Gilas Pilipinas vs Kuwait FIBA Asia 2015: Live Scores and Results

Gilas Pilipinas' entry into the FIBA Asia Championship 2015 Second Round (scheduled on September 27-29, 2015) will be assured once the team wins its game vs Kuwait happening now, Sep 25, in Changsa, China. Check out my live blog updates below of Kuwait vs Philippines game at the FIBA Asia 2015! (You can watch this exciting clash live via TV5 and in the cable channel Basketball TV).

While it's most likely that Team Philippines, having a 1-0 record in Group B team standings, will already advance to the 2nd Round even if they lose to Kuwait, who's still win-less at 0-2, it's still best to win vs Kuwait and grab at least the 2nd seed in Group B (since Palestine is most likely to get 1st seed in the group, currently undefeated at 2-0 before game tonight vs Hong Kong).

So are you guys ready? Kuwait vs Philippines is about to start. Good luck Gilas Pilipinas!

The starting 5 for the Philippines are Andray Blatche, Gabe Norwood, Jayson Castro, Dondon Hontiveros and Ranidel De Ocampo. Starters for the opponent are Borhamah, Hasan, Alhamidi, Aljuma'h and Alsaeid.
