Clark eyed to host PBA ‘Bubble’

As the resumption of the 45th season of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Philippine Cup 2020 looms, exploratory talks have been made for prospective venues to host the "PBA Bubble" – including this Freeport.

“Three things. First, we have the rooms – the accommodation by hotels in Clark that can entail 12 teams. So that’s about 400 to 500 people,” said NLEX Road Warriors coach Joseller "Yeng" Guiao.

Clark is a premier business hub and a preferred tourist destination that is home to top-grade hotels which can potentially accommodate all 12 teams of the PBA.

Anunoby's buzzer-beater
gives Raptors needed win

OG Anunoby drained a buzzer-beating three-pointer as the Toronto Raptors resuscitated their NBA title defense yesterday with a 104-103 victory over the Boston Celtics.

Kyle Lowry, tasked with inbounding the ball with half a second on the clock and the Raptors down 103-101, lofted a perfect arcing pass over Boston's towering Tacko Fall to Anunoby on the opposite sideline.

Anunoby set his feet and fired, and the Raptors narrowed the deficit in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semi-final series to 2-1.
