PBA: Job’s not done even as TNT locks up top seed

With yet another impressive win, TNT has locked up the no. 1 seed in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup playoffs. By punishing the Magnolia Hotshots Wednesday, the KaTropa have won eight straight games and will enter the playoffs as the league’s no. 1 team. A perk of that is that TNT will have a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals against Alaska or Meralco. A nice winning streak and a no. 1 ranking naturally has the KaTropa happy. However, the job is far from over. No team gets awarded a title after finishing first in the elimination round. “Tuwang-tuwa lahat, yung mag coaches pati mga boss,” guard RR Pogo said. “Pero di pa tapos eh. May quarters pa, semis. Di pa tapos,” he added. Since taking an early beating at the hands of Northport, who ended up taking the no. 2 seed, TNT has been on a tear. Behind super import Terrence Jones, the KaTropa have been practically unstoppable in their eight-game run. That streak should give the team a much-needed boost for the playoffs. “Siguro dagdag kumpiyansa samin to lalo na papuntang playoffs. Sinusunod lang talaga namin kung ano yung game plan ni coach. Nagbunga naman so sana tuluy-tuloy na to sa playoffs,” Pogoy said. “Mindset talaga namin kahit anong mangyari, number 1 or number 2, every game talagang nilalaro namin. Yun laging sinasabi ni coach,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Terrence Jones new tropa wants to send him back to the NBA

