Iran is a team with 3 deadfull weapons : Mahdi Kamrani the PG, Samad Nikhah the Forward scoring machine and of course Hamed Haddadi the wall of Iran, a terrific block shoter with a good touch (comparing to Asian Level not NBA of course) anyway the first key to stop Iran is to put Mahdi ( one of the best PG if he ain't the best) under big time pressure, and avoiding Haddadi's blocks maybe trying to get him into foul trouble ( Aguilar's mission if he was hot) and maybe Aguilar is able to defend Samad Nikkhah since he is quick and Athletic. anyway Good luck..... tough game.

Iran is obviously going to Haddadi and Bahrami for easy points, so our job now is to make sure the ball doesn't reach these two with ease. The defense we played on Ha was good but we need more than that to give Haddadi a headache. Kerby needs to get his game going so he can repeat his performance vs. Iran two years ago (he forced three Iranian players to foul out).

The guards we need to watch out for is Kamrani as he is often responsible for dishing out the ball to Haddadi and Bahrami. Pressuring him is a MUST.

Davari and Afagh are both good outside shooters, so the defense we played on our opponents (which limited their outside shots) must work on these two as well as the other Iranian players.

Defense and good offense is the answer!

Win or Lose, It's okay for me. As long as they show toughness and play their hearts out. We all know how tough Iran in the last 2 years. Just give your 100%.

I hope Coach Yeng pull some surprises from the bench. We have the momentum, we just need to keep it.

Times like these... Everyone wants to agree with Joel23 :D

Early game tomorrow (Goodness, we should have played the 9AM game)... The only good thing about this is we are real real fresh for that tiff against Iran off the game against Taipei, where we were sizzling from the perimeter. The confidence is at an all-time high, hopefully we could capitalize on the momentum.

The Iranians are better at closing out than the Taiwanese so it's time for our penetration on the half court set to step up this time. Asi and Mick will be there defensively anything from them on offense will be a big, big bonus against that massive frontline of Iran.

If we are going to lose, it's going to be a small margin--- that is assuming we don't get as hot as earlier tonight.

Hope coach YG give more playing time to Gabe..he is not getting his rhythm, hope the coaches seen for that it might play as point or any specific role what he is gonna do..hope he can start the ball game vs IRAN for match ups and bring back his confidence, it seems he is out of rhythm now... it could like this'

PENISSI - C
AGUILAR - F
DILINGER - F
YAP - G
NORWOOD - G

But if he is out of rhythm again in the 7 mins. play for 1st qtr. I guess it's time to substitute, the important is coaches test his playing minutes..

- Still Gabe, Kerby and Arwind are out of rhythm, James Yap is done for CT, hope this guys shown tomorrow... :eek:

I don't see any reason for us to beat Iran because I don't think it's important to place 2nd in this group.

Why on earth would you want to be second when you will eventually meet China in the semi-finals (assuming we get past the Quarterfinals)?

We either grab 1st or 3rd as this keeps away from a team (China) that is 99% assured of winning against us.

If I was YG, I'd start developing a strategy that will steal a hard fought win against Jordan or Lebanon.

Good points. But isn't that looking too far ahead? China is in a different level probably but not a mile compared to Jordan, Iran and Lebanon. Either way, we'd have to pass TWO of these teams (knockout stages) if we want to qualify.

This team has not played together for so long i think it's important to continue building on their confidence as we go along--- we need that, we have such a volatile, streaky group of players that i think playing to win helps more rather than scouting/preparing and such.

Oh well, we'll see Guiao's plans about 12 hours from now.

But it is a given that they are the strongest. But here's a thought, if we do consider this strategy imagine the horror when Jordan manages to upset China and we were stuck at #3! It's a collision with China anyway!

So yeah, play our cards every time and play them to win. If this was poker, we never have the big stacks to begin with; what's the point of strategy if we are going to lose 'em chips anyway?

That's about right. And even then we'd have to worry about how many points Iran has over Korea. So it's really out of our hands positioning, match-ups)

i say, let's play to win nonetheless.

