first_imgQuarters: 21-17, 44-36, 71-59, 94-86. Trump signs bills in support of Hong Kong protesters Coach Caloy Garcia, though, noted that there’s still a lot to be desired in the Elastopainters’ performance after they let a 7-point advantage, 76-59, dwindle down to five, 87-82, courtesy of a Markeith Cummings jumper with 1:57 to play.“We played sloppy in the second half, turned the ball over a lot, and it’s just that our import took too much outside shots,” said Garcia.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool stars“[Bullock] only started attacking the basket in the last six minutes of the game and that was the only time we started getting to the line. I know our import can shoot from the outside, but in our game today, maybe he became tight. But once he gets used to it, he’ll be ok,” said Garcia.Chris Tiu got going with 3-of-5 from beyond the arc to wound up with 13 markers, eight assists, and five boards, while Beau Belga had 12 points and three rebounds before getting ejected at the 6:50 mark of the third for incurring a technical foul and a flagrant foul penalty one.
