I think we took about 35 and we only average 21 a game. We give them credit for the defense at the same time, it was bad shot selections on our part.”What caused Meralco’s first quarter downfall was its measly 2-of-17 shooting from three as Ginebra established control early and took a 49-35 halftime lead. Though the Bolts were able to hit those three-pointers in their third quarter rally, their 8-of-24 sniping, which translates to 24-percent, was still way below their average of 37 percent, a league-best.READ: Ginebra ousts TNT, faces Meralco in PBA Finals rematchBlack reminded his wards to be more intelligent in their shot selections, saying that just because the Gin Kings’ defense are giving them space to shoot a three, it doesn’t mean that they should always go for it.“They’re sagging, but you don’t have to take three-point shots because they’re sagging.

Teenagers who are habitually glued to their smartphones are more likely to be unhappier than their peers, a study has found. Researchers from the University of Georgia in the US, analysed data from a survey of over a million US teens.The survey asked students questions about how often they spent time on their phones, tablets and computers, as well as questions about their in-the-flesh social interactions and their overall happiness.On average, they found that teens who spent more time in front of screen devices – playing computer games, using social media, texting and video chatting – were less happy than those who invested more time in non-screen activities like sports, reading newspapers and magazines, and face-to-face social interaction.

The happiest teens used digital media a little less than an hour per day.
