As many have expected, team Philippines went superior versus the team Singapore in their 2019 SEAG opener a couple of nights ago.
That 52-point blowout went into realization when the guys of coach Tim Cone didn’t perform like they were sent to play in an All-Star game.
“I feel the guys came out and took a serious approach, not taking it like an All-Star game where you can take up any shot and play defense when you feel like it. The guys took it seriously. I think they want to show the country that they’re gonna take a serious approach and respect the game. When you respect the game, you respect your opponent,” Cone said.
Though Gilas made a brilliant outing against team Singapore, yet, coach Cone looked into the details of the game and still finds some holes which needed an immediate fix.
“I don’t think we played our best basketball last Wednesday. We’re a little bit herky-jerky; we weren’t smooth offensively and we had to make an adjustment at halftime but honestly, I believe we’ll get better and better as the Games go along,” he said.
If team Philippines has winning momentum coming in tonight’s game, their opponent, team Vietnam also has its own.
The Vietnamese are coming from a mammoth 79-point win against team Myanmar.
Likewise, if Gilas has several Fil-Foreigners in its lineup, team Vietnam also has some of their own that can possibly give a good match-up.
“Vietnam is one program that has really improved with the addition of five Viet-Americans and one Viet-Swede since the last time in the Games…They got six, seven players who are really good athletes and really know the game. They played in the US so they’ve been raised in that kind of basketball and they’re bringing it to Vietnam so I think they’re gonna be very, very tough,” said Cone.
