Two East Asian teams battle for third in which at stake is the last ticket for the World Cup next year. Ofcourse Chinese Taipei beat South Korea in the 2013 Jones Cup, but Korea has made progress with their defense. We'll see if Chinese Taipei is still hungry and see if Korea still has some fight in them for tomorrow.

Chinese Taipei deserves it. Then give a wildcard slot to South Korea. As much as I hate Tseng and Lin, I think these guys deserve a shot at the world championship before they formally retire.

I hope it will rain 3 pt shots tomorrow!

Personally there are 3 teams I like beside Gilas. And so it happens to be Taiwan, Iran, Korea. (Particular Order)

I think Korea will get this one. Well whatever happens, these 2 teams deserve to go to spain.
World Cup Organizers should make this happen.

I'm rooting for Taiwan tomorrow as well although Korea remains the favourite to win it. Korea has consistently performed well on bronze medal games and tomorrow shouldn't be any different.

Only a couple of teams (Iran and Philippines) have managed to survive Korea's tenacious defense. If Taiwan solves this problem, then they have a good chance.

Im on Korea on this one, experience and Davis would be Taiwan's edge here but overall, Korea is a better defensive team. On offense it seems like its just even.

Good luck to both teams later. Both enjoyed their stay in Manila.

South Korea in Donggon Garden, Makati. Yang Dong-Geun plans to be back soon for Boracay with his wife and kid.

Chinese Taipei (I don't know where this place is) but Lu Cheng-Ju said that he plans to go back before the SBL season begins for a vacation.

It will be a close call but Korea remains a favorite to win the 3rd slot to Spain...

Quincy Davis was interviewed awhile ago by FOX Sports TW and he said that the wound he suffered from his scalp against Iran last night is not a cause for concern and he will be available to start against Korea. He also added that they and for himself want that ticket to Spain.

Chinese Taipei should win this one... Asia level Basketball would be belittled again with a Korean win..

Too much Kim Min Goo. Can't believe this is just a college player. Definitely a superstar in the making.

Very poor defense from Chinese Taipei. To beat this Korean team, you need to be physical all the way.

I agree..IMO Taipei is more gifted than PHL offensively having more shooters.If you want the Koreans to miss their shots,you have to be less a meter on their face all the time.

True but Taiwan was gasping before SK stepped up their defense... I think TPE gave it all, and more, against China.

Poor CT, playing the 2 best defensive teams back to back.... Hope they get a wildcard for FIBA World Cup.

I don't think he is still a college player. from what i have read he applied for the NBA Draft last year and went undrafted.

There's no excuse to explain their sloppiness. Not even fatigue. Ugly game now.... TPE not even able to accelerate and take risks.

Congratulations to Korea! Taipei looked gassed. After averaging 86 PPG in their first 7 games, they only scored 60 and 57 against Iran and Korea respectively for an average of 58.5 PPG in their last 2 games.

No he did not. Real GM's resident Asian scout just projects and predicts Asian prospect base on their eligibility. Kang Sang-Jae is listed in Real GM for 2016 Draft.

Well I think this game just showed that CT is still a tier-2 team in Asia even with so many FIBA veterans on their team.

Still, I'm sure they are more than satisfied with their 2013 campaign beating 2 arch-rivals Philippines and China.

So where is Kim Min Goo playing now?

Kim Min-Goo last 2 games average: 24 PPG, 17-29 FG, 10-21 3 PT FG

Lin Chih-Chieh last 2 games average: 1.5 PPG, 1-12 FG, 1-9 3 PT FG, 4 TPG

He is still in college with some units left. Will play for Kyung-Hee in the College winter league and for the All Korea Cup.

So Kim Min-Goo must be high on Todd Purves' scouting list. Wasn't he supposed to be scouting the Koreans for an NBA team?

According to a poster on Real GM, Todd was in Manila to check former NBA players like Haddadi, Yi and Hayes. Talents like Japeth Aguilar, Guo Ailun and Satnam Singh was on the check list.
