PBA: Beermen close in on Finals after 16-point comeback win over Alaska

Chalk this one up as another sensational comeback for defending champion San Miguel. The Beermen erased a 16-point lead Monday at the Big Dome, scoring a 105-94 victory over Alaska in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup semifinals. With the win, San Miguel has taken a commanding 2-0 lead against the rival Aces. This semis series is only a best-of-3. After losing the series opener, Alaska came out hot, scoring 29 points in the opening period for an 11-point lead. The Aces continued to pound on the Beermen and Alaska eventually took a 16-point lead, 41-25, approaching halftime. However, the Beermen stormed back to start the second half with Renaldo Balkman and Chris Ross combining for 25 points in the third period as the champs took over. Alaska responded in the fourth with Vic Manuel at the lead, keeping things close before San Miguel turned to its usual strong finishing kick to secure the victory. "Nahirapan talaga kami ng first half. Buti na lang nag-step up and we realized na threatening ang kanilang nilalaro," head coach Leo Austria said. "Makikita naman natin na all out sila. We’re lucky na we’re able to come back. In this game, especially the end game, na-miss nila sila Banchero at Abueva, but diskarte nila yun. Wala silang magagawa dahil yun ang mga consequences na beyond their control," he added. Balkman led the Beermen with 31 points, 25 in the second half. June Mar Fajardo added 21 points and 18 rebounds while Chris Ross dropped 16 for San Miguel. For Alaska, Diamon Simpson and Simon Enciso scored 19 each but the no. 2 Aces, who are still missing Calvin Abueva (team-imposed suspension) and Chris Banchero (personal reasons) are officially on the brink. Game 3 is set for Wednesday still at the Big Dome.   The Scores: San Miguel (105): Balkman 31, Fajardo 21, Ross 16, Cabagnot 14, Lassiter 8, Santos 5, Nabong 5, Heruela 3, Standhardinger 2 Alaska (94): Simpson 19, Enciso 19, Manuel 15, Teng 13, Casio 12, Thoss 6, Cruz 5, Galliguez 3, Racal 2, Exciminiano 0, Baclao 0 Quarterscores: 18-29, 41-52, 79-74, 105-94 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: No changing anything for Vic Manuel even after foul-plagued Game 2

At one point in the ongoing 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, Vic Manuel scored 20 points or more for 11 games in a row. That personal hot streak put up his conference averages at 24 points in 58 percent shooting on top of 6.4 rebounds. In Game 2 of Alaska’s semifinals series against defending champion San Miguel on Monday, however, the frontrunner for Best Player of the Conference was held down to just 15 points and three rebounds in only 22 minutes. Much of his impact came in the second half when the Beermen made their run. “Three fouls kasi ako agad kaya inupo na ako ni coach second quarter pa lang tas medyo matagal ako nagpahinga. Siguro, mali kong nagkaroon ako ng tatlong foul nang maaga,” he told reporters post-game. He then continued, “Kahit papaano, nakatulong pa rin ako, pero kinapos pa rin kami.” Indeed, Manuel’s 14 points in the last 15 minutes of the game proved too little, too late and the Aces fell, 94-105, onto a 0-2 hole in the best-of-five series. Even though he was unable to play up to his standards because of foul trouble, the burly forward said he will not be changing anything about his game for the next game. “Sa Game 3, mas magiging aggressive ako,” he said, full of confidence. He then continued, “Sabi naman nila coach na kung anong ginagawa ko, i-continue ko lang at wag kong baguhin. Basta focused lang ako lalo sa susunod na game.” After all, Alaska will need their top gun to take the lead in the fight as they try to stay alive in the conference. “Basta kami, pagdating ng Game 3, lalaban pa rin kami. Ngayong Game 2, kinapos lang kami, pero ‘di pa rin kami susuko,” he expressed. He then continued, “’Di namin basta-basta ibibigay yung Game 3 at yung series na ‘to.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA: End-game struggles doom Diamon Simpson, Alaska in Game 2

