Gilas Pilipinas vs Kazakhstan Full Game Replay Video
The Philippine national men’s basketball team, SMART Gilas Pilipinas, used its biggest strengths — speed and shooting — to take down a tall and athletic Kazakhstan side, 92-89, on Friday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.
Jayson Castro sliced and diced his way to 20 points in just 18 minutes, while Jeff Chan waxed hot for 14 of his 20 points in the first half to lead the Gilas Pilipinas squad in its final tuneup match before the FIBA Asia Championship.
But the victory came at a price for Gilas, who saw stalwarts Castro and Ranidel De Ocampo suffer ankle injuries during the game.
