GILAS Pilipinas continued its winning streak by beating Vietnam 107-52 ahead of the most awaited match against Indonesia, which also carries a 5-0 win-loss record on Thursday at the Smart Araneta.

On Game Day No. 6 of SEABA 2017, Gilas, without its naturalized Andre Blatche, had a slow start against the fiery Vietnamese squad who have four three-point shooters. Blatche was rested by coach Chot Reyes ahead of a match against Indonesians.

But in the second quarter, Gilas showed its true colors and let Vietnam bites the dust en route to a 53 point victory.

The most awaited match is between Gilas and Indonesia on Thursday where the yet to lose ball club had two naturalized players.
