    That's still impressive for SK to win against NZ.

    Certainly. I wonder if he was trying to miss the second and made it anyway. Glad it worked out that way, overtime shouldn't count in point differential.

    Does anybody have any idea about how serious Bhriguvanshi's injury is? He missed the last game. Will he be able to face Syria today?

    First of all hard luck Iraq ! They lack the experience to end a match but it's something that you get step by step.

    Secondly big respect to the Gilas fans in Lebanon !
    You guys are amazing ! Your passion for the game is always something special !

    Good luck to Jordan and Syria tonight. It won't be easy at all.

    Al Nashama give a hell of a fight against Iran. Jordanian can be proud of their team ! I hope their federation learn from this game that they have the talent to compete with the best even without Dwairi, Abbas and the naturalized player so they should work to put back Jordan in the Asian map (integrate Dwairi, a strong league, etc).
    Hard luck Al Nashama

    So a possible Iran Lebanon in QF if Lebanon defeats Chinese Taipei !

    Jordan- Irak : an interesting game (Iraq deserve to be in QF but after Jordan's game against Iran, i don't know both of them deserve to be honnest, i think Jordan if they focus they can win it)
    Big credit to Abdeen's game ! I love this player !

    This should almost be a certainty as Chinese Taipei have been really really disappointing this tournament. Gilas Cadets clobbered these guys last month so I don't see any reason Lebanon have any trouble whatsoever with them. Iran/Lebanon is gonna be helluva game!

    Kevin Ware would be crucial for Jordan against Iraq on Monday. Will he play? Or is the problem with passport so huge that it can't be fixed by the authorities in time?

    One can see from Korea's training today the hardwork they are putting up for their Japan match. This is the first time where Koreans don't feel that advantage of just playing and they'll win as this is a different Japan team for them.

    Lebanon vs Iran in quarters, Its hard to predict. Heart says Lebanon, head says Iran. Pelle has to matchup with Ehadadi, this is why he was brought in and naturalized.

    Exactly !
    Iran it's maybe our biggest rival in this last decade !
    Who can forget 2007 ? 10 Years passed but never forgotten !
    I hope that tomorrow we can take revenge from 2007 !
    To be honest I wanted to play against Iran just for that ! I know it will be hard but if we lose it means that we don't deserve to be in the semi-final !
    I think tomorrow the stadium will turn into hell !

    China been the joke of the tournament to be honest. All this nba players they pay millions and millions to come to their league, and level of their players are poor.
    Syria, and IRAQ both war zone countries deserved to win vs China.

    Yeh, that title we felt it was stolen from us.It was when Ehadadi rise came and we got to know him. No Yao, No ehadadi we might have couple of championships by now.

    Wow. Tough luck Syria, China just that one in the end.

    For sure the teams that beat them and almost beat China got game. But what's with China this tournament? Did having 2 national teams made them so much beatable?

    They are vulnerable if playing outside China..just check their 2013 Fiba asia championship performance in Manila..beaten by korea and chinese taipei despite fielding probably their best lineup..and 2014 asian games beaten by japan and almost beaten again by CT placing 5th..

    I was a bit skeptical at first when Yao Ming decided to split China into two squads. It might be part arrogance on them thinking they had the depth to win & compete with Asian teams. Looking just at Iraq & Syria, the compete level has certainly grown. Madanly btw was a beast. When he was teammates with Jayson Castro in the PBA, its was a bit surprising both those guys couldn't win the title that year.
