WATCH: Gilas Pilipinas vs Tunisia Highlights [2019 FIBA World Cup | September 6, 2019]

Already down in the classification round, Gilas Pilipinas still found no relief.

The Nationals rammed into a torrid-shooting Tunisian side and went down to a 67-86 loss in Group N classification matchup in the 2019 FIBA World Cup at the Wukesong Sports Arena in Beijing.

Team Philippines turned the ball over its first two possessions, allowing Tunisia to a 6-0 start, and the Nationals hardly got into the fight, staying winless in four games in this FIBA showpiece.

The African power went on coast-to-coast en route to the emphatic victory that put them in contention for a high finish among those fighting for 17th to 32nd spots.

With their fourth straight loss, the Filipinos, meanwhile, bombed out of the fight for a Tokyo Olympic entry among the Asian bets.

What’s left for coach Yeng Guiao and his troops is to salvage a feel-good win versus Iran at the close of the classifications Sunday.
