Wuhan, China – The absence of wingmen Chris Lutz and Marcio Lassiter were clearly felt when China (2-0) drubbed the Pilipinas Smart-Gilas (1-1), 75-60, in the 26th FIBA Asia Championship. The Chinese used its height advantage to the hilt as they more than doubled the Philippine‘s output in the fist half, 43-21. The Gilas tried to rally in the second half to no avail as China took advantage of the absence of Lutz and Lassiter, as their not cleared by FIBA Asia to play in the tournament.

A fist fight almost ensued between the coaching staffs of the two teams as China coach Donewald apparently called Gilas coach  Rajko Toroman an a$%hole when Toroman was talking to the tournament director during a break.

Marcus Douhit lead the Gilas with 17 markers and 10 rebounds and he was able to somehow negated the numbers of  Yi Jianlian (Washington Wizards) who finished with 20 points and 17 rebounds. Chris Tiu finished with 12 points.

The scores:
China (75) – Yi 20, Wang 16, Sun 15, Zhu 13, Zhang 3, Liu 2, Zhang B 2, Yi L 2, Ding 1, Yu 1, Su 0, Xirelijiang 0.
Smart Gilas (60) – Douthit 17, Tiu 12, Williams 6, Casio 5, Alapag 5, Baracael 4, Aguilar 4, De Ocampo 3, Barroca 2, Taulava 2,.

Quarterscores: 22-13: 43-21; 55-40; 75-60
