The team Lebanon is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the team Chinese Taipei at 2:00 A.M. on August 15, 2017 (Philippines time) in Zouk Mosbeh, Lebanon.
Chinese Taipei’s lone victory in the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup was against the winless team Hong Kong in Group D.
Looking at their previous last two matches, they lost with a surmountable margin. It’s clear that Chinese Taipei will be entering the game as underdogs.
To add to the Taiwanese squad concerns, they will be greeted with hundreds of Lebanese basketball fans chanting for the host team.
Who said that 37-years-old is too old for basketball? Fadi El Khatib proves that in his father time he can still deliver points to his ballclub.
Against team New Zealand, he was the go-to-guy and the all-around-guy as he topped in all categories. El Khatib dropped almost a triple-double performance against the Tall Blacks.
He scored 33 points, 11 rebounds and 8 rebounds unfortunately in a losing effort.
