Pilipinas gives taiwan a dose of a deadly 3 point barrage

Powerade Pilipinas Beats the hell out of taiwan 77-70 Thanks to a barrage of 3 Pointers from the past 3 MVPs James Yap, Willie Miller and Jayjay Helterbrand. Taiwan led in the opening moments of the game. James had a game high 23 points Miller with 17 and Helterbrand with 8. For a team which was usually struggling with 3 pointers, has been an exceptional with 15/30 from beyond the arc (50%) which was even better than their field goal percentage which was12/35 (34.3). Not only did they shoot well from beyond the arc, they gave taipei a woeful 1/15 shooting from the field.

Taipei kept the game close through the efforts of their long haired player but The Thriller Miller sank a dagger 3 through the faces of taiwan as well as the watching china squad.

Tomorrow they take on the defending champions in Iran. Hoping for a good shooting rhytym like this one and we have a fighting chance.