China's focus is somewhat questionable, based on their games with UAE and Kaz--they couldnt blow them out thoroughly. Yes they're strong right now but so far, they've not been the mad beast i expected. I won't be that surprised if the hungry Mideast teams beat them.

apiSigbinz
08-10-2009, 02:59 PM
if I were Coach Yeng since we'll eventually meet either Jordan or Lebanon i would use tomorrow's ballgame to test some really good set plays that can free up our SF.. so far they're not really successful with Jared and Norwood didn't even attempted to attack the basket that often..

they should also slow down the game to avoid injury and conserve energy.. at this point in the tourney, it is really important also to prepare ahead..

winning or losing does not really matter for me.. the important thing is they'll develop some penetration and inside play..

if they win then good, Iran might pull an upset against Korea.. yes it's not a typo, Korea is my favorite to beat Iran slightly..

if they lose, then at least they've gained something from playing with a MidEast country..

i agree. FREE GABE NORWOOD!!! :D

Gabe is not ready to lead this team, I don't see it happening, you got Jayjay who leads the team in assist and Miller who shows he can light up the outside shots at the 1 spot already. Gabe has not done both, so it would be counter productive to pressure Gabe at the 1 spot when he has yet to get any footing in the tourney.

Also I'm getting pissed at Kerby's tendency to not make the quick pass and opt out to pump fake the pass and letting the opponent set up their defense, he just can't let go of that tendency.

Dillinger on the other hand won't scrap for the ball when its going outside, this is the second straight game where he let the ball go out, thinking the opposition touched it last, you don't think, you just get the ball.

Thank God for Willie, James and Jayjay 3pt shooting they lit up the game against CT.

I don't expect us to win tomorrow but I would like to see a close and respectable game still.

maybe. but IMHO, gambling with Norwood at PG may be key to winning over the WABA teams and China. We need a tall line-up against those teams. A back court tandem like miller-yap is just too undersized for the bigger teams.

you don't expect us to win tomorrow? you are entitled to your own opinion. but given the track record of your predictions (nothing new here, you consistently think we'll lose), i think we'll do good tomorrow. :cool:


That's the approach of the PBA for a long time now. That is why we have struggled for so long... but now we can thank God that after this SBP will take over for our NT projects after this stint.

I know we are going to lose, I just hope its not that bad and we somehow by a miracle reach the 3rd round.

agreed that norwood should be allowed to play PG. i saw him yet again bring down the ball for a few seconds. i thought he's way better than our best buddy Miller who by the way is a hero in this win over taipei. But Miller got pawned again by the opponent's pg turning over the ball in a one on one match up hehe.

well, we haven't beaten IR Iran in recent history, the last WIN I can remember was the one in the 2007 Jones Cup. even this year, Smart Gilas had a hard time in Champions Cup against Iran and Vroman. hmm. It's more sane to say that we'd lose than we'll win. I do hope RP tries to fight hard to upset the defending Champs, a win against Iran guarantees are of a more favorable position in the QF. pero kung titingnan lang talaga yun nasa kabilang bakod e sa position ng RP e mamimili ka lang sa China, Lebanon or Jordan sa QF. :) awts.

translation:
the big dogs are on the other side of the fence :)

btw, there was an article released by FIBA Asia wherein Samad Nikkah was interviewed, and he never mentioned RP as the contender. when reporters in RP asked YG what can he say about the Iranian player who discounted RP from the threats on Iran's defense of the Championship, he said that it's more beneficial for our team to be underestimated by powerhouse teams like IR Iran. I hope YG sends a message to Samad tomorrow, hehehe, sikuhin na yan :)

anyways, debates like this are a waste of time. but atleast you know not everyone is happy with your predictions, este expectations.

dude, you say you expect us not to win. you say you KNOW we will lose. what kind of interpretation do you expect from me. if you think we will have a difficult game, then just say so. then you can say you still support and believe in the team. but you cannot say "i expect us not to win" and then say "i hope i can be proven wrong."

