UAAP: Unbeaten Bullpups bury Jr. Warriors in 72-point hole

STANDINGS NU 5-0 Ateneo 4-1 Adamson 3-2 DLSZ 3-2 FEU-Diliman 3-2 UST 2-3 UE 0-5 UPIS 0-5 Nazareth School of National University is far from full strength and yet, it remains the standard of the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Gerry Abadiano and Terrence Fortea showed the way, but all of the Bullpups played their parts to perfection as they ran hapless University of the East out of the Blue Eagle Gym in Quezon City to the tune of a 72-point obliteration, 115-43, on Saturday. Abadiano and Fortea scored 17 and 16 points, respectively, to lead four other teammates in double-digits as they stayed spotless after five games. “Mas maganda yung movement ng bola namin kanina compared sa ibang games tapos yung defense naman, maganda rin from start to finish,” head coach Goldwin Monteverde said post-game. It was those two who got going right from tip-off and, alongside Reyland Torres and Kevin Quiambao, combined for 28 points in the first half. With just the four of them, NU already outscored all of the Junior Warriors at that point, 28-18. The Bullpups would not take their foot off the pedal the rest of the way even as Abadiano and Fortea rested on the bench for much of the second half. In the end, Torres had 13 points, six rebounds, three assists, and two steals while Quiambao had 10 markers, five boards, and two dimes. Little-known Menard Songcuya and Renzo Abiera also contributed 10 points apiece to help make up for the absence of Batang Gilas big man Carl Tamayo. “Yung process of becoming a team, yung biggest challenge pa rin namin is how to play together,” coach Goldwin said. Shane Dichoso paced still winless UE with nine points. In the day’s other game, Adamson High School topped University of Sto. Tomas in overtime, 77-74. Andrey Doria dropped half of his 14 points in the extra period to go along with a total of seven rebounds while brother Adam also added 18 markers, five boards, and three steals as the Baby Falcons forged a three-way tie for third-place at 3-2. Big man Lorenz Capulong also came up big with a 17-point, 14-rebound to make sure they overcame an off-game by main man Joem Sabandal who only had eight points before leaving the game due to an apparent left leg injury. For the Tiger Cubs, Mark Nonoy stuffed the stat sheet anew with 20 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists. He also had 10 turnovers, however, and as a team, they saw their 34 turnovers get converted into 21 points to fall to 2-3 in the standings.

Vince Carter enjoying his decision to go to Atlanta

By Tim Reynolds, Associated Press Vince Carter could have gone anywhere. To a contender, to chase a ring. To retirement, because he has nothing left to prove. To television, which seems like it will be his next vocation whenever his playing days end. Instead, he chose Atlanta — a young team, a rebuilding team, a team that probably has minimal chance of making the playoffs. And he’s happy. “I’m with a great bunch of guys,” Carter said. “I enjoy helping young guys who want to learn, who are willing to be coached and let you coach them and ask questions. It’s a small thing, but it’s a major thing — because if you’re asking questions, that means you’re trying to learn and grow. And these guys are all great.” He’s the NBA’s oldest active player, someone who turns 42 next month. When he was drafted in June 1998, neither Trae Young nor Kevin Huerter had been born yet. And they’re the starting backcourt for the Hawks this season, Carter’s 21st in the league, with Atlanta being the eighth team he’s played with. Carter talked with Dwyane Wade during the offseason about their options; Wade was considering retirement, and Carter was deciding where to play next. Wade said Carter doesn’t need a ring to complete any sort of legacy, and applauded the decision to go to Atlanta. “It’s very cool,” Wade said. “I think everybody on the outside has what they think someone should do. I was like, ‘Man, it’d be cool if he went back to Toronto.’ I had my story for him. But he decided to continue to do things the way that he’s done it, and I think it’s him understanding the importance of what he has to offer to the game and young players, and an organization that wanted him to come in and give that.” There are no regrets. Barring a change of address or another season — which is possible — Carter’s career will end with him getting to the conference finals only once, and never appearing in the NBA Finals. The closest he got was with Orlando in 2010, when the Magic lost the Eastern Conference finals to Boston in six games. “It’s easy to go sit on the bench and watch your team win and not really contribute,” Carter said. “Yeah, with my voice, I could contribute. But I want to do both.” So Carter is hanging with the kids. “It’s good for me,” Carter said. “Keeps me young.” RAPTORS RISING Toronto is off to the best start in the NBA at 20-4, four games clear of Milwaukee in the Eastern Conference already (and four games in the loss column ahead of Philadelphia as well). The scary thing is, it could have been better. It’s been forgotten, but the Raptors’ season also includes a three-game losing streak — all in a five-day span last month. They lost by 16 against New Orleans to fall to 12-2, then wasted a 19-point lead and lost to Detroit, then watched Kawhi Leonard miss late in regulation in what became an overtime loss to Boston. They’re 8-0 since, and first-year coach Nick Nurse has his team rolling. “Nick has done a really good job with this team and the way they play,” New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry said. THE WEEK AHEAD A game per day to check out this week: Oklahoma City at Detroit, Monday (Tuesday, PHL time): Former teammates Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson seem to like going head-to-head. San Antonio at Utah, Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time): The Spurs struggled with the Jazz last season, and this opens a tough road back-to-back. Philadelphia at Toronto, Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time): The Raptors have opened up a sizable lead in the East, and face a good test here. New York at Boston, Thursday (Friday, PHL time): After a sluggish start, the Celtics are starting to look like the team many envisioned. Golden State at Milwaukee, Friday (Saturday, PHL time): Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo on the same floor is must-watch. Miami at L.A. Clippers, Saturday (Sunday, PHL time): Wade is eager for this — his wife and their newborn daughter are currently staying in Los Angeles. Milwaukee at Toronto, Sunday (next Monday, PHL time): A matchup of two of the East’s best teams, and it’s never too early to think about positioning. HISTORIC WARRIORS Not even two months into the season, and the Golden State Warriors have already done something that no team in more than 50 years has accomplished. The Warriors are the second team in NBA history, joining the 1961-62 Los Angeles Lakers, to have three different players with a 50-point game in the same regular season. Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have reached 50 already this season. The 1961-62 Lakers’ trio to do so: Jerry West, Elgin Baylor and Rudy LaRusso. Could Golden State get a fourth into the 50-point column? Who knows, but remember, DeMarcus Cousins — who hasn’t played yet this season — has a pair of 50-point games in on his career resume......»»

Kerr says Green out for remainder of Warriors road trip

NBA.com staff report The Golden State Warriors won't have a home game until a week from now. By then, perhaps, coach Steve Kerr will have Draymond Green back in his lineup.
