Recipe in order to beat China


We are down to the Top 8 teams. All games starting the quarterfinals will be knockout games. I am an optimist and I give my all out support for our National Basketball Team, Smart Gilas. Watching the games of China, I know they are beatable but Smart Gilas should have an almost perfect game in order to beat China if they reach the finals.

Recipe in order to beat China:
– Less than 10 turnovers
– Around 7-10 three pointers
– 80% Free Throw shooting
– 50% 2-point Field Goal
– Yi Jianlian must be in foul trouble
– More than 20 assists for Smart Gilas
– More than 8 steals
– More than 12 fast break points