IMHO what you're doing is just plain wrong. but i guess that's just my point of view. but what can you expect? this is a forum for basketball fans. i see you expecting my team to lose. i see you KNOWING that it'll be a miracle for my team to advance. i tried to ignore your comments, but dude, enough is enough.

anyways, i just have to point this out to you. if you honestly believe that there is no contradiction with what you're saying (about knowing and expecting but not predicting; about knowing and expecting we will lose but wanting to be proven wrong) then i guess i can't do anything more about that.

My friend I really don't know where he came from, he had a good first post with his opinion of Norwood over mine and then he flamed me and digged up an old post to boot and claims I'm happy if we lose coz I said it would be a miracle if we made 3rd round.

I mean I posted prayers on this site for our team (although the second one came from someone else) I always said that I would love to be proven wrong and has posted countless times that credit must be given when its due but criticize when its necessary and I've done a little of both and will be honest about it but I am never happy if we lose, I've been frustrated we've come up short for 2 decades now and then I get a side comment when the person doesn't even know me.

I'm hated for my opinion and being questioned for my love of the team. Its insane, I really don't know where he is coming from with all this. I'm being judge on one post alone, long before I even knew how the ranking system in FIBA-Asia is.

When Iran clobbered us in the Jones cup, their coach Vaselin Matic had this to say afterwards:
“Game was very easy, no problem,”
Arrogant or not, he was right on here.

I hope this statement will rally us to perform very well later. :)

flaming... trolling... don't you think you're the one judging me???

anyways, debates like this are a waste of time. but atleast you know not everyone is happy with your predictions, este expectations.

dude, you say you expect us not to win. you say you KNOW we will lose. what kind of interpretation do you expect from me. if you think we will have a difficult game, then just say so. then you can say you still support and believe in the team. but you cannot say "i expect us not to win" and then say "i hope i can be proven wrong."

IMHO what you're doing is just plain wrong. but i guess that's just my point of view. but what can you expect? this is a forum for basketball fans. i see you expecting my team to lose. i see you KNOWING that it'll be a miracle for my team to advance. i tried to ignore your comments, but dude, enough is enough.

anyways, i just have to point this out to you. if you honestly believe that there is no contradiction with what you're saying (about knowing and expecting but not predicting; about knowing and expecting we will lose but wanting to be proven wrong) then i guess i can't do anything more about that.

moving on.....

Hay you started it not me, your the one saying that I'm something that I'm not and never will be proud to be and is taking my word out of context and putting spins in your reasons for your unprovoked attacks...

I don't know where your coming from but if it gives you any comfort then by all means you win since you don't want to be proven wrong about your beliefs of me then fine. I'll respect that (I mean its not like this is the 1st time I've ever been misunderstood) and I'll respect the other members of the board, so they can post their opinions whatever it is coz I never for once believe an opinion to be wrong unless it is openly states an attack on another. So lets enjoy the entire FIBA games, win or lose, believe me or not.

Btw I rather have a miracle than none at all.

Not a bad idea since Palma previoulsy coached the undersized Angolan team and was successful in landing them victories in the African Championships.

After Toroman, we need to look at coaches that have effective systems for our national team programs.

so, if we win against iran we will face lebanon? and if we lose it's jordan? if you ask me i'd rather face lebanon in the quarters for all of the pinoy and lebanese forumers here.it will really be a good battle between lebanon's high calibre A-team and our undermanned but scrappy NT(playing without 3 of our best players in williams, reyes and hontiveros but still deadly). However, to get to lebanon, we have to exhaust our energy and risk injuries in trying to win over iran. coach guiao so far has proven to be an analytical coach. i think he will not force a win tomorrow. lebanon vs philippines in fiba asia might not materialize.

He played vs. Taiwan. He had a stupid reach in foul. Then attempted an ill-advised, albeit open, three point shot. Yeng Guiao pulled him out faster than Paul Artadi runs. Either he is still unhealthy or his plays were unhealthy for the team. Let's ask Guiao.

Iran and the other Middle Eastern teams are not unbeatable...We've done it before so I don't get why people are saying as if they're on another level....Basketball is basketball man....P.I. has a good chance of beating these teams but "only if they play their cards right"...

