Canada defeats Gilas Pilipinas 90-77

Gilas Pilipinas first game in Jones Cup 2017 was a lesson to learn game as they fall 90-77 against the Canada team.

1st Quarter was a bit tough for the Gilas as they behind by 9 points but was able to comeback and end the 1st quarter strong Gilas 20- Canada-19.

In the 2nd half, the Gilas Pilipinas looks struggling and can't connect their shot, the defense of the Canada was excellent and their speed also gave a big trouble for the Gilas. The second half ended 34-44 for the Canada.

3rd round was a close round for the Gilas as they battled hard and it was a little physical. The Gilas has a good game but Canada had an answer on both fences. Gilas 54-Canada -66.

4th Quarter was all done by the Canadian as they exploded and lead the game as much as 15 points. The Pilipinas turnovers were too many and they definitely haven't had the experience so far in the international games. There's no go-to-guy for the Gilas and their shooting percentage was worse.

The game ended 90-77 in favor of the Canada Team.

Philippines will face the Chinese Taipei A tomorrow June 16 watch it live on TV5 at 7PM.
