Taiwan just upsets China. Can they do it AGAIN against Iran.

Iran is beating every team with all their might. Even if they are leading in a huge number, Iran's coach still playing their main man slaughtering the already slaughtered counterpart team.

Chinese Taipei on the other hand is in their RED HOT Shooting performance in years. They are Riding this Cinderella story with their Naturalized Center Quincy Davis.

He's okay according to Mohsena.

If they can perform the same defense on Iran's big men then they have a chance.

Very True! but UPSETS happens sometime. The way Taiwan is playing this tournament have all the tools to do so.

Taiwan will not be able to defend Iran. Iran plays smart basketball. They are very mobile and physically stronger.

The way Chinese Taipei is playing, not only did they earn my respect but also my admiration. It will be difficult for them to beat Iran, but Iran overlooks this team they might regret it.

Best of luck to both teams

Iran definitely has the edge here but CT is playing inspired ball. Another but is it seems the CT are too happy with their win over China that they might still be in cloud 9 right now. Iran has to play their big 3 around 36 mins for them to assure a seat in the finals. Playing their 2nd unit more than 10 mins together wouldn't cut it and if I were them Iranians I wouldn't want a team like CT to gain confidence and a thought of being able to beat my team.

Good start for TPE! Nice balance, good accuracy, and Iran looking astonishingly unworried.

15-0 running for Iran, TPE very very sloppy with the ball.

Iran dominating the boards while CT has been making too many turnovers. Bad transition defense for CT in the 2nd quarter.

3 fouls for Hadadi.

Good run by CT to end the half. This isn't over yet. Hadadi and Bahrami both are non-factors so far.

haddadi with 3 fouls in the first half. its no longer an easy game for iran. chinese taipei is feisty. chinese taipei is a 2nd half team, iran has'nt been tested so far.

its all kamrany in the first half.

I can barely believe what I have seen in this 2QT honestly. Taiwan was making TOs after TOs and seemed completely unable to defend very simple two-men transition offenses by Iran and did not even seem to recognize they could foul to stop those fastbreaks... This is frightening, really. I did not know they were that weak in defense. The final minute 6-0 run saved the day for them but this 20-2 run by Iran before is something they have to worry about.

What are they playing at, honestly? Even India is a better defending team...

Even a one-on-three fastbreak they weren't able to stop.

Total domination by Iran on the boards. CT with just 1 attempt every possession, 13 total rebounds for CT and the 3rd quarter is almost done.

CT looks gassed at this point. Probably gave too much last night.

Iran making it look so easy. They are just playing tough defense and then goes on a fastbreak play on the other end.

Bye bye Taiwain, the Cinderella story is over...
The only explanations I can think of are:
- Exhaustion because their game requires lots of energy while Iran has cruised through the tournament so far
- Outcoaching
- Ourebounding doesn't help...

UGLY AWAKENING

4 points only for taipei in the 3rd quarter, what defense.

Iran players are everywhere and their hands are everywhere. It's like they have 7 players on the court.

You really thought that CT would win Iran?! Exhaustion isn't not a excuse. There is a big difference in levels. If a team is up to the level and have this winning mentality, exhaustion becomes an irrelevant factor. Coz simply mentally they can still execute even though physically they are tired. In CT case, they are letting their judgement/execution get affected by their physical condition something that you can't easily find in a high level team. Simple example Jordan last edition, they had a tougher game vs Iran in the QFs back then and yet managed to win the Semis.

Just imagine if Iran had Kazemi in their line-up... it would have been a total overkill.

No I did not think they would win but have you seen the nb of turnovers they made?? How you seen their awful defense? Only fatigue can explain those unforced errors that even India don't make!
I recognize Iran have a size advantage and a defense one step above, but still...

Well Upset is not in the Air this time for Taiwan.

Only Korea could give Iran a good match up because of their speed and pinpoint passing while moving constantly.
I also thought Gilas can do it as well.

Mahdi Kamrani 19 points (7/7) shooting, 6 assists, 6 rebounds. Great game!