We gotta get rid this mentality that P.I. is inferior to other teams..our players are one of the most skilled if not the most skilled players in Asia our team can really match up to any teams as long as P.I. play "as a unit"...We got some of the best talents but P.I. is weak "as a team"...that's the only thing that's holding us back we need more familiarity with each other...

how to beat Iran...

rebound, shoot 3s, shoot fts

get Haddadi thrown out of the game early. He can bring Pennisi with him if he wants to. :D

roughen up Samad Nikkah.

and I guess we can handle it after that. :D

kidding aside, I think we should defend Haddadi very well and show him that we won't let him score that easily. put taulava and pennisi on him if we could maybe let him go to the Free throw line. and of course defend Samad Nikkah very well! he is a very good three pt shooter and penetrator. I think we should put Dillinger or Santos against him.

aside from Haddadi, the Iranian National Team appears to be almost the same size as the RP team.

they have 6'3" shooter Afagh, 6'7" do it all Nikkah, 6'7" PF (iranian barkley daw) Sahakian. 5'11" quick PG Kamrani.

often off the bench are 6'1" SG Davari sometimes starts instead of Afagh, 6'3" PG Amini, 6'11" C Dohragi, 6'8 PF Tajik, 6'6" SF Akbari.

I believe Iran is the team that likes to "babad" their starting line-up. so we will probably see the same line-up all through out the game with some reserves coming in every now and then.. so I think we should run. get them tired. and get haddadi in foul trouble, or get his hot head running.

well, we haven't beaten IR Iran in recent history, the last WIN I can remember was the one in the 2007 Jones Cup. even this year, Smart Gilas had a hard time in Champions Cup against Iran and Vroman. hmm. It's more sane to say that we'd lose than we'll win. I do hope RP tries to fight hard to upset the defending Champs, a win against Iran guarantees are of a more favorable position in the QF. pero kung titingnan lang talaga yun nasa kabilang bakod e sa position ng RP e mamimili ka lang sa China, Lebanon or Jordan sa QF. :) awts.

translation:
the big dogs are on the other side of the fence :)

btw, there was an article released by FIBA Asia wherein Samad Nikkah was interviewed, and he never mentioned RP as the contender. when reporters in RP asked YG what can he say about the Iranian player who discounted RP from the threats on Iran's defense of the Championship, he said that it's more beneficial for our team to be underestimated by powerhouse teams like IR Iran. I hope YG sends a message to Samad tomorrow, hehehe, sikuhin na yan :)

Yeah, one game at a time and one prayer at a time; but if God needs help with the actual numbers and computations, here it is:

Korea def. RP, 69-56 (KOR + 13, RP -13) = 0
RP def. Iran, 80-66 (RP +14, Iran -14) = +1
Iran def. Korea, 83-70 (Iran +13, KOR -13) = -1

That's the simplistic view but here's the actual FIBA computation (if indeed):

RP- 56+80/69+66 = 1.007
Iran - 66+83/80+70 = 0.993
Korea - 69+70/56+83 = 1.000

But yeah, one game at a time, and one prayer at a time :D

When Iran clobbered us in the Jones cup, their coach Vaselin Matic had this to say afterwards:
“Game was very easy, no problem,”
Arrogant or not, he was right on here.

I hope this statement will rally us to perform very well later. :)


its arrogant at its highest level..you don't add insult to injury..i guess he was pissed because ranidel retaliated Hadidi..if RP plays hardnose defense today, it would be payback time..and how i wish YG would be saying, “Game was very easy, no problem,”

Today will be a good game to watch. I just dont know what is on Coach YG's mind - will he try to win this game and show most of his cards or he wont really go for a win due to the probability that RP maybe facing them in the quarters? YG may also try for a win, who knows if we beat Iran and SOKOR will lose against Iran and by the quotient system will be on the top of our group thus the possibility of playing against lowly quatar. NO matter what lets just keep supporting our team guys win or lose - a prayer do help and miracles do happen (tita cory). GO POWERADE RP TEAM!

