I don’t know,” Crabbe said of his quiet second half.Trailing by one at the end of the opening quarter, the Pacers got a jolt from Oladipo, the team’s leading scorer at 24.5 points per game.After Crabbe’s 3-pointer cut the lead to 51-45 with 2:25 left in the first half, Oladipo reeled off eight straight points for a 59-48 advantage at the end of the second period.When Brooklyn drew within five points in the beginning of the fourth quarter, Indiana’s summer acquisition capped a 10-3 run with five consecutive points, landing an alley-oop dunk that drew the attention of the Barclays Center crowd.Indiana snapped a two-game losing streak, including a 100-95 loss in George’s return on Wednesday.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew “I think we did a good job of getting stops, finishing possessions with rebounds and then doing our plays. We’ve got to do it in that order,” Oladipo said. “The past couple of games we’ve kind of been doing one step before the other. I think we did a great job of settling down, playing our pace, and getting stops down the stretch.”Quincy Acy, Caris LeVert and Joe Harris each had 14 points in Brooklyn’s third straight loss.Nets coach Kenny Atkinson thought his team was outworked as it was in those previous two games.“I just felt like the whole game … whatever that ‘it’ is in terms of energy and physicality, it hasn’t been there,” Atkinson said.The second meeting of the season between these teams lacked the offensive spark of their first matchup, which Indiana won 140-131.The Pacers led by 14 with 7:08 remaining in the fourth quarter before Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and LeVert combined for a 6-0 run in little over a minute to close the gap to 94-86.Indiana then bounced back with eight straight points, including a basket by Joseph that led to a technical foul on Atkinson.FIRST IMPRESSIONSBrooklyn native Lance Stephenson, who broke into the league along with George in 2010, has enjoyed seeing the growth Oladipo has shown in 29 games.“Vic is playing amazing. He’s living up to the high expectations,” said the Lincoln High School product, who was chosen by the Pacers in the second round of the draft.“He’s here early for practice. He’s being a leader. He’s showing it on and off the court.”TIP-INSPacers: Have won their last five games against Brooklyn. … Indiana has won 13 of its last 17 regular-season games against the Nets dating to 2013.Nets: Brooklyn waived guard Yakuba Outtara. He was signed to a two-way contract on July 21. … According to various reports, the Nets are expected to sign guard Milton Doyle to their vacant two-way contract spot on their roster.

All there is is a legend, closer to the end of his career than to the start.Manny Pacquiao prepares for a fight that will dictate how the sun will continue to rise for the remainder of his career.ADVERTISEMENT Arum, now 84 and the top honcho of Top Rank, will be conspicuously absent as Pacquiao decided to go at it alone, his MP Promotions making its first major international foray.MP will instead be promoting the fight with Golden Boy Promotions, which handles Matthysse. Top Rank has reportedly been reduced to distributing the fight in the United States.Also, Pacquiao’s best friend and coach Buboy Fernandez will now be calling the shots from his corner in place of Roach, who has been head trainer since 2001. This marks the end of the duo that shook the boxing world—pound for pound, one division at a time—since pairing up to stun Lehlo Ledwaba and barge into mainstream boxing consciousness.Pacquiao will also be bringing a fight to Malaysia for the first time, and the majestic Petronas towers could be the backdrop to what could very well be Pacquiao’s final act of his career.Against an Argentine brawler who is a high-risk, high-reward proposition for the Filipino icon, Pacquiao will have to draw from what worked for him before: Talent, skill, hard work and the burning desire to prove his doubters wrong.ADVERTISEMENT “This fight will determine my future,” the Philippine senator has told media people during his preparation for the bout against Argentine Lucas Matthysse on July 15 in Kuala Lumpur.But while the result will largely factor into Pacquiao’s future schedule, the atmosphere surrounding his preparation smacks of nostalgia. A bulk of his preparation was spent in General Santos City, halfway around the world from the Wild Card Gym where he and renowned trainer used to plot the downfall of foes.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’It has all the throwback feels, as if Pacquiao has returned to where he started.His showdown against the 35-year-old Matthysse marks the first time in many years that neither Arum nor Roach are key figures of his camp.

He crushed the Golden Boy in 2008. Or how he supposedly  wouldn’t be able to bring his punching power up to the lightweight ranks? He sent Ricky Hatton to dreamland in 2009. Or even how he was “too small” to engage Antonio Margarito in a slugfest? He rearranged the Mexican’s facial features in 2010.Pacquiao’s career reached its peak with a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., but since then, he has struggled to find a big-name fighter for that one last big fight card.So he chose a dangerous one, instead—a slugger in Matthysse, who is also out to earn a piece of the spotlight Pacquiao has basked in for so long.At 39, Pacquiao hopes to reboot his career. One last shot at glory. One more chance at a marquee fight. One more opportunity to empty the streets. And it starts at a place where everything began for one of boxing’s biggest stars of all time.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins LATEST STORIES Putin’s, Xi’s ruler-for-life moves pose challenges to West 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 award Trump assembles a made-for-TV impeachment defense team Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding MOST READ Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Report: Disney dropping the ‘Fox’ from movie studio nameslast_img read more
