Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines dominated all 12 rounds in the World Boxing Organisation’s welterweight bout against Brandon Rios of the U.S. before a sell-out crowd of 13,101 at CotaiArena. WBO Judges called the fight at 120-108, 119-109 and 118-110 for Manny Pacquiao. Yahoo Sports put the victor at 120-108 for Pacquiao. No matter who you ask, all 12 rounds went to the Filipino superstar. Brandon Rios said “I just got beat by one of the best fighters in the world. He came with a game plan. He executed it and won the fight. He’s very fast and has a lot of different angles. He’s difficult to box against.” Rios’ trainer, Robert Garcia, said “Pacquiao still has it. He has a lot of quickness and speed. He’ll be around a long time with a lot more fights.” The win breaks a two-game losing streak. The last time Manny Pacquiao took to the ring in Las Vegas last year, he was knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez. Manny also lost a disputed decision to Timothy Bradley. Manny Pacquiao said “This isn’t about my comeback. My victory is a symbol of my people’s comeback from a disaster, a national tragedy.” Filipinos at
Manny Pacquiao vs Brandon Rios Live Stream: Watch Online Free 7 ET Saturday Night Boxing Manny Pacquiao looks to come back, after losing two straight matches including a KO care of Juan Marquez in his last fight, in a much anticipated brawl against Brandon Rios in Macau this Saturday night. At Friday night, both boxers did a weigh in where the Filipino boxer weighed at 145 pounds and Rios 146.5 pounds. “My goal was 145 and I feel strong, so there is nothing to worry about,” Pacquiao said. “I have been doing this since I was 23 years old, I’m hungry,” he added. Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach said that his fighter exceeded his expectations and said that Manny is on the right track to be 149 for probably a future bout. Brandon Rios on the other hand proved Roach wrong with his weight, which also motivated him to be more inspired for the fight following an altercation on Manny and Brandon’s camp during training earlier this week. “This message goes out to Freddie Roach who said I’m a bum, I’m a fat loser and I can never make weight – guess what, I made weight, I feel great,” Rios said
Sacramento Kings vs LA Clippers Live Stream: Watch Online Free 3:30 ET Saturday Night The Sacramento Kings will try to blow off a double-double streak off from Chris Paul and Blake Griffin as they visit the LA Clippers for a November 1 rematch. DeMarcus Cousins who had 24 points and 10 rebounds in their second game of the season against the Clippers will try to avenge a near win against the LA team after catching up to a 15 point deficit in that game but still lost. “They didn’t beat us. We beat ourselves,” Kings star Cousin said. Kings rookie coach Mike Malone hopes to bring the winning ways in Sacramento who last saw a good run during the Chris Webber era, saying they need to play more aggressive on each end of the floor to repeat that feat. “It’s going to take a group effort every night on both ends,” Malone said. “Guys are playing for each other on both ends of the floor, which I think is the beginning of us truly changing the culture here in Sacramento.” You can watch Sacramento Kings vs LA Clippers live stream on the links below where you can watch online free.
Philadelphia 76ers vs Indiana Pacers Live Stream: Watch Online Free 7 ET Saturday Night The Philadelphia 76ers will try to tarnish the good-looking record of the Pacers as they visit them in Indiana and continue to prove critics wrong after being voted out to be the worst team in this season as said in the pre-season.

Pacers player Lance Stephenson who is looking good and replacing the injured Danny Granger in the line up said they need to be more consistent defeating teams and continue to stay on top. “We need to come out and destroy teams early,” Pacers guard Stephenson said. “We can’t rely on the second half to win the game.” Pacers coach Frank Vogel is impressed with how his team plays in the defensive end and hopes that they continue with it throughout the entire season. “Our starters, as a unit, have a gear defensively that they can reach that’s pretty special,” Vogel said.

The Sacramento Kings are struggling. A year ago, that would’ve been a given. But now, with a new ownership and the city still fighting to keep the team, they can’t afford another dismal season. New coach Mike Malone is not taking it lightly and he has used every possible rotation. He has changed the starting line-up numerous times. The only person who started constantly was DeMarcus Cousins, and despite his inconsistencies and his behavior, he is the only good thing that the Kings have at this point. From a report by NBA.com’s Scott Cooper, the Kings are actively trading to get better, if not this year, then the next. They have a possible asset in Jimmer Fredette, and they will take what they can get for him. “Fredette is widely known to be available after the decision in October to decline his option for next season. But the third-year guard, mostly out of the rotation, would bring little in return. One executive was asked if Fredette could bring as much as a pick late in the 2014 first round and said, ‘Not this year.’” Draft picks are gold next year, and as the college season continues to showcase the talents of
It’s like a nightmare scenario playing all over again. Derrick Rose’s right knee gives out and he is unable to walk. There was no contact that led to the injury, and this is the scariest type. Rose was not alone though. Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies is also out “indefinitely.” The reigning Defensive Player of the Year left the game against the San Antonio Spurs before the first half ended. For the verdict on Derrick Rose, here’s the official statement from the Bulls page on nba.com: “Bulls guard Derrick Rose sustained an injury to his right knee against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night. Subsequent examinations and an MRI confirmed a medial meniscus tear to his right knee, which will require surgery. Rose is out indefinitely, and will not accompany the team on the rest of its current road trip.” ‘Indefinitely’ can mean two days or two years, but the key phrase in the statement is ‘require surgery.’ Considering that Derrick Rose just returned from an ACL injury, Chicago might need to prepare for the worst case scenario-another season without Derrick Rose. It’s not as bleak for Marc Gasol though. From the Grizzlies page on nba.com: “The