YG will just play their usual game because winning against Iran (Note: Defending champs) is a task at itself, how much more winning over them by 14points or more to have a better quotient.

Good point on the intentional international experience exposure for the guys you have mentioned. Also the guys who has not been consistently playing well (Santos, Raymundo and to an extent Aguilar, Helterbrand, Dillinger) will probably see more action than usual. Even if we lose, i do hope they get a semblance of rhythm or confidence going into the next round.

I've seen the scenario if we lose to Iran and keeps 3rd slot but no scenario if we win.

08-11-2009, 02:08 AM
I am reposting here what I posted in another thread... because I think it is more appropriate here in this thread:

Iran's game is built around their 7'2" Center, #15 Hamed Ehadadi, who is averaging 15.5 ppg and 10.5 rpg. The strategy for RP is obvious: from the outset, attack and foul-bait Ehadadi and get him into foul trouble.

Their other big guy, 6'11" #13 Ali Doraghi, had not been much of a factor with averages of 1.2 ppg and 2 rpg.

Other players to watch are:
#7 Mahdi Kamrani, 5'11" Guard, 13.8 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 2.5 apg
#14 Mohammadsamad Nikkah, 6'3" Forward, 20 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 5.2 apg

These last 2 should not be match-up problems for our guys like Gabe Norwood, Kerby Raymundo or Jared Dillinger.

The main problem is Ehadadi...

***

The problem with this strategy is that Ehadadi is averaging only 2 fouls per game in the 4 games he's played, so far. Its clear that this guy knows how to avoid fouls.

And, besides, I don't see any RP player who could effectively post up against him and draw fouls... certainly, not Mick or Japeth... and Sonny and Kerby are too small. We're left with Asi.

The only player I can see who can suck up fouls (with greater possibility) is Cyrus, if we can let the small guy slash and hit the Iranian big guy head on, usually and I mean usually the little guy gets the benefit of the doubt. So no moving away from contact while attacking may be the key to getting the Iranian big guy in foul trouble. (and hopes the refs see's it the same way)

If we win against iran and iran wins against the sokors by a big margin, that would mean a triple tie and lets pray a quotient system would carry us against the quataris instead.

Realistically, this is how i see the final standings after round 2:

Iran 6 - 0
Korea 5 - 1
Phil 3 - 3
Taiwan 2 -4
Japan 1 - 5
Kuwait 0 -6

China 6 - 0
Jordan 5 -1
Lebanon 3 -3
Qatar 2 -4
Kazakhstan 1 - 5
UAE 0 - 6

So the match-ups would be:

Iran vs. Qatar (Iran winning)
Jordan vs. Phil (i would be the happiest guy on earth if the Phil. upsets
Korea vs. Lebanon (tough to predict but i see Lebanon winning a thriller)
Jordan)
China vs. Taiwan (China by a mile)

Semi-final would be:

Iran vs. Jordan (I see Jordan upsetting Iran but then again, i'm dreaming it would be the Philippines here who i believe also has the capability to pull the upset axe on Iran)
China vs. Lebanon - Lebanon is good but still not at par with the Yao Ming less China squad

3rd Place:

Lebanon vs. Iran (Iran getting the 3rd and final slot, Lebanese heartbroken)


Finals:

China vs. Jordan (China will still reign supreme)

Oh... I know its a miracle for us to win, I just hope we don't get trounce... >_<...

King Leonidas: Well, that's an easy choice for us, Arcadian! Spartans never retreat! Spartans never surrender! Go spread the word. Let every Greek assembled know the truth of this. Let each among them search his own soul. And while you're at it, search your own.

best of luck to RPs elite shooters: Raymundo, Thoss & Aguilar. Make us forget Yap's yesterday performance. note everytime our elite shooters take the 3, there are people like Yap or Miller not taking it. funny, CT zone can't stop Yap but Kirby can.

law of averages. Worst shooting vs. Kor, super vs CT; possible for Iran to have a bad day. we can win this. fearful forecast: RP by 5

overheard YG to Arwind? Kirby bad shot, Arwind O reb. missed follow-up; next play Arwind's man got the O reb. & follow-up, 2 pts.
YG: "TANG _N_ ! anong pinaggagawa mo!"

reason Kirby stayed: hustle. Arwind out: SMB

I think Arwind just need to compose himself, he is the missing outside shooter that we need to wake up. He is too hell bent on making the steals that Arwind loses his position in defense when the opponents starts their rotation, Arwind gets lost and finds himself always behind the player he is guarding on the offensive board.