Over the last couple of seasons, the PBA has seen its share of super imports. Ginebra’s Justin Brownlee immediately comes to mind. Meralco’s Allen Durham and Phoenix’s Eugene Phelps fit in that mold too. Alaska’s Mike Harris is in that list as well. The uber-talented Glen Rice Jr. could have made it if he just got it together. But for the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, TNT brought not just any other import. Tired of underperforming for the past few conferences, the KaTropa went ahead and signed former Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones for the mid-season joust. With Jones, TNT went the super — SUPER — import route and it has been worth every penny for the KaTropa, at least so far.   ROCKET MAN Many former NBA players have played in the PBA before, that’s not a new thing. But what makes Jones special is that he’s at his peak of his powers now as he plays his first stint in the PBA. Jones is a former first-round pick and was a legitimate NBA contributor. In his best NBA season, in 2013-2014 for Houston, Jones started 71 games and had career-high numbers of 12.1 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. This dude is legit. “Oo iba, iba siya talaga,” guard RR Pogoy said of Jones. (Yes, he’s really different). In just one conference, Pogoy and Jones have clicked as teammates. Terrence has admitted that RR is one of his favorite local targets when he’s trying to spot an open teammate when opposing teams double on him. Pogoy admits that Jones is one of the best, if not the best, import he’s ever played with. “Pwedeng-pwede pa siya talaga sa NBA eh. Iba yung skills niya,” he added. (He could still play in the NBA. His skills are just different).   THE DIFFERENCE TNT has ran pretty much the same system for years. Whether you like this team or now, they know what style they want to play andd they identify players that fit that system well. The KaTropa have dominated the PBA without a traditional big man. Ask other teams, they’ve been blindsided and bamboozled by a TNT offense led by diminutive point guards like Jimmy Alapag and Jayson Castro. However, the KaTropa have hit another rough patch. The team hasn’t made it to the PBA semifinals since 2017. Their 2018 campaign was a lot like the horror 2016 year with the only difference being three seasons ago, they actually made it to the semifinals of the Governors’ Cup as a no. 1 seed. Last year, they won zero playoff games and missed the playoffs altogether once so in essence, 2018 was a worse nightmare for the KaTropa. It didn’t help that in the previous All-Filipino, they were practically a missed 24-second violation away from ending the San Miguel Beer Philippine Cup dynasty. The winning formula no longer works for TNT. Or at the very least, it’s not as effective. Enter Terrence Jones. “Malaking tulong talaga siya sa team namin. Kung ano yung kulang samin, parang fit na fit talaga siya eh. Napa-dali na lang yung mga buhay namin sa basketball,” Pogoy said of Jones. (He’s a big help to our team. What we lack, he fits right in. Our basketball lives are easier with him). “Yung rebounding tsaka yung pagka-shot blocker niya [malaking tulong]. Naiilang din yun kalaban namin eh, sa rebound naman naco-control namin kasi may malaki na kami, yun naman talaga kulang namin,” Pogoy added. (His rebounding and his presence as a shot blocker is a huge help). In 10 games so far, Jones is averaging 14.9 rebounds per game. That may not seem much for an import but he’s never had fewer than 10 in a game and has hit a high 22 rebounds. His shot blocking has helped TNT shore up its overall defense as well with Jones averaging 2.9 rejections a game with his three best performances coming against Columbian (7 blocks), Ginebra (6 blocks), and San Miguel (5 blocks). The last two teams feature perhaps the two best frontlines in the league today by a wide margin. Aside from his defensive presences, Jones is a force on offense as well, averaging 34.5 points on close to 50 percent shooting. He’s hit over 30 points eight times and over 40 points four times. Scoring will be a given for a player of his caliber but what sets him apart is his ability to locate open teammates and willingly pass the ball to them. Jones is good for at least four assists in every game and he’s topped out at 16 dimes so far. In 10 games, he’s rounding up to 7.7 assists per outing which leads all imports, and the whole league actually. “Talagang willing passer siya, hinahanap din niya talaga yung mga kasama niya. Kumbaga di niya inaako lahat yung scoring load,” forward Troy Rosario said of his new frontcourt tandem in Jones. (He’s a willing passer. He really tries to find his teammates and he’s not trying to shoulder all the scoring load). “Kami ready pa rin kami lagi. Syempre yung experience niya sa NBA talagang pinapakita niya dito, natutulungan din niya kami kung saan kami dapat lumugar sa plays kasi advanced na siya eh, kahit di na sabihin ni coach alam na niya dapat gawin,” he added. (We’re just ready as locals. He’s really showing his NBA experience here, he’s helping us to where we need to be on plays because he’s so advanced he knows what to do even before coach tells us).   THE LEADER Aside from putting up big numbers across the board, there’s one underrated factor about Terrence Jones that has led to him making a positive impact on TNT. Jones made an effort to be a leader for the KaTropa and his teammates have rallied behind him for sure. The result is in the way they play and the way they win in the Commissioner’s Cup. “I think it’s come to them [TNT locals] listening and understanding that I have a little experience on what it takes to try to win and be a good teammate,” Jones said of his leadership role with the KaTropa and how it worked out. “They listened and understood that and we’ve been having fun ever since,” he added. TNT is full of alpha-level players but Jones’ NBA resume has certainly helped in making them line up behin their import and provide support. The the KaTropa have been running like a well-oiled machince with that set up. “Leadership pa lang niya ang laking tulong na samin. As locals, ginagawa lang namin kung ano dapat namin gawin para maka-contribute din and para matulungan din siya,” Rosario said. (His leadership alone is a big help for us. As locals, we just try to do what we need to do to contribute and to help him out). “Magaling siya, isa talaga siya mga leader namin ngayon. Talagang nili-lift up niya kami, di lang sa salita pati sa gawa,” Pogoy added. (He’s great, he’s one of our leaders now. He really lifts us up not just with words but with action as well)   THE LONG ROAD BACK TO THE ASSOCIATION It would be incredible if TNT ends up having Terrence Jones as a resident import the same way Ginebra has Justin Brownlee or Phoenix has Eugene Phelps or Meralco having Allen Durham. However, the KaTropa know that their super import still has a good shot of returning to the NBA and they plan on helping him get back there. “Syempre goal namin makapasok sa playoffs, nagawa na namin yun. Ang susunod na step is next round sa playoffs. Malaking tulong din yun sa kanya kasi yung pangalan niya bumabango ulit,” Rosario said. (Our goal is to make the playoffs and we did that. Now the next step is to get to the next round of the playoffs. That’s a big help for him to get his name out there again). “Preparation na rin kasi alam namin na after dito, meron siyang invites sa mga training camps,” he added. (It’s also good preparation because we know after this, he has some invites to camps). With TNT at 9-1 and a top-2 seed in the playoffs, the team is certainly favored to win in the Commissioner’s Cup. And perhaps one of Jones’ best ways to once again get some traction is to put up great numbers for a championship team in a big league like the PBA. There’s a big check mark on the numbers part and while he can’t win a title by his lonesome, Jones has an entire tropa that has his back. “Lalo na kung mag-champion kami, mabango yung pangalan niya di ba?” Pogoy said. (If we win the championship, that’s good for his name, right?). “Marami naman nags-scout diyan, nakikita siya and maganda pinapakita niya. Feel ko [kaya bumalik sa NBA],” he added. (There’s people that scout him, seeing him and how good he’s been performing. I feel [he can make it back to the NBA]). Of course, winning a PBA championship does not directly award Jones and NBA roster spot. However, he appreciates that his team backs him up in that regard. Right now TNT’s super import is just concerned about playing well with his team and winning more games. “I appreciate it, I wish nothing but the best for all my teammates as well,” Jones said. “I hope you guys see that while we’re playing, we’re smiling and enjoying one another when anybody scores. It’s just like a family atmosphere,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Phoenix feeling the absence of Calvin Abueva

