first_imgPORTLAND, Oregon (AP): As CJ McCollum sees it, there’s no time like the present for the Trail Blazers to snap out of their losing run. McCollum scored 20 points and Portland snapped a six-game losing streak with a 102-89 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night. The win ended the Blazers’ longest skid of the season and was the second straight game they have shown intensity on defence – something that has eluded them at times this season. “The sense of urgency has risen. We understand where we’re at in the season. We understand where we turned the corner at last year, about the same time. So if we want to get better, the time is now,” McCollum said. Meyers Leonard added 16 off the bench for the Blazers, playing without leading scorer Damian Lillard for the second straight game because of a sprained left ankle. DeMarcus Cousins scored 28 points but the Kings had their four-game winning streak snapped. The Kings trailed by as many as 20 points in the second half. Matt Barnes’ corner 3-pointer with 2 minutes to go pulled Sacramento within 98-87, before Cousins hit on a floater to get closer. Mason Plumlee answered with a dunk for Portland and the Kings couldn’t catch up. Plumlee finished with 12 points and 14 rebounds.

Miguel Cotto. AP FILE PHOTOSACRAMENTO, California—Almost overlooked amid last week’s flurry of sports events was Miguel Cotto’s farewell fight with fellow ex-Olympian Sadam Ali at Madison Square Garden in New York.Although he lost the WBO junior middleweight title to a fringe contender in Ali, Cotto closed out his illustrious boxing career essentially on his own terms.ADVERTISEMENT At the center of his 46 professional fights were losses to Antonio Margarito, Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather Jr., and Canelo Alvarez, a revenge win over Margarito and bruising victories over Yuri Foreman, Ricardo Mayorga, Shane Mosley and Sergio Martinez.His fights always featured two-way action between the ropes. To Cotto, a slam-bang affair was just another day in the office.He separated himself from his peers by not cherry picking his opponents and faced all comers to produce solid television ratings.Best of all, he is a credit to his profession for choosing his final bout and the date of his departure from the scene.Cotto has a mind-set unlike those of the most recognizable names in his sport who are past their prime but hem and haw about retirement, are contemplating a comeback or are lining up at the chance to share the ring and the spotlight with UFC superstar Conor McGregor.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours “I don’t want to make excuses, Sadam won the fight,” he told HBO’s Max Kellerman.In case you are wondering if the loss might cause him to change his plans and keep his career going, Cotto shot down that notion right away.“I’m feeling good. Feeling good with the performance. It is my last fight. I am good, and I want to be happy in my home with my family,” Cotto said when pressed by Kellerman. “Thank you for all the fans.”Although he never made staggering amounts of money in his prime, Cotto said he “had the opportunity to provide the best for my family because of the sport.”In a career that spanned 15 years, Cotto won six world titles in four divisions and faced the elite fighters of his era.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

first_imgSteam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours An MRI revealed a torn left ACL, an injury that will sideline Porzingis for the rest of this season and perhaps a good deal of the next.“Obviously he was devastated that he has that injury and so are we,” coach Jeff Hornacek said. “It’s a tough thing to have happened. He’s had such a great year and we’re trying to grow with him.”Disappointment could be felt not only in New York but around the NBA. Porzingis is a popular player for his wide array of skills at 7-foot-3 that led Kevin Durant to nickname him a “unicorn,” but also for the personality he brought to New York when he arrived in 2015 as a teenager from Latvia.“Was hoping for the best news when I saw the play after the game,” LeBron James wrote on Twitter . “Best wishes and have a speedy healthy recovery.”Porzingis was set to play on James’ team next week when he made his debut as an All-Star, and he was also set to defend his title in the Skills Challenge. He hoped to return from Los Angeles to a playoff race after not coming close in his first two seasons.ADVERTISEMENT That’s all that’s left after Porzingis was lost to a torn ACL, ending his All-Star season and probably any hopes the Knicks had of making the playoffs.They say they’ll keep playing hard, but the first trade they made after Porzingis’ injury showed they aren’t loading up for a playoff push.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“Look, we want to compete every night,” general manager Scott Perry said Wednesday. “We want to continue to fight.”Porzingis had hoped they would fight all the way to the playoffs for the first time in his career. But those plans were derailed when Porzingis crashed to the court, punching the floor in pain after a dunk in the second quarter of a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night. View comments “He is a competitor, man. That’s one thing he wants to do, get the journey started right away,” teammate Courtney Lee said. “So I think he is mentally strong and he is mentally ready to switch his focus from playing and helping us make the playoffs to now rehabbing and getting back 100 percent and helping us when he gets back.”Well-wishers around the league think he will.“Setback for a major comeback!” the National Basketball Players Association tweeted, with a photo of Porzingis.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Nonito Donaire vs Naoya Inoue is BWAA 2019 Fight of the Year OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player awardcenter_img Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis is helped off the court after being injured during the first half of the team’s NBA basketball game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018, at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson New York was already facing a tough climb from 11th place in the Eastern Conference, and that would have been difficult even with Porzingis carrying them.The Knicks probably would have needed to find some help by Thursday’s trade deadline, and perhaps they would have tried given Porzingis’ stated desire for a playoff push. But now they are better off playing for the lottery than the playoffs, and any moves they make would likely be with that in mind.That appeared to be the case Wednesday when they sent Willy Hernangomez, voted to the All-Rookie first team last season, to Charlotte. The Knicks got back a pair of second-round picks along with forward Johnny O’Bryant, who Perry said would be waived.“We were without second-round picks,” Perry said, “and we value first-round picks and second-round picks, but we were without picks in 2020 and 2021. So this deal allowed us to do that.”For now, the Knicks will likely give more time to rookie guard Frank Ntilikina, and Perry and Hornacek said players from the team’s G League affiliate could get opportunities.Porzingis had at least given New York reason to entertain playoff hopes in a season that started days after Carmelo Anthony was traded to Oklahoma City. Even the Knicks didn’t know if Porzingis was ready to flourish in the No. 1 role at 22.But he wanted the challenge and has been up for it, averaging 22.7 points and a league-leading 2.4 blocked shots per game.The only thing he couldn’t really do is put to rest injury concerns that often follow players at his age and size. He had missed at least 10 games in each of his first two seasons and will finish with only 48 games played in this one.He had come back stronger this season in hopes of becoming more durable and better handling the pounding in the post.Now he will have to work even harder to come back from a serious injury.last_img read more
