For a brief time in the Philippines’ eventual loss to Jordan in the 19th Asian Games (Asiad) on Saturday, Gilas showed grit and poise in overhauling a 12-point halftime deficit and even forcing a pair of deadlocks in the third quarter.

There was no reframing the eventual 87-62 loss that night that was felt all the way back home, but national coach Tim Cone is using those fleeting moments to fuel the belief that the Nationals are capable of taking down a seasoned Falcons squad replete with World Cup veterans should that chance present itself again.
