2018 Asian Games Schedule, Free Live Stream & Updates. Gilas Pilipinas vs. Syria - Game Preview - 2018 Asian Games (VIDEO). The Philippines will face Syria in the battle for 5th place of the 5x5 men's basketball competition in the 2018 Asian Games on August 31 (Friday, 7:30PM, PHL time) at the Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) Basketball Hall in Jakarta.

"Syria is a strong team. Let's not make the mistake of underestimating this team, They have a seven-footer (Abdulwahab Alhamwi) who is mobile and can shoot from the outside. When he gets the ball inside, there will be nothing we can do. We have to pay special attention to him but he's surrounded by guys who can also score. They are solid until the seventh man. They have the material to pose a threat so we need to be alert and careful. We can't be overconfident of complacent. It's a good simulation of our game against Iran because Hamed Haddadi and their seven-footer play very similar styles. We will have a better understanding of how to play Iran in the next FIBA window. We're looking forward to the next challenge, the Syria game and then we'll start preparing for the next window." Gilastopainters head coach Yeng Guiao told Carlo Pamintuan of ESPN5.
