Lillard, Nurkic s big 3rd send Blazers past Jazz, 109-104

By Matthew Coles, Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Damian Lillard scored 26 points and Jusuf Nurkic had 17 in the third quarter to lift the Portland Trail Blazers past the Utah Jazz 109-104 on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). In a matchup between two of the NBA's hottest teams, the Blazers made 50 percent of their shots and piled up 30 assists to snap Utah's six-game winning streak. Nurkic finished with 22 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and six blocks. CJ McCollum added 14 points for Portland, which has won 7-of-9. Meyers Leonard's second three-pointer of the fourth quarter capped a 10-2 burst, all without Lillard on the court, to give the Blazers a 96-88 lead. On the other end, the Jazz missed open shot after open shot, helping Portland take command. Donovan Mitchell continued his high-scoring streak with 36 points for Utah. Jae Crowder scored 15 while Rudy Gobert had 10 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks. Lillard came back in and drained a three for a 101-90 advantage. Mitchell desperately tried to will the Jazz back with a variety of drives and shots in the lane, but no one else could score for Utah. McCollum gave Portland its biggest lead at 106-94 with 2:45 remaining. Mitchell's free throws brought the Jazz to 108-104, but after Gobert's block Joe Ingles missed a wide-open corner triple, Utah's seventh straight miss from long distance down the stretch. Nurkic scored 17 points in the third quarter against Utah's frontline, which has anchored the toughest defense in the league over the past 10 games. His layup, three-point play and tip-in — a personal 7-0 run — gave the Blazers an 80-75 edge late in the period. Portland's 30 assists marked the 10th time in the last 12 games the Blazers have recorded at least 25. They are 14-3 this season when they finish with 25 or more. TIP-INS Trail Blazers: The first nine Portland baskets were points in the paint. Conversely, the Blazers went more than eight minutes in the second quarter without an inside basket. ... Evan Turner got a technical for his reaction to a foul by Ricky Rubio in the second quarter. ... Portland shot 7-for-13 in the second half from three-point range after shooting just 1-of-5 in the first half. Jazz: Jae Crowder got a technical after mixing it up with Nurkic in the third quarter. Gobert was whistled for another technical less than two minutes later. ... Gobert is tied with Joel Embiid for the NBA lead with 39 double-doubles and has posted one in eight consecutive games. ... Mitchell is averaging nearly 30 points over the last nine games. RUBIO RETURNS Rubio, who had been out since straining his hamstring in the first quarter against Milwaukee on Jan.7 (Jan. 8, PHL time), returned to the court and it was none too soon for the Jazz. Besides Rubio, Dante Exum and Raul Neto have also been injured, forcing Mitchell to play the point. Even though Utah won all six games Rubio missed, coach Quin Snyder said before the game: "There's just so many things that are subtle that he does on the floor. On-the-ball defense, probably since the early part of the year, has been one of the things (where) he's been solid. ... It's great to have him back. He's a competitor and we missed him." Rubio, who was on a medical minutes restriction, scored 12 points. UP NEXT Blazers: Visit the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time). Jazz: Host the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time)......»»

PBA: Miranda fined P30k, suspended 1 game

Mike Miranda’s latest shenanigans have been met with strong consequences right off the bat. For his late hit on Phoenix’s Justin Chua late in TNT’s overtime loss last Saturday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo, Miranda has been fined P30,000 and suspended one game by PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial. With the Fuel Masters closing in on an overtime victory, Miranda practically punched Chua in the stomach following a made basket. The new TNT forward was promptly hit with a disqualifying foul and was ejected. On Monday, the Commissioner’s office slapped Miranda with a hefty fine and an automatic suspension. Miranda will now miss the KaTropa’s next game Wednesday against NLEX, his former team. TNT is sitting at 0-2 in the 2019 Philippine Cup.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Romeo could miss another two games for SMB

