Siakam scores winning basket, Raptors beat Suns 111-109

By Ian Harrison, Associated Press TORONTO (AP) — Pascal Siakam scored the winning basket just before time expired and the Toronto Raptors beat the Phoenix Suns 111-109 on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time). Serge Ibaka put Toronto up 109-107 on a hook shot with 47 seconds left, but Mikal Bridges tied it with a pair of free throws with 13 seconds remaining. Toronto gave the ball to Siakam, whose driving shot bounced off the backboard and fell through the rim as time ran out. The basket was confirmed following a video review.

Devin Booker scored 30 points, Deandre Ayton had 15 points and 17 rebounds, and Kelly Oubre Jr. scored 18 for the Suns. Fred VanVleet had 15 points and C.J. Miles returned after missing three of the previous four games because of a sore right hip to score 13 as Toronto swept back-to-back season series against Phoenix for the first time. Kawhi Leonard (rest) sat as the Raptors played the second game of a back-to-back, Lowry was originally expected to rest, but told coach Nick Nurse he wanted to play as he works his way back into shape after missing time with a sore back. The Raptors are an NBA-best 8-1 in the second game of back-to-backs this season. This was their ninth of 12 such sets. Lowry finished with eight assists, giving him 5,002 for his career. He's one of 10 active players to reach the mark. Phoenix was up 78-77 to begin the fourth, but Toronto took the lead at 88-87 when the Suns' Josh Jackson fouled Toronto's Chris Boucher on a dunk with 7:50 to go. Jackson argued the call and was ejected after picking up his second technical foul. After video review, the foul on Boucher was ruled flagrant. Toronto made both its foul shots and got the ball back, with Lowry hitting a triple to put the Raptors up 95-87. The Raptors made 13-of-20 shots from the field in the first, including shooting 4-of-9 from three-point range, to lead 32-20 after one. Ayton scored seven points and Booker had six as the Suns closed the gap. Phoenix trailed 57-49 at halftime. TIP-INS Suns: Jackson scored seven points in 19 minutes before being ejected. ...

PBA: Magnolia muse Sharon Cuneta shrugs off online bashers

BOCAUE, BULACAN -- Megastar Sharon Cuneta just shrugged off online bashers critical of her selection as the Magnolia Hotshots muse in the opening of the 44th PBA season here. Cuneta, an endorser of the poultry products of the compan, represented the newly-crowned Governors' Cup champions as they were introduced one by one. When the announcement was made that she would be the muse last Tuesday, an online firestorm erupted, bashing Cuneta for primarily her age.

Sayang wala si Captain Alvin kasi last time na I was a muse for Purefoods, it was the team ni Alvin," shared Cuneta. The 53-year old veteran actress and singer is no stranger to being the muse of the franchise, and accompanied Purefoods back in 1990 when Alvin Patrimonio and Jojo Lastimosa led the charge. It was a star-studded affair for all 12 squads, who brought lovely ladies to accompany them to the makeshift podium at the Philippine Arena floor.

ONE Championship: Edward Kelly looks to settle score in rematch with Christian Lee

Edward "The Ferocious" Kelly has his sights fixed on capturing the most convincing victory of his professional career as he faces Singapore's Christian "The Warrior" Lee for the second time.   Both men are slated to lock horns at ONE: ETERNAL GLORY, which takes place at the Istora Senayan in Jakarta, Indonesia on 19 January.   Kelly and Lee initially crossed paths at ONE: BEYOND THE HORIZON in September 2018, where Kelly won by disqualification after the latter’s suplex was deemed illegal by the referee in the first round.   While a victory was added to Kelly's record, it was not exactly the kind of victory he trained and hoped for from a bout that promised fireworks.   “The Ferocious” knows that having his hand raised in the rematch will be no walk in the park, but he likes his chances against the exceptional 20-year-old from Singapore   "I learned that I should never give my back to him, and that he will come to attack every second," Kelly said.   "I think this fight could go to the judges if I am unable to catch him with a big shot. I feel he is well prepared for my style. We both do not want to lose to each other."   Kelly concedes that there is an added pressure to perform as his stable, Team Lakay, is coming off an unprecedented run in 2018.   "There is an added pressure for me to perform and open the year on a high note for Team Lakay. I am the first to fight this 2019, so I am planning to give it my all when I get inside the cage," he stated.   "The target is to start the year right for Team Lakay. I want to beat Christian Lee, and then hopefully get a crack at the ONE Featherweight World Title in the near future."   Known for his tremendous power in his strikes, Kelly stressed that if the opportunity to score a finish presents itself against Lee, he will not think twice to grab it.   "His relentlessness is his strength, but can also be his weakness. I need to pick my shots, maximize my striking and be careful with his takedowns,” he explained. “Should the opening present itself, I am definitely going for a knockout.".....»»
