Lassiter in right place at right time to win it for San Miguel

He also collected eight rebounds, four assists, and three steals.Lassiter noted that the grind out nature Game 2 had is a perfect microcosm on how tough this duel is for the Beermen as they continue their quest for a four-peat.“Every game is gonna be hard and we came out working extremely hard,” he said. “We give credit to Ginebra for they played extremely well in the first half. A lot of guys stepped up for them and it took us a while to figure out what they’re doing.”“But in the second half, I think our defense actually picked up a lot. We kinda dictated the tempo a little bit. From there, we were able to make some shots. Our pressure led to some turnovers, their turnovers led to some easy offense for us and it was good that we kept it close throughout the whole game.”Lassiter has been a lethal weapon for San Miguel so far in this series, averaging 21.0 points on 45 percent shooting from three, alongside 6.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists.“I just want to read the defense of Ginebra. I always want to play well and I want to continue to play team ball, just play our brand of San Miguel ball,” he said. “We know we have a great match over at June Mar in the post so we want to continue attacking, and just play and keep being aggressive.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View comments Lassiter went left and drew the attention of Ginebra guard Scottie Thompson before quickly flicking the ball to June Mar Fajardo, who was wide open near the basket..@TheSMBeermen’s Marcio Lassiter talks about that game-winning play in OT. #PBA2018 pic.twitter.com/EB1tm5l8HFFEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk— Randolph B.

If ever they did any switch, he might have gotten a block or something. I just wanna be there just to tip it in, and that’s what happened,” he said.Here’s that game-winning play! #PBA2018 pic.twitter.com/UVX34O0BVd— Randolph B.

Clippers fall on road again

first_img• Photo Gallery: 02/07: Clippers vs. Cavaliers CLEVELAND – LeBron James did not lead the Cleveland Cavaliers in scoring, rebounds, assists, dunks or anything vital. In the aftermath of a stinging loss to Detroit on Sunday, both James and Hughes said the Cavaliers should be running more, their argument being the team is better suited for an up-tempo offensive game than the slowdown style preferred by Brown, who preaches defense first. The Cavs pushed the action when they could, attacking the rim when the opportunity was there. “It’s no secret that I like to play that way,” Hughes said. “I like to get up and run.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! And this time, it didn’t matter. Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored 16 points with a season-high 16 rebounds, Larry Hughes had 15 points and the Cavs hardly needed James in an easy 94-77 victory over the Clippers on Wednesday night. center_img James scored 11 points – three above his season low and 15 below his average – and spent the first half of the fourth quarter watching as the scuffling Cavaliers, who came in just 4-8 since Jan. 16, won their fifth consecutive at home against the Clippers. “Guys took advantage of what we had,” James said. “I didn’t struggle at all. I didn’t force anything. I took what was there. Defensively, we took care of business.” Sasha Pavlovic had 16 points and Drew Gooden 13 for Cleveland, which held the Clippers to 35 percent shooting and without a field goal for nearly a nine-minute stretch bridging the third and fourth quarters. “We’re trying to figure out ways to score and get stops when LeBron doesn’t have one of his normal nights,” Cavs coach Mike Brown said. “It’s kind of been by committee.” Elton Brand led the Clippers with 21 points and Shaun Livingston had 19. The Clippers have dropped three consecutive. last_img read more
