The Smart Gilas Pilipinas started like a house on fire as they dashed to a 16-0 run in the first quarter of their game against the taller Indians in the Asian Games 2014 at the Hwaseong Sports Complex in Korea.
From that point on they never looked back en route to their first Win in the tournament via a 85-76 victory at the expense of Team India. A right dose of consistent outside shooting from LA Tenorio, Jeff Chan, and Gary David mixed with fine inside scoring from Marcus Douthit and Junemar Fajardo enabled the Philippines to fend off the feisty Indians. Gilas' biggest lead went as high as 19 points.
A lot of good things happened for Team Philippines in this game. One of which is this nice alley-oop dunk from Mr. Japeth Aguilar.
Gilas' next game will be against the FIBA Asia Championship Gold medalist Team Iran on Thursday at 1:00PM. The game will also be televised on TV5.
