The Philippines’ Gilas Pilipinas is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the team Malaysia at 6:00 P.M. on August 23, 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Philippines’ beloved Gilas Pilipinas will attempt to sweep again its preliminary bracket in the ongoing 2017 Southeast Asia Games but it maybe not easy as they will face not only the Malaysian basketball squad but also the fans of the host country.
If the game versus the Thailand squad was a close match and most Pinoy basketball fans most probably at the edge of their seats before Gilas made its separation and eventually won the game, it was a complete opposite when they clashed with team Myanmar.
Just like in their earlier match in Manila during the 2017 SEABA Championship, the game ended once again in a blowout. The only thing that the Philippines men’s basketball squad need to make sure is that they need to at least finish the game with at least 54-point lead.
That is to beat Malaysia’s 95-42 score against the Burmese squad in their game opener. Just in case there’ll be a tie in the standings, then the second factor that the tournament will look is the points differential.
Since the beginning of the game it was all Philippines. Gilas started with a 15-0 run and then a 27-0 before the first half buzzer had sounded.

To make everyone got entertained inside the MABA Stadium, coach Jong Uichico unleashed his 18-years-old sensation player, Kobe Paras and he didn’t disappoint the pinoy fans present inside the venue.
Apart from his 20 points, eight rebounds, four assists, seven steals and four blocks Kobe also threw several thunderous dunks that surely made his Papa Bear (Benjie Paras) proud.
Team Malaysia are expected to come strong in their 6:00 PM showdown with the Gilas. Malaysia lost to Thailand (75-90) few days ago and needs to bounce back in order to keep its gold medal hopes alive.
