Coming off a defeat, the Rain or Shine knew exactly what they needed to do for them to avoid facing complication come playoff time and they did it right and they did it now. The Elasto Painters immediately returned to their winning form after dominating the Alaska Aces who was missing the services of Calvin Abueva, 112-82 at the Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo City.
Knowing that the importance of this game with regards to their playoffs positioning, the Elasto Painters went back to work after wasting an opportunity against the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings. They continuously frustrated the offense of the Aces, a team who were hoping to finish an unforgettable conference on a high note. Rain or Shine, despite the struggles of import, J’Nathan Bullock during the early stages of the game, managed to hold a double-digit lead during the first half alone.
To give credit to the players of Alex Compton, the Aces were able to keep within striking distance during the first quarter and they even managed to take the lead before the Elasto Painters strengthened their defense and the Aces started to miss shots that they normally make. And true to form, the Elasto Painters’ defense limited the Aces to make only 36% of their shots in the first half alone while they made the most of their opportunity, shooting 46% in the field. Even as the Aces sliced up the lead to 16 points during the early stages of the 3rd quarter, Raymund Amazan, Jericho Cruz and the rest of the Elasto Painters continued to pound on the points to bring the lead up to 24 again with 6:43 left in the 3rd. That lead eventually ballooned to 31 points heading into the 4th quarter.
To sum it up, Rain or Shine did everything that Coach Caloy Garcia wanted them to do. In fact, Bullock didn’t have to produce big numbers in this particular game. Beau Belga for one, scored points off thebench. Chris Tiu played one of his best games this conference to finish with 9 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. For the Aces on the other hand, the absence of Abueva was proven to be too much to handle as LaDontae Henton led all scorers with 20 points on 8 of 17 shooting night including 1 out of 5 from the three-point line. Only Henton and Tony dela Cruz scored in double figures as the latter finished with 12 points. Bullock, for his part, led Rain or Shine with 14 points and 4 rebounds but had some reinforcements this time around.

Smart Gilas tune up games, against weaklings


by: powsalud|powcast.net

Smart Gilas vs Cebu
Perhaps Smart Gilas budget was cut down that is why they have to go down south and  play basketball against lower level basketball teams or perhaps they just need more emotional game so they could feel good about themselves. Smart Gilas tune up against local teams in Cebu and Mandaue was a big hit however with full packed audience in the venues, it still proves that our National basketball team still got the charm to pull a good number of fans. Mandaue City Sports and Cultural Center and the the University of San Agustin Gym in Iloilo City are the venues. 
Hopefully when this tour is done they will have enough money and enough  moral to boost them to achieving their goals. Frankly the Azkals fever or Soccer mania is over shadowing basketball nowadays and with the support of network giant like ABS-CBN our local basketball  league and the Smart Gilas basketball team needs a lot work so they could regain its full charms back.

Rajko Toroman is confident that the national team is strong enough to win the (SEABA) Championship


by: powsalud|powcast.net

For hardcore Basketball  fans we all know that the (SEABA) Southeast Asian Basketball Association Championship tournament is a weak tournament. We are not even sending our top players or team to these tournament  and they still win. (source)

And now the Smart Gilas, after the disappointment of loosing in their own country, the Smart Gilas is off to Jakarta to play in the SEABA championship tournament. Against Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. No real treat here so if Smart Gilas don’t win the championship they should disband it. The memory of their last tournament still hunt me as I expect no less than a championship but ended up getting nothing, not even a bronze. Gone are the days of the Allan Caidics, Vergel Meneses, Keneth Duremdes, Alvin Patrimonio, Benjie Paras, Johnny Abarientos and the Centennial team. The Tournament in Jakarta should be an easy one and if Rajko will not be able to bring the championship we should fire him already.

Frustrating lost for the Philippine National Basketball Team!


by: powsalud|powcast.net

Home court Advantage, reinforcements from the PBA(Taulava and Hontiveros), American reinforcement (Douthit), foreign coach(Toroman),Well endorsed team with a high profile financial support, International trainings, What else?
All these and more are nothing because Smart Gilas had failed once again, and they failed big time. They know that they needed to win this game but I guess they cant. After a very successful and impressive run in the prelims with no defeats, Filipino fans had high hopes that we have a big chance of finally winning this tournament.

But the Iran National team spoiled our big celebration and once again and again and again and again, I am not sure how many times I have felt this frustration with this team and I cannot believe that after all those hype we will end up being in the battle for third place.

I like Smart Gilas and I know that they are a young team with a long way to go, but as a fan I cannot hide my frustrations with the result of the game. However I still want to give credit to Smart Gilas basketball team for being very competitive in the game and for giving Iranians a good fight. 

I always wonder when will we see the Philippines back on top of the basketball scene at least in Asia? What is next for the Smart Gilas?

The Scores:

Mahram Iran 80 – Bahrami 19, Samb 17, Kamrani 17, Williams 16, Eslamieh 11, Sahakian 0, Kardoost 0, Babak 0, Davari 0, Davoudichegani 0.

(PBA) Douthit-less Gilas survive Tigers to join Texters in playoffs

Pilipinas-Smart Gilas proved there is life even without Marcus Douthit.

Playing with urgency and tenacity, the Nationals survived the absence of their dominant big man by rallying back from 23 points down to pull the rug from under the Powerade Tigers, 98-97, and formalize their entry into the playoffs of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Sunday night at the Araneta Coliseum.

