ASIAN GAMES BY THE NUMBERS: Hello darkness, my old friend

The dreaded Korean curse continues to live on. Gilas Pilipinas suffered another demoralizing defeat at the hands of its greatest basketball rivals, this time in the 2018 Asian Games. This latest showdown pretty much followed the script we're all familiar with as South Korea's hot shooting from deep ended up being our downfall in the end. [Related: ASIAN GAMES: The curse lives as Korea beats Gilas Pilipinas again] But of course, there's more to our loss than just Korea shooting an insane amount of three-point shots. We'll try to break all of that down here before the Philippines tries to salvage 5th place in the Jakarta games.   56 Total years the Korean curse in the Asian Games has been going on. With today's loss, that number will stretch to 60 as our next chance will be in the 2022 Games. The last time the Philippines beat South Korea in the Asian Games was in 1962. Don't believe anyone who tells you the Korean curse is not real.   1 Total number of wins by the Philippines against South Korea in their last 10 games in a major tournament. The game we won was that memorable home stand in the 2013 FIBA-Asia Championships to advance to the 2014 FIBA World Cup. That was five years ago. Last 10 Philippines-Korea games in major tournaments: Advantage Korea #AsianGames | @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/Emf8Td5MhY — Paul Kennedy Lintag (@paullintag8) August 27, 2018   25 Total points for Jordan Clarkson for Gilas Pilipinas against South Korea. Safe to say, Clarkson has delivered in his intial stint for Team Philippines. The Fil-am combo guard has delivered everything except a win. Jordan is currently 0-2 for Gilas, losing to China and South Korea.     15 Total points for Jordan Clarkson in the third quarter against South Korea. Just like the China game, Clarkson struggled in the first half before exploding in the third, giving the Philippines a lead as hig as eight against the Koreans. But just like the China game, Clarkson and the rest of Gilas faltered in the fourth and the Koreans take this win on to the semifinals of the Asian Games. No medal for Gilas Pilipinas in the 2018 Asian Games. The Philippines needs one win to surpass its finish from 2014 and two wins to take 5th place. Jordan Clarkson (25 pts vs. KOR) is still looking for his first win with Gilas 📸 Associated Press #AsianGames | @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/XoDrvSzYHb — Paul Kennedy Lintag (@paullintag8) August 27, 2018 18 Total offensive rebounds for South Korea against Gilas Pilipinas. The Philippines actually didn't do that bad in the rebounding department, losing the entire battle by a total of five rebounds. However, the Koreans had possessions in the second half where they had anywhere from 3-5 attempts at the basket. That certainly helped with their rhythm a little bit and the reigning Asian Games champions started to hit shots in the fourth period, leading to another win over the Philippines.   24 Total number of three-point shots made for both teams. Gilas and Korea each hit 12 treys and the Philippines actually shot better at 41 percent compared to 35 percent for the Koreans. Three-point story South Korea: 12/34 Gilas Pilipinas: 12/29 #AsianGames | @abscbnsports — Paul Kennedy Lintag (@paullintag8) August 27, 2018 Does that count as a win?   3 Total number of three-pointers for Korean reserve Jeon Junbeom, all in the fourth quarter. Jeon didn't play meaningful minutes until the second half and he ended up being the dagger that broke the heart of Gilas. The Korean shooter first drilled a transition three to start the fourth quarter before a corner strike gave the Koreans a 77-70 lead with 5:16 left. The final shot came with exactly two minutes to go as a booming straightaway three pushed Korea up, 89-76.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