Safe to say, Phoenix has felt the absence of Calvin Abueva. The Beast has been tamed by an indefinite suspension by the PBA following a weekend of controversies to start the team’s campaign in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup. So far, that suspension has covered eight games in the mid-season joust. The Fuel Masters are 3-5 in those eight games for a record of 4-6 overall. As such, Phoenix is in danger of missing the playoffs after bing a top-2 seed in each of the last two conferences. “Kasi alam naman natin lahat kung ano dinadala ni Calvin eh. Medyo high risk pero high reward din naman,” head coach Louie Alas said of his enigmatic forward. “Yun nga yung ina-ano namin sa kanya ngayon. Ire-rehab yung anger management. Di naman anger management, pero yung pagre-react lang niya sa situation. Pero yun si Calvin, dun siya effective eh. Sabi ko sa kanya mag-tone down ka lang kasi kapag na-check mo yung emotions mo, wala naman tayong problema sayo. Mabait ka namang tao eh,” he added. Alas said that Calvin has taken some measures to get him reinstated. He’s been in communication with the PBA and the Games and Amusements Board. However, the nature of his suspension remains confusing. He’s indefinitely suspended which could mean he could be back tomorrow or next year. There’s no set time really and all Calvin does is wait for the moment. “Kanina ko lang nalaman na sumulat pala yung GAB, kailangan din sumulat si Calvin to explain kung ano talaga yung lahat ng nangyari, yung sa kanila lang ni [Terrence] Jones,” Alas said. “Basta explain lang kung ano side ni Calvin. Syempre iba rin 'yung side ng kabila. Basta written explanation. Tinanong ko nga kanina kung kailangan mag-appear, hindi raw basta sulat lang kung ano talaga yung chronology nung nangyari sa sitwasyon. Hopefully. Sana kung 'di man ngayon, makalaro next conference,” he added. Calvin has not been practicing with Phoenix, out of respect to the PBA’s suspension. However, Abueva is doing his individual workouts at Phoenix’s facility to stay in shape and be ready for when he’s allowed to come back. “Nagpupunta siya sa Upper Deck. Sa Upper Deck kami may gym kami sa taas, dun siya,” Alas said of Calvin. “Pagkatapos ng team practice siya naman yung bumababa, dun nags-shooting. Pero talagang di inallow muna ng governor, due respect muna sa PBA,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Coach Chito just glad Magnolia’s fate still in its own hands

Magnolia has dropped three games in a row in the 2019 Commissioner's Cup. Frustrated by Rain or Shine, Wednesday at Araneta Coliseum, the Hotshots now find themselves standing at the sixth spot with a 5-5 record. Not only that, their entry into the quarterfinals had also been delayed for the third straight time. Of course, head coach Chito Victolero could only lament his team's untimely slide. "Mabigat, mahirap. Siguro, we have to check ourselves," he told reporters post-game. With all but one team eliminated from contention, the magic number for the next round is six - and for two weeks now, Magnolia has been just a win short of that. Despite not making good on their last three tries, though, they have one last shot at locking up a place in the quarterfinals. "We need to have that sense of urgency doon sa next game namin which is the only chance na makakasiguro kami sa quarterfinals," their mentor said. Only, that will have to come against a red-hot TNT side which just clinched the overall top-seed, which has won all of its last seven games, and which has Best Import frontrunner Terrence Jones shining bright. "Wala kaming choice e. Wala na tayong magagawa dun," coach Chito answered after being asked about their upcoming heavyweight bout. "Kailangan namin yun harapin and malay mo, swertehin 'di ba?" In the face of the odds, Magnolia chooses to look at the positives. "Nakatatlong try kami and medyo hindi kami sinwerte and this is another chance. Ang maganda lang doon, nasa kamay pa rin namin," the veteran tactician said. And one thing's for sure, the Hotshots will go all-out once more for that elusive playoff berth-clinching win. As coach Chito put it, "Ang maganda nito, medyo malayo pa yun and we can review everything. We need to stay positive lang kasi wala namang maitutulong yung negativity." He then continued, "Kilala ko naman yung team ko, kung gaano sila katibay, kung gaano sila kabeterano, and kung gaano katindi yung dibdib nila.".....»»