JV Casio topscored for the national team with 29 points, the last of which turned out to be the game winner, as the wily point guard dribbled past two Powerade defenders and scooped a one-hander under the outstretched arms of Francis Allera in the final 9.3 seconds of the tightly-fought contest.

The Tigers, who led by as many as 23 points at 40-17 in the second quarter, had two chances of winning the match, but missed on both opportunities.

Import Martin Zeno failed to ring the bell on his turn-around jumper, and then Allera, who got the loose ball after Japeth Aguilar failed to control possession, botched a point-blank shot as the buzzer sounded.

Douthit, who was in uniform but didn’t see action owing to a sprained ankle, exchanged high-fives with his teammates at centercourt as the Nationals basked in the glory of their sixth win in seven games to join Talk `N Text into the playoffs of the import-laden tournament.

This team has a lot of qualities,” said a proud Pilipinas-Smart Gilas coach Rajko Toroman later.”The boys know how to play. We reacted well in the end. Now people will think that this is not only a Marcus Douthit team.”

The 6-foot-11 Douthit averaged 20.5 points and conference highs of 17.5 rebounds and three blocks per game before spraining his ankle in the Nationals’ lone loss in the conference – a 98-90 setback against B-Meg Derby Ace.

But in his absence, the rest of the Pilipinas-Smart Gilas members stepped up, with Marcio Lassiter coming through with 21 points, Chris Lutz adding 11 and Japeth Aguilar chipping in 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Pilipinas-Smart Gilas trailed 42-55 at the half, but outscored Powerade, 34-16, in the third to take a 76-71 lead entering the final 12 minutes of play.

The Tigers regained the upper hand at 91-86, but the Nationals tied the count at 93-93 on a one-hander by Aldrech Ramos.

Gary David broke the tie with an open jumper at the top of the key, 95-93, before Chris Tiu hit a huge three-pointer with 36.8 seconds to go, giving the Nationals a 96-95 lead.

Zeno gave Powerade the lead back for the last time at 97-96 but failed to complete the and-one play, before Casio came through with his game winner.

Powerade fell to 2-6 (win-loss) and virtually kissed its playoffs hopes goodbye, stretching its streak of non-playoff appearances to six.

Zeno led the Tigers with 28 points while David added 23. – KY, RCJ, GMA News

The scores:

Smart Gilas 98 – Casio 29, Lassiter 21, Lutz 11, Aguilar 10, Tiu 7, Ramos 7, Baracael 5, Slaughter 4, Barroca 4, Ballesteros 0.

Powerade 97 – Zeno 28, David 23, Espino 10, Lanete 9, Quinahan 8, Macapagal 5, Allera 4, Antonio 4, Reyes 3, Cruz 3, Anthony 0.

Quarters: 14-34, 42-55, 76-71, 98-97

Smart Gilas Pilipinas defeats Alaska in OT, remains undefeated in PBA Commisioner’s Cup

source: gmanews.tv

Smart Gilas Pilipinas scored the first six points in overtime to outlast Alaska, 91-89, and stay unbeaten in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Friday night at the Araneta Coliseum.

Towering Marcus Douthit remained an intimidating presence for Gilas inside, accounting for five of the team’s seven points in the extra period, including a breakaway, two-handed slam dunk that capped a 6-0 run and put the Nationals on top for good, 90-84.


Douthit had a 47-minute stint on the floor and finished with 23 points and 19 big rebounds.

Fresh from beating reigning all-Filipino champion Talk ‘N Text, the national team won its second straight game, against a ball club considered as the most systematic team in the PBA today.

By inflicting the Aces their first loss in the tournament, Smart Gilas now shares the early lead with Rain or Shine.

It’s still a long tournament, so we can’t be complacent,” said national team captain Chris Tiu, who had 17 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in another all-around performance. “It’s a good confidence builder for us, but we can’t let our guard down.”

Douthit was 3-for-10 from the foul line, but made three of his last four attempts, including a split in the final 15.4 seconds of overtime that sealed the deal for the Nationals, 91-86.

Alaska sent the game into overtime by pouring six of the game’s last seven points in the final minute of regulation, wiping away a five-point deficit to tie the count at 84-all on a strong drive to the hoop by L.A. Tenorio.

The Nationals had 2.4 seconds left to make a game-winning play, but Douthit’s short jumper just hit the front rim as the buzzer sounded.

Tenorio led the Aces with 22 points, while import L.D. Williams added 12, including a rim-rattling one-handed slam dunk early in the fourth that sparked Alaska’s comeback from a 55-67 deficit.

The Aces still trailed, 78-83, after Douthit made his first two free throws for the night, when a soft follow-up of Sonny Thoss’ jumper ignited that telling endgame Alaska run in regulation.

But Alaska went silent in the first three minutes of the extra period, leading to a six-point cluster by the Nationals, capped by Douthit’s back-to-back baskets. – JVP, GMA KY, News

The scores:

Smart Gilas 91 – Douthit 23, Tiu 17, Lassiter 11, Lutz 10, Barroca 10, Ramos 9, Casio 5, Aguilar 4, Slaughter 2, Ababou 0.

Alaska 89 – Tenorio 22, Williams 14, Dela Cruz 14, De Vance 11, Thoss 11, Baguio 10, Custodio 3, Borboran 2, Eman 2, Dulay 0.

Quarters: 24-24, 37-44, 63-53, 84-84, 91-89
