PBA: 20 points for Yap as ROS drives past NLEX

Rain or Shine gets the better of its former coach again. The Elasto Painters beat Yeng Guiao and the NLEX Road Warriors Friday, taking a 96-87 win in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup at the Cuneta Astrodome. ROS, still without Raymond Almazan, became one of the early winners in the new season’s opening week. Almazan, who infamously went AWOL last season, sat out due to a minor injury. Five players scored in double figures for the Elasto Painters in a big team win. James Yap started the new year strong with 20 points while rookie Javee Mocon added 13 points.  — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Kevin Alas sees improvement in NLEX return

Returning NLEX Road Warriors guard Kevin Alas sees that his team and even himself still need fine tuning as the action in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup continues to unravel. Alas, who is playing in his first game since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament last March, came off the bench and contributed 12 points and 4 assists in 29 minutes of playing time. However, his side was not able to carve out a win against the gritty Rain or Shine Elasto Painters side, falling 96-87 at the Cuneta Astrodome Friday evening. “It felt good pero syempre I wanted the win sana kasi we've been doing well sa offseason. They were the better team, personally. But sa akin personally it felt good kasi 8-10 months ako nawala,” said Alas. The team also paraded new big man Poy Erram, who added 10 markers and 5 rebounds to the team. Though it may it may not be impressive numbers in Erram's debut for his new squad, the former Ateneo big man sees opportunity, as he stressed improvement of chemistry with one another. Alas also shared that he was almost sleepless in anticipation of his return, as it was comparable his feelings before his own pro debut some few years back. With his return to the squad, Alas knows he still has a lot to improve upon as he will only get better in time. “I felt comfortable naman kanina. Pero siguro yung hangin ko kulang pa kasi iba yung hangin na nakukuha mo sa practice iba eh so kanina I felt kulang na kulang pa yung hangin ko,” he shared.   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

Rain or Shine rides James Yap’s hot hand to frustrate NLEX

Rain or Shine rode on a vintage performance by James Yap to open its Philippine Cup campaign on a good note, thwarting NLEX, 96-87, Friday in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup at Cuneta Astrodome. Yap turned back the clock, uncorking three straight long bombs to wrest the lead from the Road Warriors in the first half and finish with 20 points and three assists, leading the Elasto Painters in scoring for the first time since pushing them to a semifinals berth July last year. "We had good ball movement, we shared the scoring, and James stepped up big time," said Rain or Shine coach Caloy Garcia. The ElastoPainters kept their iron grip on the lead with the help of Javee Mocon who fir...Keep on reading: Rain or Shine rides James Yap’s hot hand to frustrate NLEX.....»»

Murray, Jokic lead Nuggets to 135-105 rout of Bulls

By Pat Graham, Associated PRess DENVER (AP) — Jamal Murray scored 22 of his 25 points in the third quarter, Nikola Jokic finished two rebounds shy of another triple-double and the Denver Nuggets cruised past Chicago 135-105 on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time) for their 12th straight home win over the Bulls. Chicago hasn't knocked off the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center since Feb. 8, 2006. The Bulls also remain winless in 2019, with their losing streak stretching to nine in a row. Jokic had 18 points and 11 assists as the Nuggets bounced back from a 142-111 drubbing Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) at the hands of Golden State in a matchup of the top two teams in the Western Conference. Lauri Markkanen scored 27 for a Chicago team that finished up a fruitless five-game trip. The Nuggets showed no residual effects from the lopsided loss to the Warriors, in which they allowed an NBA-record, 51-point first quarter. Denver picked up the defensive intensity from the start and limited the Bulls to 47 points at halftime. Denver led by as many as 40. Jokic did a little bit of everything, including a move where he went around the waist with the ball to avoid a defender and drew a foul while making the shot. That kicked up chants of "M-V-P!" The seven-footer from Serbia didn't have his best shooting night, though, missing several easy baskets in finishing 6-of-18 from the field. Bulls coach Jim Boylen took a "charge" late in the first quarter, when Torrey Craig fell on top of him after tumbling out of bounds. The ball was awarded to Chicago. TIP-INS Bulls: Rookie F Wendell Carter Jr. was ruled out with a sprained left thumb. He's day-to-day. ... G Zach LaVine was held to eight points, well below his average of 23.2. Nuggets: G Will Barton missed the game for personal reasons. ... G Gary Harris returned after missing five games with hamstring tightness and scored 14 points in 19 minutes as the Nuggets had seven players in double figures. ... Denver hit a season-high 20 three-pointers. KEEPING THEM FRESH Nuggets coach Michael Malone has been curtailing practices to keep his team fresh, especially in light of all their recent injuries. "I don't want to leave our fight in the gym and have nothing left in games," he said. STEPPING UP Boylen appreciated Kris Dunn taking accountability for his less-than-stellar play in a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers earlier in the week. Dunn had six points and five turnovers against the Lakers. "He took it on the chest that he's got to play better for us to be successful. I'm just proud of him," Boylen said. "What we're striving for is to play better basketball and to own the 'Bulls' across our chest." UP NEXT Bulls: Host Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). Nuggets: Finish a four-game homestand Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) against Cleveland......»»

