Gilas Pilipinas versus Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (2013 FIBA AsiaChampionship)

I am giving you now the blow by blow update of the happenings in the basketball game between Gilas Pilipinas and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia... (Trying to be a sports anchor here... Hehehe!)

Started the game by a 3 point shot from LA Tenorio from Gilas Pilipinas but KSA took the lead on the 1st quarter ending of a score 16 to 14.  The old people behind us were not so happy with the Gilas performance and have been BOO-ing the first 5 players: Tenorio, Pingris, Douhit, Fonacier and Chan.

The 2nd quarter was a close fight but the Philippines took the lead at 35 versus 28 and at 3rd quarter, 57 over 46.  There was also so much substitution for both teams as if testing the right combination of players, giving the chance for all of them to dribble. #FairAndSquare

The referees were also so active in giving calls to even the smallest pat or touch of each player, giving each team almost up to 4 personal fouls for some of them, like in PH: Fajardo, Pingris and Tenorio

And finally, the game ended with another 3 point shot from Alapag making the final score to 78 leading KSA by 12 points.

It was a good win by the Philippines, although the feedback from the people around us was that the players looked like they did not play at their best...
