Was it hot in China right now or it’s just Dondon? Well if you missed watching the game between Gilas Pilipinas and Japan then you missed how the Cebuano hotshot torched the net as he poured in 18 points while shooting 6 out of 9 from beyond the three-point line.
Watching how Dondon Hontiveros converted each three-point shots its just like playing an old school video game called NBA Jam. The moment a player is hot, the basketball will turn into a ball-of-fire and it will be impossible for the player to miss.
Gilas Pilipinas was led by Andray Blatche who has another monster game with 22 points and 13 rebounds while Jayson Castro logged 20 points and dished out 7 Assists.
In the first half, the Japanese led by Makoto Hiejima catches fire as the number 6 scored 22 points before entering the second half. However, he was only limited to 6 points in the final half, thanks to that tenacious defense of Gabe Norwood.
Earlier today, China beats Iran for the Finals and Championship round by 13 points.