Looking to even up their 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup semifinals series against defending champions San Miguel, the Alaska Aces got off to a strong start, courtesy of import Diamon Simpson. In the opening period, Simpson put up ten points to help the Aces to a 29-18 lead over the Beermen after the first 12 minutes of action. Then, everything began to slip. Alaska saw their lead, which was as high as 16 points at one point, slowly slip away. In the end, the Beermen escaped with a 105-94 win to move within just a win away from another Finals berth. Alaska, once again, was left looking for answers. “Yeah, it was tough, it was a tough game.” Simpson said following the loss. After his ten-point explosion in the first period, six-foot-seven forward out of Los Angeles scored a total of nine points in the final three quarters to finish with 19 points to go with 15 rebounds. “They played really good. That’s a good team. On to the next game.” Simpson added. Throughout the game, things were pretty physical between Simpson and San Miguel import Renaldo Balkman, but says that it wasn’t what caused him to go cold in the last three quarters. It was simply about not making his shots. “Nah, I just, I missed a lot of shots and I could’ve played better, I feel. [Balkman] played well, credit to him.” Now just one more loss away from calling it a conference, Simpson and the Aces will need to find a way to fight back to keep their season alive. “We have to focus more and compete harder. That’s what our goal should be.” Game 3 between Alaska and San Miguel will be on Wednesday, July 18th at the Araneta Coliseum......»»

PBA: After ordeal, Jeron Teng happy to be helping Alaska on the court again

Monday night in their 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup semifinals Game 2 loss to San Miguel, Jeron Teng finished with 13 points, three rebounds, and three assists in 21 minutes for the Alaska Aces. And while it was a loss that pushed Alaska to the brink of elimination, head coach Alex Compton saw a bit of a silver lining in Teng’s performance. “I thought he did a great job. It's been a crazy time for Jeron but for him to start to get his timing back and play more, be in better shape, I don't think you would think that Jeron got stabbed a month ago and we'd be worried about his life at the hospital.” A little over a month ago, Teng, along with former DLSU teammates Thomas Torres and Norbert Torres were involved in a scuffle that led to all three getting deep lacerations.  Teng’s perfomance in Game 2 was his best since the unfortunate incident. “If you watched the game and didn't know the situation, you would have never thought that that happened. To be able to play 21 minutes and mix it up, I thought it was great.” Compton added. Indeed, it has been a whirlwind couple of weeks for Teng, but more than anything, he’s just thankful to be on the floor and contributing again. “Well siyempre, after the incident, sarap lang talaga maglaro ng basketball ulit, I’m just happy I’m back again, playing and helping my teammates.” And while he did put up solid numbers, Teng believes that he could do more, especially now that their backs are against the wall. “Next game lang, we just have to play better. I have to play better parin kasi siyempre we lost, may mga points of improvement pa ako from this game, and it’s another experience from me.” As thankful as he was to be back on the court again, Teng also expressed his gratitude to the Alaska organization, who has been with him through all of this. “Siyempre it feels great, with the incident, the whole Alaska organization was behind me talaga, they supported me, they visited me, even si Boss [Wilfred] Uytengsu and yung mga coaches, they visited me in the hospital and they’re really supportive with what happened and the case na on-going, so sobrang thankful ko talaga sa kanila, sa buong Alaska organization.” Now, with the bitter memories of that fateful night in BGC behind him, Teng is just hungry to win and hopefully to help his team to a title. “Ako, gustong-gusto ko talaga maka-abot ng finals eh, mag-champion.” For Teng, a title would help remove the sting of the ordeal. “After ng incident, siguro pag nag-champion kami, makakalimutan ko na yun.” It’s going to be an uphill battle for Teng and the Aces to even come close to a finals berth however, as they’re now down 2-0 in a best-of-five series against the defending champions. Teng and the Aces face San Miguel in Game 3 on Wednesday, July 18th at the Araneta Coliseum......»»
