    Default FIBA Asia Championships 2013 - Day 3 Games Discussion

    Let's go Malaysia! Only down to Korea by single digit in 2nd quarter. Sure Korea is tired and probably not taking the game seriously. But having watched Malaysia for a few consecutive days (I know it's lame but there are no other games at this time) I have to say this Malaysia "B" or "C" team is not as bad as the scores indicate. They probably haven't trained for more than a week since they can't hit any open shots but they are reasonably fundanmentally sound. That is, compared to the 2009 Sri Lanka team, man that was an awful awful team.

    lol Kim Joo-sung had to play the entire 3rd and still only a 10pt game at the end of 3rd. Now it will be hilarious if there is an upset and Korea fails to advance (which would require help from China beating Iran.)

    Good fight Malaysia. Kuek was on target for the game. Lee Jong-Hyun and Lee Seung-Jun works well together.

    Korea won by 22, but still, a big round of applause to Malaysia especially Kuek Tianyuan, man of the game. Entire team showed a lot of heart against a far better opponent. Korea must have had like 20 turnovers this game. The fact that you make the Koreans full-court press you in the 4th quarter already indicates that you have won their respect. Jacky Ng must be proud.

    Haven't seen the hot "ambassadorettes" today yet (maybe they'll show up during the Iran game hehe), but there were a few cute Korean supporters in the first game, I don't know whether they are Korean or Pinay. One had a sign that read "Kim Tae Sool" in English, is that you CKR13?

    Definitely not me. I am somewhat still disappointed that Park Chan-Hee was cut. But if you see a sign for Zhang Bo, that would be me.

    Man India has improved a lot. Grewal is a legit scorer and they now have decent big men. #10 is tall!

    First time I watch Satnam playing since the last Asian U18 Championship... He's slightly improving but the 17 year still has a very long way to go even though he's been developing his skills with IMG in the U.S over the last 2 years. I do see this Indian NT improving a lot though. Coach Fleming is working hard on developing a descent NT and good basketball program in India.
    Vishesh is a great shooter and seem to be the leader of this young team... Note: 8 players from this Indian NT are born 1990 onwards so that's definitely great for them!

    You can check the official website (but it's not working like 90% of the time unfortunately)... As for your team don't feel bad. You have a nice team which will keep getting better in due time.

    Hayes with 18 points in the 1st quarter vs. Hong Kong

    They're comparing him with Ron Harper
