PVL: Cool Smashers grab eighth straight win

Repeat-seeking Creamline shook off a cold start as the Cool Smashers turned back PacificTown Army, 16-25, 25-16, 25-22, 25-16, on Wednesday to keep their winning streak alive in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Behind Kuttika Kaewpin of Thailand, Alyssa Valdez and Venezuelan Ale Blanco, Creamline stretched its winning romp further with its eight straight victory in nine outings to join PetroGazz at the top spot with 8-1 win-loss record. Kaewpin fired 16 attacks and had three kill blocks for 19 points and added 16 digs for teh Cool Smashers, who will close their elims campaign on Saturday against also-ran BaliPure. Blanco added 16 points off 10 attacks, four kill blocks and two aces while Valdez got 11 markers for Creamline, which had 47 attack points behind setter Jia Morado's 287 excellent sets.  “For our team it was really a bad first set, for Army it was a perfect set for them from the service line, from their attacks to their floor defense and their blocking talaga,” said Valdez. “Our errors were too many to count, lampas ata sa daliri during the first set. So going to the second set, coach Tai (Bundit) was asking us to compose ourselves and stay focus.” The Cool Smashers regrouped after a sluggish opening frame outing that saw Creamline fall into a 14-24 hole following an ace by Lady Troopers setter Alina Bicar. Creamline got its rhythm going in the second set but had to weather PacificTown Army’s late third set uprising. The Cool Smashers saw its 23-20 lead in the third frame cut to just one with Ukrainian import Lena Lymareva-Flink scoring off an attack and an ace. Lymareva-Flink committed an attack error before Kaewpin scored on a kill block to wrap the frame. It was all Creamline in the fourth as the Cool Smashers sent the Lady Troopers to their second straight defeat for a 4-5 slate. Lymareva-Flink posted 22 points built on 19 spikes and three aces while Jovelyn Gonzaga and American Jenelle Jordan finished with 10 and six markers, respectively, for PacificTown Army.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Rockets goal for next season is to get healthy and better, says James Harden

James Harden is coming off yet another MVP-caliber season, leading the Houston Rockets to another post-season berth, after what was a rocky start to the season.  Facing a litany of injuries to key players like Chris Paul and Clint Capela, Harden went on a historic run that saw him score 30-plus points in 32 straight games to pull the Rockets back into the playoff picture from an 11-13 record.  "Just the will, finding the will to win games," Harden said of his stellar streak. The 2018 NBA Most Valuable Player is currently in the Philippines for his two-day adidas Free To Harden Manila 2019 tour, and was able to answer some questions from the media, Wednesday.  "Throughout that 32-games, it was a stretch of scoring, throughout the other course of the games, it was maybe assists, it was maybe defense, a variety of things." "I think every game is it’s own challenge and you have to find ways to impact the games and try to win the games, and so, throughout the course of the season, you might have injuries, you might have guys out of the lineups, you can’t let that sidetrack you, you have to focus on winning that game, and that was kind of my mindset," he continued.  While the Rockets did make it back into the postseason, finishing with another 50-win season and the fourth seed in the tough Western Conference, they again saw their title dreams come to a crashing halt at the hands of the Golden State Warriors, who just a season prior, eliminated them in Game 7 the Western Conference Finals.  With the Warriors' spot at the top of the Western Conference now in question due to the looming free agency as well as injuries to key guys in Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, Harden says that the Rockets just need to get better to put themselves in a position to contend for the title again.  "Just get a little bit better, that’s all we can do, from an individual [standpoint], myself, Chris, Clint, PJ, Eric, all guys get a little bit better, and then for the front office to bring in more skilled, more talented guys that have championship nature and want to win into the locker room. [We need] to continue to put ourselves in that position," he explained. "I think two years ago, we were so successful, we were one game away from the Finals because we had vets, we had guys that’s been through it throughout the course of the league for a long time, they had longevity in the NBA, and then last year we just went through so much adversity as far as injuries and trades, and we fought through it and we still got to a top-4 seed in the west. [We just need to] keep healthy, keep getting better, and just try to put ourselves in a position to be successful," Harden added.   .....»»
