Philippine NT to play vs. NBA All-Stars

Philippine NT

Smart Gilas Pilipinas (Philippine NT) is set to play in a charity game against a select group of NBA “All-Stars” this coming July 22-23. The event which is being called “Gilas’ Last Home Stand” will feature NBA stars such as Blake Griffin, Damian Lillard, DeMar DeRozan and Paul Pierce. The game is geared to help the Philippine national team to prepare for the upcoming 2014 FIBA World Cup which will be held in Spain this August. The country’s best showing at the event was taking the Bronze medal, way back in 1954. The Philippines qualified for the event by finishing in second place in the 2013 FIBA Asia Championships.
