Clippers snap home skid against Warriors with 121-116 OT win

By Beth Harris, Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lou Williams scored 10 of his 25 points in overtime after the Clippers blew a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter, and Los Angeles hung on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) to beat the Golden State Warriors at home for the first time in nearly four years, 121-116. Williams rallied after missing shots in the closing minutes of regulation, when the Warriors ran off 11 straight points to force overtime tied at 106-all. Montrezl Harrell added 23 points off the bench and rookie Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 18. The Clippers snapped a seven-game skid against the Warriors at Staples Center, where they last won on Dec. 25, 2014. Kevin Durant had 33 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for the Warriors before fouling out with 3:46 left in the extra session. Klay Thompson added 31 points, but was just 5-of-16 on three-pointers on a night without injured fellow Splash Brother Stephen Curry. Golden State lost for just the third time in 14 games. The starless Clippers improved to 6-1 at home. Thompson's three-pointer tied it 116-all in overtime, interrupting Williams' run of 10 straight points for the Clippers. Down 106-95, the Warriors closed regulation on an 11-0 run, with Thompson scoring their last eight points. His second three-pointer in the spurt tied it at 106. The Clippers crashed the boards — every player grabbed at least one — and they dominated in the paint, 62-36. Williams' three-pointer gave Los Angeles its largest lead of 101-87. They didn't go up by double digits until Harrell's basket to open the fourth. The Clippers shot 60 percent and led 64-61 at halftime. They controlled the boards, 23-13, and owned a 30-18 edge in the paint. Durant scored 21 points and had three fouls in the half for the Warriors. TIP-INS Warriors: They fell to 39-60 in regular-season games without Curry (left groin strain), who missed his second straight game. ... F Draymond Green returned to the lineup after sitting out two games with a right foot-toe sprain. ... G Shaun Livingston was back after being out seven games with right foot soreness. ... They haven't left California during a seven-game stretch that concludes Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time). Clippers: Hall of Famer Bill Russell sat courtside with owner Steve Ballmer. UP NEXT Warriors: Host Atlanta on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) in the second game of a back-to-back, their third of the season. Clippers: Host San Antonio on Thursday (Friday, PHL time), their second straight division-leading opponent......»»

PVL: Perlas Spikers eye bounce back win, semis seat

After a shocking loss the last time out, BanKo marches back into action hoping to get back on the winning track and secure a spot in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference Final Four. The Perlas Spikers take on a desperate Pocari Sweat-Air Force side on Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Opening serve is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream. BanKo saw its three-game winning streak snapped by PetroGazz in a disappointing 11-25, 23-25, 18-25 defeat just a day after the Perlas Spikers scored a dominating sweep of semis-bound Ateneo-Motolite. BanKo holds an 8-3 win-loss record in third place behind the Lady Eagles (10-3) and Creamline (8-2) and are already secured of at least a playoff for a semis spot. But the Perlas Spikers remain wary of the dangerous Lady Warriors, who nipped them in five sets in their first meeting in Baliwag, Bulacan. Pocari Sweat is in desperate need of wins in their remaining three games to keep its semis hopes alive. The Lady Warriors are outside of the top four, holding a 5-6 mark, a game and a half away from fourth running PetroGazz. Pocari Sweat despite the gallant effort put up by Myla Pablo, Jeanette Panaga, Del Palomata and Iari Yongco fell short in their last outing at the hands of the Alyssa Valdez-led Cool Smashers, 25-23, 21-25, 20-25, 25-22, 9-15, in Legazpi City last Saturday.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Dismayed Amnesty International strips Aung San Suu Kyi of highest honor

NEW YORK--- Amnesty International has withdrawn its highest honor from Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi in light of what it said was the Nobel Peace Prize laureate's "shameful betrayal of the values she once stood for." The human rights organization announced Monday that its secretary general, Kumi Naidoo, informed Suu Kyi that it was revoking her 2009 Ambassador of Conscience Award. Amnesty has criticized the failure of Suu Kyi and her government to speak out about military atrocities against the Rohingya Muslim population. Naidoo said Amnesty expected Suu Kyi to use her "moral authority to speak out against injustice wherever" she saw it, especially in Myanmar.

