Gilas Pilipinas wins game vs Japan at Jones Cup 2015

The Philippines' Gilas Pilipinas has just won its game vs Japan at the 2015 William Jones Cup in Taipei, Taiwan. It was aired live via TV5 and Aksyon TV.

Japan vs Philippines Quarter Scores: 10-11, 25-29, 44-46, 60-75

Points scored in every quarter:
Japan - 10 pts, 15 pts, 19 pts, 16 pts
Philippines - 11 pts, 18 pts, 17 pts, 29 pts

It was the 2nd game in Day 5 of Jones Cup 2015 after the Iran vs USA game held earlier, which surprisingly had USA as the winner, giving Iran its first ever loss in the tournament.

Thanks, that the results for Japan (who's on the losing streak) vs the Philippines didn't turn out surprising as well, though it was a close game from 1st to 3rd quarter, and it's only in the 4th quarter that the Philippine team had a comfortable double-digit lead.

After Japan, another tough opponent is up next for the Philippines, and it's Iran, the one who caused their heartbreaking loss at the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship.

With 3-1, Team Philippines is now 2nd, just behind Iran (4-1), in the team standings, as of this afternoon.

Remaining games for today at the 37th William Jones Cup are South Korea vs New Zealand at 5PM, then Russia vs New Zealand at 7PM. -
