9:36 anyway, my comments: I have no doubts about RP teams abilities. However they seem to be playing tentative and unsure of themselves.
9:36 [Comment From chueey]
pre gud eve thanks for the update
9:36 [Comment From Guest]
thanks?
9:37 this is very unusual for me to see, considering how confident they look when I see them play in the pba.
9:37 in other words, they dont look like stars.
9:37 are you guys abroad?
9:37 [Comment From Guest]
japan has more game plan than them
9:37 [Comment From chueey]
your right pre mukhang kabado sila nung 1st qtr. pero i believe at sana mag bounce back sila
9:38 the japanese dont look very smooth. I’m sure we are far smoother and more athletic than they.
9:38 [Comment From chueey]
no im just here in the phi. sakto lang ang blogging ko sayo
9:39 [Comment From Guest]
japan ?minaster nila kaka shoot sa 3 points walang 2log
9:39 so far, i think 3 pt shots are more or less even. Pennisi has sunk 3 3s already.
9:40 we are losing in rebounding, and i saw 2 or 3 almost uncontested japanese drives in halfcourt plays.
9:40 [Comment From bosswa]
kaya yan mga bro japan lang yan.
9:40 [Comment From chueey]
actually i didn’t see the japanese play.im just reading your comments. Sana mas stop ng RP yung outside gunner nila.
9:41 both teams are playing same type of offense, which is pass until you find open man. No picks, no rolls, or at least none i can see yet.
9:41 [Comment From Guest]
hi anybody know where i can find live streaming in the net?
9:41 [Comment From chueey]
tapos attackihin natin sila sa loob para ma foul yung malalaki nila.
9:41 maybe try justin.tv for streaming
9:41 [Comment From Guest]
pareho lng natin cla in size. kayang kaya nila yan
9:42 onga
9:42 [Comment From Guest]
thanks man
9:42 [Comment From bosswa]
open court mas ok phil kaya they need more rebounds
9:42 i also saw 2 or 3 rp turnovers from botched fastbreak plays.
9:43 that is very unlike miller or norwood. those two hardly make mistakes in open court. thats why i’m surprised to see them play like this.
9:43 anyway, tignan natin.
9:44 [Comment From bosswa]
i think miller should shoot more from outside parang ilang sya eh
9:44 ok end of halftime. this game is flying by.
9:44 [Comment From Guest]
pinaghandaan yan ng japan. dapat inanticipate nila

Thoughts On UST and Japeth's dunkfest – I mean, Phi vs. Sri Lanka

Been sick lately and it hasn’t been fun to say the least. Hasn’t stopped me from watching a bunch of games though, opinions on which forthwith:

UST – DLSU: I liveblogged that one and obviously, watched it from tip to double overtime end. Much like most observers I was going to give it to UST but let me say it again, over and over: I’ve learned better than to pre-judge a Franz Pumaren team. Year after year he comes in with a seemingly rag-tag bunch of guys from nowhere and he either gets to the Finals or takes the whole thing, so I’m not gonna fall into the same trap this year.
