Gilas Pilipinas to play Chinese-Taipei A tonight

Gilas Pilipinas will face Chinese-Taipei A in the continuation of the 39th William Jones Cup, start time at 7:00 PM Philippine Standard Time, at the Taipei Peace International Basketball Hall, in Taipei.

The Philippine basketball national team suffered 90-77 loss to Canada in the opening last Saturday. It was not shocking that they lost but how they played the game with 22 turnovers. Also, the entire team couldn’t keep up against the Canadians. Aside from turnovers, Gilas Pilipinas gave up 40 freethrows and 26 fouls that concerned coach Chot Reyes.

“I’m happy with the effort we came up with,” Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes said as his young crew matched up pretty well. He, however, pointed out to the 40 free throws that the Filipinos gave up which spelled the difference.
“You can’t give up 40 free throws against a quality team like that and expect to win,” Reyes said.

Gilas Pilipinas will try to avoid a 0-2 start as they play in a hostile environment with fans mostly cheering for Taipei. Without a doubt, Gilas Pilipinas’ Kobe Paras needs to score more points after making only four points yesterday. Kiefer Ravena also has to take more of the responsibility in offense.
