PBA: Alaska overpowers Columbian to start Comm’s Cup

All Alaska needed was one strong quarter. The Aces started off the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup on a high note, overpowering Columbian Sunday at the MOA Arena, 111-98. Alaska dominated the third, outscoring the Dyip, 34-13, to completely turn the game around in their favor. With import Chris Daniels at the lead, the Aces join Blackwater as early winners of the mid-season joust with identical 1-0 records. “Always good to start off with a win,” said head coach Alex Compton. “This game was really important for us. We have a nice run of 4 games ?in 10 days?, to get one is good,” he added. After giving up 54 points in the first half, including 31 in teh second quarter, the Aces tightened things up in the third, limiting the Dyip to only 13 markers. Alaska controlled the game from then on, taking its largest lead of the night at 20 points, 89-69, before cruising for the win. Import Chris Daniels was the high man for the Aces, shooting 68 percent from the field for 25 points on top of 16 rebounds. Chris Banchero added 20 points off the bench and Simon Enciso was good for another 19 in a starting role. For the Dyip, it was Kyle Barone that led the way with 30 points and 22 rebounds. Top pick CJ Perez contributed 19 points in a losing effort. The Scores: ALASKA 111 -- Daniels 25, Banchero 20, Enciso 19, Cruz 14, Teng 8, Racal 7, Ayaay 7, Thoss 5, Casio 4, Baclao 2, Pascual 0, Galliguez 0.

PBA: Aces get a second “coach” in import Chris Daniels

Alaska may not have the most physically-imposing import in the 2019 PBA Commisisoner’s Cup, but the Aces may have the smartest one. Head coach Alex Compton was raving about the basketball IQ of his new import in Chris Daniels, saying he acts like a second coach on the floor for the Aces. That could prove crucial to Alaska as the team looks to have another strong run with a veteran reinforcement just like they did with Mike Harris in last season’s Governors’ Cup. “He’s like a coach, he’s one of the smartest guys that I’ve been around,” Compton said of Daniels. “He thinks like a coach, as a player. Having a brain and a skill set like he has is great,” he added. For Daniels, he says he still have more things to learn. He’ll be tested as he looks to guide the Aces in a crucial opening stretch where they’ll have four games in less than two weeks. How he adjust on the fly could dictate how strong — or poor — Alaska’s start is to this conference. “That's a great compliment from coach but I still have a lot to learn. I'm relatively new to this so I have of ton of stuff to learn about the PBA,” he said. “But while I'm on the floor, I'm going to help my guys anyway I possibly can. If I see something that's going to help them and help our team, I'm going to say something about it,” Daniels added. In his PBA debut, Daniels gave a strong effort and finished with 25 points and 16 rebounds. “We just got to take it one game at a time. We can't gauge the whole season or our next game off of this one game,” he said. “We got to live in the present and live in the moment. We lived in this moment, this moment is over. We got to start preparing for next game,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA Finals: Hotshots stay positive after latest Philippine Cup loss

Magnolia was so close to ending the greatest All-Filipino dynasty of all-time. The Hotshots were up 17 points against San Miguel Beer in Game 7 of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals Wednesday. Unfortunately, Magnolia failed to close things out and ended up losing by a point to the now five-time champion Beermen. They gave up the marginal basket with 57 seconds to go and the Hotshots never got to answer back. “Of course sa start medyo malungkot kami, syempre kahit papaano sayang,” head coach Chito Victolero said. “But you know after that, I explained and they understand na di binigay samin ngayon, maybe next conference, sa third conference, or next Philippine Cup. Basta we stay positive,” he added. After a five-game debacle in the 2018 Finals, the Hotshots recovered to take the Beermen to Game 7 in 2019. Magnolia wanted that chance and they got it. The team really just couldn’t finish it off this time. “It’s just breaks of the game. When we started the series, it’s our goal to go to Game 7, do-or-die game,” Victolero said. “We had a chance. We had opportunities to win the game but you know, it’s the breaks of the game,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA Finals: 5-peat hardest title to win since Beeracle says Arwind

