FIBA: Thirdy stars as Gilas pulls away late in win over Indonesia

A ton of fouls and early penalty situation for two straight quarters slowed down Gilas Pilipinas but the national team got the job done on the road nonetheless. The Philippines is on the board in the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers, pulling away late from Indonesia to score a 100-70 win Sunday at the Britama Arena in Jakarta. Thirdy Ravena starred for Gilas Pilipinas, leading the national team with 23 points on 50 percent shooting. He also had eight rebounds, three assists, and two blocks in 23 minutes off the bench. As Gilas struggled with its foul situation in the second and third quarters, keeping Indonesia dangerously close, it was Thirdy that was getting buckets for the Philippines. An Arki Wisnu layup put Indonesia within four, 51-55, but that proved to be the closest the hosts would get as the Philippines responded with a 12-2 run to close the third. Gilas finally pulled away in the fourth quarter, leading by as many as 32 points for the win. RR Pogoy started to open the floodgates for the Philippines, scoring nine of his 16 points early in the quarter. Kiefer Ravena and CJ Perez helped add the finishing touches in Gilas Pilipinas' first win of these qualifiers. After Thirdy and Pogoy, Perez scored 11 for Gilas while Kiefer and Juan Gomez de Liano added 10 points each. Andakara Prastawa Dhyaksa led all scorers with 28 points for Indonesia while Abraham Grahita added 17 points for the hosts. With the win, Gilas joins longtime nemesis South Korea for the early lead in Group A standings with indentical 1-0 records. Pending new updates on Gilas Pilipinas cancelled home game against Thailand, the national team's next official dates for these qualifiers will come in November. The Philippines will be on the road against South Korea on Nov. 27 and against Thailand on Nov. 30.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

FIBA: Gilas unlikely for Parks with TNT contract up in the air

After playing less than a full conference with TNT, Ray Parks Jr. turned into basically a restricted free agent thanks to the two-conference deal he previously signed with his original team, Blackwater. While the former no. 2 pick can basically sign with any PBA team, the KaTropa hold rights to first refusal. No deal has been made public between Parks Jr. and TNT but the KaTropa are confident they can reach into an agreement soon. "We’re still negotiating his contract. In the TNT side, we’re still negotiating," Gilas and TNT team manager Gabby Cui said regarding Parks Jr. "I think we’re close so hopefully we can come to terms by the end of the week," he added. With Parks Jr.'s contract situation, he's pretty much out of Gilas Pilipinas to start the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers. Parks Jr. is included in the original 24-man pool against Thailand and Indonesia but he hasn't been to any practice as of Wednesday. "No word on him joining Gilas," Cui said.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
