PBA: Game 3 of Manila Clasico is 'most important of the year' says Travis

Magnolia now has the opportunity to become only the second PBA team to win a series against Justin Brownlee and Brgy. Ginebra. After Monday's win, the Hotshots have taken a commanding 2-0 lead in the Manila Clasico semifinals of the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup. On the brink of a second Finals appearance this season, Magnolia is going for it in Game 3 set for Wednesday. "It's of utmost importance [to win Game 3]. That team is amazing, that's a great team, perennial champions. You don't wanna keep playing them," Hotshots import Romeo Travis said of the Gin Kings, the reigning two-time champions of the Governors' Cup. "You don't wanna keep giving them opportunities so this is the most important game of the year for us. That's just what we wanna do, you don't wanna give this team chances," he added. Since Justin Brownlee entered the scene, Ginebra has won three PBA titles in four conferences. The only miss was in the 2017 PBA Commissioner's Cup when the TNT KaTropa used a 2-0 lead to win their semifinal series against the Gin Kings, 3-1. The Hotshots are looking to do the same now, but preferably they win this series in three. You don't necessarily want Ginebra to go on one of those "Never Say Die" runs. "We just don't want to give them opportunities to beat you. They're a really good team and if we have a chance to beat them, to move on, that's what we're trying to do," Travis said. "We're not going to a game and say we're going to lose. We're going to try and close out the series the best way we know how and just keep playing Hotshots basketball, which is team. Team above all. Our new mantra is believe, and that's what we're trying to do, just believe," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

What Rico J. Puno would’ve sung to Imelda Marcos

    Your mantra for the week: "My peace of mind brings me my prosperity." Today, at the temple, we are celebrating 11-11-11, which, in numerology, is a reminder that the most important thing in life is to have peace. Eleven is considered a Master Number, which stands for the Cosmic Number of Peace. In IAMISM, we believe that heaven is your mind at peace, which lends greater credence to what Jesus said: "The kingdom of heaven is at hand," implying that when one is at peace with oneself and with others, truly, heaven is on earth. That state of mind cannot be attained, unless we open our hearts and minds to forgiveness, which means not only forgiving others but also...Keep on reading: What Rico J.

Caris LeVert hits floater to lift Nets past Nuggets, 112-110

By MICHAEL KELLY,  Associated Press DENVER (AP) — Caris LeVert hit a floater in the lane with 0.3 seconds left and the Brooklyn Nets scored the last six points to beat the Denver Nuggets 112-110 on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time). The Nets overcame a big bounce-back night from Denver's Nikola Jokic to win their third straight. In an offensive funk for the last four games, Jokic had a season-high 37 points and tied his career best with 21 rebounds. It wasn't enough to prevent Denver's first home loss of the season. Jokic took only one shot Wednesday night in a loss to Memphis, a 3-pointer in the final seconds that would have given Denver the win. He took only 18 shots in the first four games of November but topped that before the end of the third quarter. He had 11 points in the first quarter and a double-double with 20 points and 12 rebounds at halftime. Denver appeared to take control after Jokic blocked Jarrett Allen, grabbed the rebound and fed Malik Beasley for a layup and a 108-106 lead with 1:23 left. After a Brooklyn miss, Paul Millsap's two free throws made it a four-point game. The Nets tied it with 29 seconds left and Jokic was called for traveling with 22 seconds left. LeVert got the ball up top and was blanketed by Gary Harris. He broke through the tight defense to get into the lane and hit a soft lob to give Brooklyn the win. D'Angelo Russell led the Nets with 23 points, and Allen had 18. TIP-INS Nets: DeMarre Carroll scored nine points in 14 minutes in his season debut. He missed the first nine games following right ankle surgery. ... The Nuggets played a short tribute video for Kenneth Faried's return to Denver. Faried was traded to Brooklyn after seven years with the Nuggets. Nuggets: Denver attempted two free throws in the first half and 32 in the second half. ... Harris scored a season-low four points. It is the first time in 12 games he hasn't scored in double figures. GOT YOUR BACK Denver head coach Michael Malone defended Jokic for his comments last week that drew a $25,000 fine from the NBA. Jokic's was dinged for his use of a gay slur after a win in Chicago on Oct. 31. "There's so many things being said about this poor kid, and I understand some of it," Malone said. "Those of us who know him, give the kid a break. He made a mistake, he paid for it, get off his back a little bit. He's a great kid, he loves everybody and meant no offense to anybody. He's going to be fine and let the kid be a 23-year-old young kid who's going to have a great, great future in a Nuggets uniform." UP NEXT Nets: Continue their four-game trip at Golden State on Saturday night. Nuggets: Host Milwaukee on Sunday night......»»