PBA: SMB hoping for the best as Terrence dislocates finger

San Miguel had another big win Wednesday to continue its push toward the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup playoffs but the Beermen still had some problems to deal with after the game. Guard Terrence Romeo, only in his second game back this conference, left the Phoenix game early with what appeared to be a finger injury. Terrence scored 13 points and added four assists in 17 and a half minutes of play. “Terrence dislocated his pinkie, but he was able to put it back,” head coach Leo Austria said of his point guard. “I think he will be okay, I hope di mamaga yung left pinkie niya,” he added. Hopefully, Romeo’s injury is just minor and won’t cost him any missed games. Since he came back, together with the arrival of new import Chris McCullough, the Beermen have been rolling. San Miguel has won back-to-back games for a 4-5 record and the Beermen are officially back in playoff contention. “I'm happy to see him again dahil alam natin kung anong value niya sa team namin, medyo lumalim 'yung rotation namin sa guards position,” Austria said of Romeo. “If he will be healthy, I think we could achieve our goal at least dun sa number six or number five. Right now, it is possible,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

After earthquake, NBA Summer League resumes

By The Associated Press Tony Bradley had 19 points and 14 rebounds and the Utah Jazz defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 78-68 on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) as NBA Summer League play resumed in Las Vegas one day after an earthquake in the area forced two games to be shortened and another to be canceled. The NBA Summer League games are being played at two venues — the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion at UNLV. The NBA said a survey was completed by two separate independent structural engineers on Saturday, which determined the facilities were safe. Get your first look at the NBA’s top Rookies during NBA Summer League LIVE on NBA League Pass! The overhead scoreboard at the Thomas & Mack Center swayed during the quake, which caused major concern about safety. The floor in the Cox arena sustained minor damage that was repaired. Bradley was 9-of-14 to lead the Jazz to a win at the Cox Pavilion. Justin Wright-Foreman and Miye Oni each had 14 points for the Jazz (1-0). Oklahoma City (0-1) was led by 20 points from Hamidou Diallo and 11 points and 12 rebounds from Kevin Hervey. PISTONS 93, TRAIL BLAZERS 73 Over at the Thomas & Mack Center, the Detroit Pistons (2-0) got 18 points from Svi Mykhailiuk and 17 points and 10 assists from Bruce Brown in a lopsided win over the Portland Trail Blazers (0-1). The Pistons made 15 3-pointers. Portland was led by 15 points by Anfernee Simons and 13 from Devin Robinson. Rookie first-round draft pick Nassir Little struggled, finishing with two points on 1-of-6 shooting in 22 minutes. BUCKS 89, HAWKS 83 Bonzie Colson had 18 points and Jock Landale chipped in with 13 points and eight rebounds as the Bucks (1-1) held off the Hawks. Milwaukee held Atlanta to 34-percent shooting from the floor. Jordan Sibert led the Hawks with 22 points. He was 4-of-14 from the field but made all 10 free throw attempts. Tahjere McCall added 16 points and seven rebounds for Atlanta (0-1), who only played eight players. CELTICS 96, 76ERS 82 Carsen Edwards had a standout debut in Las Vegas, scoring 20 points on five three-pointers as the Celtics pulled away from the 76ers. Edwards, the 33rd overall pick in the draft from Purdue, finished 7-of-17 from the field and added three steals. Grant Williams finished with 12 points and six rebounds in his debut for the Celtics, while the team’s other first-round pick Romeo Langford sat out with a thumb injury. Rookie Matisse Thybulle led the 76ers (1-1) with 15 points on four 3-pointers, while Zhaire Smith and Marial Shayok each had 14. NOTES: Several players who are expected to play in Las Vegas couldn’t join their new teams because their rights were traded at the June 20 draft in deals that were unofficial until Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). Among those was KZ Okpala of the Miami Heat, who joined his new franchise for the first time Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) and is expected to make his Summer League debut on Sunday (Monday, PHL time). Okpala watched Miami’s first four summer games on television and says he’s “just trying to stay ready.”.....»»
