Steph Curry has been shredding it all season long for the Golden State Warriors and he is a premier candidate for the NBA MVP trophy for 2015.

He’s the unquestioned leader of the Western Conference-leading Golden State Warriors, but amid the grinding NBA season, he has not forgotten about the biggest sporting event for 2015: Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr.

With that, “Chef Curry” sent a little care package for one of his biggest fans–Mr. Eight-Division World Champion.

The Purefoods Star Hotshots and the Meralco Bolts eye to nail a series-clinching win against their respective opponents in Game Two of the best-of-three PBA Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals Sunday at SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

Purefoods and the Alaska Aces collide at 3 p.m. followed by the clash between Meralco and NLEX Road Warriors at 5:15 p.m. Both games will be broadcast live on TV5.

The Hotshots and the Bolts are both just a win away from marching on to the semifinals after scoring Game One victories last Friday. Purefoods destroyed Alaska by 34 points, 120-86, while Meralco thumped NLEX, 97-82.

Barangay Ginebra’s premier center Greg Slaughter isn’t one to take losing lightly, and he admitted he’s tiring of having a lack of playoff success.

“I’m just really tired of losing in the quarterfinals. Four conferences in a row now. I’m getting tired of it. We just worked hard all season and we were just cut off,” Slaughter told InterAksyon.com in an exclusive interview.

The seven-foot sophomore center played huge for Ginebra, finishing with 26 points and 16 rebounds in the crucial contest. But his effort just wasn’t enough to carry his eighth-seeded Kings to a knockout game against Rain or Shine.

SALT LAKE CITY -- A day after Kevin Durant was ruled out for the rest of the regular season because of issues with his surgically repaired right foot, the Oklahoma City Thunder said they are focusing on continuing their playoff push.

"It was a tough day," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. "Kevin, out for the season, all of our thoughts are with him. It's not about us, it's about him. Him getting better and recovering and coming back stronger and better next season."

Durant will undergo a bone graft early next week on his right foot, which has already had two operations on it to repair a Jones fracture discovered in October. He will be able to return to basketball activities in four to six months, leaving the Thunder with the reality they will play out this season without the reigning MVP.

Barangay Ginebra’s Japeth Aguilar had decided to undergo an operation to repair an injury – a dislocated pinky finger – that has plagued him for the past two seasons.

The athletic, 6-foot-9 forward disclosed the news to InterAksyon.com in an exclusive interview.

“Yun ang focus ko, to get healthy. Individually, improve,” said Aguilar said. “Baka magpa-opera ako, so yun na yung nasa isip ko ngayon.”

When Rain or Shine clinched the No. 1 seed after the elimination round, they were supposed to be rewarded with a twice-to-beat advantage and a relatively easier quarterfinal pairing.

But easy is not a word that can describe their series against No. 8 Barangay Ginebra, even if it did end in one game.

“Swerte lang. We got lucky,” Guiao told sportswriters after the game.

SALT LAKE CITY -- Returning to play against his former team on Saturday, Thunder center Enes Kanter claimed to have plenty more he could say about his tumultuous tenure with the Utah Jazz, but still didn't hold back all that much.

"I love it," Kanter said of his change of scenery. "It's a team I've never experienced before and I actually like playing basketball there. I'm just so comfortable and everything is in the right place. I'm just really happy to be there."

Kanter has been an offensive revelation for the Thunder, putting up a double-double in seven consecutive games and averaging 17.6 points and 10.8 rebounds in the 16 appearances he's had since being traded from Utah.

Less than two minutes remaining in the 48, they held on to an 87-87 tie with the bruising Rain or Shine team.

Ginebra import Michael Dunigan split his free-throws with 1:47 left in the fourth to tie the game that sent their thousands of supporters inside Mall of Asia Arena nearer to Nirvana.

SAN ANTONIO -- After an inadvertent knee injured Mavericks shooting guard Monta Ellis in a 94-76 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night, a frustrated Mark Cuban publicly complained about the lack of respect that Dallas' leading scorer receives from referees.

Cuban first raised the issue in a tweet after the game.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Saturday morning that Ellis is "very doubtful" for Sunday's road game against the Indiana Pacers due to the right calf injury suffered when he was defending Spurs sixth man Manu Ginobili.

MANILA, Philippines—Rain or Shine overcame a hostile Ginebra team—and a hostile Ginebra crowd—92-91, eliminating PBA’s most famous team in the Commissioner’s Cup playoffs on Saturday evening at Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Jeff Chan got into a gem of a defensive moment as he stole the ball from Ginebra import Michael Dunigan at the end of the shot clock and drove to his own basket for the game-winning layup with 4.9 seconds left in the game.

Painters head coach Yeng Guiao was “glad” that their one-game playoff with Ginebra was over and, he said, they all got lucky.
