Gilas 5 dominates India
as win streak continues

The Philippines caught fire in the second half to blow past India, 99-65, at the close of Group E action in the 2015 FIBA Asia Championship.

The Filipinos topped their group and will face Lebanon in the quarterfinals tomorrow.

India had a good start, leading after the first quarter, 17-16, before the Filipinos got their bearings and proceeded to take over. Coach Tab Baldwin's wards had a strong second period to take the lead at the halftime break, and broke the game wide open in the last two quarters, building a lead as high as 37 points.