Antetokounmpo leads streaking Bucks past Grizzlies 111-101

By Clay Bailey, Associated Press MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo had 27 points and 11 rebounds as the Milwaukee Bucks used a third-quarter outburst to capture their third straight win, 111-101 over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Eric Bledsoe added 16 points and D.J. Wilson scored 13 for the Bucks, who won for the 14th time in 17 games. Omri Casspi led the Grizzlies with 17 points. Marc Gasol, Mike Conley and JaMychal Green scored 14 points apiece for Memphis, which lost its ninth in the last 10. The Grizzlies took their only lead of the game at 59-58 early in the second half on a three-pointer by Gasol. The Bucks made sure any Memphis excitement was short-lived. Milwaukee ran off 19 straight points to extend its lead to 18. By that point, the Grizzlies returned to uninspired play as the Bucks outscored Memphis 41-28 in the quarter. Memphis committed eight turnovers in the third, leading to 20 points. The Bucks took an early lead thanks to anemic shooting by Memphis. The Grizzlies starters seemed lackadaisical and not up to the task of challenging one of the better teams in the NBA as Milwaukee stretched its lead to as many as 14 points. The Memphis reserves brought more energy and steadily chipped away at the Bucks advantage. Casspi and Green led the rally. But the Bucks used 15 points from Antetokounmpo to hold on for a 50-45 lead at the break. The third-quarter rally led to Milwaukee building the advantage to as many as 31 points in the fourth. TIP-INS Bucks: Milwaukee leads the series 23-22. . The Bucks lead the league in scoring differential at 10 points per game and have 23 double-digit victories this season. . Antetokounmpo recorded his 30th double-double of the season. . Memphis defeated the Bucks 116-113 on Nov. 14 (Nov. 15, PHL time). Milwaukee is now 5-0 facing teams that it lost to in its previous meeting. Grizzlies: Memphis played its only home game in a five-game stretch. .F/G Justin Holiday, obtained from the Chicago Bulls in a Jan. 4 (Jan. 5, PHL time) trade, started his first game for Memphis. . Memphis missed 10 of its first 11 shots in the game, part of the Grizzlies shooting 26 percent in the opening quarter. . The Bucks' 41 points in the third quarter was the most given up by Memphis in any period this season. UP NEXT Bucks: At Orlando to face the Magic on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time).

UAAP Season 81: Arado, Mendrez lead U-23 hopefuls

Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. has formally extended its invitation to all UAAP schools to allow their girls’ and women’s volleyball players to try out for the national pool. University of the East athletic director Rod Roque, also the UAAP representative to the LVPI, distributed the invitation letters to members of the UAAP Board during their meeting Tuesday.   “Sa akin pinadaan ni Mr. Ariel Paredes (LVPI SecGen) and tamang-tamang may UAAP Board meeting kami. So i-disseminate ko na sa kanila ‘yung info na open ang tryout for Under 23.” LVPI earlier this month announced a two-day tryout on January 24-25 at the Arellano University Gym in Taft Ave for the purpose of expanding the national pool that will see action in a number of international tournaments including the Asian Women’s U-23 Volleyball Championship in Hanoi, Vietnam on July 13 to 21. Leading the list of hopefuls are Lady Warriors Kat Arado and Me-Anne Mendrez, who both represented the country in the 2016 Asian Women’s U-19 Volleyball Championship in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand back. The PHI finished 10th in the 15-nation field.      “Dito sa akin number one na very, very qualified si Kat Arado,” said Roque, who will accompany his players in the tryout. Arado was also invited in the seniors national team tryout last year.   “Kasi siya lang ‘yung nag-decline last year kasi ‘yung studies niya tapos may Generika, may UE siya sabi niya ‘sir hindi ko na kaya’. So nag-back out muna siya sa national team but this year tapos na ‘yung Generika nila tapos last playing year niya sa UAAP sabi niya sa akin, ‘sir ready na ko sa national team,’” Roque said. “So dadalhin ko siya sa 25 tapos si Me-Anne Mendrez. Silang dalawa kasi silang dalawa ang pinaka-qualified.” LVPI hopes to see other young talents like Cocolife's Kalei Mau, DLSU-Zobel's Angel Canino, University of Sto. Tomas' Milena Alessandrini and Eya Laure, Faith Nisperos and Alyssa Solomon on National U, University of the Philippines' Tots Carlos, and Air Force's Dell Palomata in the two-day tryouts. The federation has also extended invitations to the Philippine Superliga, Premier Volleyball League and the NCAA.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
