    Egypt doubles a LOT but we can't find the open man. Or the open man can't knock down the open shot.
    Yep man, we should be easily be leading by 10-15 points. Hopefully this would be our only bad shooting game in Fts, 3 pts throughout the games.

    Gilas is lucky that socmed is busy right now with Hidelyn Diaz and PRRD's SONA, or else Gilas will be a easy target, it also helps that there is no local broadcast of the game or else average pinoy fans would be calling for thebhead of Tab Baldwin

    we're finally getting a rhythm by playing an almost same ugly style like them.

    Egypt hefty #5 is like an athletic Heruela on steroids.

    Breakout game for Isaac Go. The lone bright spot.

    Got to give it to Egypt. Their defense is quick to close out then on offense their bigs are always in a good position to score or put back.

It's definitely a cohesion issue, the players seems to be at a lost on how to relieve the defensive pressure from their teammates even if they are aware of the textbook plays drawn up for them, a textbook symptom of unfamiliarity with each other. It'll take a few games to get their mojo down, these boys are asleep, probably got too comfortable in the hotel rooms.

    I hope this is our only bad shooting night. The others, need to get open shots and make them.

    Egypt 21 assists 10 turnovers
    Gilas 15 assists 15 turnovers

    We outrebounded them 49-41

    Gilas shot 52% from 2 but shot an abysmal 14% from 3.

    I wonder why Tamayo, Navarro and Matt weren't given much minutes today. Tamayo would have been a good matchup against Egypt's mobile bigs.

    Thirdy is all effort and athleticism. Not much skill or BBIQ.

    Because they are treating this tourney nothing but just a practice game as we saw on their effort.

    there's a beer brand at the back of the FIBA jersey hahaha, plus maybe not sponsored by the outfitter. more likely the names of the players and jersey numbers were not tailored on time.

    Kai was a big loss. Him and Kouame tag teaming and pairing up was good on defense and offense. The new guys present new chemistry issues. I liked some of what I saw from Dave. His defense was good. His offense was decent. Had a good pass. Shot when he was open. But he still has that bad tendency to stop his dribble while in the paint. I think he needs to do a floater or pass it before he reaches the area under the rim. That dribble into the paint then pump fake pet move of his will not work internationally.

    When players fail to convert open and easy shots whether it is an open 3 or a layup it will mess up with their rhythm. I just don't think it was a cohesive issue, sure it is one of the factors but it was not a major reason why they lost. Failing to hit open shots from well executed sets by the team will lead to hesitation and overthinking. Believe me, it would have been a different game if they converted the open shots at least. Shooting 34 percent in the charity stripe and 14 percent is on the shooting not the cohesion. Anyways it was an ugly game for gilas and I do think that there is no way they are replicating this shooting performance. We did outrebound them by 7. Looking forward for tomorrow's game.

    Noticed this as well but at least this issue is correctable, he just needs to get rid of this habit.
