The second tune-up game between Gilas Pilipinas and Jordan was stopped near the halfway mark of the fourth quarter after the Jordanian national team walked out.
Gilas was ahead 82-73 with 6:26 left when Jordan head coach Joey Stiebing called out the rest of his team to head out of the court.
Stiebing and Gilas coach Yeng Guiao got into a heated exchange before the walk out happened.

“The coach said he was going to take my ass. I was challenging him to take my ass but he didn’t do it,” Guiao told reporters after the game Wednesday night before a packed crowd at Meralco Gym.
Jordan beat Gilas, 98-92, in their first scrimmage on Monday.
The Filipinos rallied from 19 points down after a big third quarter led by LA Tenorio, Christian Standhardinger, Marcio Lassiter and Stanley Pringle.