Sotto welcomes physicality, ready to fight for slot

Kai Sotto may be the youngest among the 20-man Team Pilipinas pool but the Ateneo de Manila University high school center knows that his ‘kuyas’ won’t go easy on him. The towering 16-year old cager boldly said that he welcomes the challenge of going up against experienced pros. Even if it means absorbing the physical nature of their game. “Sana ibigay nila ang lahat nila,” said the lanky 7-foot-1 Sotto. “Dahil siyempre kaya naman ako nandito para maramdaman ‘yung mga bagay na yun. Para ma-experience din kung paano talaga maglaro ‘yung players sa ganitong klaseng level.”      Sotto was one of the 12 players who attended the first practice session of Team Pilipinas, which is preparing for the two home games against Kazakhstan and Iran in the fifth window of the 2019 World Cup Asia Qualifiers. “Sobrang happy and sobrang excited ko na mag-practice rito and makilala yung mga teammates ko rito and looking forward na maraming matutunan sa kanila,” said Sotto, who already donned the national colors under the Batang Gilas banner. Sotto was joined another young player in University of the Philippines Ricci Rivero. Also in attendance were Talk ‘N Text’s Jayson Castro and Troy Rosario, San Miguel Beer’s June Mar Fajardo, Alex Cabagnot, Marcio Lassiter and Arwind Santos, Rain or Shine’s Beau Belga and Gabe Norwood, Phoenix’s Matthew Wright and Blackwater’s Poy Erram. Included in the pool are Barangay Ginebra’s Greg Slaughter, Japeth Aguilar, LA Tenorio and Scottie Thompson and Magnolia’s Ian Sangalang and Paul Lee. The six though skipped practice with their teams clashing in the PBA Governors’ Cup semifinals Game 2.    SMB’s Christian Standhardinger and NorthPort’s Stanley Pringle have yet to arrive for practice as of posting time. Head coach Yeng Guiao said that Sotto and Rivero have the same equal chance as the pros to secure a spot in the final 12-man lineup. “Meron, meron (chance). Actually, the reason they’re here is they’re one of the guys with the opportunity to fight for a slot in the 12-man lineup,” said Guiao. “So kahit na sabihin natin na ang basic purpose natin is for their development, who knows?” “Hindi natin alam baka magpakita sila,” he added. “So I’m not discounting that possibility. It might be a little bit remote but it’s still a possibility.” For Sotto, getting a call up for the pool is already an honor. Whatever the decision of Guiao come the final cut, the experience will definitely improve Sotto’s game for the future.   “Dream ko na makasama sa talagang team and itong pagsama sa pool. Pero kahit ano man ang kalabasan positive lang ako dahil kahit papaano 16 pa lang naman ako,” said Sotto. “Kahit anong mangyari dito alam ko naman na magandang bagay yun para sa akin. Mag-pray lang ako na kahit anong mangyari magiging successful itong Team Pilipinas.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Finals: Tyang Aby Maraño finally witnesses Robert Bolick win a championship live

While the sea of red was gloriously singing the Bedan Hymn after yet another championship, Robert Bolick rushed up to the stands of the Mall of Asia Arena to hug his family and give his longtime girlfriend, volleyball superstar Aby Maraño, a kiss. .@BabesBolick immediately goes to his family and @Abymarano to celebrate another title for San Beda. #NCAASeason94 pic.twitter.com/sNN6K9Ai91 — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) November 12, 2018 As Bolick went back to the court for the championship festivities, Maraño stayed in her spot. Sporting a number eight San Beda jersey with a big smile on her face, the former De La Salle Lady Spiker watched as her beau relished the feeling of being a champion in his graduating year -- something that she didn't have the privilege to experience back in the UAAP. "Sobrang special 'to for him and for us na makuha niya yung last playing year niya ng mabuti kasi alam naman niyang pinagdaanan ko nung last year ko na di ako nag champion. Nakita niya kung gaano ako sobrang na hurt, almost three years akong di naka get over noon," said the former Lady Spikers team captain. "Siya, alam niya yung pinagdaanan ko, sabi ko, ayaw kong maranasan mo yung naranasan ko kaya bigay mo yung sarili mo sa bawat laro and nakita ko naman, yung talagang puso niya para ipanalo yung game," she added. To make things sweeter, Maraño witnessed her boyfriend's championship live and in person. In the past years, the F2 Logistics middle blocker has always missed Bolick's games due to her own volleyball commitments.  But this year, the stars aligned for these college sweethearts and they got to celebrate this three-peat championship together in the same venue. "Papasalamat kami kay Lord na last playing year niya, pang three-peat, nakanood ako kasi wala akong game, bukas pa," said Maraño. "Timing talaga kasi every year na lang nagdadamdam siya na hindi ako nakakanood ng Game 2. Eh importante para sa kanya yun kaya every time mabbring up sa mga tampuhan namin, yun yung wala akong mapanlaban kasi wala talaga ako magagawa, may game ako," she added. Being an athlete herself, Maraño gave her assessment on her boyfriend's performance "Alam natin sa points di naging effective yung puntos niya pero nakita natin yung patience niya," she said referring to Bolick's 1/11 shooting clip. "Alam niya kung saan siya maka contribute sa team, so nakita ko yung maturity niya, nakita ko siya kanina na aware siya sa role niya sa team, ang dami nyang assists, ginawa niya yung best niya para makahanap ng open spot para sa mga teammates," Maraño added as she boasted on the King Lion's 12 assists which helped propel San Beda to a 71-56 win. After this championship, Bolick will be leaving the college scene and will be entering the PBA. With this, he now joins Maraño in the professional ranks. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @the9cruz.....»»

Pocket money apps aim to help kids in cashless world

LONDON --- For kids growing up in today's cashless society, the piggy bank is going virtual. Father of two Roland Hall turned to a British startup's digital pocket money app because his kids were still too young to get bank cards from traditional banks. With prepaid debit cards linked to the app, Hall's kids, aged 8 and 10, can spend their allowance and chore money by shopping online or by tapping at contactless payment terminals in stores. Sound like a recipe for splurging? Not so, he said. "When kids have cash they want to spend it quickly. They want to go to the shops and spend it on rubbish," said Hall, an IT project manager. But an app lets them check their balances ...Keep on reading: Pocket money apps aim to help kids in cashless world.....»»
