    A win for Gilas. But watta UGLY win. And the price they paid for it — Andray Blatche’s broken stem! If they play like that against Iran tomorrow, better pack up already! Let’s just hope Dondon lits his fire against Iran. And Andray’s leg is not gimpy tomorrow. AND PLEASE– DO IMPROVE YOUR FREE SHOOTING!! Had you lost against Japan today, it’s because of your DISMAL FREE SHOOTING! NAKAKAHIYA KAYO. PROFESSIONAL CAGERS YET CAN’T MAKE TWO FREE SHOTS if their lives depend on it! SHAME!

    Sayang ang playing time ni Hontiveros, naghihintay lang ng bola, ang sama ng style. Ang dapat sa isang shooter mag move without the ball para may changce syang ma libre.
