MPBL: Straight from D-League Finals, Banal leads Bacoor to victory

Right from Game 2 of the Finals of the 2018 PBA D-League Foundation Cup last Tuesday afternoon, Gab Banal headed for the Strike Gymnasium in Bacoor, Cavite. There, he stayed hot to shoot the Strikers over very game visitors Laguna, 91-86, for their fourth straight win after a 0-2 start in the 2018 Maharlika Pilipinas Anta-Datu Cup. Banal posted a 25-point, 12-rebound double-double to go along with six assists. This, just hours after tallying 33 points built on 7-of-8 shooting from threes while also collecting six rebounds and four assists in Go for Gold’s 105-81 Game 2 victory versus Che’Lu Bar and Grill in the best-of-five Finals of PBA D-League. The versatile forward had much help from fellow Strikers Leo De Vera who pounded in 17 points and 12 rebounds and Mark Montuano who scored 20 markers of his own. For the Heroes, Denok Miranda topped the scoring column with 29 points. Unable to douse cold water on Banal, though, they fell for the third time in a row and fell to a 2-4 record. In the day’s other game, Davao Occidental got the better of Cebu, 71-64. Billy Ray Robles showed the way for the now 3-3 Tigers with 14 points, eight rebounds, three assists, and two steals. Patrick Cabahug paced the Sharks with 14 points which proved to be insufficient in preventing their drop to 1-5. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Asia, prepare for the Pringle-Lee-Clarkson backcourt

A backcourt of Stanley Pringle, Paul Lee, and Jordan Clarkson? Enough to be the best in Asia, if you ask former Gilas Pilipinas coach Tab Baldwin. With the entry of the Cleveland Cavaliers guard to the physical and explosive backcourt of Team Philippiines, the current Ateneo Blue Eagles head coach says that Gilas' opponents would have their hands full in guarding them. "So, you know, this is an exceptionally strong back court. I don't think Asia's seen anything like it, to be honest," Baldwin said in an interview at the ABS-CBN Integrated Sports Office. Even before the inclusion of Clarkson in the 12-man lineup in the quadrennial affair, Baldwin already noted the greatness of the backcourt, which includes the Globalport star, which he calls as 'one of the best point guards in Asia.' "Adding Jordan (Clarkson) will help a lot because it puts a guy in the lineup that can do some hard work in and around the basket. He's a good rebounder, he's got good size, strength and experience. But man, what a back court they have now produced." Asia better be ready for an 'exceptionally strong back court' of Stanley Pringle, Paul Lee, and of course, Jordan Clarkson, says coach Tab. "I don't think Asia's seen anything like it, to be honest."'#AsianGames | @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/aIB0qjgrD5 — Philip Martin Matel (@philipptionary) August 15, 2018 In addition to calling Pringle, who was a former top pick in the PBA Rookie Draft, as the best in the continent, Baldwin added that the Lee is not too far behind. The American-Kiwi coach cited the intangibles those two possess since they create opportunities not just for themselves, but for the whole team's offense. "So it gives Yeng [Guiao] the luxury of running a pretty basic offensive action, which with the limited time they have to prepare, you're gonna love that. He's gonna love that." Even though Asia is not necessarily known for tough and physical play, having a backcourt like Pringle, Lee, and Clarkson will work wonders for the Guiao-mentored squad, and have a chance to create mismatches for the Philippine side. With that said, in order to win it all, which is not a far possibility Baldwin says, the loaded backcourt needs to be supported by a 'little bit small and thin' front court, with the tallest player being 45-year old 6 foot 9 Asi Taulava with 6 foot 8 Christian Standhardinger, 6 foot 8 Raymond Almazan and 6 foot 8 Poy Erram not too far behind. "I hope and pray that Christian and Beau and Poy and Asi, that these guys will do a good job on the board for us. If they do that, I think they'll be in good shape."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»
