PBA Media Bureau

On the eve of the Philippines-Malaysia tiff, coach Chot Reyes lauded the Malaysians as a gritty young team that plays with a good brand of defense.

Gilas Pilipinas obliterated it from the get-go and kept its brutal beating of the SEABA Championship opposition with a 106-51 walloping of the Malaysians at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Sunday night.

The Nationals roared to a third straight lopsided win before taking a rest Monday. They plunge back into action versus Thailand Tuesday.

Andray Blatche, Matthew Wright, Terrence Romeo, Troy Rosario, Jayson Williams and RR Pogoy led Gilas in the scoring parade versus the Malaysians, scoring at least 10 apiece.

As in their first two outings, the Filipinos had the game in the bag at the half at 61-26. – PBA

The scores:

PHILIPPINES 106 – Rosario 13, Blatche 13, Wright 12, Romeo 12, Pogoy 10, William 10, Abueva 9, Malicsi 7, Aguilar 7, Almazan 6, Fajardo 5, Jalalon 2.

MALAYSIA 51 – Heng 12, Ting 10, Liaw 8, Chin 6, Ang 5, Teo 5, Mak 2, Chan 1, Choong 1, Choo 1, Ong 0, Liew 0.

Quarters: 36-17, 61-26, 88-35, 106-51.