If we can get the Arwind of the Jones Cup, the pesky but concentrated defender, he will get playing time and will add to our fire power.

I still believe TEAM PILIPINAS can still accomplish it's mission to qualify for Istanbul .... they need to continue with their physical defense, keep on improving their outside shooting, do better with their free throws, lessen their errors and turnovers and keep on playing as a TEAM. The screens and picks plus quick ball movement should free-up our shooters. Jayjay, Japeth and Arwind must now bring-out their A-game, I am expecting the other teams to tighten up on James, Willie and Cyrus. Asi and Sonny must keep on attacking the basket. Kerby is doing great in defense but must lessen his "gigil" on offense. Jared and Gabe is doing fine but I know they could still do better. Mick is doing what is expected from him.

jxuusa
08-11-2009, 03:16 AM
Another thing I notice that is a problem for the Filipino team is floor spacing. Haddadi is play further out (like near the FT line) on defense, which basically allows him to control the entire paint area with his height and wingspan, and the Filipino center and the rest of its players are all getting bunched up around the 3-point line area and not able to get open for decent shots.

Its 25-14 already... but one thing it seems is that the Iranians have little sportsmanship. And Haddadi fucking screams at the top of his lungs at like every shot regardless of make or miss.

That #12 Filipino center simply can't do anything about Haddadi. Iran will probably ride Haddadi all the way to the finals again or close to it cause nobody in this tournament big enough to guard him. Why does he feel the need to scream during every shot? Does his scream thing it'll draw the attention of the refs and get him an and one shot or something.

Haddadi can score all he wants the problem is we are putting everyone else in the FT line and now we have to loosen up on defense coz of it and our offensive shooting has went down hill, we are not sinking the open shots and forcing the contested ones.

Well your right, no implication what-so-ever in terms of getting to the next round but wouldn't you like to be number 1 in this group (even though we need a miracle to get there) and face Qatar instead of Lebanon or Jordan in the next round. ^^;;;

Anyways I think its the lackluster performance that we are reacting to, we just want to see our guys pumped up and angry not withering like this. The Iranians are laughing at us, we are not bringing the hurt as they say (not in the literal terms but in basketball terms).

Yes the Iranians are quite arrogant. Let them be they deserve this time under the spot light. We have zero sense of urgency. A motivational coach like Yeng Guiao can only do so much. We perform better with our backs against the wall. We'd be playing much better defense x 10 tomorrow vs. Kuwait.

All is good and not unexpected.

It's becoming worst... we must at least put up a good fight even if we lose.

It's just that his strength is not that good....

I agree with you, haddadi is not that strong as a center, the sadder fact is filipino big men are slower and weaker than him...

Damn fouls are killing RP. They have more three, shooting good from 3, but 12 first half fouls to 2 for Iran has created more chances at the line. Willie Miller was 1/2 and that was it for RP at the charity stripe.
Hadaddi has been a killer. very different than when we played him in 2007.

The major difference between the 2007 Team and this POWERADE Team was at that time the RP Team was not afraid of Iran. The present team seems to be awed and you can see fear in the eyes of the Filipinos even before the game started.

Laws of average has taken its toll. if we play well, we really play well. if we play bad, we really are bad. But the fact is, we play bad most of the time.

Cyrus got hit in the head by Ehdadi but no foul, we should have went at him earlier and we may be the ones getting the call. Instead of getting the call against.

On a positive note, we doing very one the 3pt stripe and Norwood may have found his offense.

The bad news is, Iran has found a way to break our defense and now our guys are losing their assignments.

Nice DUNK Gabe!
