PBA: Game 4 was Ginebra s do-or-die game says LA

Game 4 of the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup Finals was Ginebra's do-or-die game against San Miguel. Lose and the Gin Kings go down 1-3 to the Beermen. Not exactly ideal. That's why Ginebra was almost required to have a good outing Friday in order to make these Finals somewhat competitive again and the Gin Kings sure gave a worthy performance powered by a historic start. The barangay started Game 4 with an emphatic 17-0 run and rolled all 130-100 series-tying victory. Now it's back to square one in this epic Clash of Titans for the PBA Commissioner's Cup. "This is our do-or-die game against San Miguel," guard LA Tenorio said. "We all know how strong San Miguel is so going to this game yun na yung mindset namin, do-or-die game na," he added. The great start was crucial for the Gin Kings as each of the first four games of this series ended in blowouts. It was important for Ginebra to set the tone and they did. "Yung start talaga nagse-set ng tone eh, the way we look at the games. We always expect close games every game, di rin namin inexpect na magiging ganito talaga. We just need a one-point win, yun lang kailangan namin. What's important is we get the W," Tenorio said. "[Coach Tim] challenged us. Game 3, talagang pinakita ng San Miguel na mas malakas sila samin," he added. In Game 3, Ginebra locals went AWOL as the Beermen issued a sound beatdown. In Game 4 the local crew showed up to help Best Import Justin Brownlee get the job done. Greg Slaughter and Joe Devance scored 19 and 18 points respectively for Ginebra. Tenorio himself had 17 in a starting role. "We cannot be Justin reliant. Di dapat kami mag-rely lang sa kaniya on offense. He's been great but we can't just rely on that," Tenorio said. "We have to duplicate this game for the next game. This game is not good enough for us to win again, we're expecting a stronger San Miguel tulad nung ginawa nila nung Game 2 at Game 3," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

AP Source: Eric Reid among those working out Titans

By Teresa M. Walker, Associated Press NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans will be working out veteran safety Eric Reid in their search for a potential replacement after losing Johnathan Cyprien for the season with a torn left ACL, according to a person familiar with the visit. Reid will work out for the Titans on Friday, a person familiar with Reid's visit told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team does not announce which players it is working out. The Titans will become only the second NFL team to bring Reid in for a visit this year. Reid's visit with the Cincinnati Bengals ended with the safety filing a claim this spring arguing he was unsigned as a result of collusion by NFL owners over his protests of police brutality and racial inequality by kneeling during the anthem. Coach Mike Vrabel said earlier Thursday that the Titans have looked at Reid. "I know we're in the process of talking and trying to bring him in," Vrabel said. "(GM) Jon (Robinson) and I will continue to discuss that and see where it goes. Yes, it's a guy we evaluated and we'll probably try to talk to his rep and see how many guys we can bring in here for a workout." Reid, 26, has been out of work since playing out his contract with San Francisco. He started 69 of 70 games with 10 career interceptions. The safety said in March that he does not plan to protest during the anthem this season if signed by a team. After he filed his collusion claim, the NFL Players Association also filed a non-injury grievance on Reid's behalf in May. Cincinnati owner Mike Brown reportedly asked Reid during their visit whether he would continue to kneel during the anthem. The Titans are looking for help at safety after losing Cyprien. The veteran left practice Wednesday after hurting his left knee during a noncontact play. He grabbed at his knee and then walked to the locker room with trainers, waiving off a cart. Cyprien, who signed a four-year deal last season, started 10 games after dealing with an injured hamstring. Tennessee already has Kendrick Lewis, 30 and with his fourth NFL team, and Demontre Hurst among the other options at safety on the roster. Kenny Vaccaro, who played the last five seasons in New Orleans, and Mike Mitchell also are among veteran safeties currently unsigned. "Devastated to tell you that after checking him out, he tore his ACL and he'll be out for a year, which is tough for me as is a new head coach to watch guys work hard, extremely hard, in the offseason and care about the team and play hard and do everything that we've asked them to do and then not get a chance to experience the NFL season this year," Vrabel said. Tennessee already has All-Pro Kevin Byard at the other safety spot, with Logan Ryan, Adoree Jackson and free agent signee Malcolm Butler at cornerback for a unit that has its sights set on being the NFL's best secondary. Ryan said at least the Titans have time to adjust. "It tests our depth, but some of that's been well-documented that we feel like we have good depth so it's going to show it ...," Ryan said. "This didn't happen the day before the first game. It's giving us time to work out the kinks. They might move me around a little bit and allow me to do more things in the secondary if need be and get more of our guys on the field." ___ AP Pro Football Writer Rob Maaddi contributed to this report......»»

Manny Pacquiao looking at December fight

Newly-crowned WBA (Regular) Welterweight Champion Manny Pacquiao is looking at another fight before the end of 2018. Whether it be a rematch with Jeff Horn, or against other welterweight titans such as former sparring partner Amir Khan, Terence Crawford, or Vasyl Lomachenko, the only eight-division world champion is still unsure of who will he face next in the squared circle. He said in an interview at the ABS-CBN Main Building after his "It's Showtime" appearance that he is looking for another match by December 2. Sen. @mannypacquiao looking at a Dec. 2 fight date, no opponent yet. He also talks about his newly-diagnosed heart condition. @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/sVB3hoQYZ1 — Philip Martin Matel (@philipptionary) July 24, 2018 Despite a diagnosed 'inborn heart problem' after complaining of breathing difficulties before his championship fight with then title-holder Lucas Matthysse, he assured the public that he just underwent a routine procedure and that there's nothing to be alarmed about his condition. "Nag-ECG kami, may nakita ang doktor. So kailangan magpatingin para sigurado na walang problema. Wala namang problema (kay Jinkee) dahil yung doktor naman pag-check up sa akin tinignan yung puso ko, wala namang problema. Healthy naman," the lawmaker said. The 39-year old was even able to insert a cheesy pick-up line for his wife, joking about the medical procedure. "Maganda rin yun noong tinignan yung puso ko, kung ano talaga nasa puso, si Jinkee talaga." He was also satisfied at his MP Promotions' handling of the fight, calling the event successful in promoting and staging the fight card, which saw four championship bouts, though just like any first-time experience, more needs to be polished. "Marami lang mga pagkukulang pero correctable naman sa susunod." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»
