    Gilas should focus on japan. Play hard on defense and close outs on the perimeter so we can carry them out if we play in the finals. Play fast pace basketball on offense for 4 quarters. That’s how gilas will beat bigger teams either china or iran. Pinoys are all excited, olympic dream is so attainable. Lets go Philippines.

    Good job to defeat Lebanon, next to defeat Japan; maintain the quickness close guarding, do not leave the under goal no man to follow up/recover the ball incase missed ring, most importantly stay cool to maintain the normal pulse in shooting power, but do irritate the opponent in the most subtle way (avoidance of referee’s whistle) to lost their normal temper and become to rattle.
