in the fourth — this time with a 3! He drained his first career three-pointer for a 108-88 lead and the Philly fans that are firmly perched in his corner went wild and again chanted his name. The Sixers know that if they want to become legitimate Eastern Conference contenders, Fultz will have to become the star they envisioned when they drafted him. He made five baskets and scored 12 points. TIP-INS Bulls: G Kris Dunn missed the game for the birth of his son. ... Bobby Portis had 20 points and 11 rebounds. 76ers: Rapper Meek Mill sat courtside and rang the ceremonial Liberty Bell to start the game. ... Embiid thanked the fans for coming and told them to "Trust the Process." 1ST Q & NO D Embiid scored 12 points in the first five minutes of the game and neither team missed many looks in the first quarter. The Sixers made 11 of their first 14 shots and the Bulls started 14-of-19. The 76ers shot a whopping 70 percent in the quarter and still trailed the Bulls 41-38.

New recruits spark Navotas latest MPBL win; Makati back on track

Navotas proved that it has made the right move in acquiring players in the ongoing trading and drafting of players in the free agent market as last Wednesday, the new recruits showed they could fit well with their new squad. Veteran point guard Jai Reyes scored 18 points while hardworking Marlon Gomez came away with a double-double effort and the newest Clutch towed their team 90-83 victory over the Parañaque Patriots at the Angeles University Foundation Gymnasium. Picked up in a trade with Caloocan for Monbert Arong, Reyes didn't have much difficulty fitting in a team that also includes Ron Dennison, Matt Salem, and Kris Porter, his teammates in the PBA D-League. "Hindi mahirap yung transition," Reyes said. "Kasi naglalaro rin dito sa Navotas yung mga teammates ko sa D-League, plus I have known coach Ritchie Ticzon almost all my life."    The inclusion of Reyes gave the Clutch the veteran presence they needed in arresting back-to-back setbacks. Navotas improved its win-loss mark to 5-6 while dealing Parañaque its sixth loss in 12 games. While Reyes was a welcome addition in the backcourt, Gomez, a do-it-all big man acquired by Navotas in exchange for Levi Hernandez, provided the intangibles and additional inside presence for the Clutch. His double-double effort of 15 points and 14 rebounds was testament enough proof at how solid contributor he is. "Marlon is here to stay for us. He's the big man that we need. Siguro, ang only reason for us to release him is if he's moving up to the PBA," added Ticzon.     Makati edged home team Pampanga, 69-67, in the second game. Jeckster Apinan led the way with 15 points, while Cedric Ablaza contributed 13. Ex-pro Rudy Lingganay and John Rey Villanueva added 12 apiece for the Skyscrapers, who improved their win-loss record to 7-4 and atoned from their previous setback against Cebu.  .....»»
