Just like a diesel powered machine Gilas Pilipinas started slow but once found its momentum the power will be in full swing. Just like what happened when team Philippines met team India in the ongoing FIBA Asia Cup 2015.
Watch game highlights below.
Was it the hangover or the defense of the Indians made Gilas scored low in the first quarter as Philippines was held under 10 points in less than 2 minutes before the 1st quater has ended. In the second half of action, it was a different story as the Filipinos executed a back-court press defense that made the Indian squad surprised and committed turnover after turnover.
The lead of Gilas ballooned to more than 30-points and never looked back as they changed the mood of the ballgame just like they’re playing in a playground. Terrence Romeo led Gilas Pilipinas with 20 points while teammate Marc Pingris contributed his FIBA Asia 2015-high with 10 points. Vishesh Bhriguvanshi led India in scoring as he logged 21 points.
With the win versus India, Philippines has sweep the second round and will enter the quarterfinals as the top seed.
