PBA: Standhardinger and Tautuaa trade places in big swap

Big PBA trade alert. As announced by the league Monday, Christian Standhardinger is out of San Miguel Beer. The Fil-German forward is headed to Northport for fellow former top pick Mo Tautuua. Standhardinger was taken by San Miguel first in 2017 after a controversial trade with Columbian. He’s a two-time PBA champion with the Beermen. Tautuaa was TNT’s first pick in 2015 and was traded to the Batang Pier for Terrence Romeo. Mo joins Terrence in San Miguel as the Beermen go for a Grand Slam in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Standhardinger joins Gilas hours after trade away from SMB

A big-time trade was announced Monday when San Miguel Beer sent Christian Standhardinger to Northport for Mo Tautuaa. A few hours later, both big men were at the Meralco Gym to practice for Gilas Pilipinas. Standhardinger suited up for Gilas’ 5x5 SEA Games team and Mo practiced with his 3x3 squad. Christian was excused from talking to the media but was a total pro in training says Gilas head coach Tim Cone. “I’m proud of him for coming,” Cone said. “It really showed me that he really wants to be here,” he added. Just mere hours after finding out he was part of a blockbuster trade, it would have been understandable for Standhardinger to excuse himself from extra practice. But him choosing to participate in Gilas training shows what kind of player Standhardinger is says Cone. On his personal observations alone, coach Tim is confident that Christian will be unleashed at Northport. “I think he’s gonna be a monster at Northport,” Cone said. “It’s tough to back up a June Mar, a five-time MVP. He’s gonna go out there and he his own man and I think he’s gonna put up monster numbers, that’s just my opinion,” Coach Tim added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Tautuaa likes his fit with loaded SMB

The other half of the big-time trade that shook up the PBA Monday was Mo Tautuaa. Just like Christrian Standhardinger, Mo was at the Meralco gym a few hours after the fact for Gilas practice. Unlike Standhardinger, who excused himself from talking to the media, Tautuaa has given his thoughts on the trade that landed him at San Miguel Beer. “I’m still trying to digest it you know. That’s how it works, you gotta go with what you got. It was news to me,” he said. “I thought I was doing well at Northport and now I’m over at San Miguel. I’m happy that I get to play the game some more,” Tautuaa added. San Miguel will be Mo’s third team in the PBA after TNT and Northport. Now playing with five-time MVP June Mar Fajardo, Tautuaa is excited about his fit with the Beermen. “I think I’ll fit fine. Playing against June Mar, I know how he plays,” Mo said. “And I feel like they have an established inside presence and they need an inside-outside relief. Just different looks. I’m gonna try my best to be what they need,” he added. Tautuaa said he got a call from his former team regarding the trade and he adds that he’s in good terms with the Batang Pier. “They gave me a call, it was professionally done. They gave me a call and made sure everything was checked out before I find out on the internet,” Mo said. “They gave me a heads up. It’s all good terms you know. They love me over there and I love my Northport family,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Northport hits two birds with one stone vs. Phoenix

Northport hit two birds with one stone Saturday in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup. Phoenix is the only team the Batang Pier have not beaten since last season, being 0-5 against the Fuel Masters. But with an 80-70 win at the Big Dome, Northport finally snapped that losing skid. It’s even better because the Batang Pier likewise ended a four-game slide in the Governors’ Cup, improving to 2-4 in the team standings. “Seriously speaking, law of averages lang. 0-5 kami dyan sa Phoenix, di pa kami nanalo since last season,” head coach Pido Jarencio said. “It’s about time na manalo naman tayo,” he added. With another long losing skid this conference, the Phoenix game was practically a must-win for Northport. They got the job done and now the Batang Pier have life again. “This win is for the management and the players. They deserve this. Medyo bugbog na. Kapag sunod-sunod na talo, minsan kapag practice wala nang pumapasok sa mga utak nila eh,” Jarencio said. “At least nagkaroon ng konting blessing satin. Blessing naman yan lahat. Maganda yung galawan, maganda yung laro, maganda yung depensa. Sana magtuloy-tuloy na lang,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Phoenix thinking big picture with injured Matthew Wright

Phoenix still can’t get anything substansial in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup, being stuck with a 2-5 record. Worse, the Fuel Masters’ top local star in Mattthew Wright has been compromised with plantar fasciitis. Wright has been playing sparingly during Phoenix’s last few games and while he told head coach Louie Alas that he can manage, Alas has chosen not to put his franchise player in any more risk. Saturday against Northport, Wright started but only played six minutes. “Nakikita ko he’s one step late sa lahat ng situation,” Alas said of Wright. “Ayoko namang ma-aggravate yung plantar niya so I just gave him the rest. Kapag ganun yun, magpipilit nang magpipilit yun so baka lalong sumakit,” he addded. Phoenix has almost two weeks of break before its next game and with a slim chance of still making the playoffs, having Wright healthy to end the conference is the best play for the Fuel Masters. “Sakin iniisip ko na bigger picture,” Alas said of Wright. “Pahinga ko na lang para sa mga future games namin,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: McDaniels scores 51 in TNT comeback win over Bolts

TNT may have just truly unleashed KJ McDaniels. The KaTropa overcame a slow start Saturday to turn down Meralco in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup, taking a 116-113 win at the Big Dome. McDaniels shot 68 percent and scored 51 points, leading TNT’s comeback from 19 down. He also had 10 rebounds and four blocks in the win. With the victory, the KaTropa are still in solo first place with a 6-0 record and an early playoff berth. After McDaniels, RR Pogoy scored 23 and Jayson Castro had 21 as TNT overcame a 16-point first quarter by dropping 100 the rest of the way. Meralco saw its three-game run snapped with the loss and dropped to 3-2 in the team standings. Two-time Best Import Allen Durham led the Bolts with 43 points, 12 rebounds, and nine assists, but his final three to send the game in overtime barely missed the mark.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Fuller or Blakely? Elite have big decision to make at import slot

Despite putting up a near quadruple-double and leading Blackwater to their first and only win so far in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup, Marqus Blakely has been replaced as Elite import. Blakely sat out Friday’s loss against Columbian and taking his place was Aaron Fuller, Blackwater’s original choice who was injured prior to the start of the conference. Despite being replaced, Blakely said it’s only fair for the Elite to give the fit-again Fuller a chance. “It was just a fairness decision, I think. Having played last game against Northport, I think coaches felt like they needed to give Aaron a chance to see if he's healthy, if he's able to play,” Blakely said. “I totally agree with it, I understand that it's a business,” he added. Just having two active imports in one team is already awkward says Blakely. However, the situation is out of his control. Blakely just says that he understands that Fuller needs the chance to prove himself to the Elite as well. “We understand the business and the nature of the game, so that's what it is. It's out of our power at that point,” Blakely said. “That's why I felt like coach had to give him a chance to prove himself just like he gave me a chance to prove myself,” he added. For his part, Fuller just wants to give Blackwater wins, which is the whole point of coming over. He definitely doesn’t feel good about losing his debut game with Blackwater, which ended up dropping the team to 1-3 for the conference. “I just wanted to come in and just do what I do best,” Fuller said after scoring 26 points for Blackwater in his first game. “Just try to help the team any way I can. I wanted to get the win but unfortunately, it didn’t happen,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