San Miguel Beer’s 2019 PBA Philippine Cup conquest is special for a lot of things. One, it’s the Beermen’s fifth straight Philippine Cup crown. That’s a league record and it pretty much established San Miguel’s status as the greatest All-Filipino dynasty of all time. Two, the seven-game series win against Magnolia is pretty much the hardest and most fulfilling title for the Beermen since the incredible “Beeracle” run in 2016. “Maliban sa Beeracle, ito na yung pinaka-mahirap naming kunin na championship,” Arwind Santos on their 4-3 Finals win against the Hotshots to complete the 5-peat. “Sobrang nakakakaba pero dito pa rin nasubukan yung tiwala namin sa bawa’t isa,” he added. In 2016, San Miguel was down 0-3 to the Alaska Aces before the Beermen went on to make the greatest comeback in basketball history to win back-to-back titles. In 2019, San Miguel was down 0-1, 1-2, 2-3 in the series and was trailing by 17 in the second half of Game 7 to Magnolia before rallying in the fourth to win by one point in the decider. The Beermen simply refused to let go and now their place in history s secured. “Sa totoo lang, para akong lalagnatin. Pagod na pagod ako,” Arwind said. “Ang hirap bumitaw kasi ang lapit lang eh. Kung kumurap ka, puwede ka pa manalo. Yun na lang nasa isip namin nun. Sige lang, tiwala lang sa bawa’t isa,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA Finals: Terrence takes last shot at haters after first title

Terrence Romeo has been the subject of criticism for much of his PBA career. He’s been called a lot of harsh things and he’s being mainly attacked for his lack of team success and his supposed attitude problem. Romeo still has some things to work on in terms of controlling his emotion but Terrence finally crossed out a major bucket list entry by winning his first PBA title. After San Miguel’s Game 7 win over Magnolia in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals, Romeo is now a champion and Terrence couldn’t help but take one last shot at his detractors. “Mga haters ko lagi akong mine-message sa Instagram, sa Twitter. Mine-message ako na hindi raw ako magcha-champion. Talented daw ako, nasa akin daw lahat ng award pero never daw ako magcha-champion, Malas daw ako sa San Miguel,” Romeo said. “So parang gusto kong sabihin sa kanila ngayon na paki message nila ako ulit sa Instagram ko and mamaya pag nag-post ako ng picture, pag nag-post ako ng trophy paki-message ako ulit lahat sila sabihin nila lahat ng gusto nila. Malamang bago na yon. Hindi na nila masasabi na hindi ako magcha-champion so kailangan ko ng bago sa mga haters sabihin nila lahat ng gusto nila isa isa sila. Gusto ko lahat sabay-sabay sila sabihin nila,” he added. Romeo was man enough to admit that the constant hate thrown towards him affected his psyche particularly when he was piling up points but failed to pile up wins. When he was traded to TNT, supposedly his first real chance at a championship, things unraveled so fast and the situation actually got worse for Terrence. “Actually naapektuhan ako before kasi three years kong hinawakan sunud-sunod yung scoring champion. Binigay ko yung best ko every conference pero one-time lang ako nakaabot ng semis,” Romeo said. “Lahat ginagawa ko hindi ko maabot yung dream ko. So ayon, nalipat ako ng Talk ’N Text. Pagdating ko ng Talk ’N Text ganon din, hindi rin ako umabot ng semis,” he added. Finding his way to San Miguel Beer, Romeo discovered a home and has learned to embrace his role behind the team’s more established stars. Sacrificing individual honor, Terrence finally got the dream he’s been chasing for a long time and it’s all worth it. “At least, para sa akin nafulfill ko pa rin na naging part ako ng champion team na may natulong pa rin ako,” he said. “Siguro naniniwala ako, pinanghawakan ko na lang na si God talagang may plano para sa isang tao. So inantay ko lang talaga yung perfect timing niya kung kailan niya ibibigay sa akin. Eto na yung time na yon kaya lahat ng haters ko mag-ingay,” Romeo added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA Finals: All-Filipino champs to be crowned in Game 7

The All-Filipino champion will be decided Wednesday.

The Beermen forced this decisive showdown with a Game 6 win Sunday, saving their All-Filipino dynasty in the process as well.

If Magnolia does take this one, it’s the second straight PBA title and first in the All-Filipino since 2014, the year of the team’s Grand Slam.
