PBA: Durham says Bolts will keep do-or-die mentality

ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal --- The knockout games finally stopped for Meralco but the winning has not. Prior to making the Governors' Cup semifinals for a third straight season, the Bolts survived a record six straight knockout games. Do-or-die situations naturally stopped for now as Meralco started its best-of-5 series against the Alaska Aces but the Bolts have kept that mentality of fighting for their season. It still works as Meralco took Game 1 Sunday at the Ynares Center here and are officially two games away from having another shot at its first PBA championship. "It is kinda nice to relax a little bit but we don't want to relax [too much]," reigning two-time Best Import Allen Durham said on the Bolts' much-needed break from knockout games. "It's been working for us, to keep the intensity up and keep playing the way we've been playing so we're gonna keep trying that [do-or-die] mentality that we've been having the past few games," he added. Durham and the rest of the Meralco team are definitely rolling right now. After a near-disastrous losing skid, the Bolts have piled up quality wins and are looking like the best team remaining this season. Whether or not their current winning streak actually leads to a title remains to be seen but the Bolts are ready to find out. "I think we're in a groove right now," Durham said. "Everybody's peaking at the right time. We're playing well right now so hopefully we just keep going and ride this winning streak out for as long as we can," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Weinstein lawyers try again to get sex assault case tossed

NEW YORK --- Harvey Weinstein's lawyers asked Monday for a chance to question in court the former lead detective in his sexual assault case and the head of New York City's special victims division, arguing the case has been "irreparably tainted" by police misconduct and should be thrown out. The former Hollywood producer's lawyers singled out Detective Nicholas DiGaudio --- whose alleged witness coaching led prosecutors to abandon part of the case last month --- as they renewed their push to have five remaining counts dismissed. The lawyers decried DiGaudio in court papers as "a serial obstructor" who was "singularly hell-bent on concealing the truth" and proposed an evidentiar...Keep on reading: Weinstein lawyers try again to get sex assault case tossed.....»»