Looks like Terrence Romeo will be out for San Miguel for a couple more games. In his season debut with the Beermen last Friday, Romeo exited early after suffering an apparent left ankle injury. The official diagnosis is he has a sprained ankle and he’s been advised to give it a rest for a week. The Beermen have two games set for Jan. 25 and Jan. 27 and it appears that the team plans to shut down Romeo at least through the first month of the new year. “Terrence, we don’t know yet dahil we don’t want to aggravate his injury,” head coach Leo Austria said. “I think he will miss two more games siguro,” he added. Romeo has no problem missing the two upcoming games though he is trying to get himself healthy quickly enough to rejoin the Beermen. Still, he’s in no rush in forcing his ankle. “One week rest siguro para sure, yun yung sinabi sakin nung nagpa-check ako. Titignan ko kung aabot sa next game,” Romeo said. “Pero di ko kasi pwedeng madaliin eh. Alam naman ni coach eh, susunod lang ako kung ano gusto nila. Susubukan ko lang na mas mapabilis para makatulong ako sa team,” Terrence added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: We had to weather the storm -- Lassiter

No lead is safe when you’re against Barangay Ginebra. The Gin Kings almost made San Miguel Beer pay Sunday at the Big Dome. Good thing, Marcio Lassiter was ready to play the firefighter's role in the Beermen's 99-91 escape over Ginebra to barge in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup win column. SMB squandered a 23-point lead late in the third quarter and watched as the Gin Kings cut their deficit to 89-94 with 1:29 left in the game after LA Tenorio’s trey in Ginebra’s 17-5 scoring spurt. Then Lassiter came to the rescue for the Beermen. The SMB guard nailed a corner three to stop the Gin Kings at their track with 1:15 left. “I’m just lucky that on that play we just kept sharing the ball. So the ball found me on the corner and I was able to knock down,” said Lassiter. “That’s what we want, to keep sharing the ball and regardless of how, you know, we might miss some few shots but we kept sharing it good things happen.” Lassiter finished with 16 points with 4-of-6 shooting from beyond the arc. SMB went up 76-53 with 1:40 remaining in the third period off a three by Von Pessumal. The Beermen entered the payoff period with a comfortable 78-57 advantage. Or so they thought. “I felt like, we had a big lead originally, and we just need to keep our composure. Basketball is a game of runs so they made their run in the end. I give credit to them,” said Lassiter. “Ginebra’s a good team. You can’t discredit them. I give credit to them but we had to weather the storm and put some key stops and some key buckets in to get the win,” he added. The Beermen captured their first win in two games and pulled the Gin Kings down to 1-1.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Marian’s camera-comfy toddler now ready to be a big sis

At just 3 years old, Zia Dantes, daughter of show biz couple Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes, already seems quite comfortable being in front of big crowds. "Thank you, everyone.

On the Road to Making an Affordable Car, Tesla Cuts Jobs

Tesla will cut 7 percent of its workforce as it tries to lower prices and break out of the niche-car market to produce an electric vehicle that more people can afford. Tesla's cheapest model right now is the $44,000 Model 3, and it needs to broaden its customer base to survive. "Looking ahead at our mission of accelerating the advent of sustainable transport and energy, which is important for all life on Earth, we face an extremely difficult challenge: making our cars, batteries and solar products cost-competitive with fossil fuels," CEO Elon Musk said in a letter to staff.

PBA: Wright and Phoenix finally showing maturity

ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal — Phoenix badly wanted maturity to come with their growth as a team, especially after the Fuel Masters somehow botched a twie-to-beat edge as the no. 2 seed to end last season in teh 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup. Early in the 2019 Philippine Cup, it appears that the Fuel Masters have found some of that maturity and are using that to win close games in the All-Filipino. Two games into the new season, Phoenix already has two overtimes. The Fuel Masters won both, allowing them to take over first place so far. “Phoenix of the past would’ve lost that game,” Wright said of their overtime win against TNT Saturday at the Ynares Center here. “After Pogoy hit that shot to tie the game, we would’ve crumbled by then. But we stuck together, we’re becoming more experience and we’re becoming more of a veteran team,” he added. Another great sign for Phoenix has been the team’s conditioning. Also known as a pressing team, the Fuel Masters have shown great endurance despite playing back-to-back overtime games. Phoenix certainly looked like the fresher team during the extra five minutes in separate wins against Meralco and TNT. “I’m just happy we won, because like you said, back-to-back overtime games. We really have to dig down deep in those kind of situations. I’m happy that we looked like the more conditioned team,” Wright said. “We came off an overtime game so we’re much more experienced in that department than they are. Luckily they’re tired towards the end of the game and they were starting to miss their shots. That’s just credit to our strength and conditioning coaches and how we run our practices. We thought we’re in really good shape today,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
