TNT denies GlobalPort in dying seconds, survives near-collapse

January 26, 2017

 Roger Pogoy led TNT with 20 points. Photo fromt he PBA Media BureauMANILA — TNT KaTropa thwarted a blistering fourth-quarter run by GlobalPort to escape with a 102-98 victory and grab a share of second spot in the PBA Philippine Cup at the Cuneta Astrodome Wednesday night.

The KaTropa fended off Terrence Romeo’s 35-point performance and a near-collapse by stopping Stanley Pringle from converting the potential game-tying layup in the final seconds.

TNT booked a quarterfinal spot with the win, but coach Nash Racela wasn’t pleased to see his team squandering a 20-point lead twice in a game.

“We're up by 20 but we allowed them to catch up. Then we led by almost 20 again then give up, it's very obvious that we are inconsistent as a team,” said Racela during the post game press conference....

Globalport braces for tough grind

January 09, 2017

Globalport guard Terrence Romeo says they still have a good chance of earning a playoff for one of two outright semis berths if they can survive a hellish stretch where they face four tough teams to close out the round. (Rio Deluvio)Globalport believes it can still attain the top two spot in the PBA Philippine Cup playoffs after snapping a two-game losing skid with a victory over Meralco last Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The Batang Pier improved to 4-3 following their 97-89 win over Bolts, erasing the painful memory of squandering a 26-point fourth quarter lead against the Phoenix Fuel Masters last Dec. 28 at the Cuneta Astrodome.

“Sabi sa amin ni (Globalport) coach Franz (Pumaren), hawak pa rin namin ang top two,” star guard Terrence Romeo said. “Kung ibibigay namin yung talagang all-out namin, tapos laruin yung tamang basketball, may chance pa rin sa top two.”...

Haunted by their monumental collapse last week, the Batang Pier exorcised their demons and came away with a 97-89 victory over the Meralco Bolts on Friday.

Taking notes from its heartbreaking 101-99 loss to Phoenix last Dec. 28 where it squandered a 26-point lead in the fourth quarter, GlobalPort made sure there won’t be any meltdowns as it held off the Bolts and averted another collapse....

Stars in their 40s do their best to fight off Father Time

January 04, 2017

 In his prime with San Miguel, Danny Seigle was an unstoppable scorer. Photo courtesy of the PBA Media BureauYoung fans who have only heard the names Jayjay Helterbrand, Mick Pennisi, Danny Seigle and Asi Taulava in the past season or two were deprived of seeing four of the most stellar and consistently effective players the league has ever seen.

They have a total of 19 PBA championships, 14 Mythical Team selections and more than 2,300 games combined.

But these days, these members of "club 40" — players north of 40 years old — are picking up more fouls than making field goals (26-22). In some nights, they're collecting DNPs....

GlobalPort deputy on collapse: ‘We stopped playing defense’

December 30, 2016

Globalport assistant coach Cholo Villanueva. Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netChristmas may be over but GlobalPort experienced what it’s like getting a visit from the Grinch.

On Wednesday, the Batang Pier was having their way against Phoenix but nothing would have prepared them against the Fuel Masters’ furious fourth-quarter fightback.

Globalport assistant coach Cholo Villanueva said it was his team’s lackadaisical defensive effort in the final period that ultimately led to their 101-99 loss to Phoenix. ...
