MANILA, Philippines—The Philippines overcame a shaky start and clawed back for a 21-19 semifinal victory to stun Thailand in the Southeast Asian Games 3×3 men’s basketball competition on Sunday.

Joseph Sedurifa hit three long shots in succession, including the one that upset its tormentors in Hanoi, Vietnam, last year.

The win sends Gilas to the gold medal match at 12:30 p.m. where it plays Cambodia.
